SEOUL, Dec. 19, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) unveils its 2024 soundbar lineup, including the S95TR, SG10TY and S70TY models. Crafted to seamlessly complement LG TVs, these soundbars promise an elevated home cinema experience through their robust sound quality, well-rounded features and sophisticated designs.

Creating an enhanced synergy between the soundbar and TV, the elevated audio quality of LG’s newest soundbar models enriches the home entertainment experience with a heightened sense of immersion and greater convenience. When paired with WOW Orchestra, the soundbar and LG TV harness the full potential of their audio channels, creating an unrivaled audio experience with an enlarged soundstage and improved depth and height. The ideal choice for a surround sound experience, LG’s new soundbars deliver the superior quality of Dolby Atmos, driven by the advanced technology of DTS:X.

WOWCAST takes audio excellence a step further, allowing the S95TR and SG10TY models to connect wirelessly to LG TVs, ensuring superior sound without any compromise, even when playing Dolby Atmos audio. All three new soundbar models feature the WOW interface, an intuitive and user-friendly method to effortlessly manage soundbar settings and share sound modes with the TV.

At the forefront of LG’s new soundbar lineup is the premium S95TR model, delivering an impressive 810W output and captivating surround sound through its 15 channels. The S95TR boasts five up-firing channels, including the industry’s first center up-firing speaker, creating an unparalleled three-dimensional audio experience with enhanced clarity and an expanded soundstage. Moreover, the angle of the center up-firing speaker ensures a seamless audio-visual experience with precise elevation to the TV screen’s level.

The S95TR features improved tweeters for clear and precise audio, while also incorporating a passive radiator to enrich bass sounds and optimize the overall balance between the soundbar and the subwoofer. Notably, viewing quality is further strengthened in the S95TR model, designed with a matte color palette, materials and finish to effectively reduce reflections.

The SG10TY, another new LG soundbar, serves as the perfect audio and visual companion to LG’s premium OLED TVs. WOW Orchestra, WOW Interface, and WOWCAST enable the SG10TY model to seamlessly integrate with LG OLED TVs, completing the viewing experience for a greater sense of immersion. Remarkably, connecting WOWCAST to the SG10TY model and an LG premium OLED TV creates a wireless home entertainment experience with no visible cables between the screen and the soundbar. This Wi-Fi enabled soundbar provides a flawless listening experience with a high-fidelity audio quality for listeners to enjoy their favorite tracks on music streaming platforms including Tidal Connect and Spotify Connect. The thoughtful design of the SG10TY flawlessly aligns with the width and frame colors of LG OLED TVs, resulting in an impeccable visual match when paired with an ultra-thin OLED TV.

LG will also roll out the S70TY soundbar model, ideal for LG QNED TVs with its simple and compact design. This model also features the industry’s first center up-firing speaker, providing sharpened voice clarity. The angled design ensures harmonious audio and visual in alignment with the TV screen’s level.

A dedicated bracket for the S70TY model* allows users to place the soundbar directly beneath the QNED TV for a refined appearance. This bracket provides a convenient solution for direct attachment, eliminating the need to drill holes in the wall during installation. The bracket allows customizable wall-mounting of the S70TY soundbar at various heights or locations, guaranteeing an aesthetically ideal setup, great convenience and an optimal sound experience.

LG Triple Level Spatial Sound technology applies channel analysis through a 3D engine to mesmerize listeners with lifelike sound and a compelling sense of space. What’s more, LG AI Room Calibration – a feature praised by both consumers and experts for its audio enhancement – rapidly analyzes the environment of a room and adjusts the settings, enhancing the audio to harmonize with the room’s acoustics. New for 2024, the AI Room Calibration extends its capability to calibrate the audio of rear surround speakers, expanding audio immersion and offering more flexibility for installation.

In 2024, LG also plans to introduce new editions of speakers and earbuds to the global market. Despite its compact design, the most recent XO2 model offers the authentic, omnidirectional audio of the LG XBOOM 360 speaker. Featuring a distinctive conical-cylindrical design, it radiates sound in all directions, ensuring consistent, high-quality audio enjoyment for everyone in the listening space. Its compact dimensions, along with 20-hour battery life and IP55 rating, increase its portability and versatility. The most recent XBOOM 360 speaker boasts unique 360-degree mood lighting using audio reflectors, presenting a new lighting design that emanates a sense of openness and diffusion.

