LG shines light on world's brightest 3D TV
Twice the brightness of conventional 3D screens
While some manufacturers are still grappling with designs for their first 3D TVs, LG has surged ahead with creation of what it’s claimed is the world’s brightest 3D-capable telly.
LG's 3D telly employs “enhanced brightness” technology
The firm’s succeeded in developing a 1080p, 23in LCD panel with “enhanced brightness” technology, which it said helps generate twice the on-screen brightness of a conventional 3D LCD panel.
LG’s a little brief about the set’s technical specifications, but - to give you a rough idea – a 42in Philips LCD with 3D technology has a brightness of 500cd/m2.
The LG screen’s superior brightness was achieved by embedding most of the technology required to produce a 3D image “directly in the panel”, LG said, instead of outside the panel or within viewing glasses.
It’s unclear if LG’s super-bright 3D LCD will ever make it into shops. ®
