See just how accurate your viewing experience can be by watching the LG 55SM8500PLA 55 inch Nano Cell 4K UHD Smart Television.

Colour and brightness levels are both properties of light which, when crystal clear, show off nano cell technology at its finest, even at wide viewing angles.

Accuracy won't be compromised at positions of up to 60 degrees away from the television, thanks to an IPS 4K panel that expands the viewing area.

In-plane switching is specific to liquid crystal displays (LCD) and can switch the molecules in the layer, as the viewer moves.

This TV has nanoparticles which assist the LCD panel behind the screen, which are exactly one nanometre in diameter.

These act as colour purifiers that absorb unwanted light sources, bringing the best out of an edge-lit backlighting system.

Reds, greens, bright whites and dark blacks are just part of a palette containing over a billion colours, with more than 1,000 shades of each primary aspect.

The gamut is widened and the contrast optimised further through high dynamic range, 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.

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

Sport, shows and music are more than covered, but a truly cinematic experience can be provided by Dolby Vision and Atmos, which are powerful versions of HDR.

The deep-learning algorithm required to keep this process fluid is made possible by artificial intelligence, which comes from the second-generation A7 Processor chip.

Lower definition content can also be sharpened and upscaled to a near 4K quality, through the processor, which handles the webOS operating system with ease.

WebOS provides access to plenty of video streaming services and apps, plus management of connected devices from one home hub.

Players will relish gaming in 4K HDR, with low input lags, while enjoying the benefits of LG's most-advanced LED TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV at this price Sound is not brilliant but good for a slimetv - so I got a sound bar. HD TV upscaling is excellent and almost indistinguishable from 4k content (which could be a bit sharper).Programme guide is slow.
