According to the report Global EV Outlook 2021, sales of electric vehicles (EV) around the world grew 41 percent in 2019 and despite the downturn in overall car sales in 2020 due to the pandemic, EV sales still managed to increase 4.6 percent in 2020. It’s this USD 120 billion industry that LG had in mind when it launched its Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company in 2013 to target the growing trend of electrified vehicles. Now eight years on, LG is seeing a very bright future for its EV-focused business unit, reporting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.2 percent in period covering 2019 to 2020.

      Advanced IVI System Boasts Pillar to Pillar
      Touch Display for Seamless, Intuitive User Experience

      SEOUL, Jan. 12, 2022 — LG Electronics’ (LG) newest premium in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system will be a central feature in the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS EV sedan, the Pillar to Pillar (P2P) display built into the MBUX Hyperscreen that stretches across the entire width of the dashboard. With its unique interior concept and revolutionary human-machine interface, the first luxury electric vehicle from Mercedes-Benz AG highlights the futuristic trends in electric vehicle design and points to an exciting vision for future mobility.
      First introduced by Mercedes-Benz at AG CES 2021, the MBUX Hyperscreen consists of three screens including LCD display, ICD (Instrument Cluster Display) and two OLED displays, CID (Central Information Display) and CDD (Co-Driver Display) under a bonded glass cover to give the appearance of a single, continuous display. The use of advanced plastic OLED (P-OLED) display technology enables the infotainment system in the Mercedes-Benz EQS EV to deliver clear, sharp images and text and slim bezels with no physical knobs means occupants get an intuitive touch interface with refined haptics for a user experience (UX) with minimal learning curve.
      LG’s IVI system was specifically designed to meet the needs of Mercedes-Benz AG with the curved, panoramic form factor required by the ultra-sleek sedan. LG’s in-house Production Engineering Research Institute, tasked with providing in-house expertise for equipment and material components as well as advanced production techniques, developed the core technologies implemented in the display: Curved Glass Forming, Surface Treatment and Curved Display Bonding.
      Working closely together, LG and Mercedes-Benz AG engineers are taking in-vehicle displays such as instrument panels and navigation systems to a new level, providing drivers and passengers with greater convenience and control of their on-road experience. The visually-pleasing IVI system in the Mercedes-Benz EQS EV not only raises the bar for ease-of-use but also safety, featuring new technologies that perform well above minimum standards for head-on and collisions.
      “It’s an honor and a privilege to be able to work in close collaboration with a trusted partner such as Mercedes-Benz AG,” said Eun Seok-hyun, president of the LG Vehicle component Solutions Company. “Being named a valued supplier of automotive displays by Mercedes-Benz AG last year gives us immense pride in knowing that the partnership is showing great results.”
      As an innovative partner for future mobility, LG Electronics’ Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company is working with global automakers such as Mercedes-Benz AG to become a leading developer of connectivity, infotainment and ADAS solutions to deliver differentiated in-vehicle experiences. LG is committed to diversifying its portfolio to further strengthen its capabilities with acquisitions including automotive lighting and headlight systems provider ZKW Group and software cybersecurity company Cybellum as well as the joint venture, LG-Magna e-Powertrain.

      My LG TV works great with terrestrial TV (I have no sound bar) but when I stream content from, say NowTV, iPlayer, etc, particularly films, the background sounds and music are louder than the speech, making the viewing experience quite frustrating.
      Is there something I can do to improve this?  I am already on Clear Speech in the settings.  I don't mind if it's a sound bar or audio streamer I need to get, but I want to know why it only affects streamed content and what I can do about it?
      Many thanks in advance for your help forumites!

