LG owns first OLED TV in local market


LG knows how to impress with their eye-melting TVs, and soon their claimed world’s first LG OLED TV will be hitting Philippine shores soon.

The new LG OLED TV boasts a whooping 55-inch LG OLED screen, with extra crisp picture and sound quality. And the TV’s ultra-slim built gives it high-versatility and weighing only 10kg, you can’t go wrong in placing this TV anywhere on your home.

But LG took breaths away when they revealed their Curved OLED technology.

LG took OLED technology a notch further on April 2013 when it globally revealed the Gallery OLED TV and Curved OLED TV, a 55-inch wide and 4.3mm thick TV which promises the immersive IMAX experience in the comfort of the viewer’s home. LG states that it had taken researchers more than five years to develop the optimum curvature to make the entire screen surface equidistant from the viewer’s eyes. This eliminates screen-edge visual distortion and loss of detail.

The world’s first curved screen by LG heralds a new paradigm of display shape and quality, leading a transition from the flat screen to the curved. The gently curved screen is the most optimal form for any display, shaped after natural human sight and vision. Previous modes of display have been restricted by technical constraints, and catered to the machine rather than the viewer. LG is the first to attempt ergonomical design for human comfort.

The Curved OLED TV is only 16.3kg light and has a Carbon Fiber-Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) to add additional strength to the beautifully curved screen. LG provides a wall mount (LG 55EA9800) specifically for the TV and includes thin transparent film speakers in the crystal clear stand, providing high-quality sound without compromising the TV’s seamless design.

The advanced OLED technology uses organic compounds that emit light directly when an electric current is applied. Unlike LCD displays, backlights are not needed, reducing power consumption and distortions even at extreme angles. Picture quality is enhanced with LG’s unique WRGB technology, Color Refiner, and Infinite Contrast Ratio. To perfect the experience, LG OLED TV also combines the company’s industry-leading CINEMA 3D technology with Smart TV capabilities.

“LG is looking forward to launching the world’s first Gallery OLED TV and Curved OLED TV in the Philippines,” said Hoony Bae, vice president of LG Electronics Philippines’ Home Entertainment division.

    Wow it’s only 4.3mm thick? That’s very convenient.
