LG Begins Roll Out of Impressive 2014 TV Lineup


Alex

Question

SEOUL, KOREA - LG Electronics (LG) today introduced its 2014 TV lineup in Korea, unveiling a total of 68 new models including ULTRA HD TVs in sizes ranging from 49 to 105 inches, its largest collection to date.

Among its new models is LG’s groundbreaking 105-inch Curved ULTRA HD TV in addition to its smaller 65-, 55- and 49-inch curved 4K units. As the first manufacturer to introduce an 84-inch ULTRA HD TV to the world in 2012, LG has consistently upped the ante with first-to-market ULTRA HD and OLED units. New for 2014 is LG’s webOS Smart TV platform, first unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in early January, which the company expects to set a new standard in the smart TV market for its openness and ease-of-use.

“We are extremely confident that our state-of-the-art ULTRA HD and OLED TV models will establish a new benchmark this year,” said Hyun-hwoi Ha, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. “With our strong competitiveness in display technology including ULTRA IPS, CINEMA 3D and the unrivalled simplicity of the webOS Smart TV platform, we are optimistic that in 2014, LG will be the one to watch in the TV industry.”

Just got my hands on LG 42LB670V webOS TV here in Lithuania.

 

All I want to say now is that it's very laggy, glitchy, slow and not very user friendly. Basic Live TV menu is very non-user-friendly, it is much more straightforward on 2012-2014 Netcast TVs. Multitasking is pretty strange, although it works. LG Apps Store doesn't work now, although my Netcast app worked out of the box, so it's probably simulated somehow.

 

My advice - don't rush into buying it now, try it in the store first, you can get disappointed.

The begining of a new OS seem to be hard: no update scheddule, no compatibility information (the LG Magic remote don't work with recent models).

Please LG, bring the source code public, updates and fuctionalities will be much faster available !

Otherwise, give us informations about firmware releases.

      New LG MAGNIT All-in-One Features Sleek Design With a Premium Micro LED
      Screen, Built-in Speaker and Embedded Controller 

      SEOUL, Aug. 10, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) announces the launch of its new Micro LED signage solution, the LG MAGNIT All-in-One (model LAAA). Ideal for corporate meeting rooms, the impressive 136-inch model combines a premium screen featuring LG’s advanced Micro LED technology and a 1.56-millimeter pixel pitch with a built-in controller and speaker. Along with outstanding picture quality, LG MAGNIT All-in-One offers a convenient user experience with the webOS platform, seamless compatibility with AV control systems and easy installation.
      LG’s sophisticated Micro LED display technology delivers deep blacks and vivid colors, making images come to life on the LG MAGNIT All-in-One. The company’s Micro Pixel Pitch technology aids in color clarity and precision, while its LED chip alignment and surface treatment technology enhance white uniformity and reduce color distortion, providing outstanding image fidelity across a wide viewing angle.
      In addition to exceptional Micro LED picture quality, the LG MAGNIT All-in-One provides simple installation. Its integrated controller and built-in speaker reduce the hassle of having to connect and manage multiple cables. The 136-inch panel consists of five units of assembled LED display modules – preconfigured using LG’s ‘gap-reducing’ module alignment process – that can be quickly and securely attached to the frame. Installation can then be completed by connecting the display to power via a single AC cable.
      Facilitating seamless business meetings, the LG MAGNIT All-in-One is a convenient display solution for corporate meeting rooms. With the scroll wheel on the LG Magic Remote, users can effortlessly explore the device’s diverse functionalities, then easily ‘point and click’ to quickly access or activate whatever they need. Additionally, the new MAGNIT All-in-One is compatible with the LG One:Quick Share wireless screen sharing solution and a web-based AV control system that allows for efficient management and integration with a range of AV equipment.
      The attractive, minimalistic design of the LG MAGNIT All-in-One brings a sleek, stylish aesthetic to the meeting room. And for easy access and usability, all interface connections are located on the front of the product, and basic control buttons are situated on the right-hand side of the frame. Furthermore, the new LG MAGNIT All-in-One takes the safety of users and the installation environment into consideration, as demonstrated by passing tests regarding the surface spread of flame and electromagnetic compatibility.*
      “Building on the successful launch of our newest LG MAGNIT solution, we aim to keep expanding and enhancing our All-in-One LED signage lineup,” said Paik Ki-mun, senior vice president and head of the Information Display business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “We are dedicated to developing innovative display solutions that ensure excellent picture quality, simple installation and convenient usability; meeting our customers’ needs and creating value for their businesses.”
      The LG MAGNIT All-in-One will be available in markets worldwide, including Europe, starting this month. For more information about the LG MAGNIT All-in-One, visit

