LG announces 55″ OLED HDTV, looks good enough for an Apple Television

Posted on 01-01-2012 07:00 pm


Var­i­ous reports through­out the year have had LG pro­vid­ing the TV behind the Apple HDTV.  Noth­ing con­clu­sive has come up how­ev­er.

As far as the big dis­play mak­ers are con­cerned, Apple’s rela­tion­ship with LGis prob­a­bly the strongest.  LG makes iPod Touch and iPhone Reti­na Dis­plays and Apple secured a $500 mil­lion dol­lar invest­ment in LG dis­plays in 2009.  The net of that was a tem­po­rary exclu­sive on the pan­els for the 27-inch dis­play that Apple’s iMacs and now Thun­der­bolt Dis­plays now use.  Sony makes OLEDs as well but doesn’t have a strong rela­tion­ship with Apple, at least as far as dis­plays are con­cerned.  The other big OLED maker is Sam­sung, who is now tan­gled with Apple in patent dis­putes.

So all of that being said, look at these things which will be shown at CES: (full sized shots and Press release below):

LG Unveils Much Antic­i­pat­ed 55-inch OLED TV for First Time at CES 2012

SEOUL, Jan. 2, 2012 – LG Elec­tron­ics (LG) will present the future of TVtech­nol­o­gy at the Con­sumer Elec­tron­ics Show (CES) in Las Vegas with the unveil­ing of the world’s largest OLED TV with a dis­play size of 55 inch­es. By incor­po­rat­ing the com­pa­ny’s 4-Color Pix­els and Color Refin­er fea­tures withLG Dis­play’s advanced OLED (organ­ic light-emitting diode) pan­els, LG OLEDTV gen­er­ates the most nat­ur­al col­ors of any TV set at a much lower price point than could have been achieved using the stan­dard man­u­fac­tur­ing process.

“Work­ing close­ly with LG Dis­play, we have a prod­uct which not only deliv­ers on all the advan­tages of OLED over LCD but at a sig­nif­i­cant­ly lower cost than what could be achieved using exist­ing OLED man­u­fac­tur­ing technologies,” said Havis Kwon, Pres­i­dent and CEO of LG Elec­tron­ics Home Enter­tain­ment Com­pa­ny. “OLED is clear­ly the future of home TV enter­tain­ment and LG is very focused on mak­ing this excit­ing tech­nol­o­gy as easy as pos­si­ble for con­sumers to embrace.”

What sets LG’s TV pic­ture apart from other OLED TVs is 4-Color Pix­els and Color Refin­er which work togeth­er to gen­er­ate nat­ur­al and accu­rate col­ors that are sharp and con­sis­tent. The 4-Color Pix­els fea­ture allows for more accu­rate color depic­tion by using a set of four col­ors (red, green blue and white) in com­par­i­son to the RGB setup used by other OLED TV man­u­fac­tur­ers. Color Refin­er ensures con­sis­ten­cy in col­ors from a wider view­ing angle via an LG algo­rithm which improves and refines hues and tones. This is in con­trast to other OLED TVs which often exhib­it dras­tic changes in hues from dif­fer­ent view­ing angles and abnor­mal color gamut.

Boast­ing an infi­nite con­trast ratio, LG’s OLED TV exhibits vivid col­ors and the small­est details regard­less of the over­all lumi­nance of the on-screen image. In turn, col­ors and details through­out an entire image are pre­served with utmost clar­i­ty and sharp­ness, even when dis­play­ing scenes with dark light­ing. Such color capa­bil­i­ties are tech­ni­cal­ly impos­si­ble with LED andLCD dis­play pan­els. And at 1,000 times faster than LED/LCD dis­plays, LG’sOLED TV shows crys­tal clear motion with­out any blur­ring or bleed­ing.

And LG’s OLED TV is as aes­thet­i­cal­ly pleas­ing as it is tech­no­log­i­cal­ly sophis­ti­cat­ed. LG’s Slim and Nar­row Bezel design gives the TV a sleek, min­i­mal look and at only 4 mm thin and a mere 7.5 kg, LG’s OLED TV prac­ti­cal­ly blends into the wall.
