LG LEX8: Thin and packed with Nano Lighting Technology

LG will showcase the LEX8 television at this year's IFA later this week the company has confirmed.

Previewing the latest television ahead of its official announcement on Thursday, the next generation of flat panel television will feature NANO Lighting Technology, which say LG will redefine the meaning of "clarity" in FULL LED TVs.

According to the Korean company "An extremely thin film printed with minuscule dots positioned in front of a full array of LEDs disperses light more evenly and effectively across the screen, creating pictures that are clearer, enticingly smoother and more refined."

Add that to an Anti-Reflection Panel and the LEX8 screen promises to minimize reflection from an external light source – including sunlight -- ensuring the picture always stays crystal clear.

The LEX8 is further enhanced, say LG, by the company's TruMotion 400Hz technology.

"In creating our first television using nano technology, LG is continuing to set new standards in TV technology and demonstrating once again that we're pushing the envelope of home entertainment," said Simon Kang, President and CEO of LG Home Entertainment Company. "Just as difficult as it is to watch standard TV after experiencing high definition, people will resist going back to regular LED LCD TVs after viewing the LEX8."

LG says all the above is possible by improving localized dimming in both 2D and 3D with its Micro Pixel Control technology.

"By manipulating individual LED blocks, Micro Pixel Control adds even greater range and life to colors, from the deepest, darkest blacks to the most natural colours."
