LG - 4K compliant smart TV "LA9700 series" will be out


LG Electronics Japan is going to start selling the 4K compliant full HD smart TV "LA9700 series" (65v and 55v) in early November. It is LG's first 4K TV released in Japan.

The "LA9700 series" is a newly developed 4K (3,840×2,160 dot) IPS LCD panel, that provides a 178-degree field of view, and new "Nano Full LED" backlight technology, that can produce a brighter picture by minimizing contrast change and uneven brightness.

The newly-developed "Tru-ULTRA HD Engine" up-converts images to 4K quality through a "data analysis" process, through which it receives the original image and outputs an image of higher quality.

Regarding the sound, to support 4K quality, 2 full-range speakers, 2 soft dome tweeters, 2 mid-range speaker and a backside woofer are built-in.

The frame is ultra-thin (only 1cm wide) so that the screen is emphasized and you can easily focus on the screen image.
