    So with CES happening in January what do you want to see from LG?

    For me I would love to see there Nano LED sets to be progressed further. The idea is sound but this years offering was a let down to some. It would be good if things were progressed to a point the Sharp Elite had a run for its money.

    On the plasma front I do hope black levels have improved and the image retention.

    Is LG Dave around to share some early facts? ;)

    Would love to see a big screen OLED. Or a good Nano without the problems we know about.

    OLED's looks like a winner! I can't see it being below £3,000 by next year though...

    The "nanotech" screens look amazing if you are lucky enough to get one without the "problems" and judging by the decent photo's they are AMAZING!

    That sounds great but will it even be available to buy? They say its just a prototype so they might not even hit the shops next year.
    It should though have better 3d than any plasma or LED so looking forward to reading about it!

    Matte screen, low input lag (-32ms, preferably -16ms), even backlight, decent black levels. That's pretty much it.

    Well if you read the article better then you will read that " LGD will launch a 55-inch OLED TV by the second half of next year."

    Truth be told we have waited and expected a lot from LG over the years and they did not deliver so why should they deliver know? Thank god for Samsung and Panasonic that they have also anounced OLED TVs before the Olympics and Euro so given the chance to wait for LG's OLED I would go for something that is for sure to come on the market. But let's face it, the first company that will bring a decent OLED TV at a decent price on the market that will be an instant best seller.

    Let's wait and see what the CES 2012 will bring.

    Edit: Another question is will it be Ultra High definition? the press realease mentions Ultra definition but is that a possibility or will it definetely be here for 2012 because imagine Passive 3D on a Ultra HD panel...pure bliss!!!

    They're not real OLED displays though are they? Like the current crop aren't LED TVs. Still, exciting times ahead. :D

    Yes they are OLED. From what I understand they are white OLEDS with RGB color filters but what is important is that they are dimmed at the pixel level so they are OLEDS. Whether they have problem with the color reproduction is to be seen in the future but i guess they wouldn't go on with it if it wouldn't work now would they ;) ????

    Well I think the LG one isn't at least. It's "just" using white OLEDs as the backlight isn't it? I guess we'll find out soon enough.

    To be honest until I see or hear how LG is implementing their technology I will not comment because they are known for distorting the name of things(see nano-led which are not nano-leds). Theoretically LG will use the technology that it acquired from Kodak in 2009 read here for more info.

    I quote: " LG Display's panel uses an Oxide-TFT backplane (this was announced before). According to LG this backplane offers an identical image to LTPS panels, while being significantly cheaper. The TV uses a white-OLED with color filter design (this was the technology LGD acquired from Kodak back in 2009). "

    Anything else is to be seen shortly at CES 2012.

    Edit: I think you may be refering to this article
    LG's 8-Gen line will produce OLED-backlit LCDs, not true-OLED TVs

    ...and you may be right as LG is a master in marketing new technologies that are confusing to the public. i just hope that if they use that hybrid way to create their new TVs that they will be stopped in calling it OLED TV.

    LG USA senior vice president James Fishler calls it “the ultimate display device” .... you know what that means right??? Expect a price of 4-5K (HD guru estimates 8000$, sounds about right)which no matter how ultimate it might be is not going to be finding its way to my living room. Plus I really thought this was going to be Ultra HD so it will give a full HD passive 3d. I guess not!!!
