Experience more colours at wide viewing angles with the LG 49SM8600PLA 49 inch Nano Cell 4K UHD Smart Television.

Nano cell technology uses particles that are one nanometre in diameter, which make a noticeable difference on LCD screens.

These nanoparticles are colour purifiers that retain their clarity at angles of up to 60 degrees, with nano-sized light absorbing material blocking rays that are not needed.

This is applied to the colour filter to block unnecessary rays, combining with the liquid crystal panel display and IPS (in-plane switching) to expand the gamut.

LG's most-advanced LED TV has refined colour purity, with a pure RGB model producing true accuracy that portrays tones and shades perfectly.

Colour consistency is calibrated automatically through CalMAN software, which is a video solution that monitors performance.

Black levels, with a luminance optimiser for local dimming, and bright whites are accurate and vivid, with a field of vision that strives to be well-lit.

Moving images are remastered in real time through the second-generation A7 Intelligent Processor, which has artificial intelligence capabilities.

High dynamic range can reproduce peak brightness through LG's own 4K Cinema HDR, Advanced HDR by Technicolor and HDR10 Pro formats.

This is made possible by dynamic metadata, which live broadcasts don't produce. For this, Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) can correct differing light displays.

Connectable devices can be managed through the television and HDR gaming boasts low input lags for gamers, reacting as quickly as the players do.

There are 10 picture modes to choose from including HDR effect, Technicolor Expert, Game, Sports, Cinema, Vivid, Standard, Eco, Dark Room and Bright Room.

Stunning surround sound is provided by two channel down-firing speakers, with a 20 watt out. Audio processing is provided by Dolby Vision and Atmos Cinema Experience.

The A7 Intelligent Processor has upscaling properties, which analyses lower definition content to sharpen pixels and restore lost detail.

There is a plethora of programming available through the 4.5 webOS Smart TV platform where Netflix, Prime Video and YouTube are ready to go.

The LG webOS app store provides a gateway to further video streaming services, controlled by a Magic Remote which also has voice control capabilities.
