New SUPER UHD TVs by LG to debut at CES 2016
Over the weekend, LG announced that it will unveil its new LG SUPER UHD line of TVs at CES 2016. The new line of premium 4K Ultra HD LCD/LED TV lineup will feature LG’s “most advanced” LCD/LED picture quality ever, according to the company, and will have expanded color capabilities, advanced picture and sound-enhancing features, including high dynamic range, and LG’s Flat ULTRA Slim design.
The new line of LG SUPER UHD TVs for the U.S. will include four series: the UH9500 (pictured above, ranging from 55- to 86-inch class screen sizes), the UH8500 (with 55- 75-inch screens), and the UH7700 (49- to 65-inch screens). All three series boast advanced ISP displays with features like True Black Panel and Contrast Maximizer for advanced picture quality at wide viewing angles, according to LG. The company explained that True Black Panel is a proprietary technology that minimizes reflections and enhances the contrast ratio for a “more comfortable viewing experience,” while Contrast Maximizer delivers more depth and contrast by separating objects from their backgrounds.
“We’re confident our 2016 HDR-enabled SUPER UHD TV will generate much excitement not only in the industry, but also with consumers in general,” Brian Kwon, President and CEO at LG’s Home Entertainment Company, said in a statement. “We are the only company with a dual strategy focused on both OLED and UHD TV technologies and this is proof that we’re committing to delivering the most advanced picture quality and home entertainment innovations to consumers around the world.”
You might’ve noticed that only three series models were listed after we called to the “four series” a few paragraphs up. About that fourth one: In its statement, LG said that at CES 2016, it will pull the wraps off of its UH9800 series display—the company’s first production-ready 98-inch 8K SUPER UHD TV.
All of the 2016 UHD TVs come with the latest generation of LG’s webOS Smart TV platform. LG said that webOS 3.0 adds advanced features to make finding and switching between the company’s expanded content options—including broadcast TV, streaming services, and external devices—simple and fast. And with enhanced mobile connectivity, remote features, and more content options, LG said its webOS 3.0 makes it “even simpler and more fun than ever for users to find and enjoy the content they want to watch.
All of the LG SUPER UHD TVs with HDR will be on display at the company’s booth (#8204) in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center at CES 2016.
