Recommended Posts

Over the past two years, the virtual space has become increasingly important for brands seeking to engage with consumers and spread the word about their latest and greatest offerings. Rather than create an online showroom or virtual exhibition to highlight the virtues of its growing lineup of LG UltraGear™ gaming monitors, LG went for something a little more…explosive.

Fortnite, for those who don’t know, is the globally popular and free-to-play battle royale game developed and published by Epic Games. And it is here, within Fortnite Creative* – the game’s sandbox mode – that LG has launched the ‘UltraCity’ LG UltraGear brand map. The exhilarating new map will soon play host to a special, action-packed competition event. Fortnite users can experience the fun and excitement of LG’s UltraCity by entering island code 7006-5966-2409 in Fortnite’s Creative mode.

LG’s UltraCity map in Fortnite puts players to the test as they battle their opponents for control of the UltraGear Port, Gaming Monitor Factory and UltraGear Brand Lounge. To bring a sense of realism to the map, many buildings and sites in the virtual space are based on actual LG Electronics facilities and locations. Those with eyes sharp enough to capture the carefully hidden LG UltraGear brand slogan – ‘Be the Game Changer’ – and complete certain tasks within the allotted time can earn a special weapon to help defeat their enemies and finish the map in victory.

To celebrate the UltraCity launch and competition, LG is holding a variety of events, including the livestreaming on Twitch of famous ‘Fortniters’ playing their way through the new map. On April 15, Fortnite users can get involved in the action themselves by joining teams led by popular Fortnite influencers from North America and Europe. These battles will be broadcasted live on each influencer’s channel and on LG UltraGear’s official

The UltraCity map in Fortnite is best experienced on one of LG’s premium LG UltraGear gaming monitors. Designed with serious gamers in mind, the brand’s IPS displays are the ‘Right Gear for Victory,’ delivering the gorgeous picture quality, high refresh rates and one millisecond Gray-to-Gray (GTG) response times needed for immersive gaming.

LG UltraGear has built a stellar reputation among the global gaming community since its establishment in 2018. In addition to providing exceptional gaming experiences with its superior monitors, LG UltraGear has been an active supporter of esports, engaging in collaborations, sponsorships and activations that have brought the brand closer to its audience. As a part of these ongoing efforts, the new Fortnite map and upcoming competition event will give LG yet another valuable opportunity to interact with gamers, while also delivering an ‘explosive’ outside-the-square brand experience.

      LG’s Advanced Display Innovations, Including 8K Micro LED, Feature in Interactive
      Exhibit Along With Immersive Media Art and Digitalized Spaces for Diverse Industries

      SEOUL, Jan. 31, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) is presenting its cutting-edge digital signage solutions at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2023, which opens today in Barcelona, Spain. The company’s full range of display solutions – including Micro LED displays, Transparent OLED Signage and LED displays – is exhibited across a number of digitalized spaces demonstrating use cases and applications for different industries, including retail, corporate, education and hospitality.
      Adopting the theme of Life, Be Bloomed for this year’s ISE, LG is presenting innovative display solutions that offer a world of possibilities and the power to make life better, each and every day. Visitors to the company’s booth will be able to experience solutions created to foster better business communications, solutions that deliver clear visibility and integrate seamlessly in various commercial environments as well as solutions that can convey the emotion and dynamism of stunning digital artworks in a whole new way.
      The massive 272-inch LG MAGNIT 8K Micro LED (model LSAB007) is making its debut at ISE with a truly jaw-dropping display, both in scale and in picture quality. The enormous Micro LED leverages millions of self-emissive micrometer-scale pixels to create images of exceptional vibrancy and depth, while its 8K resolution (7,680 x 4,320) delivers razor-sharp detail.
      LG MAGNIT 8K offers impressive color consistency and a wide viewing angle. This remarkable display solution will mesmerize visitors to the company’s booth, enthralling them with exclusive 8K footage that captures the beauty and majesty of the natural world. With its huge size and superb picture quality, LG MAGNIT is an excellent solution for showcasing media art in public spaces, and for use in building control rooms, boardrooms as well as corporate and hotel lobbies.
      Another spectacular sight for visitors, LG’s 8K Micro LED synchronizes with 56 Transparent OLED Signage (model 55EW5G-V) displays, covering both sides of the LG exhibition hall’s entrance to create an incredibly immersive media art experience. The captivating display setup transports visitors into a world of color and wonder – a world brought to life by the company’s cutting-edge display technologies.
      At ISE 2023, LG is also showcasing its solutions for virtual production studios for the very first time. A virtual production studio allows content creators to shoot live-action footage against a fully digital backdrop, which is made by displaying virtual scenery on a series of seamlessly connected LED screens. LG and its professional partners, including Mo-Sys and ARRI, will be showing visitors how a virtual production studio works – and how it can be used for entertainment applications, such as film and TV, and for corporate in-house broadcasting – and introducing LG’s LED displays and related solutions.
      At the center of LG’s booth is the eye-catching Floating CUBE LED, an LED sculpture that creatively combines four 2K LED displays (model LSCB012). Based on Tensegrity, a structural principle of tensional integrity, the CUBE presents strikingly three-dimensional anamorphic digital art that moves and flows across the displays’ surfaces. LG’s fine-pitch LED displays provide lifelike picture quality, while the seamless 90-degree corner design of the CUBE installation enhances the sense that one is looking at real, 3D objects inside an actual, physical space.
      Additionally, LG is introducing its new digital learning solution, LG CreateBoard (model TR3DK), at ISE 2023. An Interactive Digital Board designed to engage, inform and inspire students, and encourage greater collaboration, the new model provides LG CreateBoard Lab for content creating and writing as well as LG CreateBoard Share for wireless content and screen sharing. Also on show is LG ConnectedCare DMS, a cloud-based device management solution for schools and other learning environments that enables the remote management of multiple displays.
      As part of its comprehensive exhibit, LG is presenting convenient cloud-based management solutions tailored to the needs of diverse industries; including retail, corporate, education and hospitality. LG Pro:Cloud is a cloud platform for accessing LG’s content management solutions (CMS) including Pro:Centric Cloud (hospitality) and SuperSign Cloud, while LG ConnectedCare is a remote management solution that makes it possible to monitor signages, check energy usage and adjust display brightness via the integrated Energy Dashboard.1
      Also on full display at ISE 2023 is LG’s ongoing commitment to sustainability. Embracing the company’s Better Life for All vision, the latest B2B solutions from LG offer energy efficiency, reduced resource consumption, increased recyclability and enhanced accessibility.2 In the ESG zone, visitors can explore innovations such as cloud-based smart energy management solutions that help reduce power consumption and 4K UHD signage (model UL3J-EP), featuring components partially made from recycled plastic, and check out the LG Kiosk, which promotes digital inclusion with a tactile keypad for the visually impaired.
      “At ISE 2023, LG is demonstrating how its display solutions can add value in practically any commercial sector or area of your life you care to name,” said Paik Ki-mun, senior vice president and head of the Information Display business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “Far more than just screens for presenting content, our display solutions can help you connect, create, communicate and collaborate – expanding and digitalizing your daily experience in a host of convenient, new ways.”

