LG’s CINEMA 3D TVs use LG’s patented Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology, which LG says enhances the overall viewing experience. FPR provides a crisp and sharp 3D image when viewed through its lightweight polarized glasses, allowing viewers to watch the very best in 3D entertainment for longer, and in greater comfort.
“LG’s goal of ensuring added comfort with a crystal-clear and smooth 3D image is certified Flicker-free by TÜV and Intertek, two world-renowned technology testing agencies from Europe,” said Mr. Kim. “By addressing the issue of flickering and cross-talk, LG has ensured that dizziness or even nausea that could affect people watching 3D TV is no longer an issue.”
To further enhance the image, CINEMA 3D’s Light Boost ensures 3D pictures are outstandingly bright and clear. LG’s FPR technology also allows flexible viewing positions and a wide viewing angle making CINEMA 3D ideal for watching in larger groups. With an advanced 2D to 3D conversion, viewers will also never be short of top-quality 3D content.
LG’s CINEMA 3D TV is viewed through glasses that tip the scales at just 16 grams and have no electrical parts. Therefore, they are free of electromagnetic waves which might cause health issues and never need charging. The glasses’ reasonable price means viewers can buy as many pairs as they need for friends and family, while people who already wear glasses can add clip-on versions to their spectacles for greater comfort and convenience.
The very latest innovation from LG isn’t just about a superior 3D TV experience, it also incorporates a number of Smart TV functions, giving users even more access to content through the very best in connectivity.
