Some of LG Display's hottest CES demonstrations include:

The World's First 480Hz LCD Panel for TVs

Sunlight Illuminated LCD for Notebooks

LG Display's 14.1-inch LCD panel for notebook PCs is illuminated by sunlight instead of the backlight unit when used outdoors-reducing power consumption by an impressive 75%.

LCD TV that Also Serves as a Digital Photo Frame

Dubbed the 'Digital Photo TV', LG Display's 47-inch LCD TV panel makes it possible for a TV to serve as a digital photo frame when the TV is not in use.

Additional LG Display Product Demonstration Highlights Include:

Green Technology Zone

LG Display will show its eco-friendly products that consume less power and require dramatically fewer components, while delivering high-resolution images and crisp, picture quality. Demonstration highlights include:

  • World's Lowest Power 32-inch LCD TV Panel, in which energy use is slashed by 56% compared to conventional LCD panels as a result of LG Display's White Plus technology. This new technology enhances display brightness by adding a white pixel to the RGB pixel, as well as its Optimal Power Control (OPC) technology

  • 15-inch backlight-less reflective LCD for notebook PC that enables dual-sided capabilities
