LG presents at the IFA 2009 its BORDERLESS TVs that appear to be a single, uninterrupted sheet of glass and is the first TVs to completely eliminate the seam between the screen and the surrounding bezel.
Two BORDERLESS TVs are introduced, the SL8000 and SL9000 both with a modern style design, which is basically the SL80 and SL90 for the US market. The SL8000 is based on Full HD 1080p SuperIPS panel, which can be finely tuned using LG’s Expert Mode and features TruMotion 200Hz, 150,000:1 contrast ratio while the SL9000 boasts LED-backlight, 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio, Bluetooth and support for DivX playback. LG’s exclusive Intelligent Sensor reduces energy consumption, helping make both TVs friendlier to the environment.
LG was able to create these super-slim smooth TVs by using a new Injection Compression Molding technique, which creates a sleek, uninterrupted glass-like surface. Special laminate films reduce glare and improve picture quality. Upgrades to the invisible speaker system enabled LG to make powerful sound an integral part of its BORDERLESS TVs while retaining their slim profiles and seamless finishes.