LG TONE Free earbuds continue to be ideal for an on-the-go option with user-centric features and a comfortable fit. The latest T90S model offers balanced sound, improved Dolby Head Tracking and refined Adaptive ANC. Additionally, the T90S supports Plug & Wireless, allowing users to enjoy their favorite shows, movies and music on non-Bluetooth devices by using the charging case as a Bluetooth transmitter.

“LG has always been committed to delivering unmatched audio-visual experiences with superior quality, all to bring a better life to our valued customers,” said Lee Jeong-seok, head of LG Home Entertainment Company’s audio business. “We remain dedicated to providing immersive home entertainment experiences through LG’s premium soundbar products, ensuring our customers enjoy the very best with further enhanced surround sound optimized for LG OLED TVs and LG QNED TVs.”

LG’s latest innovations and technologies for home entertainment will be on show during CES 2024 from January 9-12 at the company’s booth (#16008, Central Hall, Las Vegas Convention Center). To keep up with all of LG’s exciting announcements at CES, follow #LGCES2024 on social media.

      Hi, I hope someone can help. I recently bought this TV but can’t find the Art Gallery app that is supposed to be part of the Home Screen.  I have searched in apps but only third party art gallery style apps show. What am I missing here?
      Thanks

      With the stage set for an action-packed summer of sports, LG’s latest lineup of TVs and soundbars are here to bring every world-class play to life. To curate the most authentic spectator experience at home, LG is combining breathtaking visuals with mesmerizing audio, ensuring that every game-defining moment or demonstration of athletic brilliance can be viewed in all its glory.
      As sport broadcasts in 4K resolution become more available, LG TVs are set to deliver the vibrant colors and lifelike clarity that fully immerse spectators in the unmistakable tension of a knockout competition this summer. Pairing 4K images with an ultra-large LG TV screen allows sports fans to fully engage with every crucial moment and celebration. From capturing the game-winning action to faithfully depicting the stadium’s energetic atmosphere, this powerful combination puts the viewer into the thick of the action with an unrivalled level of realism.
      Powered by the α (Alpha) AI processor, which optimizes picture and audio quality, every detail of the game, down to each blade of grass and chant of the crowd, is presented with sharp and vivid clarity. The latest cutting-edge Alpha AI processors developed by LG also feature AI Super Upscaling1 with precise pixel-level image analysis, revealing the details and depth in the scene. Even when a broadcast is not in 4K, AI Super Upscaling intelligently enhances the resolution of the incoming signal to transform it into detailed 4K images. Using advanced algorithms to increase pixel density, LG TVs ensure that every shot on goal and thrilling play is displayed with clarity, so not a single moment is missed.
      For tailored viewing experiences, LG TVs offer several versatile settings such as Sports Mode, which adds greater clarity to the players’ movements and expressions. Another aspect that sets LG TVs apart is the ability to render fast-paced games with precision. TruMotion technology, which offers five different options, helps boost the clarity of fast movements such as a pass, shot or dunk. The LG OLED evo M, G and C series have all been VESA certified with a ClearMR 9000 rating, meaning they boast 85 to 95 times more clear pixels than blurry ones.
      The LG OLED and QNED TVs have wide viewing angles that let viewers share those ‘where were you?’ sports moments with family and friends, who can watch from practically anywhere in the room. The ultimate sports viewing experience is attainable through LG OLED’s self-lit pixels that emit light in all directions, or QNED’s Quantum Dot and NanoCell color technologies which deliver crisp, vivid pictures from every angle.
      To cater to the unique needs and preferences of every sports fanatic, LG OLED TVs come in various sizes. For larger rooms, the ideal option could be the ultra-large 97-inch model which places them at the heart of every play and celebration. For smaller rooms, LG OLED TV models start at 42 inches to let viewers watch the big game without sacrificing image clarity or detail. LG’s newest QNED TVs are available from 43 to 98 inches, so there’s something for every type of fan.
      LG’s convenient Sports Portal2 has been introduced as a hub for sports channels, live content, match schedules, scores and more. This new feature lets viewers use keywords to search the web and offers curated lists of major sports leagues and apps to personalize the sports entertainment experience.
      LG TVs’ Multi-View feature, powered by the Alpha 11 processor, divides the screen into four sections so that users can watch four different sources of content at once. This advanced feature delivers unmatched flexibility on top of highly immersive sports viewing experiences.
      The latest Alpha processor also uses AI to optimize the audio experience. For example, AI Sound Pro enriches sound by utilizing the virtual 11.1.2 surround sound from the TV’s built-in speaker system, effectively capturing the stadium’s distinctive ambiance and injecting it into the living room.
      LG’s OLED and QNED TVs effortlessly pair with LG’s compatible soundbars through WOWCAST Built-in.3 Notably, WOW Orchestra creates three-dimensional audio with the TV’s built-in speakers and separate soundbar working in harmony to unify sounds and envelope viewers with dynamic soundscapes, making it feel like they’re in the stadium themselves.
      Geared up with a center up-firing speaker and AI-powered tuning, LG soundbars harness the power of Dolby Atmos to transform the home into a stadium of spectators. Dolby Atmos provides immersive audio experiences from the crisp snap of a ball being kicked to the thunderous applause cascading around viewers. The added height channel vividly captures the movement of players and the roar of the crowd, with sound emitting from multiple directions to achieve a new level of realism. Timely, as some sporting events this summer will be broadcast in 5.1.4 immersive audio, creating a dome of surround sound for greater spatial realism.
      LG soundbars’ center up-firing speaker also delivers clear dialogue, so viewers can catch the commentator’s every word. Combined with LG’s Triple Level Spatial Sound Technology, the three-dimensional sound experience is further enhanced by utilizing multiple audio channels and height effects to add a virtual mid-layer. This helps fans feel like they are almost beside the athletes, hearing the subtlest details across the auditory landscape.

