LG unveiled the World’s first 480Hz LCD TV today.  Aside from boasting an eye numbing 480hz refresh rate, the Trumotion 480Hz LCD TV also rocks a super fast 4ms response time.  Unfortunately, there’s no mention of resolution, brightness, contrast ratio or pricing, but I promise to kick down some doors at CES ’09 to get a hands on.

TV Panel Featuring Impressive 4ms Motion Picture Response Time to be Demonstrated at CES 2009

SEOUL, Korea–(BUSINESS WIRE–LG Display (NYSE:LPL, KRX:034220), a leading innovator of TFT-LCD technology, announced today that it has developed the world’s first “Trumotion 480Hz” LCD TV panel, which has an impressive 480 refresh rate per second, accelerating the advent of ultra high-speed images, without sacrificing picture quality.

In addition, LG Display’s “Trumotion 480Hz” display boasts an lower motion picture response time (MPRT)of 4ms, eliminating motion blurring for fast moving images and enabling a realistic, crystal clear picture. The display also makes dark images even darker and bright images far brighter – providing unparalleled, vivid picture quality. Moreover, it can reduce energy consumption by adjusting the backlight brightness.

“The world’s first Trumotion 480Hz LCD TV panel is planned to hit the market in the second half of 2009. LG Display will provide its customers with unique, high-end products while delivering crisp picture quality for fast moving images,” noted Mr. Eddie Yeo, Executive Vice President and Head of LG Display TV Business Unit.
