LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., Feb. 11, 2021 — LG OLED, widely used as reference displays by major Hollywood studios and by content developers and distributors worldwide, is receiving a Technology & Engineering Emmy Award.
The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced that it will honor LG Electronics with the Emmy for “OLED Reference Monitors for Creative, Technical, Quality Control and Client Viewing” at the 72nd Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards ceremony, which will take place in partnership with the National Association of Broadcasters as part of the 2021 NAB Show on October 10.
This recognition reinforces how LG OLED is highly valued by many of the world’s top production studios and renowned creators for exceptionally accurate color reproduction and unsurpassed contrast. Able to faithfully replicate a director’s creative intent, revealing every detail and nuance with the precision of its self-lit pixels, LG OLED is a popular reference display thanks to its capacity to meet the high-quality standards of the creative content community.
LG OLED TVs deliver optimized video processing, best-in-class calibration, a high degree of interoperability with support for a large number of video and audio formats, and various other features developed specifically to meet the needs of professional content creators. Designed to render motion as precisely as they reproduce colors, LG OLED TVs are also a common sight in live sports production facilities around the world.
Established by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in 1948, the Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards honor development and innovation in broadcast technology and recognize innovators for their contribution to television engineering.
This accolade comes on the heels of other Emmy-award-winning LG innovations. Last year, LG Electronics received a Technology & Engineering Emmy for co-developing and deploying HTML5 for a full TV experience. Previously, LG’s U.S. R&D subsidiary, Zenith Electronics LLC, earned Emmy Awards for pioneering developments such as the first wireless TV remote control, industry standards for HDTV and stereo TV, and flat-screen displays.
LG also received the Hollywood Professional Association’s Engineering Excellence Award for developing and deploying 1D & 3D LUT based hardware level CalMAN calibration with its OLED TVs.
