In what we’re modestly touting as “the most comprehensive OLED TV lineup on the planet,” LG is bringing several new models of OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
It begins with the world’s largest Ultra HD Curved OLED TV, the 77-inch-class 77EC9800. For the first time, we’re combining the eye-popping clarity of Ultra HD 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels, four times that of Full HD) with the immersive curve and lush colors of our OLED displays. The stunning size, breathtaking picture quality and vision-filling curve of this 77” beast put it in a class by itself, and it has already been honored with a 2014 CES Best of Innovations Award. The 9800 Series Ultra HD OLED TVs will also be available in 55-inch-class and 65-inch-class screens sizes, and all feature the LG Tru-ULTRA HD Engine Pro, which upconverts even standard-definition video content to near-4K resolution, so viewers can enjoy Ultra HD quality right now.
The three new Ultra HD Curved OLED TVs are on view at the LG booth.
Also on display is the beautiful new Gallery OLED TV, model 55EA8800. Designed for uncompromising high-definition performance in an elegant form factor, our Gallery OLED TV is surrounded by an exquisite frame that conceals the innovative Canvas Speaker. Exclusive to the LG Gallery OLED, the Canvas Speaker offers 2.2 channels and 100 powerful watts of audio. In addition to superb HD picture quality from broadcast, Blu-ray and other sources, the Gallery OLED also displays legendary works of art on the 55-inch-class screen, or mood-specific images paired with pleasing sounds.
The new 55EB9600 is LG’s most environmentally-friendly OLED, proof of our commitment to responsible manufacturing. The lightweight, energy-conscious 55EB9600 is designed and built with more recyclable materials and considerably fewer parts than its predecessor, and has won its own 2014 CES Innovations Award.
These new TVs represent LG’s ongoing investment in OLED technology. With demand for OLED displays expected to grow dramatically in the near future, LG is in the process of establishing OLED production bases in a number of countries outside of Korea, already completing construction of new TV plants in Brazil, Poland, China and Thailand. An advanced facility in Mexico began producing OLED TVs for the North American market last year. This global manufacturing network gives LG an enormous advantage in the competitive world of next-generation TV technology.
