LAS VEGAS, Jan. 9, 2012 — LG Electronics (LG) today introduced its 2012 line-up of Home Theater Systems and Network Blu-ray Disc Players at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (Booth #8204), bringing the home entertainment experience to new heights with improved 3D sound and picture quality.
Leading the line-up unveiled this week is LG’s BH9420PW, a “3D Sound” home theater system, incorporating LG’s 3D sound technology with a state-of-the-art Blu-ray system. The BH9420PW enhances the 3D experience by adding a dimension of height to the audio field and uses 3D Sound Zooming to synchronize the audio with 3D picture depth when playing back 3D video from Blu-ray discs and broadcast sources.
“Following a tremendously successful year for our CINEMA 3D TV line, LG is excited to provide enhanced 3D experiences through our full line of 2012 audio-video products,” said Jay Vandenbree, senior vice president, LG Electronics USA. “As a pioneer in making 3D fun, easy and engaging, LG is helping consumers make their home entertainment experiences truly immersive with our new 3D sound systems and Network Blu-ray players.”
Complete Home Theater in 3D
The BH9420PW incorporates both 3D Sound and 3D Sound Zooming capability, offering a “live in your living room” experience for consumers. This 3D surround sound home theater provides consumers with high-quality 360-degree 3D sound through a unique 9.1 speaker system that creates an expanded sound field around the listener through the additional vertical-firing speaker units. This flagship Home Theater System also includes a 3D Blu-ray disc player with LG’s innovative Smart TV* application suite for access to a variety of content and services, including movies, music and over 1,200 applications such as Netflix, Hulu Plus, VUDU, CinemaNow, Amazon VOD, YouTube, Pandora, MOG and more. All online content can be accessed via a home network using the player’s built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.
Consumers can also stream audio files from their smart phones or MP3 players via Bluetooth for playback on the home theater.
