LG unveils 100-inch Laser Display
Manama, September 25, 2013
LG Electronics and AJM Kooheji Group have launched a 100-inch (254 cm) Laser Display in Bahrain, hoping to cash in on the huge demand for extra-large displays in the kingdom.
It is billed as the world's largest display offering full HD 1080p screen resolution and a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. The Display is available for BD3,990 ($10,528).
"The Laser Display provides unparalleled cinema experience to customers in their homes, astonishing natural colour tones with high performance and narrow bezel design that will add elegance to homes," LG Electronics Gulf general manager for IT Chung Young Kim said.
"We are pleased to bring to the market another innovation that will broaden our product offering and give our customers an extra-large screen viewing experience - an experience we know there is a huge demand for," he stated.
The anti-reflective screen offers cinematic picture quality, even in the brightest of conditions, he said.
"While conventional projection systems require a considerable distance to display images on a large screen, the lens of LG's UST unit can be positioned a mere 56 cm away from the 100-inch display," he said.
"This clever, space-efficient configuration means the user doesn't have to sacrifice half the room in order to enjoy the Laser Display," explained Kim.
The Display has two 10W speakers built into the UST unit, which support virtual surround sound.
LG's UST projection unit employs a technologically advanced laser-based illumination system.
It features a specialised bulb that can operate for 25,000 hours without needing replacement, which is five times longer than an environmentally-unsound mercury lamp.-TradeArabia News Service
