A variety of OLED TVs will be showcased at CES, including curved-screen and 4K models.
LG has announced plans to show off its growing lineup of OLED displays at CES next week. The comprehensive collection includes 55-inch, 65-inch, and 77-inch curved-screen 4K OLED sets, a curved-screen 55-inch 1080p set, and a flat-screen 55-inch 1080p set.
"All of the exceptional OLED models we're showcasing at CES 2014 offer the ultimate in picture quality and refined, modern aesthetics," said In-kyu Lee, Senior Vice President and head of the TV Division at LG Electronics' Home Entertainment Company. "Driving the evolution of television into the next generation, LG will continue to employ its technological and design expertise to bring impressive OLED TVs to market."
The company's Ultra HD OLED lineup, spearheaded by the impressive 77-inch 77EC9800, all feature curved-screen designs and a resolution of 3840 x 2160, giving them four times the pixels of a traditional HDTV along with the added benefits of OLED technology's superior contrast and black levels. The 77EC9800 also uses LG's Color Refiner to control the color temperature of each pixel on the display, and LG's High Dynamic Range algorithm to manage its infinite contrast ratio. In addition, the set also features Ultra Cinema 3D which promises reduced flicker and cross-talk. Finally, users can easily upscale SD and HD material to 4K thanks to the television's Tru-ULTRA HD Engine Pro.
Joining the 4K models, will be two 55-inch 1080p sets, the curved-screen 55EB9600 and the flat-screen Gallery EA8800. The 55EB9600 is an updated version of last year's 55EA9800, and is constructed of more recyclable materials and fewer parts than that previous model. Meanwhile, the EA8800 also includes a 2.2 channel, 100W Canvas Speaker hidden behind its frame, offering consumers superior audio.
Exact pricing and availability have not been detailed, but all of these models will be on display at LG's booth at CES next week, and the company has reiterated its commitment to OLED manufacturing with the announcement of new production bases in Brazil, Poland, China, Thailand, and Mexico.
