LG Hecto Laser TV system
LG has just announced the unveiling of their 100-inch class (100-inch diagonal) Laser TV that will deliver not only Smart TV, but Digital TV capabilities as well. Touted to be an impressive home cinema system, the 100-inch class LG “HECTO” Laser TV will be made up of a special screen as well as an external Ultra Short Throw (UST) projection unit. This particularly unique system will be demonstrated for the first time at CES 2013 that is happening in just a fortnight’s time at Las Vegas, Nevada, where it will deliver Full HD 1080p resolution as well as an incredible contrast, all thanks to LG’s advanced laser-based illumination system.
Havis Kwon , President and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company, said, “LG’s 100-inch class Laser TV takes projection technology and makes it perfectly suitable for both the boardroom and the living room. In the coming year, LG will continue to introduce innovative TV products to provide an outstanding productivity and entertainment experience for our customers.”
Apart from its picture quality and large screen, LG’s 100-inch class Laser TV is said to deliver an uncanny theater-like experience at home, although you need not go through the hassle and headache of a difficult installation that previous projector-based systems require. Neither do you need to make space for a considerable distance from the screen to end up with a large image like a standard projector system, as LG’s Laser TV lets you place the lens a mere 22 inches (approximately 56 centimeters) from the screen, now how about that? You also have the option to place it near floor or fasten it to the ceiling for added flexibility.
Other hardware specifications of the LG Laser TV include 1080p Full HD resolution and 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, a digital tuner, two 10W built-in speakers that are embedded in the projection unit, three HDMI inputs, an optical audio output, and a RS-232 interface. Expect it to run up to 25,000 hours without the need for any replacement, making it last approximately five times longer than mercury-based lamps. Any takers?
