LG Introduces Powerful Audio And Video Products With Enhanced Smart TV Functions And Intuitive User Experience

LG's 2013 Lineup Features Powerful Sound, Innovative Smart Features, And a Myriad of Connectivity Options

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Dec. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Led by new sound bars, docking speakers and connected Blu-ray Disc players, LG Electronics (LG) today unveiled its 2013 audio and video lineup.

Previewing the official launch at next month's International CES® in Las Vegas, LG announced a broad new array of products including: the BH9430PW 9.1-channel speaker system, NB4530A Sound Bar, BP730 Blu-ray player with Smart TV features, the ND8630 Dual Docking Speaker and the NP6630 Portable Speaker. These advanced products clearly illustrate LG's commitment to delivering users captivating audio, superior Smart TV functionality, a highly intuitive user experience.

"A home theater system is much more than just a TV and speakers; it's a comprehensive package," said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG's Home Entertainment Company. "LG offers superb audio and video products to help consumers realize a truly immersive home cinema experience. By implementing advanced technologies, smart connectivity and control, LG will continue to be a leader in the audio visual segment in 2013."

True Cinema Sound: Audio System That Rivals Theaters

LG emphasized improved sound quality with its Home Theater Systems this year, which is best exemplified by the BH9430PW, a high-quality surround sound speaker system designed to take the movie viewing experience to the next level. LG opted to employ speaker cones using high-tensile Aramid fiber, which is used in high-end home theaters and results in a wider range of sound, including defined, deep bass with near-zero sound distortion.  Additionally, the 9.1-channel system creates four additional channels in addition to the typical 5.1 setup, delivering an even more immersive audio experience. A chorus of stunning sound is produced by the front tallboy and rear satellite speakers, helping to fill the entire room with a soundscape that rivals that of an actual cinema. The system's 3D Surround Processor analyzes content to distribute sound in multiple directions while maintaining an appropriate balance.

A new convenience feature added to the 2013 lineup is called Private Sound Mode, which lets consumers feed the system's sound directly to their smartphone via Wi-Fi (sold separately) where they can listen with any regular earbuds. Now, the rest of the family isn't disturbed when one member wants to enjoy their home theater system at inconvenient times, for example late at night or when others are on the phone. Finally, the BH9430PW is compatible with iPhones® and iPads® to charge the devices and provide access to stored content.

Also serving as a smart hub, the BH9430PW supports Near Field Communication (NFC), which offers wireless and seamless content mirroring from smartphones and other compatible external devices. In addition, it has other excellent Smart TV capabilities such as web browsing*. Additional Home Theaters Systems in the lineup include the BH9230BW, BH6830SW and BH6730S.
