LG CINEMA 3D TV RECEIVES FULL HD CERTIFICATION
Benefits of Polarized Glasses Over Shutter Glasses
Dubai, Jul. 13, 2011 - LG Electronics (LG) announced that its CINEMA 3D TV
(47LW570S-ZD) has been certified FULL HD in 3D-Mode by VDE, one of the largest
technical and scientific international associations in Europe.
“This latest certification proves beyond all doubt that LG’s CINEMA 3D TVs, which
already provide the most comfortable 3D viewing experience, deliver 3D in FULL HD,”
Mr. H.S. Paik, President of LG Electronics Gulf FZE said. “We’re pleased to say we can
now put this debate to rest.”
The dispute over LG’s TV had centered on whether the company’s CINEMA 3D TVs truly
qualified as FULL HD, defined as a horizontal image containing 1,080 lines of definition.
LG’s Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology, used on the CINEMA 3D TVs, creates
the perception of 3D depth by delivering two 540 line images, one for each eye, that are
then combined via the glasses to create a unified 1080p image. The ruling from the VDE
delivers the clearest affirmation to date of the validity of LG’s FPR technology.
CINEMA 3D TV has already received a string of endorsements from other institutions
and agencies. The China Electronic Chamber of Commerce ruled that both the vertical
and horizontal resolution of LG CINEMA 3D TVs meet the 1080p TV standard, a
position that allows LG to use the FULL HD logo in China. TÜV and Intertek, two top
European quality assurance and safety certification agencies, awarded LG’s CINEMA 3D
TVs “Flicker-Free” certification, providing official backing for LG’s sharp 3D images.
Furthermore, a top US consumer magazine recently named an LG CINEMA 3D TV the
best 3D TV in the US market. The review noted clear advantages for the TV’s viewing
angle, 3D glasses and bright images.
