LG Adds New Selections to its 2015 TV Line-up

SINGAPORE, JUNE 19, 2015 LG Electronics (LG) has added new television models to its suite of entertainment solutions. The SUPER UHD TV (79UF950T); and UHD TVs (43,49UF690T, 70,79UF770T and 55,65UF870T) will join their predecessors in creating a spellbinding viewing experience for users.

 

SUPER UHD TV – Super Color Enhancement  

Joining LG’s line-up is 79UF950T, a SUPER UHD TV which is backed by the ColorPrime Technology. The ColorPrime technology, ULTRA Luminance, 4K In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel and a SUPER Mastering Engine are the salient features. 79UF950T provides a total immersion experience, brings sophistication to the home and boasts convenience-enhancing smart functions.

 

LG’s ColorPrime technology magnifies the range of colors that can be displayed on screen. It is capable of rendering a wider range of hues and shades, thereby creating greater image depth and realism. The ULTRA Luminance technology improves the extended expression range of brightness with higher peaks and enhanced contrast ratio. Equipped with LG’s 4K IPS panel, the 79UF950T can render detailed images at extremely wide viewing angles. What’s more, the SUPER Mastering Engine optimizes the settings of the TV to boost picture quality to premium, cinema-like levels.

 

Buoyed by SUPER Design features, the 79UF950T is designed to be compact and beautiful with a razor-thin, 8.5mm ULTRA Slim display. The TV is supported by the Auditorium Stand, which doubles up as a sound reflector to centralize the sound output.

 

For the SUPER UHD TV lineup, LG has once again teamed up with harman/kardon. The 79UF950T imparts deep and rich sound quality that incorporates 2.1 Ch, 35W speakers and ULTRA Surround system. The frontal-oriented Speaker creates even greater sound authenticity by firing the sound forward towards the viewer. LG’s Smart Sound Mode then automatically selects optimal sound settings to clarify and crystallize individual sound characteristics.

 

“The 79UF950T series promises a stunning 4K viewing experience that is sure to impress even the most discerning customer. With this flagship product, LG can continue to define its brand as synonymous with life-like picture quality, sophisticated design and nifty smart features,” said Scott Jung, Managing Director of LG Electronics Singapore.

 

ULTRA HD TVs – The Next Generation of TV Resolution

The new TV models will also include UF690T (43” and 49”); UF770T (70” and 79”); and UG 870T (55” and 65”). These LED TVs achieve superior image quality through LG’s True 4K Engine Pro. True 4K Engine Pro eliminates visual errors and can upscale lower-resolution content into near-4K quality. The models also boast the built-in 4K HEVC 60p decoder. The decoder allows these TVs to play 4K or UHD quality videos as intended due to its support of higher frame rates without the need for upscaling compared to normal TVs.

Both the UF690T and UG870T range come equipped with 4K In-plane Switching (IPS). The 4K IPS provides consistent contrast, true-to-life colors and a wide viewing angle.

 

LG’s TVs also deliver incredible audio through a built-in 2.0 channel, 20W sound system. Incorporating LG’s ULTRA Surround concept and developed in partnership with harman/kardon, the speakers produce a powerful and rich audio experience that increases its wow factor, especially for audiophiles.

 

Enhanced User Experience via webOS 2.0

All of LG’s 2015 4K OLED TVs, Super UHD TV and Smart UHD TVs feature webOS 2.0, the latest version of LG’s advanced smart TV platform. In addition to being faster, webOS 2.0 delivers a simpler, easier and more intuitive experience with an enhanced user interface and a raft of impressive features. The platform takes simplicity and convenience to a whole new level with reduced boot time and also allows users to optimize menus on the Launcher Bar, making it easier than ever to add and delete favorite contents.
