The new ultra slim and light panels will be on display at the upcoming electronics show.
LG has announced its latest line of LCD TVs. The Art Slim collection features an impressive reduction in thickness and weight from traditional LCD televisions.
"Design will be the next key factor in the display market as attention shifts from a focus on picture quality to the attractiveness of display designs," said Yong-Kee Hwang, Executive Vice President and Head of the TV Business Unit at LG Display. "With differentiated designs and technologies, LG Display will make continuous efforts to give added value to customers and lead the global display market."
At CES, the company will demo 55-inch and 65-inch models under the Art Slim series. The 55-inch set features a thickness of just 7.5mm and weighs about 23 pounds. Meanwhile, the 65-inch display features a thickness of just 8.2mm and weighs about 36 pounds. This represents a reduction in thickness of around 75 percent and a reduction in weight of around 25 percent compared to traditional LCDs. To achieve the new slim and light design, LG has converted the back cover of the LCD module into the rear cover of the complete TV set. Likewise, the manufacturer has also developed a new method for attaching the rear cover to the panel by minimizing the bezel width.
"LG Display's differentiated technology is always based on customer value," said Yong-Kee Hwang, Executive Vice President and Head of the TV Business Unit at LG Display. "The idea of the 'Art Slim' technology incorporates how display requirements are seen from the customer's perspective."
LG's Art Slim TVs will be on display at the company's booth during CES in Las Vegas from January 6-9. Pricing and availability have not been detailed yet, but LG plans to offer models ranging from 49-inches to 65-inches.