      the 25GR75FG Will be Unveiled at Major EMEA Esports Event Held in January

      SEOUL, Jan. 16, 2022 — LG Electronics’ (LG) latest UltraGear gaming monitor (model 25GR75FG) has been named the official display of the League of Legends EMEA Championship (LEC) 2023. The new monitor will make its debut during the upcoming LEC season, which begins this weekend, supporting players from the region’s top teams as they battle it out for tournament honors. LG UltraGear is proud to continue its strong partnership with LEC, one of the world’s most popular esports leagues, and remains committed to fostering the growth of esports internationally.
      Designed for competitive esports, the latest LG UltraGear gaming monitor delivers outstanding picture quality and speed thanks to a 24.5-inch Full-HD (1,920 x 1,080) IPS display with a 360Hz refresh rate and 1 millisecond Gray-to-Gray (GTG) response time. The performance of LG’s new gaming display is further boosted by the integration of NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, which minimizes screen-tearing for seamless visuals, and NVIDIA Reflex, which helps to reduce click-to-display latency for more precise control of the onscreen action. VESA Display HDR 400 certified, the 25GR75FG also ensures bright, clear images and has a 3-sided borderless design that helps increase players’ sense of immersion, making it easier to focus during fierce competition.

      LG Electronics Tennessee Plant is Selected as Industry’s First U.S.
      Home Appliance Lighthouse Factory by World Economic Forum

