LG To Expand Ultra HD TV Lineup For 2013

New Models to Join LG's 84-inch Class Ultra HD TV Offering Consumers Variety of Choices to Enhance Viewing Experience

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Jan. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics (LG) is ushering in the new year with an expanded family of Ultra High Definition TVs* with new screen sizes for 2013.

At next week's International CES® in Las Vegas, LG's award-winning 84-inch class (84.04 inch diagonal) Ultra HD TV will be complemented by 55- and 65-inch class (54.6- and 64.7 inch diagonal respectively) models.

These new sizes offer the same stellar resolution and immersive viewing experience as LG's 84-inch class Ultra HD TV, which earned the CES 2013 "Best of Innovations" award in the Video Display category. LG was the first company to successfully commercialize Ultra HD flat-panel TV technology, introducing the first model in 2012.

"LG continues to pave the way in the emerging Ultra HD TV segment," said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "Using our proprietary technology, we strive to offer incredible picture quality on an enormous scale. We are extremely proud of this series as a whole and the 'Best of Innovations' award bestowed by CEA on our 84-inch class UHD TV."

All three models in the Ultra HD TV series boast the advanced Triple XD Engine. This exceptional picture processing technology creates astonishingly vivid images with a resolution of over 8 million pixels; four times the resolution (3840 x 2160) of Full HD TV panels. Additionally, the Resolution Upscaler Plus takes content of lesser image quality and renders it in high detail, creating a wealth of content for consumers.

LG's newest Magic Remote allows the user to navigate the Ultra HD TV's smart onscreen interface using gestures and voice recognition. The company's Smart TV ecosystem now includes approximately 1,400 apps and access to a growing collection of premium content services, such as 3D World and Game World**. SmartShare Plus connects users to even more media and entertainment options. This feature set offers a range of connectivity options such as Wi-Fi and Intel's Wireless Display (WiDi), which enable content to be transferred from compatible portable devices such as laptops, mobile phones, tablets and other devices.

LG has equipped its Ultra HD TVs with CINEMA 3D technology, bringing 3D entertainment into the Ultra HD arena. Astounding screen resolution, in combination with 3D effects and 3D Sound Zooming, gives consumers a true sense of being "in the action." 3D Depth Control allows viewers to fine-tune the perceived distance between objects on the screen for a customizable 3D experience. 3D Sound Zooming analyzes onscreen objects to generate sound in accordance with their virtual location and movement. In addition, the Dual Play feature allows opponents playing multiplayer games to simultaneously see different images on the same screen* – effectively making split-screen gaming a thing of the past.

LG's Ultra HD TV also features a 2.2 Sound System. Consisting of two 10W speakers and two 15W woofers, the sound system produces a lush audio experience that perfectly complements the extraordinary onscreen visuals; creating a theater-like experience in the home.

At CES 2013, LG will showcase the vibrant neo-pop artwork of Romero Britto on its stunning lineup of Ultra HD TVs in the Ultra HD Gallery Zone. Consistent with LG's Life's Good motto, Britto's uplifting paintings are visual expressions of pure happiness and hope for humanity. LG's next-generation picture technology conveys the artist's dynamic vision with complete fidelity. The Ultra HD Content Zone will show CES visitors just how serious LG is about securing top quality, next- generation "4K" content. The company has already formed a 4K content agreement with Korea's top broadcaster, KBS (Korea Broadcasting System) and is actively initiating relationships with other global content providers.