      When the game is over, but friends want to keep the excitement alive, LG TVs and soundbars can deliver captivating visuals and powerful sounds for movie night. With Dolby Vision, LG TVs vividly elevate movies with their vibrant colors and sharp details, delivering cinematic immersion in the comfort of home. When paired with LG Dolby Atmos soundbars, the audio experience envelopes viewers in rich, dynamic soundscapes that heighten the realism of every scene. For the avid gamer, LG TVs boast high-quality displays and gamer-centric features that ensure compelling graphics and immersive audio for dynamic, breathtaking gaming experiences.

      SAN FRANCISCO, July 16, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) has opened registration for the fourth annual LG NOVA InnoFest, taking place on September 25-26, at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. Hosted by LG NOVA, LG Electronics’ North America Innovation Center, the two-day event will bring together a cross-section of business leaders, innovators and investors across various industries to collaborate on solutions for a better future. This year’s event theme, “Lighting the Halo of Innovation” was designated to inspire attendees to focus on creating change and impact through co-creation and collaboration on bold ideas and businesses.
      The event brings back its annual Startup Pitch Competition, where 10 selected startups will compete to win cash prizes, an audience with executive judges and recognition on stage. In this competition, LG is looking for bold startups with great potential, working on innovative ideas that can lead to transformative change in their markets.
      LG Electronics’ sister company LG Chem is co-sponsoring this year’s startup pitch competition, adding a new Life Sciences category alongside CleanTech, HealthTech, AI, Smart Life and Open Innovation.

Today, innovation is being driven by a collaborative ecosystem. This interconnected approach, involving startups, corporations, academia and venture capitalists can result in groundbreaking solutions. Innofest seeks to illustrate the capabilities of this model, bringing together startups, investors and members of the innovation community to exchange ideas, encourage, support and discuss how they can all work together to spur “innovation for a better life.”
      “Today the responsibility for innovation no longer sits solely with individual companies; collaboration is critical,” said Dr. Sokwoo Rhee, corporate executive vice president for Innovation at LG Electronics and head of LG NOVA. “Through InnoFest, we are bringing together the entire innovation ecosystem, from corporations to growing startups, to discuss creative and cutting-edge ideas that have the potential to shape our future.”
      Last year’s gathering brought 90 industry-leading speakers together for 28 sessions focused on topics such as women in tech; balancing growth, profitability and impact; as well as diversity in tech. The event enabled people to join in the discussions on solutions to challenges in these key areas within the innovation community.
      This year, according to Rhee, “InnoFest is boldly reimagining its program to be more interactive and engaging through a non-traditional conference format, emphasizing meaningful connections and inspiring conversations.” Attendees can look forward to influential speakers and keynotes, select curated panels and more dynamic discussion-based sessions.
      “At LG, we believe in the power of optimism and innovation to change the world,” said Rhee, who invited startups to join LG at InnoFest 2024, “as we strive to create a brighter future together.”
