The Academy Award winning director is a big fan of OLED technology.
Francis Ford Coppola has announced his support for LG's OLED TV tech. With their perfect blacks and vivid colors, OLED panels are capable of presenting the director's films as they are intended.
"When I first watched Apocalypse Now on LG OLED, I was filled with emotion. Not only because it was so lifelike that I felt like I was back in the director's chair nearly 40 years ago, but because I was finally able to see the film how I always intended it to look," remarked Coppola. "Every scene was so vivid and stunning. Every detail was so perfectly clear and immersive. Many of these details which were originally lost when translated onto screen, were now brought back to all their glory."
LG OLED TVs offer superior black levels, uniformity, and viewing angles over traditional LCD panels. In addition, the company's 2016 lineup of 4K Ultra HD OLED TVs includes models with HDR10 and Dolby Vision support, along with Ultra HD Premium certification.

"LG OLED TV delivers what industry experts and consumers alike have hailed as the best TV picture quality ever right to consumers' living rooms," said David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. "The innovation of OLED TV, along with advancements such as 4K Ultra HD and HDR, is revolutionizing the home entertainment experience and enabling viewers to experience films the way that visionary filmmakers like Francis Ford Coppola meant for them to be seen."
