Electronics and appliances manufacturer LG Electronics Malaysia's new smart home showcase event of smart products and includes the world's first curved OLED TV.
"This product showcase [themed 'With LG, It's All Possible,] allows LG to demonstrate our continuous commitment to consumers that when it comes to innovation, smart technologies and stylish design, LG is incomparable," said LG Electronics Malaysia managing director, David Oh, at the opening of the event.
"This [event] also underlines LG's distinct leadership in display technology with the introduction of the world's first LG Curved OLED TV, which has set a whole new benchmark in viewing experience," said Oh. In addition to the Curved OLED TV, we are also introducing the Ultra HDTV, the smart TV operating system, webOS as well as LG's home appliances product line-up."
He said the Curved OLED TV screen represented "the most sophisticated invention yet in curved display technology to naturally meet the human vision range."
"The optimal form for any display provides equal distance from all parts of the screen to the eyes with the same apparent size whether they appear in the centre of the screen or off to the side," Oh said. ."At 55-inch, the LG Curved OLED TV provides perfect immersion into images as if they are really there instead of being in a flat two-dimensional plane."
"With a solid foundation in R&D and the integration of advanced and innovative technologies, we are confident the multi-award winning LG Curved OLED TV will raise the bar for an immersive viewing experience," he said. ."LG will continue to leverage its technological and design expertise to drive the advancement of television into the next generation."
"The new LG Ultra HD TVs offer an exceptional level of picture quality with a resolution rated at four times higher than Full HD and eight times higher than standard HD," Oh added. "With a resolution of 8.3 Megapixel, LG Ultra HD TVs are able to deliver incredibly vivid and crisp pictures even when viewed from close distances. The new LG Ultra HD TV can also transform ordinary picture quality to Ultra HD-like quality - thanks to an innovative feature known as Ultra HD Resolution Upscaler."
He added that webOS allowed consumers to set up, search and view content. "Connecting to other devices is also simplified thanks to webOS. The core features of webOS, which includes Simple Switching, Simple Discovery and Simple Connection, have also attained recognition from Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and Intertek."
