If you're in the market for a new TV and are browsing through LCD, plasma, and LED TV sets, you will probably be surprised to learn that there is a new TV technology in town brought to you by LG Electronics: Laser Display.
A hundred inches of Laser Display, that is!
Not content with the current market technology offerings, LG created the world's first laser technology and packaged it in a new revolutionary projection system dubbed "Ultra Short Throw" (UST for short) allowing the projector to be set up 56cm (22") away from the (also very thin) 100" screen.
What does this new laser technology do? Aside from sounding fancy and allowing more leg room in your home, ot boasts 1080p HD and a whopping 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ration. In layman's terms, LG is going to redefine how black colours appear on your TV. And instead of a bulb, you have smaller lamps emitting precision light and last much longer than your conventional lamp; in fact, LG claims it'll run for 25,000 hours. That's a lot of TV time.
There is plenty of technology engineered into the screen itself, of particular interest is the anti-glare filters that won't let the sun or ambient light rob you from your experience. The only downside is that the viewing angles from the side are not that great, but the screen is big enough and you and your friends will be sitting comfortably a few metres away huddled in the centre. Wireless technologies and built-in WiFi saves you the hassle from fumbling with cables.
Though all this technoogy is ground breaking and fancy, the price is a real value-for-money deal. With an estimated MSRP of AED 29,999 it sets itself beyond the rest of the competition for what it delivers in technology and screen size for its price.
