LG Electronics, a major player in the global flat panel display market, announced the worldwide launch of the single layer PQ70 HD 1080p Plasma TV with 600Hz Sub-field Driving technology. Loyal to the company’s motto “Advanced Technology, Beautifully Hidden,” the PQ70 delivers exceptional picture quality in a sleek and sophisticated frameless package.

“The single layer concept has created a whole new paradigm for plasma television design,” said Mr H. S. Paik, President of LG Electronics Gulf FZE. “Through extensive customer research, we’ve learned that people want high-performance televisions that are in perfect harmony with their homes. The PQ70 offers the latest high-end features within a spectacular streamlined look that blends perfectly with a room’s decor.”

The frameless, single layer design of the PQ70 is a minimalist’s dream come true. Like a clear piece of crystal hanging on the wall, its 2.5mm-thick single pane of glass sits plainly across the entire length of the screen, eliminating the need for a traditional bezel. This allows the PQ70 to become a part of its environment, giving the illusion of one single surface, like a picture embedded in the wall. Its clean, neat lines will be the perfect complement to any interior. At the bottom of the PQ70 overlapping waves of transparent material create the impression that the TV is floating on clouds.

LG’s HD 1080p Ultra Bright Panel has improved brightness and incredibly deep black levels that, along with Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 2,000,000:1, ensure images always look vibrant and realistic. The panel’s motion technology also makes possible LG’s 600Hz Sub-field Driving technology, which reacts with outstanding precision to changes on the screen, delivering fast action and zero motion blur. This creates an extremely fast motion picture response time of 0.001ms, meaning sports and action movies can be enjoyed as they are meant to be.

The PQ70 includes LG’s Dual XD Engine and image processing system that optimizes picture quality for any type of content. Special AV modes further enhance viewing, providing choices among movie, video game and sports modes with the press of a button.

The PQ70 easily pairs with a wide range of Bluetooth devices, expanding the TV’s capabilities and content choices. Viewers can look at photos or listen to music stored on compatible mobile phones and connect Bluetooth headphones without ungainly wires getting in the way. Bluetooth may be just as evolutionary in the development of TVs as was the remote control. It provides a new level of mobility and connectivity that no other interface can.

 

The LG PQ70 Plasma TV is now available with all retail outlets across GCC.

    Strange fact with the LG Plasma TV? I own an LG 42PQ30 42-Inch 720p Plasma HDTV in my living room. And I disclosed that pushing continuesly the Menu buytton has a trick to it. Beforehand, it exposes the main menu slowly, then it closes screen and exposes a password screen. Now interesting, the password set on the TV isn’t the password used here. Does anyone know what this is about?

    Which BT headsets (co & model no) are compatible with PQ70?

      As long as the headphone is BT 2.1, it should technically work
