New LG TVs redefine viewing and user experience

Date:18 January 2022 Author: Byron Lukas Tags:, , , ,

The leader of the global premium TV market for nine years and counting, and a CES Innovation Award honoree for eight consecutive years, LG OLED TV, has reshaped the premium TV segment to become the first choice for millions of consumers worldwide.

The OLED TVs employ self-lighting pixels that can be turned on and off individually to deliver perfect blacks, incredibly natural colours and infinite contrast. Backlight-free, OLED is thinner and lighter than every other display technology, allowing for the creation of unprecedented form factors such as bendable and rollable TVs.

Featuring LG’s advanced OLED panel, the new G2 series models are in a class of their own. The next level in OLED’s evolution, the OLED evo technology featured in both G2 and select C2 series delivers higher brightness for ultra-realistic images with amazing clarity and detail.

Powered by LG’s new α (Alpha) 9 Gen 5 intelligent processor, the company’s Brightness BoosterTM technology also enables G2 series TVs to deliver even more brightness through improved heat dissipation and a more advanced algorithm.

LG’s 2022 G2 series also introduces a new 83-inch model and the world’s first 97-inch OLED model to complement the 55-, 65- and 77-inch TVs already in the lineup. The LG G2 series delivers a refined design with its attractive flush-to-the-wall Gallery Design while LG’s C2 series offers the most diverse selection of screen sizes with a total of six for 2022.

The world’s first 42-inch OLED TV, ideal for console and PC gaming, in addition to 48, 55, 65, 77, 83 inches features thinner bezels for a more immersive viewing experience in addition to giving the TV a sleeker design.

Faster and Smarter
At the heart of most of LG’s new TV models, the α9 Gen 5 leverages deep learning to enhance upscaling performance and give onscreen images a more three-dimensional quality by making the foreground and background elements more distinct from one another. The α9 Gen 5 also expands the capabilities of LG’s AI Sound Pro feature to provide viewers with more lifelike audio, enabling the TVs’ built-in speakers to produce virtual 7.1.2 surround sound.

Upgraded UX
The latest version of LG’s innovative Smart TV platform brings the user experience to life on LG’s new TVs, delivering maximum convenience and easier content discovery. webOS 22 introduces personal profiles so users can enjoy a more customized viewing experience. Under each profile, users can set up fast access to their favourite streaming services, get tailored content recommendations based on viewing history and receive real-time alerts to keep up with favourite sports teams. Logging into profiles can be performed either from the TV browser or from a smartphone with NFC Magic Tap.

Outstanding Picture Quality
Acknowledged by consumers, tech experts and the biggest names in the film industry, LG OLED TVs continue to raise the bar for picture quality. The panels found in the 2022 OLED lineups have been certified by global product testing agency Intertek for 100 per cent colour fidelity and 100 per cent colour volume. LG OLED TVs are unique in their ability to match the colours in the original source content and express all colours accurately regardless of how bright or dark the displayed images may be.

All 2022 LG OLEDs are certified flicker-free by both TÜV Rheinland and Underwriters Laboratories and glare-free by UL. LG’s OLED panels have also been recognized by TÜV Rheinland for their low blue light performance and are the first in the world that meet the low blue light emission requirement of Eyesafe, a U.S.-based health standards agency. And not only does LG TVs make it easier for creators to appreciate their accuracy, they also make it easier for customers to see movies as their creators intended as they were the first in 2021 to offer auto-switching to Filmmaker Mode when enjoying Amazon Prime Video content.

Unmatched in Gaming
LG OLED has claimed many gaming first titles over the years: first OLED TV to support NVIDIA G-SYNC® Compatible and first 8K OLED TV to demonstrate 8K gaming with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 Series graphics cards. With its 1 millisecond response time, low input lag and up to four HDMI ports supporting multiple HDMI 2.1 features, it’s no surprise that LG OLED is the ideal choice for console and PC gaming fans. And with support for NVIDIA GeForce NOW and Google Stadia cloud gaming platforms, gamers can start having fun by just connecting a compatible controller.

New for 2022, LG customers can easily select and switch between game-specific features and display presets directly from the TV’s Game Optimizer menu. The Game Optimizer menu provides quick access to the new Dark Room Mode, which adjusts screen brightness for a better gaming experience when the lights are off. Settings for G-SYNC® Compatible, FreeSync™ Premium and variable refresh rate (VRR) are easily accessible from Game Optimizer. What’s more, a new sports mode joins presets for the first-person shooter, role-playing and real-time strategy games, delivering more details for even more realism.

Meanwhile, LG is also unveiling an expanded QNED TV lineup for 2022. Boasting LG’s own Quantum Dot NanoCell technology, the fresh range offers stellar colour reproduction with 100 per cent colour volume. Able to deliver rich, accurate colours in the brightest and darkest areas of a scene, LG QNED Mini LED TV is capable of amazing contrast thanks to LG’s Precision Dimming Technology. All models starting from the QNED90 Series are certified for 100% colour consistency so viewers see the same, high-quality image every time, even at different viewing angles.
