January 7, 2009 LG Display is showing its latest kit behind closed doors at CES in a private room at the Bellagio Hotel - an LCD TV with 480Hz refresh rate , further accelerating the advent of ultra high-speed images without sacrificing picture quality. LG Display’s ‘scanning backlight’ is the technology that enables a backlight to be repeatedly turned on and off to reduce motion blur and enhance contrast. When combined with the company’s 240 Hz technology, the display can refresh 480 images per second.
