The PG30 Series from LG is their 2008 entry level line of plasma televisions that feature a native 1080p resolution. The increased resolution is the major step-up over the less expensive PG20 Series, alongside larger display size options. Most of the other improvements that the PG20 made over the 2007 models are found in the PG30 including the extra calibration options, Clear Voice technology and "Invisible Speaker" system. Located above the PG30s is the PG60 Series that adds a premium styling and THX Certification.

Invisible speaker - LG's design does away with the explicit speaker system, and uses a technology that turns the entire bezel of the television into a speaker. To ensure the speaker doesn't sound horrible with this new technology LG used Mark Levinson, a supposed expert in audio design, to tune the speakers.
ISFccc Calibration - Each input can be independently set to one of the preconfigured modes, or to one of the two "Expert" modes. The Expert modes have been approved by the ISF foundation which indicates that a "professional" level of customization options are available.
Clear Voice - Alongside the invisible speaker LG improved the internal audio system and added this Clear Voice technology, that - when activated - attempts to identify human dialog and boost the volume so it doesn't get drowned out by the background noise and music.
