What’s New with LG Home Entertainment

 

 

Smart home entertainment is on everyone’s lips. Whether you love watching award-winning blockbusters, live sports matches or game late into the night, your TV and audio system has to live up to your expectations.

Ringing in 2020, LG have released some information on their new range of TV and audio technology and products. We’ve got all the updates to share, check them out below.

AI Picture & Sound Processor
Harnessing the power of machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI) enhances the visual and audio experience through processors and programs. Using AI Deep Learning, LG have designed technology that optimises content, including:

– Face Enhancing: the TV’s processor uses Deep Learning algorithms to sharpen the face, making it brighter with more detail.
– AI 8K Upscaling: the TV’s processor enhances the sharpness of images for an improved visual output.
– Text Upscaling: the TV’s processor recognises on-screen text then fine-tunes and sharpens it.
– Auto Genre Selection adjusts the picture mode to suit the genre, such as Cinema, Sports, Standard and Animation.
– AI Sound Pro (Clear Voice) provides clear speech audio.

LG have summarised their ‘Deep Learning’ processes as technology that analyses image quality alongside shape and context to display clearer picture quality.

Best TV for Games, Movies & Sports
There’s something to cater for everyone. Movie fanatics, sports enthusiasts and gamers will love the various new technologies that will change how your favourite content is enjoyed.

LG’s OLED and Nano Cell TVs are best for gaming with top-of-the-line gaming technology including:

– NVIDIA G-Sync (provides smooth, high-quality images and higher refresh rates)
– AMD FreeSync (for a tear free experience)
– 1ms Response Time: where a pixel change that gets displayed on the screen only takes 1 millisecond.
– Less Input Lag: when there’s reduced time between a movement that’s been made on a controller, keyboard or mouse and that movement being displayed on screen.

Watch high-action dramas, sci-fi and nature documentaries and feel like you’re there thanks to the Filmmaker Mode™. The Filmmaker Mode™ disables post-processing effects to maintain the intended image quality. Meanwhile, the new Dolby Vision IQ adjusts brightness to match the room brightness, this is also useful when watching sports – so you can see all the action even if the room is bright from the afternoon sun.

The newly released OLED Motion Pro technology adds a black frame between every other frame which improves motion handling. The only disadvantage is that some of the images may become darker.

Small screen or large screen? When it comes to choosing your next TV size, larger is simply a
no-brainer. 65” screens are the new normal with sales for this size flying out the door. Similarly, 75” TV sales are rapidly growing. Need help deciding what screen size is right for you? Let our TV Viewing Guide point you in the right direction.

– Graphic Upscaling: LG’s Deep Learning systems sharpen and enhance the graphics for an improved picture quality
– Text Upscaling: the TV’s processor recognises on-screen text then fine-tunes and sharpens it.
