Get the best picture, without the guesswork
LG knows that when you take your new TV out of the box, it's not necessarily set up to look its best in your room. The 50PT350's built-in screen calibration system helps you dial in key settings like black level, color, and sharpness, so the picture's optimized for your room and tastes. And since the TV can automatically adjust the brightness of the picture to best match the light levels in your room, the picture will look consistently vivid and detailed.

Video Features

Dual XD Engine: The LG 50PT350 combines two of LG's exclusive XD Engines to maximize picture quality for any type of video content. By combining XD Engine processors, panel performance is optimized ensuring higher color accuracy and more realistic images.

600Hz Max Sub Field Driving: The television's 600Hz refresh rate virtually eliminates motion blur for an incredible viewing experience of fact action sports, movies, and video games.

3,000,000:1 Mega Dynamic Contrast: The Plasma TV delivers a Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 3,000,000:1; which provides stunning colors and deep black, so your picture's details don't get lost in the shadows.

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 Plasma 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 consumption.

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.

720p Resolution: The LG 50PT350 Plasma TV has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 . All of the television's video inputs are displayed at  1366 x 768 (720p).

Video Inputs: The LG Plasma HDTV features HDMI, Component, and Composite video inputs.

  • HDMI: The three HDMI inputs can be used to connect a DVD player, Blu-ray player, HDTV or Satellite Set-top box with an HDMI output. The HDMI 1/2 inputs 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 jacks will accept 1080p (60/24Hz),1080i, 720p, and 480p video signals; as well as support Deep Color and x.v.Color.
  • Component Video: The two Component Video inputs will accept 1080p (60/24Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals.
  • Composite: The TV also features two single composite video inputs which will accept a 480i video signal.

Note: The television's HDMI inputs do not accept 480i video signals.

Picture Size (Aspect Ratio): This feature lets you choose the way an analog picture with a 4:3 aspect ratio is displayed on your TV. You can select a different aspect ratio depending on input source (analog broadcasting, digital broadcasting, video input). You can select from:

  • 4:3: Choose 4:3 when you want to view a picture with an original 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • 16:9: Adjust the picture horizontally, in a linear proportion to fill the entire screen.
  • Just Scan: Normally the edges of video signals are cropped 1-2%. Just Scan turns off this cropping and shows the complete video.
  • Zoom: Choose Zoom when you want to view the picture without any alteration. However, the top and bottom portions of the picture will be cropped.
  • Cinema Zoom: Choose Cinema Zoom when you want to enlarge the picture in correct proportion. This enlarges an image with cinemascope aspect ratio (2.35:1) without distortion.
  • Set By Program: Selects the proper picture proportion to match the source's image (16:9 or 4:3).

Picture Wizard (Picture Control): This feature lets you adjust the picture quality of the original image. The LG 50PT350 TV's Picture Wizard (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 features takes the guesswork out of picture adjustments.

Picture Modes (Presets): There are factory presets for picture settings available in the user menu. You can use these preset modes or change each picture setting manually.

  • APS (Auto Power Saving): Maximizes video images while reducing power consumption, without hurting picture quality.
  • Standard: This mode provides optimum viewing for general use.
  • Vivid: Maximizes the effect of the video by strengthening the contrast, brightness, color, and sharpness.
  • Cinema: Optimizes video for watching videos.
  • Sport: Emphasizes dynamic video and primary color for optimum sports watching.
  • Game: Provides fast response speed for fast gaming system.
  • User: This mode allows you to adjust the video quality settings manually. You can adjust the following.
    • Contrast: Increase or decrease the gradient of the video signal. You may use Contrast when the bright part of the picture is saturated.
    • Brightness: Adjusts the base level of the signal in the picture. You may use Brightness when the dark part of the picture is saturated.
    • Sharpness: Adjusts the level of crispness in the edges between the light and dark areas of the picture. The lower the level, the softer the image.
    • 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.

Picture Improvement Technology (Advanced Control): Advanced Control allows you to adjust some of the advanced video features of the LG Plasma TV.

  • Dynamic Contrast: Adjusts the contrast to keep it at the best level according to the brightness of the screen. The picture is improved by making bright parts brighter and dark parts darker.
  • Dynamic Color: Adjusts screen colors so that they look livelier, richer and clearer. This feature enhances hue, saturation and luminance so that red, blue and green will look more vivid.
  • Noise Reduction: Reduces screen noise without compromising video quality.
  • Gamma: You can adjust the brightness of dark areas and middle gray level areas of the picture.
  • Black Level: Sets the black level of the screen to the proper level.
  • 24p Real Cinema (Film Mode): Makes video clips recorded in a film look more natural by eliminating judder effect.
  • x.v.YCC: This feature produces richer colors from x.v.YCC compatible sources.
  • Color Gamut: Maximizes the utilization of color to increase color quality.
  • Edge Enhancer: Shows clearer and distinctive, yet natural corners of the video.
  • Color Standard: Converts the color of a different video to HD color.
  • White Balance: Adjusts the overall color of the screen.
  • Color Management System: A tool that allows you to make adjustments by using test patterns; this does not affect other colors, but can be used to selectively adjust the 6 color areas (Red/Green/Blue/Cyan/Mgt/Yellow).

ISFccc Mode: This TV contains the detailed calibrations necessary for professional certification by the Imaging Science Foundation. The resulting ISF "day" and "night" modes will then be accessible by the user to experience the best this LG HDTV has to offer. Sophisticated and detailed calibrations can be made through the ISFccc mode.

Note: Detailed calibration requires a licensed technician. Please contact your local dealer to inquire about an ISF certified technician.

Image Sticking Minimization (ISM): A frozen still picture displayed on the screen for prolonged periods can result in a ghost image. You can use Orbiter to help prevent image sticking. The other two functions are for removing a ghost image.

  • Normal: If image sticking is never a problem, ISM is not necessary - set to Normal.
  • Orbiter: Orbiter may help prevent ghost images. However, it is best not to allow any fixed image to remain on the screen. To avoid a ghost image on the screen, the image will move every 2 minutes.
  • Color Wash: The color block with the screen moved a little and the white pattern are alternately displayed. It is difficult to see the after image on all colors. Once it has been corrected it will not be visible in any color.
  • White Wash: White Wash removes ghost images from the screen. Use sparingly. Watch the TV normally for a while before using this feature to see if the ghost image disappears on its own.

Audio Features

Infinite Surround: Infinite Surround is a patented LG proprietary sound processing technology that delivers immersive 5.1 surround sound with just two front speakers.

Sound Modes: Sound Mode lets you enjoy the best sound without any special adjustment using factory presets. Standard, Music, Cinema, Sport, and Game are preset for optimum sound quality. There is also a User Mode which allows you to adjust the television's Bass & Treble.

Tone Control: You can adjust the TV's Bass & Treble output.

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 each program.

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. The optical digital audio output will only output in 2ch stereo from sources connected to the television via HDMI, RCA, or USB.

Note: There is no analog audio output.

When using the RGB (D-Sub 15-pin) jack, you must use the PC Audio 3.5mm input for your audio connection. Any HDMI input can also be used with a computer. The TV can be set to automatically adjust to the video signals received, or you can use the setup menu to adjust the screen's Position, Size, and Phase.
