LG OLED Picture-on-Wall and Picture-on-Glass Technologies Impress CEDIA

Offering the industry’s broadest portfolio of consumer OLED TVs – 10 models in 55-, 65- and 77-inch class sizes – LG Electronics USA is bringing the 2017 LG OLED lineup to CEDIA 2017 in San Diego this week.

The LG SIGNATURE OLED TV W7 features a Picture-on-Wall form factor. At just 2.57mm thin in the 65-inch model, the LG SIGNATURE OLED TV W7 sticks directly on the wall, eliminating any gap between the TV and the wall. The 2017 LG OLED lineup also features the revolutionary Picture-on-Glass design of the E7 and G7 series and the blade-slim design of the B7 and C7 series.

As the first TVs in the world to incorporate Dolby Atmos sound, 2017 LG OLED TVs not only deliver cutting-edge visuals, but also next-generation audio technologies, creating an entertainment powerhouse. Starting next month, 2017 LG OLED TVs also will feature Technicolor’s Expert Mode, which displays colors optimized by Technicolor’s color scientists who work on the majority of Hollywood’s premium content.

Furthering LG OLED TVs’ ability to reproduce the most lifelike images, all 2017 LG OLED TVs feature Active HDR, which delivers brighter highlights and greater shadow details when displaying HDR content. Active HDR allows the TVs to process the picture scene by scene, inserting dynamic data where needed. Even more, 2017 LG OLED TVs support multiple HDR formats including Dolby VisionTM, HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) broadcast technology.

All LG OLED TV models come with the latest generation of LG’s highly-acclaimed webOS Smart TV platform, which makes finding and switching between limitless content options – including broadcast TV, streaming services, a growing library of 4K and HDR programming and external devices – simple and fast.

Here are all the details.
