is wrapping up in London this week with its final show of the year taking place at the renowned Saatchi Gallery before moving on to other regions in 2022. The show, Media Art; Reinterpreted Time, features digitally remastered works from the biggest names in contemporary art given new life by the Royal College of Art. Also on display are a curated selection of diverse works from up-and-coming artists such as Je Baak, Luke Stephenson and Ruofan Chen.

Using LG’s self-lit OLED as a digital canvas, the artists deliver a range of unique perspectives on the concept of time through 20 LG OLED TV models including G1 Series OLED evo, Z1 Series 8K and LG SIGNATURE OLED R rollable TV incorporated throughout the exhibition. The OLED canvases’ immaculate picture quality blur the line between the real and digital worlds, perfectly preserving the artists’ creative intentions.

Part of a new generation pushing the boundaries of fine art, the talented young artists represented at the exhibit are visual innovators whose work encourages audiences to consider new perspectives and reevaluate what they know. Je Baak’s acclaimed video installation series, The Moment & Morpho Luna, comprises data-based works of art he calls “metabio art” that looks at the biological causal relationship between the metaverse space and actual space. Three LG OLED TVs – models 65R1, 65G1 and 88Z1 – serve as the medium through which Je Baak communicates the core concepts of his work. It’s because of OLED’s ability to deliver vibrant colors, infinite contrast and flexibility that Je Baak is able to create a depth of feeling and emotion that is palpable to the beholder.

In An Incomplete Dictionary of Show Birds, noted British photographer Luke Stephenson portrays various species of birds, each capturing a specific moment in time while hinting at the tension that exists between nature and construct in his art. With exceptionally bright, sharp images, the four 77-inch LG G1 Series OLED evo TVs are able to accurately portray the dramatic colors and details that are the hallmarks of Stephenson’s work.

London-based artist Ruofan Chen presents a set of visually-striking pieces that speak to the emotional connection humans have formed with the natural world throughout time. Central to one of her exhibited pieces, the rollable OLED TV stands stoically between precisely-arranged tree branches, juxtaposing technology with life, inviting viewers to interpret the connection between the inorganic and the organic.

Thanks to the involvement of Saatchi Gallery, the exhibition also features representative pieces from some of modern art’s most celebrated practitioners such as Damien Hurst, Yayoi Kusama, Banksy and Ufan Lee. Exposing new detail and nuance to allow viewers to look on the familiar with new eyes, selected works of the artists were digitally remastered by a team of specialists at London’s Royal College of Art, one of the foremost postgraduate art and design universities in the world.

Beyond accurately reproducing the colors and textures of the originals, LG’s OLED TVs reveal new meaning in the remastered works, bringing the themes of time, life, death, infinity and resistance to the fore. It is the unique ability of OLED’s self-lit pixels to recreate the real, while simultaneously revealing elements previously unseen, that has media artists worldwide excited about LG’s next-gen displays.

LG will follow up on Media Art; Reinterpreted Time with a unique visual and spatial experience featuring a number of LG OLED TVs at the Saatchi Gallery. Through a series of successful exhibitions held over the year, the SELF-LIT OLED Art project has succeeded in bringing attention to digital canvases as an important aspect of cutting-edge modern art.

Head to LG’s project to experience more of the world of OLED-inspired artwork.

      Highest Full-Year Revenue in LG Electronics’ History With
       Continuous Growth Based on Strong Fundamentals

