provides a slim profile and delivers amazing brightness, clarity and color
detail, as well as greater energy efficiency compared to conventional LCD TVs.
Triple XD Engine: The LG LS5700 series LED-LCD TV utilizes LG's
exclusive Triple XD Engine video processing system for optimum picture quality.
The Triple XD Engine delivers a dynamic contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1 for
stunning colors and deep blacks, so the TV's images are crisp, rich, and
TruMotion 120Hz: TruMotion 120Hz provides clear, smoother images, even during fast action scenes
crating a more crisper picture. TruMotion 120Hz technology lets you see sports,
video games, and high-speed action with virtually no motion blur; letting the
LED-LCD TV keep up with your fast- moving entertainment.
HDTV Tuner: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and
Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive
and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.
1080p Video Resolution: The LG LS5700 series LED-LCD TV has a
display resolution of 1920 x 1080. All of the television's video inputs are
1920 x 1080 (1080p); regardless of input signal. The LG LED-LCD HDTV features HDMI (v.1.4), Component, and
Composite video inputs.
- HDMI (v.1.4 with Deep Color): The four HDMI (v.1.4) inputs can be used to connect a DVD player, Blu-ray player, or
satellite/cable box with an HDMI output. The HDMI 4 input can also be used
to connect a device with a DVI output (a DVI-to-HDMI adapter cable is
necessary). If a DVI-equipped device is used, a separate audio cable will
also be needed from the device to the "PC/DVI Audio In" 3.5mm stereo audio
jack. No audio cables are needed for an HDMI-equipped device. The HDMI jack
will accept 1080p (60/24Hz), 1080i, 720p, and 480p video signals; as well as
support Deep Color, and x.v.Color. The television's HDMI inputs do not accept 480i video
- Component Video: The Component Video input will
accept 1080p (60/24Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. The
component video inputs consist of a 3.5mm jack and a 6" mini-to-component
video adapter. This same component video output shares the audio signal with
the composite audio/video terminal.
- Composite: The composite video input will accept
480i only. The composite
audio/video terminal consists of an AV 3.5mm connector and a 6"
mini-to-composite video/stereo RCA adapter.
24p Real Cinema: Makes video clips recorded in a film look
more natural by eliminating judder effect. DVD and Blu-ray movies are filmed at
24 frames per second (fps). With 24p Real Cinema, every frame is consistently
processed 5 times in 1/24 of a second producing 120 fps with TruMotion or 2
times in 1/24 of a second producing 48 fps without TruMotion, thus totally
eliminating the judder effect.
Picture Size (Aspect Ratio): You can select a different aspect ratio depending on input source (analog
broadcasting, digital broadcasting, video input).
- 16:9: Resizes the image ratio to fit 16:9 screen.
- Just Scan: Displays high-quality image without loss. Only
available in DTV, HDMI, or Component (over 720p) mode).

ratio changes to 4:3 or 16:9.

- Zoom: Resizes the image to fit the screen width. The top and
bottom parts of the image may be cut off.
- Cinema Zoom: Formats an image to the cinemascope ratio (2.35:1)
and zooms in on the ratio.
Picture Wizard II
(Picture Control): This feature lets you adjust the picture quality of
the original image. The LG LS5700 series TV's Picture Wizard II (Easy Picture
Calibration) offers self-calibration with on-screen reference points for key
picture quality elements such as black level, color, tint, sharpness and
backlight levels. This feature takes the guesswork out of picture adjustments.
Picture Modes: The LG LED-LCD TV provides auto, preset, and
manual adjustment of the television's picture settings.
- Intelligent Sensor: Let the TV do the adjustments for
you. Intelligent Sensor automatically optimizes the picture to the lighting
and color conditions in the room for a more enjoyable viewing experience.
The LG LED-LCD TV's Intelligent Sensor automatically optimizes the picture
to the lighting and color conditions in the room for a more enjoyable
viewing experience. Unlike other sensors which can only sense brightness of
ambient light, LG's "Intelligent Sensor" uses 4,096 sensing steps to
evaluate its surroundings. Using a sophisticated algorithm, the LG processes
picture quality elements including brightness, contrast, color, sharpness
and white balance. The result is a picture optimized for its surroundings,
more pleasing to watch and which can also save up to 50% in power
- Presets: Easy to use factory presets for picture mode
settings include Standard (provides optimum viewing for general use), Vivid
(maximizes the effect of the video by strengthening the
contrast/brightness/color/sharpness), Cinema (optimizes video for watching
videos), Game (provides fast response speed for fast gaming system).
- User Adjustment: This mode allows you to adjust the
video quality settings manually. Backlight (adjusts the brightness of the
backlight behind the LED-LCD screen), Contrast (increase or decrease the
gradient of the video signal), Brightness (adjusts the base level of the
signal in the picture) Sharpness (adjusts the level of crispness in the
edges between the light and dark areas of the picture), Color (adjusts
intensity of all colors), Tint (adjusts the balance between red and green
levels), Color Temp (set to warm to enhance hotter colors such as red, or
set to cool to enhance cooler colors such as blue).
- Expert Mode: The LG LED-LCD TV is ISFccc Ready and
contains the detailed standards necessary for professional calibration of
brightness, contrast, tint, sharpness, color levels and much more to meet
local lighting conditions for both day and nighttime viewing. Settings are
added to preset Expert 1/2 modes for easy access from your LG remote.
Picture Improvement Technology (Advanced Control):

ARC (Audio Return Channel):
The Audio Return Channel in HDMI
1.4 enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to
your A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any
separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the
television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used
to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables
connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection,
inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard
through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input. The
audio from the TV's tuner, network connection can pass as Dolby Digital or 2ch
PCM. HDMI, USB, and analog connected devices will be output as 2ch PCM only.
Note: Both the television and the receiver must support
ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that
is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI 1
input. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel
(ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is
AV Sync: If the video and sound of the television are not synced, you can adjust the delay of the audio
output to match the video.

Sport, and Game are preset for optimum sound quality. You can also adjust the
TV's sound manually by using the 5-band EQ (100Hz, 300Hz, 1khz, 3khz, 10kHz).
Clear Voice II: Clear Voice II
enhances and amplifies the frequency range of the human voice to help keep
dialogue audible when background noise swells.
Auto Volume: Auto Volume makes sure that the volume level remains
consistent whether you are watching a commercial or a regular TV program.
Because each broadcasting station has its own signal conditions,
volume adjustment may be needed every time the channel is changed. This feature
allows users to enjoy stable volume levels by making automatic adjustments for
Screen Off: You can turn the screen off and only sound is played
through the television's speakers.
Digital Audio Output: The optical digital output
terminal will output Dolby Digital (when available) or 2 channel PCM. The
digital optical output terminal only sends an audio signal in Dolby Digital
when receiving Dolby Digital surround sound from a digital broadcast channel
through the TV tuner or LG Apps TV. The optical digital audio output will
only output in 2ch stereo from sources connected to the television via HDMI,
RCA, or USB.
