LG Releases Next LCD in Scarlet Line-up

Posted by at 10:57 am on October 14, 2008

LG  has announced the launch of its new LCD TV LG80, which is specially designed as an ideal home theatre TV with superb sound system and unparalleled picture quality.

LG80 is part of LG’s Scarlet series, along with the LG60 and LG70, and has carefully tuned speakers that automatically slide out of the side of the set when it is turned on. LG incorporated a 3.1-channel virtual surround sound system into the LG80, designed to create an immersive experience without the need for external speakers.

“We developed the LG80 based on insights that we found from customer surveying. The results indicated that customers want a TV that delivers more than just great picture quality. They also want a TV with superb sound quality,” said Simon Kang, head of LG Digital Display Company. “We expect this TV to really resonate with young people who like to entertain friends at home while watching movies and sports or playing video games. It also has the features requested by people upgrading from older CRT or projection sets to flat panel TVs.”

A total of four speakers make up the system. Extending from either side of the TV are the right and left channel speakers, meant to help create a sense of space. In the middle is a center channel speaker dedicated to sound in the human vocal range, designed to make it easier to understand conversations and dialogue. A woofer, located on the back of the TV, is meant to enhance bass, making music sound fuller and allowing viewers to feel the action in hard-hitting sports and movies.

The LG80 is designed along the same lines as LG’s other Scarlet series TVs, the LG60 and LG70. These TVs blend superior technology with exciting design to create masterpieces that are changing the way that people look at TVs and experience television sound.

The Scarlet LG80 brings viewers a high resolution display, with 1080p full HD and a 30,000:1 contrast ratio designed to give brighter whites, deeper blacks and more vibrant colors overall.

The Scarlet LG80 has three AV modes that optimize the TV’s picture for movies, video games or sports by a single click of a remote control.

With a USB 2.0 connection, it is easy to access to MP3 files and connect a memory card reader to the TV and create an onscreen slideshow from JPEG files or watch digital video files. Two HDMI 1.3 ports allow for digital video and audio connections for devices like DVD players, cable boxes and game consoles.
