LG has taken the 200Hz TV battle right up to Sony with the launch of several new models with full HD TruMotion 200Hz technology. Earlier this year Sony were driving their Bravia TV marketing campaign based on their own MotionFlow 200Hz technology now several competitors are set to enter the 200Hz market.

In contrast, LG’s TruMotion 200Hz employs a different approach involving frame insertions plus scanning backlight technologies. By flashing on and off, the backlight produces actual black frames between true and inserted frames therefore reducing motion blur, increasing sharpness and improving contrast levels in dark scenes.
With LG’s full HD 1080p and Super IPS panel technology, TruMotion 200Hz creates crystal clear images with true-to-life movement, even during the fastest moving onscreen action through advanced scanning backlight technology.

“The LH50 is designed to offer incredible picture quality straight out of the box. It also allows real enthusiasts to fine tune the picture even further. Picture Wizard, preset AV modes and 24p Real Cinema work together to optimize the LH50’s picture quality for all types of programming including sports, movies, games and more” Kim added.
The LH50 is also compatible with the latest digital formats and offers an array of convenient inputs. This includes HD DivX and USB 2.0 compatibility, which make it easy to watch high resolution movies and other video downloads. Four HDMI v1.3 ports allow multiple HD or full HD sources to be connected while ensuring the highest level of clarity and compatibility.
The LH50 uses LG’s unique Invisible Speaker and Clear Voice II technologies to create optimal sound quality. Audio expert Mr. Mark Levinson helped tune LG’s Invisible Speakers, which use the entire front of the TV as a sounding board, to create deep and dramatic sound without the need for unsightly speaker grilles. Clear Voice II enhances the sound of the human voice, making it easier to hear over the background noise.
The new TV also has Smart Energy Saving Plus that incorporates the Backlight control function, Screen-off function, Mechanical power-off and Intelligent Sensor.
The backlight control function controls the brightness of the TV allowing adjustment for brightness better suited for the viewing environment. The screen off function lets you switch off the screen while keeping the sound or music alive. Extra energy saving can be made with the use of the Mechanical OFF switch which reduces power consumption to almost zero watts. Added to these functions is the Intelligent Sensor function that controls automatically the brightness and the colour of the picture in accordance with the brightness and the colour of the viewing area.
