LG to roll out Trumotion 480Hz LCD TV panel at CES
CES 2009 is going to be a bang, never mind that there is the shadow of a looming global recession right behind our backs. The show must still go on, and even if it is going to be on a less grand scale come this January, we will be there to bring you the latest and best coverage in terms of new gizmos and gadgets. Good thing certain companies have prepared everyone else in advance by offering a glimpse into what they have to offer on the vast CES showfloors, and LG Display just announced the completion of its first Trumotion 480Hz LCD TV panel that touts to boast an impressive 480 refresh rate per second that is good enough to accelerate the advent of ultra high-speed images without sacrificing on picture quality in the process.
According to LG Display, this new LCD TV panel will feature ‘scanning backlight’ technology that allows a backlight to be repeatedly turned on and off to reduce motion blur. When used in tandem with their own 240 Hz technology, the display is able to hit a refresh rate of 480 images per second. Not only that, LG Display’s “Trumotion 480Hz” display also comes with an even lower motion picture response time (MPRT) of 4ms, hence doing away with motion blurring for fast moving images while allowing for realistic, crystal clear pictures. Dark images will be even darker while bright images will be far brighter than ever before, offering unparalleled, vivid picture quality right in the middle of your living room. Not only that, you won’t burden your monthly power bill since energy consumption is reduced by adjusting the backlight brightness.
The first Trumotion 480Hz LCD TV panel in the world will be released for retail sales sometime in the second half of next year, but you will be able to see it first at CES 2009 – and we plan to bring you all the relevant updates. Image courtesy of Gizmodo.
