LG Electronics announced that its CINEMA 3D TV (47LW570S-ZD) has been certified FULL HD in 3D-Mode by VDE, one of the largest technical and scientific international associations in Europe.
"This latest certification proves beyond all doubt that LG's CINEMA 3D TVs, which already provide the most comfortable 3D viewing experience, deliver 3D in FULL HD," said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "We're pleased to say we can now put this debate to rest."
The dispute over LG's TV had centered on whether the company's CINEMA 3D TVs truly qualified as FULL HD, defined as a horizontal image containing 1,080 lines of definition. LG's Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology, used on the CINEMA 3D TVs, creates the perception of 3D depth by delivering two 540 line images, one for each eye, that are then combined via the glasses to create a unified 1080p image. The ruling from the VDE delivers a clear affirmation of the validity of LG's FPR technology.
The China Electronic Chamber of Commerce has also ruled that both the vertical and horizontal resolution of LG CINEMA 3D TVs meet the 1080p TV standard, a position that allows LG to use the FULL HD logo in China. TUV and Intertek, two top European quality assurance and safety certification agencies, awarded LG's CINEMA 3D TVs "Flicker-Free" certification.
