See the properties of light controlled with pinpoint precision by watching the LG 49SM8500PLA 49 inch Nano Cell 4K UHD Smart Television.

Nano cell technology is all about enhancing contrast, colour and clarity to its most refined forms, even at wide viewing angles.

It calls upon particles that are one nanometre in diameter, which act as colour purifiers that absorb unwanted light sources for meticulous brightness levels.

The edge-lit backlighting system is supported by local dimming groups these LEDs into zones which can be controlled precisely.

Reds, greens, bright whites and dark blacks form part of over a billion colours, with more than 1,000 shades of each primary aspect, that can be expressed.

High dynamic range can produce a greater field of luminosity by widening the gamut, with tone mapping for smooth transitions.

The multi-format 4K Active HDR delivers scene by scene adjustment through LG's own 4K Cinema HDR, Advanced HDR by Technicolor and HDR10 Pro.

Additional remastering for live broadcasts is supplied by Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG), which emulates light displays as they change without requiring dynamic metadata.

Dolby Vision and Atmos are powerful versions of HDR, that can provide a truly cinematic experience when watching movies.

This retains its accuracy for up to 60 degrees away from the television, thanks to an IPS 4K panel that can move around molecules in the LCD display to expand the viewing area.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are contained within the second-generation A7 Processor, which has a deep-learning algorithm.

Motion Pro ensures free-flowing footage in the native 4K frame rate of 60fps, with black frame compensation for better handling.

The A7 Processor also has upscaling properties, which effortlessly sharpens and updates lower definition content to near 4K quality whatever the source.

The webOS operating system provides access to plenty of video streaming services and apps, plus management of connected devices.

Gaming is great in 4K HDR, with low input lags, providing crystal clear settings for the players which respond as quickly as they do on LG's most-advanced LED TV.
