LG Electronics (LG) today announced that its Ultra HD TV (84LM9600) has been recognized for its incredible picture quality by two globally respected testing and certification bodies; TÜV Rheinland and Underwriters Laboratories (UL). The impressive 84-inch next generation TV has been winning the approval of industry experts, the media, and TV enthusiasts since its launch late last year. LG’s 84LM9600 was the first large-screen Ultra HD TV in the world to be made commercially available.

“The independent certification of our Ultra HD TV’s exceptional picture quality is confirmation of LG’s ability to produce industry leading display technologies,” said Sang-hee Park, Head of LG TV R&D Laboratory. “LG will continue to focus on realizing ‘the best picture quality’ possible. Moving forward, we will ensure that our brand is synonymous with a premium viewing experience.”

TÜV Rheinland, Europe’s most respected testing certification authority, confirmed that LG’s 84-inch model is the first of its kind to have successfully satisfied all of the criteria for the new Ultra HD TV category. TÜV conducted a thorough examination of LG’s product, testing a number of attributes that affect the quality of onscreen images, including brightness deviation, color temperature, color gamut, response time and screen blink.

Meanwhile, the 84LM9600 has received validation from UL, an internationally recognized standards and testing body in the US. UL announced that LG’s Ultra HD TV passed its rigorous picture quality assessment, scoring highly in specific categories related to Ultra HD Picture Quality. With this much sought-after validation, LG’s 84-inch model has confirmed its place as the world’s best Ultra HD TV.

LG’s Ultra HD TV provides an unparalleled viewing experience with its excellent color gamut, and screen brightness that remains consistent from almost any angle. The 84LM9600’s large screen maximizes viewer immersion, while its Ultra HD resolution (3840 x 2160) provides lifelike images which are four times sharper than full HD (1920 x 1080). Additionally, thanks to LG’s Cinema 3D Ultra HD Engine, the TV can also upscale HD content to near Ultra HD picture quality.

LG has also employed an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel to ensure greater color accuracy, less image distortion and a 179 degree horizontal viewing angle. Finally, the 84LM9600’s 2.2 channel sound system compliments the amazing screen with rich sound, making the viewer feel like they are truly inside a state-of-the-art movie theater.

In addition to global certifications, LG’s Ultra HD TV has received a CES 2013 Innovations Award and been called the best Ultra HD TV available by a number of major IT media outlets.
