LG INTRODUCES WORLD’S FIRST 8K OLED TV

Recommended Posts

First To Mass Produce Large Screen OLED TVs, LG Poised to Lead Market in Advanced Premium TV Technologies

BERLIN, Aug. 29, 2018 — Already a leader in advancing TV innovation with its OLED TVs, LG Electronics (LG) is introducing the world’s first 8K (7680 x 4320) OLED TV. Previewed at IFA 2018, the 88-inch class 8K LG OLED TV features over 33 million self-emitting pixels to produce the unmatched contrast ratio and true blacks that define OLED TV’s iconic picture quality.

With OLED TV shipments in the market expected to double in 2018 and reach over nine million units by 2022, LG will continue to increase the OLED share in its premium TV portfolio and drive large scale consumer adoption of OLED TVs. While the 8K TV market is still in its infancy, it is expected to grow to more than 5 million units by 2022, and LG is committed to leading the ultra-premium market with its 8K OLED TV technology.

Despite advancements in LCD field, OLED has been often referred to as the “nextgeneration display technology” because it emits its own light, eliminating the need for any kind of backlighting. This allows for state-of-art TVs which redefine both the picture quality and the product design. Not only was LG able to pioneer such technologies, but it was also able to successfully market them.

“LG’s first 8K OLED TV is the pinnacle of technological achievement and the next evolutionary step in display technology,” said Brian Kwon, president of LG Home Entertainment Company. “4K OLED played a major role in reshaping TV industry and LG is confident that 8K OLED will do the same.”

      LGOLED C8 - It powers on, I get a quick “webOS” and then the screen goes black again.  The remote has new batteries.  This is just after getting it out of the bos and the stand attached.  What is going on?

      I have the 2016 LG OLED65E6P purchased 2/19/2017 with the "magic remote" and recently, the remote control has become unreliable.  It worked perfectly until a few weeks ago and I'm not sure what changed. The remote seems to work properly when the TV is first turned on, but later, I have to press a button repeatedly to get any effect.  It's not bad buttons, it's like the buttons only send the signal to the TV intermittently.  The red light at the top of the remote sometimes flashes red, sometimes goes solid red for a few seconds, and sometimes does nothing when I press the button (I couldn't find a description of what the light does).  It's very frustrating.
      I mostly make due by repeatedly pressing the button that turns on the teardrop cursor -- after maybe 10 times it'll come on, and then I can use the cursor to operate the TV until it times out.  So that works, but it's not a good solution because it's hard to get the cursor turned on.
      I put in fresh batteries several times to see if that's the problem -- it made no difference.  Plus the cursor works fine, when I can get it turned on.
      I was also hopeful that a firmware update caused this problem and it will be resolved.
      The remote doesn't seem to require line-of-sight to work.  Does the remote use bluetooth or WiFi?  I sometimes use Bluetooth headphones with the TV and those work fine.
      Has anyone else had this problem with the remote -- and if so, how did you solve it?
      (I do have an extended warranty so in theory I can get a replacement remote -- but I'd rather not spend an hour on the phone if this is a common problem.)

      Hi,
      I am new to WebOS and trying to setup my environment. I followed the same steps mentioned here:
      http://webostv.developer.lge.com/sdk/install-instructions/installing-sdk/
      After completing these steps, I found four new applications installed in my system: webOS TV CLI, webOS TV IDE, Oracle VirtualBox, webOS TV Emulator v3.0.0. Now, when I am trying to run Emulator, nothing is happening. I am using macOS High Sierra.

      Can someone please help me out in this? ☹️
