LG's New Cinema 3D Smart TVs Have 1mm Bezel

LG said on Sunday that it will introduce its Cinema Screen Design this week at CES 2012 in Las Vegas. This design will be featured in a new lineup of Cinema 3D Smart TVs for 2012 that reduces the bezel to just 1-mm thick (or thin, depending on your perspective).

"The Cinema Screen Design translates the latest advances in LG’s display technology into an aesthetically superior form," the company said. "Bezels that surround the new Cinema 3D Smart TVs have been slimmed down to negligible levels, removing physical obstructions to allow greater immersion of 3D effects, reminiscent of movie screens at cinemas."

The company will also reveal new Cinema 3D glasses set to hit the market this year that are reportedly 20-percent lighter than the previous model. Also exposed will be LG's Dual Play glasses and technology that allows gamers to play simultaneously in a split-screen environment on one TV but still view full screens via the glasses.

"Players see two entirely different full images, as opposed to the traditional split screen, where each player has to focus on half the screen," the company said. "Meanwhile, 3D Sound Zooming generates audio output that is synchronized with the location and movement of the various on-screen objects, so immersive sound can complement immersive visuals."

Cinema Smart TVs launching in 2012 will also come packed with a library of over 1,200 apps, a variety of premium content services (including 3D World which provides a growing number of 3D content), and a built-in 2D to 3D conversion engine.
