LG's wireless HDTVs stream 1080p signals

At the currently ongoing CEDIA show, LG is showing off its first wireless LCD HDTVs, including the 55-inch 55LHX and the LH85 series. The wireless connectivity lets users stream 1080p video signals to the TV sets up to 30 feet away without lag; a separate media box takes the majority of wired input. Power for the sets, however, still needs to come from a cable connection.

The LHX HDTV is less than one inch thick at its slimmest, while being THX certified. The 55LHX is LED-backlit, which helps it achieve a 5,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and has a 240Hz panel speed. In comparison, the new conventionally-lit LH85 HDTVs have an 80,000:1 contrast ratio. Both also have a USB port for loading MP3 music or JPEG photos.

All three new HDTVs from LG have ISFccc color calibration for more professional adjustment. An ambient light sensor built into all three adjusts the brightness and contrast levels accordingly.

The 55LHX will launch soon, priced at $4,799, while the 55- and 47-inch LH85 will begin shipping later this fall, priced at $3,199 and $2,399, respectively.
