    LG First to Offer Full LED 3D TV

    LG has unveiled the first LED TV with 3D. The LX9500 is illuminated by panels of LEDs directly behind the screen for local dimming, with the 55-inch model alone boasting 1,200 of the semiconductor light sources. The LEDs help the TV achieve a 10,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio while sporting an ultra-thin 22.3mm (less than 1 inch) deep body with a stylish 16mm super-narrow bezel.

    Other features of the full HD 1080p set include TruMotion 400Hz (480Hz), NetCast support, Wireless AV Link and HDMI 1.4. Video calling using Skype is possible with an optional video camera, and the unit is DLNA ready with an optional DLNA dongle. The LX9500 uses active shutter glasses that can be recharged via USB for up to 40 hours of uninterrupted viewing.

    The LX9500 can also play HD DivX, MP3, JPEG play and MPO files through its USB port. The low profile bezel hides the unit’s 10W + 10W + 5W “Invisible Speakers” and the set includes LG’s Clear Voice II technology to help clean up dialogue.

    Coming in 47- and 55-inch versions, the LX9500 is part of LG’s INFINIA 3D line and will first be available in Korea, followed by North America, Europe and other key markets by early May. (