      Presenting Solutions for a More Inclusive, Sustainable, Connected Future
       
      LAS VEGAS, Jan. 2, 2022 — At CES 2022, LG Electronics (LG) is presenting its vision for an enhanced lifestyle and a better future for all. Hosted by LG CEO William Cho, LG World Premiere will introduce the company’s diverse innovations for the new year and detailed its continuing efforts to create a more inclusive user experience and sustainable tomorrow. LG’s theme for CES 2022, The Better Life You Deserve, emphasizes LG’s ultimate goal to elevate all aspects of daily life though technological and design innovation. This vision is brought to life through three short films: A Better Life for You, A Better Life for All and A Better Life Tomorrow.
      A Better Life for You: Creating Value for Every Lifestyle
      LG’s concept of the upgradable appliance is the focus of the first short film, A Better Life for You. With enhanced abilities to learn and evolve to better meet the needs of users’ individual lifestyles, LG’s upgraded ThinQ platform empowers compatible products with even more features to deliver additional conveniences in 2022. A Better Life for You shows how advancements in LG’s entertainment solutions are delivering a more personalized, interactive experience to viewers enjoying content on larger screens at home.
      Audiences will be introduced to LG StanbyME, a wireless private mobile wireless display that goes anywhere in the house to deliver the ultimate viewing experience of a traditional TV. Also making their worldwide debut, LG PuriCare AeroTower is an all-in-one home air care solution designed to deliver the benefits of an air purifier, fan and heater while the LG tiiun indoor gardening appliance offers a simple, clean and reliable way to grow healthy greens all year round.
      A Better Life for All: More Sustainable, More Inclusive
      LG’s commitment to reducing its environmental impact and making its business more sustainable is the focus of A Better Life for All. Energy saving innovations built into InstaView® refrigerator and its “knock twice to see inside” transparent door, the increased use of recycled materials in packaging materials of LG Soundbar and the reduction of plastic components in LG OLED TVs all point to LG’s commitment to finding solutions that are better for people and the planet. Beyond 2022, LG expects to introduce more than 600,000 tons of recycled plastic into its manufacturing processes and increase the recovery of electronic waste to eight million tons by 2030.
      Inclusiveness is also key to LG’s growth as a brand and toward this goal, LG is committed to investing in Accessibility Advisory Councils across different markets. Councils are comprised of accessibility experts and those living with disabilities and play a critical role in advising LG as it develops products with more inclusive user experience in mind, such as voice commands and Braille labeling.
      To encourage innovation in the areas of sustainability and inclusivity in 2022, LG is establishing the LIFE’S GOOD AWARD focusing on Innovation for Earth and Innovation for All to solicit ideas to minimize the impact of human activities on the environment and make LG products more accessible and user-friendly. Up to USD 1 million will be awarded to winning participants, more details to be announced in the year ahead.
      A Better Life Tomorrow: Blueprint for the Future
      The third and final short feature focuses on the future and LG’s role in turning the stuff of science fiction into reality, with the company’s AI-powered CLOi door-to-door delivery robot being readied to roll into service. Audiences are also treated to a behind the scenes look as LG’s virtual artist rehearses for her upcoming music video.
      Also getting the spotlight is LG OMNIPOD, a mobility concept solution that blurs the distinction between home and car. Expanding upon the automotive solutions presented in LG’s previous at CES 2020, LG OMNIPOD is an on-the-road extension of one’s personal living space. Designed to function as a home office, an entertainment center or even a lounge, LG OMNIPOD offers a look at how a busy individual might be able to get more done in a future where working remotely doesn’t mean having to work from home.
      Located inside the main entrance of Central Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center, LG’s on-site exhibit promises to offer both physical and online visitors an engaging and interactive experience through AR and VR technologies.
      LG’s Home Entertainment showcase will be featured in LG Virtual Studio in three individual zones: LG OLED on Metaverse, Virtual Showroom and LG OLED Art. All three zones allow visitors to discover and experience the company’s latest products in compelling, interactive ways. LG’s new home appliances will be featured in the virtual exhibition halls aptly named LG Home, LG Home by Objet Collection and LG ThinQ. LG Home is a virtual living space where visitors can explore the company’s latest appliances including a new washer-dryer set, PuriCare AeroTower and LG tiiun. In LG Home by Objet Collection, visitors can curate their own space by choosing the wallpaper, flooring and other interior design elements to harmonize with the customizable appliances in LG’s premium lifestyle collection. LG ThinQ gives visitors a “tour” of all the features and functions of LG’s smart ecosystem all accessible through the upgraded LG ThinQ app.

      Hi, A couple of issues with the new TV:
      When using the magic remote that came with the TV, the mute function (mainly to silence commercials) only lasts for about 45 seconds;
      also there is a constant sound drop out every couple of minutes, it only lasts for a second but is annoying.
      The TV has the latest software
      I am using external speakers (Kef LS 50 wireless 2) connected via eARC HDMI cable (Audioquest),
      Simplink in ON.
      Wondering if anyone has these issues with either LG or Kef
      Thanks
      Graham
