LG South Africa last week unveiled its product range for 2010, comprising of advanced widescreen computer monitors, mobile projectors and optical drives.

LG Electronics introduced the LG Flatron W2486L, a widescreen LED-backlit monitor which offers optimal performance, lighter weight and slimmer design. The monitor utilizes LG’s f-engine technology for a life-like accurate image with a dynamic contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1 and LG’s Smart Package which includes AutoBright, Live Sensor, Cinema Mode, Time Control and comes with a DVI –D port and two HDMI ports.

“Computers have become a mainstay in most households – for personal and professional use – and the explosion of video content requires the display technology to be as multi-dimensional as their users,” said Michelle Potgieter, Marketing Director of LG Electronics South Africa.

According to Potgieter, the monitor was designed for today’s demanding graphics and video intensive applications. Also, it incorporates environmentally-friendly features and consumes 42% less power than similar monitors.

LG has also presented its latest eco-friendly monitor, the LG E2350V, which was showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year. The 23-inch LED computer monitor, with a 5 000 000:1 contrast ratio, has earned UL Environment’s new Sustainable Product Certification (SPC) for high tech equipment and a third-party certification for meeting IEEE 1680 environmental performance for consumer electronics, which includes ENERGY STAR® requirements for energy efficiency.

The HX300 LED mobile projector features Digital Light Processing technology, XGA resolution and the brightness of 300 ANSI lumens. The Twin XD engine is responsible for colour correction, the internal Advanced Colour Engine enhances colours and thanks to HDMI 1.3 upscaling, on-screen colour banding is eliminated, providing smooth tonal transitions and subtle gradations between colours. It can be turned on/off in only 5 seconds and can last upto 30,000 hours.

The system can play DivX files, display JPEG images and even play MP3 music files through external hard drives, USB memory sticks or memory cards connected through the USB port. The HX300 also includes FM wireless audio, allowing instant playback of broadcast radio though the projector’s speakers.

Finally, LG showcased the LG CF181D Home Cinema projector for a real-life cinema experience. The CF181D is a SXRD system projector using Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS), taking advantage of both DLP (in terms of its high contrast ratio) and LCD technology.
