LG Keeps Plasma TV Alive With Four New Models Announced

By |


medium01.jpgThough many thought that Panasonic's discontinuation of the format spelled the end for plasma TV technology, LG has kept it alive by announcing four new models. In addition, they will continue to produce an older model from last year. Three of the TVs are 1080p while, interestingly, they are also offering a new 720p model, presumably for those who are just switching to HDTVs. No doubt this news will please many home theater fans, who have long touted the film-like quality and rich blacks that plasmas can produce, when compared to LCD/LED.

LG pledged to continue supporting plasma TV technology with the launch of its flagship PN6900, the PB6600, the PB5600 and the PB560B displays.

The range-topping PN6900 supports the 1080p resolution and is the firm's only 3D-ready plasma for 2014. None of LG's latest plasma screens comes with the smart platform installed.

All 4K-ready LG smart TVs will offer video-streaming service Netflix in the high-end standard.
