CES 2009: Pushing the boundaries of TV technology
Every CES has its share of stunning TVs. And this year LG is turning heads with its new LHX Slim Wireless LED Backlight HDTV.
The LHX is a 55-inch, 0.97-inch thick, 1080p TV – a showcase for a range of LG's newest technologies, such as: TrueMotion 240Hz, LED backlighting, the Mark Levinson-tuned invisible speaker system, Clear Voice II dialogue enhancement and Picture Wizard, an idiot-proof calibration tool.
Most notably, the LHX features Wireless HDMI technology. This enables uncompressed 1080p video to be beamed from a separate media box to the HDTV. No wires required.
It's not the first example of Wireless HDMI in an HDTV. Last year, Sony crammed it into the Bravia KDL-40ZX1. Expect more TV manufacturers to adopt the technology this year.
The LHX was the undeniable highlight of the LG press conference on Wednesday. The photos just don't do it justice. Have a look at the full specification below:
