Selected Features

IPS Panel

LG 55NANO81ANA has an in-plane switching (IPS) panel which is not commonly used in LCD TVs as they suffer from light leakage which lead to the lower contrast and poor HDR experience. However, this type of panel can provide better viewing angle and color accuracy compared to the VA panel.


Nano Cell Technology

LG Nano Cell technology uses particles to absorb unwanted light wavelengths and enhance the purity of the red and green colors displayed on the screen. In addition, they create subtler, more accurate colors that stay true, even at wide viewing angles. So, even if the whole family is gathered around the TV, everyone has the best seat in the house, whether theyโ€™re front and center, or across the room and off to the side.
