LG-42LH40 Have you ever experience a time when watching a favorite sporting event or an action movie and you said to yourself that something is missing? Blurry images? Choppy pictures? LG’s TruMotion 120Hz offered on the 42LH40 1080p LCD HDTV removes common sources of judder, resulting in a smoother, more lifelike moving image whose effect is noticed especially when watching fast-action sports or movies. Best of all, you get to enjoy this advanced performance on a full HD 1080p LCD panel with widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, wide 178° x 178° viewing angle, and super-fast 2.7ms panel-response time.

In addition, 10-bit color reproduction and a 70,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio deliver enhanced color and detail. And while a 500cd/m² panel brightness is ideal even in rooms with high levels of ambient light, the 42LH40′s 60,000-hour panel life lets you enjoy high-performance LCD for decades to come.

While it is true that LCD flat panels tend to perform better than their plasma cousins in viewing areas with ambient light, not all LCDs are created equal. The 42LH40′s Intelligent Sensor employs a sophisticated algorithm that uses 4,096 sensing steps to evaluate the panel’s surroundings, ultimately optimizing the panel’s brightness, contrast, color, sharpness, and white balance to the needs of your home viewing area.

Video processing isn’t video processing without an engine.The LG XD engine uses advanced video processing to optimize black levels and panel brightness, to enhance color, and to reduce image noise and artifacts. Additionally, XD Engine technology provides de-interlacing of analog signals, making these compatible with the performance level of modern flat panel technologies. From style on the outside to advanced technologies on the inside, your home HD experience begins with the LG 42LH40.

The advanced HD video performance offered by the 42LH40′s panel is only half of the story when it comes to the complete home-theater experience. Audio is the other. LG’s 2009 line of HDTVs features a unique invisible speaker system that uses minute vibrations from speakers embedded into strategic areas behind the front cabinet to convert the entire front bezel into the speaker system. You get a clean, polished look coupled with an audio soundstage enhance by a wider sound field. Not only that, the 42LH40′s Clear Voice II technology automatically enhances and amplifies the sound of the human voice’s frequency range during scenes when background noise swells, assuring that you catch every last syllable of crucial dialogue.

Then of course, there’s the 120Hz processing. The 42LH40 with 24p Real Cinema video processing allows the LCD to fully display 24fps video thanks to specific video processing that reproduces film-based images as video content.

As for connectivity, the LG 42LH40 is packed. In this multiple-component, integrated-system world, the LG 42LH40 serves up an extra helping of connectivity with a PC input. Surf the net, download online movies, play games or get a little work done, all on 42 inches of stunning HD LCD. Also, the set comes with four HDMI connections.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the only interface in consumer electronics that can carry both uncompressed high-definition (HD) video and uncompressed multi-channel audio in all HD formats including 720p, 1080i and even 1080p. Your incoming media content comes in a variety of sizes, resolutions and formats, and with that in mind, HDMI systems automatically configure to display that content in the most effective format. Since HDMI carries all channels on video and audio, there is only one cable to plug into any HDMI-enabled source and display device.

No more complicated cable set-up when installing your home theater system, and no more ugly cable mess behind your components. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on this single cable. Also, HDMI is fully backward-compatible with DVI.
