LG claims LX9500 as world's first full LED 3D TV

LG LX9500 boasts 10m contrast, slim shape

Recent leaks were proven accurate today as LG has launched what it says is the first fully LED-backlit 3D TV, the LX9500. It uses panels of LEDs directly behind the LCD to produce an extremely high 10,000,000:1 contrast ratio as well as improve the 3D effect through brightness. The set is also the first to support the new Multi Picture Format for 3D imaging: the LX9500 can show photos from the Fujifilm Real 3D W1 or potentially from video without having to transcode content.

The sets will come in 47- and 55-inch versions that each are very thin (0.87in) and have narrow bezels (0.63in) that reduce the footprint of the set. Either TV refreshes quickly with or without 3D, at 480Hz, and support extras like Skype video calls (with the optional camera) as well as usual Internet features. LG's active shutter glasses charge over USB and provide about 40 hours of viewing before they need more power.

Korea gets the LX9500 series first, but North America and other regions will get the sets by early May. Pricing should be made public closer to the actual release date.
