LG Nano Cell 4K TVs promise wider viewing angles

LG Nano Cell 4K TVs promise wider viewing angles

LG will demonstrate the diversity of its TV product line when it introduces its Nano Cell Super UHD TVs at CES 2017. Unlike quantum dot technology, which uses differently-sized particles, Nano Cell employs uniform particles of around 1 nanometer in diameter in an effort to create more subtle, accurate colours. The new TVs also support high dynamic range (HDR) technology, including "Dolby Vision", - the most popular and advanced HDR technology chosen by major Hollywood video producers and providers like Netflix Inc. However, the LG approach is said to absorb surplus light wavelengths, enhancing the purity of the colors displayed on the screen.

Aside from that, the new TVs all come with Active HDR, which uses a number of technologies to make sure the TV always shows the best picture, no matter the type of HDR data in the content. Whether attached on top of a TV stand, included as part of an entertainment center, or mounted on the wall, the beautifully designed LG SUPER UHD TV will enhance the visual appeal of any home.

To build on this technology, LG has partnered with Technicolor, which will debut a new Expert color mode in 2017. An HDR Effect heightens the quality of standard images.

On the software side, the new models get LG webOS 3.5, with easier control and faster access when using the improved Magic Remote and the new Magic Link feature. The webOS software includes a Magic Link button on the remote which functions to give quicker access and details about the film. The TV is also capable to zoom in easily into a scene.

Should you buy a 4K TV right now?

Connecting the TV to a mobile phone or PC with a USB cable will now enable seeing 360-degree Virtual Reality (VR) content, and LG will help showcase at CES the Channel Plus free service powered by XUMO to integrate more than 70 free streaming digital channels including sports and news from national broadcast networks such as Fox Sports, Newsy, Sports Illustrated, Time, Bloomberg, People, Funny or Die, Fail Army and more into your existing over-the-air TV channel options.

The flagship 55-inch SJ9500, which is 6.9mm at its thinnest point, offers the best quality picture LG has ever mustered from an LCD set, the company says. But it's certainly an interesting move by both LG and Technicolor.
