SEOUL, May 17, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) has announced the launch of the LG CreateBoard series of digital whiteboard solutions (models 86TR3DK, 75TR3DK, 65TR3DK and 55TR3DK) for educational environments. Ideal for digital classrooms, LG CreateBoard boasts a 40-point1 multi-touch screen that provides smooth, interactive writing and drawing experiences.

The versatile, new products facilitate fun, interactive learning experiences and are ideal for learning games, collaborative activities and much more.
Among the many convenient features for educators offered by LG’s new learning displays are QR access and Smart Viewing.

Meanwhile, the Smart Viewing feature makes it possible to display two or more materials on screen, either in separate windows or overlaid in picture-in-picture mode3. This function helps students better understand instructions and learning content by allowing them to view multiple documents, videos or other materials simultaneously.
Suitable for digitalized learning spaces, LG CreateBoard solutions come with the LG CreateBoard Lab application, which offers a variety of writing tools that can boost student engagement. Available as an application4, LG CreateBoard Share enables the wireless screensharing of up to 9 screens on LG CreateBoard at the same time. This lets students easily share files from their personal devices and view their work together with the teacher, creating the opportunity for constructive feedback and the sharing of ideas.
A cloud-based device management solution designed for schools and other learning environments, LG ConnectedCare DMS (Device Management System)2 makes it simple to remotely monitor and manage multiple LG CreateBoard displays. LG ConnectedCare DMS has an intuitive-to-use integrated dashboard that gives IT managers the ability to monitor their educational institutions’ LG CreateBoard displays5 and remotely control simple display functions. They can also send alerts to LG CreateBoard to make students and teachers aware of messages or push notifications to remind everyone about upcoming school events.
“LG CreateBoard offers educational professionals and students an engaging, interactive experience and is well suited to today’s digital learning environments and methods,” said Paik Ki-mun, senior vice president and head of the Information Display business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “Leveraging our exceptional display technologies, we will continue to deliver cutting-edge solutions that cater to the evolving needs of the education sector.”

Certification From Respected Bodies Highlights
LG’s Continuing Commitment to Sustainability and a Better Life for All
SEOUL, April 25, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) today announced that its 2023 OLED evo series TVs have acquired Reducing CO21 and Measured CO22 certifications from the Carbon Trust3 and environmental labels4 from Société Générale de Surveillance SA (SGS) for the third consecutive year. The esteemed recognitions point to LG’s ongoing ESG efforts for plastic waste reduction.
The Carbon Trust is a global climate consultancy created to accelerate the move to a ‘Net Zero’ future, while SGS is a leading global testing organization dedicated to certifying environmentally sustainable products. Both institutions inspected the entire product stage from production and delivery to disposal.
Models in the LG OLED evo series boast lighter weight and stronger durability, applying composite fiber material5 and metal. These materials contribute to less plastic use, with the LG OLED evo series TVs requiring only 40 percent of the plastic that is used in LCD TVs of the same screen size. Thanks to these efforts, LG has effectively curbed its plastic use by 20,000 tons this year.
Thanks to the composite fiber material, select models from the latest OLED evo series are around 20 percent lighter than an LCD TV of the same screen size,6 contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions in transit. Additionally, the back cover of LG OLED evo models, QNED TVs and NanoCell TVs released in 2023 are completed with recycled plastic material which uses more than 30 percent of used plastic. With such efforts, it is expected that LG will achieve a waste plastic recycling effect amounting to 3,200 tons yearly, regarding TV products alone.
Additionally, LG OLED TVs are made with fewer components than conventional LCD TVs. The smaller number of parts required for each LG OLED product is a result of the TVs’ unique, self-lit display technology, which removes the need for a separate backlighting structure. A reduced parts count also means fewer resources used per unit, as well as less plastic and e-waste to contend with at the end of the TVs’ operational life.
“The LG OLED evo series are designed to ensure that viewers can enjoy immersive viewing experiences, while reducing impact in all production stages for a greener, healthier environment at the same time,” said Baik Sun-pil, leader of the LG Home Entertainment Company’s Product Development Division. “LG will continue to pursue a broad range of ESG initiatives and responsible practices, as the firm leader of the OLED TV market.”
Since its initial launch in 2013, LG OLED has continuously raised the industry bar, introducing pioneering display technologies such as OLED evo and groundbreaking form factors including the world’s first rollable TV, LG SIGNATURE OLED R, as well as the bendable LG OLED Flex. This year, which marks the 10th anniversary of LG OLED, sees several new additions to LG’s diverse lineup of self-lit TVs, headlined by the stunning models from the 2023 OLED evo series. LG OLED evo series TVs are currently available in 125 countries worldwide.
LG has earned a place in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for 11 consecutive years and has received the ‘Comprehensive A grade’ from the ESG Evaluation and Rating Announcement of Korea ESG Standards Institute (KCGS) for 2 consecutive years.

LG Expands Local Content, Launches Premium Channels for Movie Buffs and
Drama Aficionados, and Delivers Enhanced Cross-Device User Experience
SEOUL, April 17, 2023 — LG Electronics’ (LG) exclusive, free streaming service, LG Channels, has tripled its user base in Europe over the last year. The strong growth reflects the increasing popularity of LG’s premium service and of free ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) in Europe and worldwide. LG Channels was first launched in 2016 in the U.S. and in 2019 in select European countries.
According to LG data as of January 2023, the number of LG Channels users in the 16 European markets where the service is offered grew by a factor of three. This significant boost in active users represents an increase of over 200 percent. Along with this, there has been a noteworthy uptick in viewing time across several content categories, including movies, TV series, music and news.
Industry experts expect the global growth of FAST services and channels to continue with the U.K. and Germany anticipated to be among the biggest FAST markets by 2027.1 To meet the growing demand for FAST, LG will bolster its service with new content – more of which will be made available on the LG Channels mobile app2 – and convenient, new features to enhance viewing pleasure and the user experience.
LG Channels is constantly expanding its content library and is offering an increasing number of local-language channels, spanning diverse categories such as news, lifestyle, TV series, movies and sports. When it comes to sports, thanks to a new partnership with DAZN, LG Channels will feature the new DAZN FAST and newly announced DAZN Rise, the first 24/7 streaming channel dedicated purely to women sports.3 Through a new partnership with Funke Digital, LG Channels now provides access to a variety of FAST channels covering some of the best fiction and entertainment contents, with plenty of films including PLAION’s Netzkino, ranging from action to thriller, comedy and romance.
To give users more options when viewing on-the-go, LG has also expanded content availability on the LG Channels mobile app. In Germany, users can now watch hundreds of hours of content from 50 popular channels, including Auto Motor und Sport, which offers the latest in car testing and wedo TV, where viewers can watch a variety of free content from movies to sports.
Additionally, LG is launching advertising video on demand (AVOD) titles4 in five European countries, with content offered in English, German, Spanish and other languages. These AVOD titles are provided thanks to collaborations with companies like Minerva Pictures, an independent film production and distribution company based in Rome, active in the film and audiovisual market since 1950, LoveTV Channels, which targets niche audiences passionate of themes such as cinema, environment or wine and Shoot for Love, which targets football fans.
What’s more, thanks to the collaboration with ITV Studios, new channels will be added such as Storylands – featuring high-quality, award-winning European drama produced by ITV Studios labels in France, Italy and the Nordics – and Hell’s Kitchen, a program hosted by world-famous Michelin-starred chef, Gordon Ramsay, filled with cutthroat competition and explosive entertainment.