      Featuring Brand-New OLED Models, Expanded Portfolio of Ultra-Lightweight
      LG gram is Designed to Meet the Diverse Needs of Today’s Consumers

      LAS VEGAS, Jan. 3, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) is introducing an expanded LG gram lineup, which offers more diversity than ever thanks to the arrival of the exciting, new gram Ultraslim and gram Style, at CES 2023. LG gram continues to provide both power and portability, packing premium specs into sleek, ultra-lightweight form factors delivering take-anywhere convenience and exceptional user experiences.
      LG gram Ultraslim
      Headlining the LG gram showcase at CES 2023 is the brand-new LG gram Ultraslim (model 15Z90RT), the thinnest gram model yet. A laptop designed for users seeking supreme portability, the Ultraslim has an ultra-light weight of just 998 grams and a depth (when closed) of only 10.99 millimeters; around the same thickness of a smartphone or notepad. Even though it is the most svelte gram in the 2023 lineup, the 15Z90RT still supplies impressive image quality and processing power, packing a 15.6-inch OLED display with Anti-glare Low Reflection (AGLR) coating and Intel®’s 13th Gen Raptor Lake chip with Performance Cores (P-Cores). Further enhancing the excellent portability of the new model is the inclusion of an ultra-compact adapter.1
      LG gram Style
      LG gram Style laptops, offered in 16- and 14-inch versions (models 16Z90RS and 14Z90RS) have been created for people who love to express their unique style wherever they go. Both gram Style models sport an elegant glass design that makes each of the available color options shine and shift dynamically; moving and changing depending on the light and angle. The focus on design continues inside the new grams where a ‘hidden’ haptic touchpad with soft LED backlighting illuminates at the user’s touch.
      Despite the attention to aesthetics, LG gram Style laptops deliver far more than just good looks. Each has a 16:10, OLED Anti-Glare Low Reflection display with a high refresh rate and features an Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake P-Core CPU and a Gen4 NVMe solid-state drive (SSD). Like all other models in the diverse 2023 gram lineup, the 16Z90RS and 14Z90RS support Thunderbolt 4 and HDMI connectivity and offer atmospheric audio with Dolby Atmos, which is new to LG gram this year.
      Along with the new-for-2023 Ultraslim and Style, this year’s lineup features new gram 17, 16, 15 and 14 laptops (models 17Z90R, 16Z90R, 15Z90R and 14Z90R); each providing the brand’s signature combination of strong performance and light, compact design. Great for productivity and entertainment, the latest 17- and 16-inch grams are equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 4GB Laptop GPU, Intel’s 13th Gen Raptor Lake P – Core CPU and a Gen4 NVMe SSD. Each of the new models weighs in at less than 1.45 kilograms – despite having a large battery2 that can handle more than 20 hours of video playback on a single charge3 – and comes with the same conveniently compact adapter included with the gram Ultraslim.
      LG’s newest grams also boast superb picture quality, with all models employing an IPS panel with anti-glare coating. New for this year, variable refresh rate (VRR)4 support will enable LG gram users to enjoy seamless, tear- and stutter-free graphics when gaming, while the arrival of Dolby Atmos will deliver immersive audio that helps bring movies, music and games to life.
      LG gram 2-in-1 and +view for LG gram also welcome upgraded models for 2023. The new 2-in-1, which comes in 16- and 14-inch sizes (models 16T90R and 14T90R), gives users the freedom to switch from laptop to tablet or vice versa, whenever they choose. Along with its 4-way super-slim bezel design and sturdy yet slim aluminum frame, the latest ‘convertible’ gram boasts a suite of pre-installed notetaking and drawing applications optimized for use with the LG Stylus Pen (Wacom AES 2.0). Meanwhile, LG’s portable monitor, +view for LG gram (model 16MR70), lets users double their screen real estate and enjoy easier multitasking wherever they go. Enhanced for the new year, the latest version of LG’s portable screen solution features dual USB Type-C ports, enabling users to connect to two devices simultaneously and enjoy the convenience of two-way power delivery.
      “Welcoming the arrival of the brand-new gram Ultraslim and gram Style, the 2023 LG gram lineup gets even more diverse,” said Seo Young-jae, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “A leading brand in the ultra-lightweight laptop market for the last decade, LG gram will continue to introduce new form factors to meet the changing needs and tastes of consumers worldwide.”
      Visitors to CES 2023 in Las Vegas from January 5-8 can experience the latest LG gram products at LG’s booth (#15501, Las Vegas Convention Center). The new LG gram lineup will be launching globally starting from next month in Korea.5

