Bringing its cutting-edge display and optical storage technologies to public schools throughout the U.S., LG Electronics USA, Inc. has joined forces with The Creative Coalition and American Federation of Teachers as high-profile public school alumni honor outstanding teachers who influenced their lives.

Together with Creative Coalition Co-President and actor Joe Pantoliano, actress Phylicia Rashad, actor Steve Buscemi, and screenwriter Antwone Fisher, LG Electronics is providing advanced technologies to the six public schools honored during the "2005 Spotlight Awards for Teachers Making a Difference."

A long-time technology partner with The Creative Coalition, LG donated its L1980Q LCD monitor and GSA-5163D external 16X Super-Multi DVD writer to each of the schools.

The six schools received LG's 19-in FLATRON 80-series LCD monitor, reportedly able to rotate 180-degrees and bend backwards, allowing the image to be viewed in either landscape or portrait format. With the installation of included software, the unit is said to have the ability to recognize and adapt the image on the screen to rotate and reformat to fit the angle of the monitor, ideal for classroom presentations and teacher-parent conferences.

According to LG, display features the company's f-ENGINE technology – reportedly the world's first LCD picture-enhancing chip, designed to adjust brightness and contrast independently of each other.

The schools also received 16x Super-Multi DVD, which allow administrators, teachers, and pupils to back-up MP3 files, videos, digital pictures, or any large files at speeds 30 percent faster than before, according to LG. The drives can read and write in all three DVD formats -- DVD+R, DVD-R, and DVD-RAMm and feature 8.5 GB capacity.

"LG Electronics has been a loyal supporter of The Creative Coalition and our programs. LG's participation in the '2005 Spotlight Award for Teachers Making a Difference' illustrates their commitment to doing well by doing good," said Robin Bronk, executive director of The Creative Coalition.
