Consumer Electronics Show 2004

LG 71" and 76" Plasma Screens

LG was doing its best to make a huge splash at this show. Everywhere you turned it seemed there was an LG banner, billboard, or ad. Even the sides of several buildings were draped in five-story LG ads.

One of the things LG was promoting was its pair of gigantic new plasma screens measuring 71 inches and 76 inches, respectively. Right now, these are the two largest plasma screens available in the consumer market. The features of the 71" screen are impressive:

  • True HD resolution at 1,920x1,080 pixels (2,073,600 total pixels)
  • Contrast ratio of 1,500:1
  • 168.4 cm x 100 cm x 8.3 cm (66.3 inches x 39.37 inches x 3.26 inches) dimensions

This was the best photo I could get of the 71" screen given the number of the people in the booth while I was there:

The 76" screen is similar, but a touch larger.

LG was also showing a number of LCD screens -- both TVs and computer monitors. For example, LG had a 23-inch TFT LCD monitor with 1,920x1,200 pixels and a 400:1 contrast ratio, as well as a 42" LCD HDTV screen with 1,366x768 pixels and a 176x176-degree viewing angle.
