Witness pure colour through the vibrancy of the LG 55SM8600PLA 55 inch Nano Cell 4K UHD Smart Television.

LG's most-advanced LED TV calls upon nanoparticles, which are one nanometre in diameter, with light absorbing material of the same size.

This becomes a filter so that colours naturally shine through, emanating from the LCD display with remarkable realism.

The IPS (In-plane switching) panel expands the viewing field and retains precision at angles of up to 60 degrees, free of colour wash or flashes.

The LEDs are edge-lit, so beam from the corners of the set, and are controlled by a luminance optimiser for local dimming and colour calibration through CalMAN software.

Black levels and bright whites alike are as the scene intended, with that and everything in-between handled by a palette of over a billion colours.

There's high dynamic range reproduction for all settings through LG's own 4K Cinema HDR, Advanced HDR by Technicolor and HDR10 Pro formats.

Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) is also on hand as a single mastering process from live production, that adapts differing light displays as a scene-referral system.

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

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

Motion Pro inserts a black frame between every other for flowing gameplay, with the 4K HFR high frame rate updated vid HDMI.

Two channel speakers provide effective surround sound, with a 20-watt output, with digital alignment in audio processing by Dolby Vision and Atmos Cinema Experience.

The A7 Intelligent Processor has upscaling properties, which updates lower definition to near 4K quality whatever the source.

LG's Smart ThinQ app and Google Assistant compatibility work in harmony, through voice control, to interact with users and search for content through the Magic Remote.

Netflix, Prime Video and YouTube are ready to go, on the webOS Smart TV platform, with the LG webOS app store on hand to download further video streaming services.
