LG Explores the Science of Vision through partnership with the Natural History Museum
July 15, 2016
LG Electronics (LG) continues to lead not only product innovation but also marketing investment in the OLED TV category, launching a sponsorship of the Natural History Museum’s (NHM) summer exhibition, Colour and Vision: Through the Eyes of Nature. This partnership sees LG continue its commitment to a strategy that, for OLED technology, seeing truly is believing.
The exhibition partnership will utilise LG’s 4K OLED TVs to create an impressive showcase of, not only colour and vision in nature through the millennia, but also represent how OLED technology now enhances what we can visually experience with the human eye. In addition, a fully integrated marketing programme will deliver the campaign across out of home, digital and print to broaden consumer awareness of the partnership and encourage visitors to experience LG OLED for themselves. PR and social media activation will also support the partnership throughout the duration of the exhibition and the LG Piccadilly Screen will host exclusive content created by the NHM and LG.
The unique visitor experience will bring together rarely seen physical specimens from the NHM’s collection and digital content, displayed in true-to-life colours and perfect blacks that recreate the natural world in spectacular quality – just as they should be seen in the natural world. Visitors will also have the opportunity to become part of the exhibition by having a picture of their eye taken at the bespoke LG photo booth. Positioned at the entrance to the exhibition, general visitors and ticket holders will be encouraged to take a snap of their eye and upload to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #MyEye and #DiscoverOLED to be in with the chance to appear on the Wall of Eyes – a unique digital installation in the exhibition made up of OLED TVs and real specimens.
Dawn Stockell, Head of Brand LG Electronics UK, said: “LG continues to invest in OLED technology which is accounting for an ever increasing proportion of our TV business. We know that picture quality is a key factor when buying a television and our award winning LG OLED TVs deliver deep, dark blacks and vivid colours for the ultimate viewing experience. LG’s sponsorship of the Natural History Museum’s Colour and Vision exhibition is the ideal partnership; celebrating the evolution of colour and vision, where the beauty of colour in the natural world is demonstrated on LG OLED TVs.”
The exhibition space will feature the award winning 65” and 55” LG OLED EG960V and LG OLED EF950V TVs helping to bring to life elements of the exhibition with OLED’s wide colour-gamut. This includes; a wall of eyes display – featuring eyes not only from the NHM collection, but also from visitors – as well as an immersive film featuring a wall made of six OLED screens. At the end of the exhibition, consumers will also have the opportunity to see the next generation of OLED technology evolution with the LG E6 OLED 4K TV. The stylish new TV, with Picture on Glass design, features super sharp 4K resolution and will showcase content from the exhibition including how different animals see.
The exhibition opens on Friday 15th July 2016 until Sunday 6th November 2016.
