LG LED LCDs Are Official, LHX is Thinnest LCD With LED Backlight, 240Hz, Wireless HDMIS

LG opened up today's CES press bonanza by dropping the new LHX series (a new name for the LH95), a 0.97-inch 240Hz LCD with signals streaming from a wireless "media box."

The size is 55 inches, and still no no word yet on price.

Also new is the LH90 series, which brings all of the LHX's 240Hz LED goodness, but without the ultra-slim chassis and wireless external box. They come in 55, 47 and 42-inchers.

LHX Slim Wireless LED Backlight HDTV (Class Size: 55-inch*) A CES 2009 Innovations honoree, LG’s LHX offers superior picture quality with an elegant ultra-slim design – less than one-inch thick at its thinnest point. Unlike other slim LED HDTVs that use “edge” lighting, LG’s LHX uses a full array of LED backlights which employ local dimming techniques for precise picture control, resulting in deeper blacks, wide color gamut and smooth motion, achieving 240Hz performance for more natural picture clarity. Key features include:

• Full HD 1080p via Uncompressed Wireless Transmission from media box
• TruMotion 240 Hz
• LED backlighting with Local Dimming
• 2,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
• 24p Real Cinema (5:5 Pulldown)
• Intelligent Sensor
• ISFccc Ready
• Four (4) HDMI V. 1.3 with Deep Color
• USB 2.0 for access to digital music and photos (MP3, JPEG)
• LG SimpLink™ (HDMI-CEC)
• Smart Energy Saving Plus
• LG Core Technologies