      SEOUL, Jan. 16, 2023 — LG Electronics’ (LG) home appliance manufacturing plant in the United States has been selected as a world-leading Lighthouse Factory by the
      link hidden, please login to view. The million-square-foot factory in Clarksville, Tennessee – the U.S. production base for LG’s award-winning washers and dryers – is the industry’s first home appliance plant in the United States to join the WEF’s global network. Also, it is the company’s second Lighthouse Factory, following on the heels of the LG Smart Park in Changwon, South Korea, which was selected by the WEF last year.
      A “Lighthouse Factory” is recognized by the WEF for its role in shaping the future of manufacturing through the integration of Internet of Things (IoT), big data, artificial intelligence (AI), robots and other Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies. Since 2018, the WEF has selected and added global factories to its network twice a year.
      LG’s world-class autonomous factory in Tennessee utilizes advanced digital technologies from AI and big data to IoT and robots. Completed at the end of 2018, the facility now operates three production lines for front-load and top-load washing machines and dryers. With an annual production capacity of 1.2 million washers and 600,000 dryers, the plant proactively responds to changing North American demand through local production. More than 900 people work at the LG home appliance factory in Montgomery County, Tenn.
      Featuring a complete integrated production system streamlined process to supply impeccable products to customers on time, each line carries out the entire manufacturing process of new models from making the parts to assembly and packaging. In addition, strict quality conditions are applied to all the assembly lines to heighten quality across the board, from parts to finished products.
      The LG Tennessee factory boasts a fully autonomous logistics system with 166 automated guided vehicles (AGVs) that transport parts around the plant. With three times more AGVs than the LG Smart Park, these robots improve overall productivity by freeing up people for other tasks.
      With the integration of parts production such as metal press processing, plastic injection molding, and painting – including LG’s own intelligent injection molding system – the company has increased component productivity by 21 percent.1 In addition, the plant recognizes and responds in advance to potential productivity issues through an advanced detection system. By applying data-based AI technology that accurately predicts washing machine performance, the number of tests and energy consumed during testing are reduced by 22 percent, while the defect rate has been reduced by more than 61 percent via quality optimization.2
      The plant is also maximizing workplace safety and operational efficiency by using robots for complicated, potentially dangerous tasks, such as assembling and lifting heavy parts and welding.
      To further improve efficiency, LG plans to establish a 5G connectivity network across the facility in the second half of this year, creating an environment where its many AGVs can transport materials faster and more accurately based on stable, uninterrupted communication. LG will also introduce Autonomous Mobile Robots that navigate the expansive facility with ease to enhance its logistics system.
      LG’s commitment to sustainability can be seen throughout the Tennessee factory, which transitioned to renewable energy completely already in 2022. The plant also uses a high-efficiency utility infrastructure, which supplies the power, steam and heat necessary to produce LG’s home appliance products with the help of the company’s advanced Building Energy Control (BECON) solution.
      “Along with the LG Smart Park, LG’s Tennessee factory represents our unmatched leadership in transforming manufacturing facilities into advanced, futuristic hubs utilizing the most revolutionary technologies,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of the LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “Lighthouse Factory status exemplifies how LG continues to strive for providing differentiated customer experiences through customized manufacturing innovations.”

      As the world welcomes in the new year, LG is busy ushering in a new era in TV with the announcement of its new vision statement, “Sync to You, Open to All.” The company’s vision for the present and future of screen is all about syncing the user experience to each user’s individual tastes and lifestyle. It’s a vision that sees the screen as a seamless extension of people’s everyday life; a place where one can go to be entertained, to connect, to pursue their passions and so much more.

      “Sync to You, Open to All,” although new, is a continuance of LG’s long-term commitment to changing the role of TV. The company aims to realize its vision by reflecting customer opinion throughout the entire user experience journey, factoring feedback into every single facet – from product and service development to User Interface (UI) features, design and, of course, the viewing experience.
      In LG’s reimagining of what television is, the living room TV is now considered a lifestyle hub – one centered on the delivery of a personalized, customizable experience that lets users do and be more.

      “Sync to You” relates to the delivery of a user experience that takes personalization to the next level. In terms of hardware, this means the introduction of new and diverse screen products intended for different audiences. These will include screens leveraging Zero Connect technology, to provide spatial and interior design freedom, flexible screens that users can ‘bend’ to their needs and screens that eschew conventional design.

      As far as software is concerned, “Sync to You” focuses on providing unique experiences optimized for each user, thanks to webOS, LG’s open and constantly evolving smart TV platform. This encompasses the ability to customize a broad range of functions and settings to one’s preferences, starting with UI configuration, content recommendations and picture quality. But it also extends to the provision of an expanded customer experience, thanks to a wide range of interactive services from categories as diverse as cloud gaming, the metaverse, remote learning, home security, home fitness or health.
      A variety of virtual worlds can also be accessed, from

The app on LG TVs offer access to over 180 classes taught by the world’s best instructors and thanks to a new partnership with , LG TV owners can benefit from integrated services developed exclusively for webOS.
      LG TVs also offer a variety of fitness services from , world’s largest fitness group and , to, which allows to connect a fitness machine to the TV and Exercite, a motion sensor solution that recognizes your body’s posture.
      The second part of LG’s vision statement, “Open to All,” is about collaboration, inclusivity and sustainability. Through open collaboration, LG TV users will be able to connect to different platforms and devices across an ever-growing ecosystem. Communication and control will be especially smooth thanks to support for Matter, the latest open connectivity standard for smart home solutions.
      LG TV is also designed to be accessible to all users, regardless of their age or abilities. In consultation with its accessibility advisory group, whose members include people living with various disabilities, LG is continuously developing and rolling out inclusive technologies and features. Among those currently offered on LG TV are audio-to-text captions and a sign language screen that can be easily moved and resized whenever the user desires. There are also services available on LG TV that have been created specifically with elderly users and children in mind.
      Sustainability is another integral element of LG TV and of LG’s vision. All LG TV products are shipped in boxes that feature one-color printing and have been made from biodegradable materials. The TVs themselves contain parts fabricated from recycled plastics. LG’s OLED TVs deserve special mention when it comes to sustainability, using a smaller number of components and offering greater recyclability than their LCD counterparts. Furthermore, since they do not require a backlight having fewer parts overall, there is less to recycle and dispose of.

      Guided by its new vision statement “Sync to You, Open to All,” and a firmly held belief that “Life’s Good,” LG is and will continue to provide LG TV users with differentiated lifestyle experiences and exceptional customer value.
