Sydney, 25 August 2014LG Australia has launched a cracking new TV, recognising the fast growing demand for the Ultra High Definition format. The company’s latest 4K ULTRA HD TV (model UB950T) strikes the perfect combination of high-end tech specs – like the amazing screen resolution and sound designed by harman/kardon® – with streamlined aesthetics and some serious bang-for-your-buck. Available now, the UB950T comes in a 55-inch version at RRP $3,199 and a 65-inch version at RRP $4,499.

The UB950T falls between LG’s premium UB980T ULTRA HD TV1 and the more affordable UB850T model, combining a great mix of features for consumers searching in the $3000-$4500 price range.

 

THE VISION

Representing a quantum leap in TV display technology, LG 4K ULTRA HD TV delivers content at four times the definition of Full HD TV and houses a whopping 8.3 million pixels1. Coupled with LG’s award winning IPS display technology, the UB950T expresses sublimely vibrant colour. What’s that, you say? You don’t have 4K content? Never fear, The LG ULTRA HD Upscaling Engine renders standard definition and HD content closer to ULTRA HD clarity2.

THE SOUND

Designed with harman/kardon®, the inbuilt three-way, 35-watt sound system (4 speakers plus a rear bass woofer) boasts a refined hi-fi quality that might make other flatscreen TVs feel a bit insecure. The integrated TV audio system delivers crisp sound, amazing fidelity, and places viewers squarely at the centre of an immersive TV audio experience. Discreetly built into the TV’s smooth metallic look bezel, the harman/kardon® designed sound system is both exquisitely beautiful whilst being highly functional.

THE SMARTS

LG’s new Smart TV platform, webOS, makes TV simple again. The easy-to-use and cheerful interface embraces the spirit of ‘having it all’. Content can be quickly and easily found on the left-right scrollable Launcher bar. This feature can be accessed while watching broadcast TV, streaming video or while any other content is playing. That means most entertainment on your TV is only two clicks away! Still too much distance between you and your favourite show? Just speak into the Magic Remote and webOS will help you quickly navigate to your desired destination thanks to its advanced voice command3 capability.

WHAT LG HAS TO SAY

“Our consumers are the focus of our ‘Life’s Good’ mission.” said Lambro Skropidis, General Manager Marketing at LG Australia. “Based on feedback from our consumers about the harman/kardon® sound and picture quality of the UB980T – our flagship 4K ULTRA HD TV, we developed the UB950T to be a mid-priced 4K ULTRA HD TV that marries price with stunning features – amazing 4K Ultra HD resolution, vibrant colours, highly refined sound quality and a stylish appeal that’s friendly to interior design.”

 

4K ULTRA HD TV’s are starting to take off and LG is at the vanguard of that movement. We were a leading brand that launched 4K ULTRA HD TV’s in Australia and we’ll continue to launch a diverse range of these advanced TVs at different price points to suit a wider range of new TV buyer budgets. We believe there’s a 4K ULTRA HD TV in our range suitable for every house in Australia.”
