    LG Electronics (LG) will present the future of TV technology at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas with the unveiling of the world's largest OLED TV with a display size of 55 inches. By incorporating the company's 4-Color Pixels and Color Refiner features with LG Display's advanced OLED (organic light-emitting diode) panels, LG OLED TV generates the most natural colors of any TV set at a much lower price point than could have been achieved using the standard manufacturing process.

    "Working closely with LG Display, we have a product which not only delivers on all the advantages of OLED over LCD but at a significantly lower cost than what could be achieved using existing OLED manufacturing technologies," said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "OLED is clearly the future of home TV entertainment and LG is very focused on making this exciting technology as easy as possible for consumers to embrace."

    What sets LG's TV picture apart from other OLED TVs is 4-Color Pixels and Color Refiner which work together to generate natural and accurate colors that are sharp and consistent. The 4-Color Pixels feature allows for more accurate color depiction by using a set of four colors (red, green blue and white) in comparison to the RGB setup used by other OLED TV manufacturers. Color Refiner ensures consistency in colors from a wider viewing angle via an LG algorithm which improves and refines hues and tones. This is in contrast to other OLED TVs which often exhibit drastic changes in hues from different viewing angles and abnormal color gamut.

    Boasting an infinite contrast ratio, LG's OLED TV exhibits vivid colors and the smallest details regardless of the overall luminance of the on-screen image. In turn, colors and details throughout an entire image are preserved with utmost clarity and sharpness, even when displaying scenes with dark lighting. Such color capabilities are technically impossible with LED and LCD display panels. And at 1,000 times faster than LED/LCD displays, LG's OLED TV shows crystal clear motion without any blurring or bleeding.

    And LG's OLED TV is as aesthetically pleasing as it is technologically sophisticated. LG's Slim and Narrow Bezel design gives the TV a sleek, minimal look and at only 4 mm thin and a mere 7.5 kg, LG's OLED TV practically blends into the wall.

    This may finally herald the introduction of desktop OLED monitors, banishing annoying issues like poor viewing angles, motion smear and lag that we get with LCD technology.

    I for one think that we took a step down from CRT with current monitors, I hope this is the way to address lag we currently have on LCDs.
    Any words on the pixel count? The other news reported Ultra High Definition.

    Maybe she's a giant :D

    That's what having little or no casing/bezel does to a TV, it may be stylish but the lack of framing makes it seem smaller for some reason

    Sounds like a good idea

    I don't honestly see why TV makers insist on removing the Bezel when most people don't care about it and a lot of people actually pay to have pictures put in photo frames

    This would look amazing in eyefinity with the seamless look. I've been wating on that for a while now. I couldn't stand that 2" black strip between the screens any longer. This'll look amazing on the wall.

    They should at least include a life size poster of the girl with it. "Thanks for buying or screen, hers a poster". Be alot better then some crummy tshirt lol.

    Anything with lil asians makes the product seem soo much better.

    that can be interpreted in two ways....the other interpretation is not fit for a site like TPU.

    All I'm seeing here is the future of bezel-less monitors! :rockout:
