Nanotech helping 3D TVs slim down for a bigger, better pictures

LG Electronics will show off the world's slimmest full LED 3D TV at the IFA consumer electronics trade show in Berlin from September 3 to 8.

At just 0.88cm thin (and a 1.25cm bezel) the LG LEX8 is able to capture what the company says is the "sharpest 3D images on the market."

The amazingly thin design and high quality picture is enabled through the inclusion of LG's NANO Lighting Technology: "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," revealed LG in an August 29 press release.

"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."

The LEX8 will go on display alongside LG's LEX9 (the biggest consumer LED LCD 3D screen yet at 72 inches), a 180 inch Plasma 3D TV prototype, and an array of 3D home cinema consumer electronics products from the company.

LG's push to be at the cutting edge of consumer 3D products is echoed by a chorus of other companies, each hoping draw attention to their new 3D products at this year's IFA, the world's largest consumer electronics and home appliances trade show.

During the event Panasonic will show off their first ever consumer 3D camcorder and their new range of 3D VIERA series TVs; Viewsonic will be on hand to demonstrate their portable 3D camera, pocket-sized 3D camcorder, glasses-free 3D display and portable 3D TV devices; Samsung will display their 3D capable video projector and Full HD 3D LED TVs; and Rockchip will unveil a prototype glasses-free 3D tablet called the Supernova X1 3D.
