The LG 47LE5500 is an edge-lit LED television released in 2010. The 47 inch display system is capable of full 1080p high definition and combines LED technology with LG's LED Plus technology, a new addition to their 2010 releases. LED televisions provide a higher dynamic contrast ratio, resulting in clearer, truer blacks and a richer visual display while still keeping a slim television design. LED Plus expands on this and allows for higher picture quality by adjusting 16 addressable segments on the display to tailor picture quality. The 47LE5500 includes a connectivity package of DLNA compatibility, an Ethernet jack, and access to NetCast Entertainment which opens up such services as Youtube, Netflix, and Skype to be used directly on the television. Wireless functionality can also be expended to Blu-Ray players, cable and satellite receivers, and video game systems to avoid using wires to connect them with the television. Power consumption is also addressed with a sensor that detects light levels in the television's environment and automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen accordingly to only use the amount of energy that is required for the room.