      Perfect for People on the Move, LG’s Premium Laptops Boost Productivity and Security
      with AI-based Features, While New Portable Monitor Extends the Digital Workspace

      SEOUL, April 26, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) has announced the global launch of its 2022 LG gram lineup of premium laptops. Ideal for a wide variety of users, the new models continue the brand’s legacy of supreme portability with sleek, ultra-light designs while adopting innovative software and the latest hardware to deliver even more power and convenience.
      The 2022 LG gram lineup features seven new models: gram 17 (17Z90Q), gram 16 (16Z90Q), gram 15 (15Z90Q), gram 14 (14Z90Q), gram 2-in-1 (16T90Q and 14T90Q) and the series’ first-ever portable monitor, +view for LG gram (16MQ70). Each new LG gram laptop provides powerful performance backed by a 12th Gen Intel® Core processor. This year’s laptops have also been upgraded to the latest Gen4 NVMe SSD, and employ low-voltage LPDDR5 RAM to achieve a performance boost of around 22 percent compared to 2021 gram models.1 Intel® Evo Platform certified, the 2022 LG grams guarantee excellent battery life, giving users the freedom to work or play, wherever their day takes them.
      LG’s premium laptops are synonymous with superb picture quality, and its newest offerings serve as a strong reminder of why. Featuring 16:10 aspect ratio, WQXGA (2,560 x 1,600) resolution IPS panels,2 the new grams provide sharp, vibrant images with high brightness, 99 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color space, and plenty of screen real estate to meet users’ diverse productivity and entertainment needs. What’s more, LG’s advanced IPS displays are now anti-glare,3 reducing distracting reflections and making it easier for users to see what they’re working on, regardless of ambient light conditions.
      2022 LG gram laptops elevate the user experience with LG Glance by Mirametrix®, an innovative AI-based software solution that enhances security and convenience. LG Glance by Mirametrix® automatically locks the screen if the user steps away from their laptop.4 It also alerts the user and blurs the content they are working on if someone is peeking at the screen from over their shoulder.5 Conveniently, if a separate monitor is connected, the mouse cursor and the window currently being used automatically move to whichever screen the user is looking at. Additionally, this year’s models offer an optimized environment for video conferencing with features such as face log-in, AI-noise cancelling and a built-in Full HD webcam.
      The latest grams remain true to the brand’s core identity, delivering compact, ultra-lightweight designs without sacrificing durability or performance. With their 4-way super-slim bezel design, each model offers an excellent screen-to-body ratio and is rugged enough to meet the U.S. military’s stringent MIL-STD-810G standard. On top of that, all 2022 LG gram products ship in eco-conscious packaging that presents thoughtful reusability after unboxing – cleverly converting to a desk calendar and pencil holder.
      Versatile devices that enable users to switch between laptop and tablet in seconds, the new 16- and 14-inch LG gram 2-in-1 models come with pre-installed drawing and notetaking applications optimized for the LG Stylus Pen (Wacom AES 2.0). With the combination of smoothly integrated stylus support and LG’s AI-based user interface, the latest gram convertibles offer greater work efficiency as well as a responsive and enjoyable writing and sketching experience.
      This year’s gram lineup also welcomes the +view for LG gram, a portable 16-inch monitor with detachable cover that connects via USB-C to extend the digital workspace. The 16MQ70 can be placed next to a laptop in horizontal or vertical orientation,6 and is a perfect match for LG gram 16; combining to provide a seamless look and a 32:10 aspect ratio IPS canvas for advanced multitasking.
      “The 2022 gram series honors the brand’s identity and heritage with supreme portability, outstanding performance and optimized user experiences,” said Seo Young-jae, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “Ideal for dynamic people on the move, LG gram products are designed to maximize productivity no matter where you are or what you’re working on.”
      The global rollout of the 2022 LG gram lineup will start from the second quarter with availability at key markets in North America, Europe and Asia.

