LG’s LW5600 CINEMA 3D HDTVs are featured throughout the gallery and prominently displayed as an “editors’ top TV pick” along with the LG BD670 3D-capable Network Blu-ray Player in the “Connected Home” section of the gallery. Visitors can experience next-generation LG CINEMA 3D in a side-by-side comparison against a competing sets that use active-shutter 3D glasses. A gaming section of the gallery allows guests to enjoy the latest in engaging 3D videogame action on LG CINEMA 3D TVs.

“A CINEMA 3D TV makes a great gift this holiday season because of its family-friendly viewing experience, including affordable and comfortable 3D glasses and wide viewing angles,” said Jay Vandenbree, senior vice president, home entertainment, LG Electronics USA. “CNET GOTHAM gives visitors a chance to experience the most engaging 3D on the market today, among the industry’s hottest gift ideas, handpicked by CNET editors, on display here.”

CNET’s editors said the LG CINEMA 3D Smart TV features one of CNET’s “favorite suites of streaming services,” with a 3D picture that has “minimal crosstalk, is brighter than active and includes four pairs of lightweight, non-powered glasses.”

With a suite of streaming media services that includes Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, MOG, Napster and vTuner, an LG Blu-ray player with Smart TV built in offers more than just disc playback. “The LG BD670′s built-in Wi-Fi and excellent streaming-media suite make it one of the best Blu-ray player values,” CNET editors said.

Next-Generation 3D TV Technology

LG CINEMA 3D TVs enable consumers to recreate the 3D movie theater viewing experience in their homes with lightweight eyewear, crisp, bright images and wide-angle viewing. In third- party 3D TV tests commissioned by LG, four out five people chose LG CINEMA 3D over Sony and Samsung TVs using active-flicker 3D glasses*. In addition, more than three quarters of the respondents preferred LG CINEMA 3D for the immersive 3D experience, 3D effect, overall 3D picture quality and 3D glasses*.

LG CINEMA 3D TVs use a similar 3D technology employed in theaters. Their Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) display technology from LG Display optimizes the separation of images for the left and right eye, which are then filtered through the polarized glasses. This gives viewers a great 3D effect without the distracting flicker of active-shutter glasses and also virtually eliminates cross-talk, providing more comfortable 3D viewing experience.

Enhanced LG Smart TV

To complete the CINEMA 3D package, the LW5600 on display at the CNET Gotham Holiday Gallery incorporates the expanded LG Smart TV online content package, which offers easy access to thousands of movies, customized apps, videos, web browsing as well as simple multimedia file sharing within a consumer’s home network**. New additions to LG Smart TV include premium content like Facebook and Twitter and numerous options in the LG App store, such as the new 3D Zone. All this content is organized in a simple to use interface controlled by LG’s unique gesture-based Magic Motion Remote Control and easily accessed using the TV’s built-in Wi-Fi.
