LG Unveils MAGNIT 4k MicroLED Display at CEDIA Expo 2023
This week, LG Electronics USA is unveiling the new 118-inch LG MAGNIT 4K MicroLED residential display at CEDIA Expo 2023, LG Booth 3107.
Priced at $237,000, the LG MAGNIT 118-inch display is a Micro LED with a simple two-cabinet design that can be installed in just a fraction of the time as other modular LED displays. The 118-inch display (about 9.8 feet measured diagonally) is based on LG’s DVLED (direct-view light-emitting diode) technology for commercial displays. Each of its 8 million-plus Micro LED pixels is an individual light each about the width of a human hair, enabling pure blacks and contrast because it can turn off pixels where the picture is black.
In addition to providing high dynamic range capability with more shadow detail thanks to HDR10 and HDR10 Pro compatibility, the display also offers special features. LG says the Alpha 9 processor uses artificial intelligence deep learning technology to reduce picture noise and optimize color saturation and contrast based on room circumstances. It also enhances the clarity and legibility of faces and text, while an ambient light sensor adjusts brightness and tone mapping to maintain optimal appearance in varying lighting conditions.
To help homeowners make the most of the LG MAGNIT’s visuals, the display integrates AirPlay 2 and Miracast technology, allowing users to wirelessly stream content from virtually any iOS, Android, macOS or W
indows 10 device. With the included Art Gallery and My Digital Picture Frame features, users can easily load digital art or their photo collages onto the display via the LG mobile app, and then display a static piece or a rotating gallery.
Integrators and their clients will appreciate how the 120-Hz display is optimized for various content in indoor home environments, with 250 nits of brightness delivering performance and visibility even in sun-lit rooms. A pair of integrated 50-watt speakers and a stand or wall mount enable standalone installations. In contrast, WiSA connectivity enables use of high-fidelity wireless speakers, including the Bang & Olufsen Beolab 50 speakers being demonstrated with the LG display at CEDIA Expo 2023.
The 118-inch LG MAGNIT display provides a “premium” experience, including the webOS 23 interface that integrators can customize to meet specific customer preferences. In fact, each display is pre-loaded with apps for YouTube, Disney+ and Prime Video to make setup as easy as possible.
Also spotlighted at CEDIA Expo 2023 is LG’s lineup of LG OLED TVs, led by the just-launched 97-inch diagonal LG SIGNATURE OLED M (model 97M3) and 83- and 77-inch diagonal LG OLED evo M (models 83M3 & 77M3 respectively). LG claims the LG OLED M Series is the world’s first consumer TV with a wireless connectivity solution capable of real-time video and audio transmission at up to 4K 120Hz2 , removing the need to run cables and wires directly to the TV. With its Zero Connect Box, which wirelessly transmits high-quality 120Hz 4K video and audio to the screen, the LG OLED M leaves the area around the screen completely free from the visual distractions of cables and TV accessories to further immerse users in the experience. The LG OLED M Series further expands the LG OLED lineup which also features the LG OLED evo G3 and LG OLED evo C3 series offering consumers screen sizes ranging from 42-to 97 inches.
