LG expands 4K Ultra HD range
December 31, 2014
LG Electronics (LG) will be unveiling its expanded line-up of 4K Ultra HD TVs, with new designs, more features and picture quality enhancements, at the 2015 International CES in Las Vegas from January 6-9. This will be the first opportunity for audiences to get a first-hand look at LG’s full collection of 4K Ultra HD TVs for the 2015 model year.
LG’s 4K Ultra HD TV with Wide Colour LED technology, making its début at CES 2015, utilises different phosphor-based LEDs to display greater colour depth and more lifelike images. LG will also be unveiling for the first time ever its 4K Ultra HD TVs with Quantum Dot technology, which offers high colour accuracy along with a 30 per cent increase in the colour gamut.
Also new for 2015 is LG’s Natural Colour feature which minimizes colour reproduction errors while Contrast Optimizer maximises colour contrast and brightness.
Five of LG’s 4K Ultra HD TV models come equipped with a multi-channel Ultra Surround System, developed in partnership with audio expert Harman/Kardon. Deep, rich and powerful sound is guaranteed to further enhance the level of viewer immersion.
LG’s newly upgraded proprietary smart TV platform, webOS 2.0, is even more user-friendly than its predecessor, letting users explore the system’s full potential in intuitive ways. Booting time has been reduced by up to 60 per cent and connectivity to external devices is even more effortless than before. Users can also customise their own menus on the Launcher Bar for a more personalised experience.
LG has also integrated its sophisticated 4K Upscaler algorithm into its 4K Ultra HD TV line-up for smooth rendering of SD, HD and Full HD content into near Ultra HD quality images. The built-in 4K High Efficiency Video Codec (HEVC) Decoder supports both 30p and 60p 4K content from external devices, helping to assure that LG TVs will be compatible with future Ultra HD transmission standards.
“LG 4K Ultra HD TVs are designed to offer a viewing experience unmatched in the TV industry,” said In-kyu Lee, senior vice president and head of the TV and monitor division at the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. “The breathtaking picture quality is underpinned by our latest ColorPrime series for a truly superb home entertainment experience.”
