The Best of Picture and Sound

Revolutionise the best of film and television with the LG 55SM8500PLA. It combines amazing technology to provide the best possible picture. The exclusive, α7 Gen 2 Intelligent Processor uses AI Picture and Sound enhancement to ensure that every image is sharp, and every colour is lifelike.

Advanced nano-engineering in the NanoCell display also makes for incredible image quality – thanks to precise and consistent pixel placement, and uniform colour volume. Whatever view you have of your television – from a prime spot or at an off-centre angle – you’ll see shows at their best.

Dolby Atmos® Cinematic Sound lets you experience cinema-worthy audio in the comfort of your own home. Using object based sound output, it boosts your surround sound to create immersive audio that really makes an impression. Whether you’re watching an intense action sequence or a musical drama, every special effect and note of the soundtrack will reach new heights in the 2.0 channel speaker.