      With fit and comfort top priorities for the LG TONE Free lineup, LG collaborated with a leading ergonomic design technology lab to analyze hundreds of subjects’ ears, resulting in Arc Design with an earbud stem 4.4 millimeters shorter than on previous models to create the perfect balance and fit for an active lifestyle.1 And because the FP9 and FP8 are IPX4 rated, both earbuds can be worn without worry during hard workout sessions or in the rain.
      New to LG TONE Free lineup is Headphone Spatial Processing from Meridian Audio which envelops the listener with sound that seems to originate from all directions. Another new enhancement is 3D Sound Stage, which expands the sound stage via spatial up-mixing to bring users more lifelike audio for a more captivating listening experience. With larger, upgraded drivers and diaphragms featuring silicone edging allowing for more flexibility and movement, the new TONE Free models now deliver more powerful bass without compromising clarity or detail.
      With three microphones in each earbud, the new FP9 and FP8 offer a better calling experience by making the user’s voice clearer and with less intrusive ambient noise getting in the way. New Whispering Mode allows for greater call privacy and clarity, allowing users to hold the right earbud close to their mouths as a dedicated microphone, the perfect solution for making and taking calls in environments such as a library or crowded subway.
      Active noise cancelling on both new TONE Free earbuds eliminates low-frequency sounds that can’t be completely blocked by the passive noise cancellation eartips. The microphones on the earbuds listen for ambient noises and neutralize them by producing identical sound waves that are inaudible to the listener, leaving just soundwaves from the music or podcast to enjoy.
      Again with the industry’s only auto-cleaning UVnano charging case to keep the eartips clean to reduce the chance of inner ear infections, the UV-C LED built into the TONE Free cases is tested to reduce bacteria on the earbuds’ speaker mesh by 99.9 percent in just five minutes when charging wired or wirelessly.2 For additional hygiene, both new models also feature medical-grade, hypoallergenic ear gels to reduce the risk of skin irritations in the ear canal.3
      LG’s newest TWS earbuds now deliver greater user convenience with wider compatibility, simpler connectivity and maximum durability. LG FP9 and FP8 can quickly and easily pair with a wide range of devices including Windows PCs and laptops while FP9 with Plug & Wireless enables the charging case to double as a wireless dongle, especially handy on airplanes. By plugging the case into a smartphone, gaming console, or other compatible device via USB-C to AUX cable, users can experience both complete freedom and low-latency sound.4
      For longer enjoyment and extended on-the-go convenience, LG’s new earbuds guarantee exceptional battery life, delivering up to 10 hours of playback time between charges for a total of 24 hours of usage when used with the charging case. And with quick charge, five minutes in the case equates to one full hour of listening, perfect for those times when you forget to charge the night before. For listeners who want wireless charging, LG TONE Free FP8 has that covered.
      Paired with the TONE Free app, LG’s newest earbuds deliver even more capabilities with access to an equalizer, Ambient Sound mode, touch control customization and Find My Earbuds to help locate either earbud when lost or misplaced. The app also features LAB, where users can access special settings such as Whispering Mode and Game Mode.
      The new LG TONE Free FP series will be available starting this month in key markets in a range of sophisticated colors such as Charcoal Black, Pearl White and Haze Gold.
