LG TVs are a prime example.

Today, TVs are no longer simple entertainment devices, but an important part of people’s everyday lives. As televisions have become a centerpiece of our living rooms, consumers are looking for products that can serve as an important element of home décor. With its commitment to offering consumers a beautiful viewing experience that fits their lives, LG Electronics Home Entertainment, a major player in the global flat panel display market, has worked hard to develop products that not only deliver top-of-the-line technology, but add stylish design to every home. LG TVs are a prime example.
LG’s new brand identity – Advanced Technology Beautifully Hidden – demonstrates its pledge to becoming the leader in home entertainment devices. The company has invested a great deal of time and effort into establishing a single global brand under the theme “Life’s Good.” The company’s ultimate objective is providing consumers with a beautiful viewing experience that fits their lives, enhances consumers’ understanding of LG and differentiates the company’s products accordingly. This new direction will enhance the overall brand identity of LG and use the company’s positioning to create a more emotional link with consumers.
“We are strong believers in the emotional connection between our customers and our products,” said Kwan-sup (KS) Lee, Vice President of LG Home Entertainment Brand Marketing Team. “Our goal has always been to provide the finest possible TV viewing experience in the home entertainment market. It is with this principle that we announce our brand promise of ‘Advanced Technology Beautifully Hidden’ at CES 2009.”
Consumer insight is essential to the product development process at LG. The company has placed special emphasis on creating products that fit perfectly into people’s lives through the fusion of smart technology and stylish design. Exceptional picture quality and easy-to-use features make this a reality for customers. This year in particular, LG is launching a series of new products which embody the TV division’s promise of an “Advanced Technology Beautifully Hidden,” making 2009 a defining year for the company.
LG has mastered the perfect harmony of design and technology with its 2009 models. Inside the slim 24.8 mm screen of the LHX LCD TV, part of the LH90 series, TruMotion 240Hz and LED backlighting technology work together to deliver a revolutionary 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, for a clearer and more natural picture. Chrome and glass come together to create the sleek, smoky design of an LCD TV with 1080p Full HD. Its built-in wireless receiver eliminates the mess of tangled cables, leaving a clean, uncluttered home theatre environment.
Intelligent Sensor Technology, incorporated into all 2009 models of LG TVs, reduces power consumption by as much as 73 percent, while producing a picture which minimizes eye strain during extended viewing. The LG LH30, in particular, uses 80 percent less power than conventional models, better than any other LCD on the market. Its narrow bezel not only looks great, but eliminates distractions, keeping the viewer’s focus on the screen.
“Our job is to offer TVs that are designed around the people who will be watching them,” said KS Lee. “That is why we combine superb picture quality, captivating design and intuitive features to create a truly unique and pleasant viewing experience.”
LG is a leading lifestyle company, improving the lives of consumers around the world. As the technology divide among market players shrinks, companies are not looking solely for a hi-tech advantage, but something extra that connects with consumers on an emotional level.
“Our new brand identity, ‘Advanced Technology Beautifully Hidden,’ reflects the very soul of the company: one that is honest, genuine, caring and professional, offering something that every customer will feel when they purchase an LG product,” added Simon Kang, CEO and President of LG Home Entertainment Company.
