CES 2008 | LG | PG70 Wireless Plasma

It includes the 50-inch 50PG70 and the 60-inch 60PG70. Yes, you’ll still need to connect the power cord, but all those pesky audio-video connections can be moved to a separate AV transceiver box that networks with the panel over the 802.11n wireless standard. Judging from LG’s claims regarding its similar wireless LCDs, the box can be set up to 50 feet from the panel and going wireless doesn’t impact picture or sound quality. Unlike those LCDs and Samsung’s units, however, the box on the PG70 series is optional (price TBD), so you can wait to invest in wireless.

These sets will carry THX Display certification, for what that’s worth, when they ship in the third quarter of 2008–pricing was not disclosed at press time. Other notable improvements include an ISF mode that has a user-accessible color temperature adjustment with 10 separate grayscale points, which should help calibrators improve color accuracy.
