LG has designed the thinnest HDTV, measuring 2.6mm (or 0.1 inch) thick. The development of extremely slim LCD panel was possible by applying company’s accumulated “slimming” technologies including use of an ultra-slim, edge-lit LED backlight system and proprietary optical film technology. LG will show off their LED-lit backlight HDTV at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2010 in Las Vegas.
The 42″ panel weighs less than 4 kilograms, runs at 120Hz refresh rate, and displays full 1080p (1920×1080) resolution. Two HDTV’s are as thin as two American dimes and use LED-lit backlight and proprietary optical film technology for display.