      SEOUL, Jan. 27, 2023 — LG Electronics Inc. (LG) today announced full-year 2022 consolidated revenue of KRW 83.5 trillion with operating profit of KRW 3.6 trillion.
      In 2022, LG achieved its highest annual revenue ever – surpassing KRW 80 trillion for the first time in its history – increasing 12.9 percent over 2021, when sales exceeded KRW 70 trillion for the first time. The record sales reflect continuous growth based on strong fundamentals, although full-year profitability was impacted by challenging global economic conditions.
      The company’s revenue growth in 2022 was driven by strong demand for premium home appliances and automotive parts. For the seventh consecutive year, the appliance business unit saw significant year-over-year growth. The turnaround of LG’s Vehicle components Solutions business in 2022 reflected steady improvements in the automotive industry, and this business exceeded 10 percent of LG’s total revenue for the first time.
      The LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company saw another record-setting year with 2022 revenue of KRW 29.9 trillion, an increase of 10.3 percent from the previous year, as a result of company’s premium-focused strategy that includes unique appliances such as LG Styler clothing care systems, all-in-one WashTower laundry centers, and LG InstaView refrigerators with Craft Ice. Full-year 2022 operating profit was KRW 1.1 trillion lower than in the previous year caused by increased marketing investments and higher logistics costs. The business unit plans to consistently pursue its premium-centered strategy by improving competitiveness of premium products as well as strengthening its mass-tier lineup, along with cost structure management to enhance profitability. In addition, the company will accelerate the expansion of smart home ecosystems by expanding upgradable appliance lineups in the overseas markets.
      The LG Home Entertainment Company reported 2022 revenue of KRW 15.7 trillion and operating profit of KRW 5.4 billion. Although lower global TV demand impacted revenue and operating profit versus 2021, the company’s content and services business based on LG’s smart TV platform has grown ten-fold since 2018. As challenging business conditions persist, the company will focus on expanding LG’s smart TV platform to diversify its overall business portfolio and secure future growth engines. Furthermore, the company will maintain its competitive edge by growing the premium TV segment, such as OLED TV and QNED TV, as well as effectively managing marketing expenses.
      The LG Vehicle component Solutions Company increased revenue by 29.1 percent in 2022 from 2021 to KRW 8.6 trillion with a full-year operating profit of KRW 169.6 billion. The business unit’s profitable growth was driven by proactively responding to higher demand from automakers. By year-end 2022, the total value of accumulated orders for auto parts is around KRW 80 trillion, reflecting the company’s position as a leading supplier to the worldwide automotive industry. The company will continue its momentum by strengthening its global supply chain and will work to further increase profitability through efficient cost structure management.
      The LG Business Solutions Company’s 2022 revenue of KRW 6.1 trillion increased 11.2 percent over the previous year driven by continuous recovery of information displays. Full-year operating profit declined, primarily due to lower post-pandemic demand for PCs and monitors. Looking ahead, the company plans to improve competitiveness of PCs and monitors, while driving stable growth in the B2B segment by developing more customized solutions.

      Hi just got a new QNED LG to replace 2021 Nano tv
      the problem is I can’t move my HD channels down to  channels 1 to5.
      the program manager does not have the function to move channels like my old Nano tv which is only a year older.
      is there anyway I can get around this strange function?

      For LG, 2022 was a defining year for its unwavering journey towards sustainability after the company successfully redirected its focus to collaborations for a greater collective impact through its global innovation challenge, the LIFE’S GOOD AWARD.
      Innovators hailing from all four corners of the globe answered LG’s call with creativity, passion and a drive to make sure Life’s Good, with novel solutions that bring much-needed hope of a brighter future for people and the planet. Among the countless game-changing ideas submitted, the best four were selected to be presented at the LIFE’S GOOD AWARD Conference held in January, in what would be the grand finale.

      With innovation at its core, it was only fitting that LG Sciencepark, the company’s immense innovation hub based in Magok (South Korea), was chosen to host the conference. The four finalists joined the judging panel of respected scholars and LG executives to give their final pitches that would determine which award they would be taking home. But this was by no means a closed event, as the public was warmly invited to tune into the conference’s afternoon events.

      The day kicked off with a presentation from each team and the judging panel gave valuable feedback and asked questions based on the solution’s impact, innovation and sustainability. And finally, the moment everyone had waited for; the announcement of who would be receiving what prize at the awards ceremony held later that day.

      Public attendees interested in LG’s latest sustainability efforts were greeted to the park by a special exhibition booth providing an interesting overview of each top-four solution, as well as a look into LG’s most notable products promoting environmental sustainability and accessibility.

      The ‘Dot pad,’ Dot Incorporation’s tactile graphic display, was one of them. Featuring 2,400 braille pins/dots which move up and down to convert information, this device gave visitors the opportunity to experience how the visually impaired ‘see’ the world through their fingertips.

      Next up was Day1Lab’s alternative plastic solution which promotes its vision of a green Earth devoid of all harmful microplastic waste. This exhibit was set up to clearly demonstrate how carbohydrate complex materials degrade naturally in freshwater and earth, as to not harm the planet’s beautiful and diverse ecosystems.

      Similarly, SOLUTUM presented an alternative plastic solution which degrades naturally in freshwater without toxic residue. Attendees were eager to see the eco-friendly material close up, especially as it’s expected to be featured in consumer products soon in partnership with a leading beverage brand.

      Water desalination was the key initiative outlined in NONA Technologies’ exhibit. It’s here where onlookers could discover how a desalination solution that removes minerals from raw water completely changes the outlook of agriculture and water-deprived communities over the world.

      Following this exclusive tour of the winning solutions, everyone gathered for the long-awaited awards ceremony. But before the awards were handed out, a welcoming address by LG, special lectures from presiding professors and speeches from the winning teams were conducted, a perfect example of how businesses, scholars and innovators can come together as one for a better world.

      The curtains closed on the ceremony with a big round of applause for the winners, with Dot Inc. (South Korea), SOLUTUM (Israel), Day1Lab (South Korea) and NONA Technologies (the United States) claiming the Grand Prix, Gold, Silver and Bronze awards, respectively. The jury lauded the four winners’ amazing dedication and visionary solutions.

      Through a relentless drive for innovation and an unwavering commitment to connecting with some of the brightest minds in the world, LG will continue to foster a Better Life for All. Stay tuned to
