LG has just announced, perhaps, the most exciting series of OLED TVs to come out this CES. The first touted upgrade comes in the form of an improved processor capable of using Artificial Intelligence to enhance image quality along with a wholly redesigned webOS UX. Said picture quality improvement is made possible by improving every frame’s features, such as contrast, dynamic range, brightness, etc.
During the same time, LG has also announced their latest and greatest in TVs with the OLED Evo. According to LG, featuring their most advanced panel and processor technology, the OLED Evo is set to define the next evolution in OLED technology. The OLED Evo will be capable of brighter, more detailed, and punchier image reproduction than ever before, bolstering the overall refinement and realism in your entertainment media. The LG OLED Evo lineup would comprise three screen sizes, 55″, 65″ and 77″.
However, that is not all. LG has also revealed that the 83″ screen size 8k TV would include their new Alpha 9 Gen 4 AI processor, which is faster than ever before and can automatically enhance the reproduced image. Said enhancement is achieved using Deep Learning enabled object and scene recognition and upscaling to add detail to the picture automatically. The processor would identify the object in an image and segregate the same from the background while processing both individually to make sure that every rendered scene looks so much better. It would also increase the picture quality of a scene by identifying markers such as the context genre, ambient lighting, and scene conditions.
The Alpha 9 Gen 4 processors are also touted to bring upgrades to AI Sound Pro, including two significant improvements. First, the ability to up-mix audio into a virtual 5.1.2 channel using just the TV’s speakers, enhancing the overall immersion of the experience. Second, an Auto Volume Leveling feature deals with the annoyance of non-uniform volume levels when switching from one channel to the other.
Other improvements include a redesigned User Interface that is quicker and more intuitive to use and a refreshed Magic Remote that can include NFC. Inclusion of the NFC feature means that with a simple tap of their NFC enabled smartphones on the remote, users could share screens between the TV and a smartphone or vice versa.
In conclusion, LG’s panel technology is perhaps one of the most advanced and feature-packed globally, widely used by consumers and professionals alike. Featuring LG’s latest and greatest, the OLED Evos appear to be on the right track to becoming an imposing product line, adding to LG’s equally impressive portfolio of success and innovation.
