LG Electronics (LG) announced that it won a total of nine awards at 2012 the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), further solidifying its position as a leader in developing cutting-edge products. Honors include the Popular Mechanics Editors’ Choice, IMS Research TV Innovation Award, multiple HD Guru Awards, and the prestigious CNET Best of Show.

In addition to being selected as the best HDTV at CES by CNET, the LG 55EM9600 OLED HDTV was chosen by CNET’s unbiased, expert editors as the most exciting, innovative, and promising new product at the show.

“CNET editors from around the globe have spent a grueling and inspiring six days pounding the pavement in Las Vegas to get our hands on thousands of tech products,” said Lindsey Turrentine, Editor in Chief of CNET Reviews. ”We lugged our laptops and cameras for miles, across the show floors, through launch parties, and to closed-door meetings. We found the gadgets of tomorrow — and after sorting through them all–chose LG for our hard-fought Best of CES award.”

“LG has always been committed to developing innovative products that help improve our customers’ lives,” said Stephen Gater, CE Marketing Director for LG UK. “We’re enthusiastic about these honors at CES and look forward to continuing to bring leading products to market that are recognized for both their technical and design features.”

Using self-lighted organic pixels, the 55-in screen class (54.6-inch diagonal) OLED TV exhibits precise color, absolute contrast and blazing clarity. Boasting a contrast ratio of over 100,000,000:1, fifty times greater than that of LED/LCD display panels, the OLED TV displays vivid colors and the fine details, helping to preserve images with utmost clarity and sharpness, even when displaying scenes with dark lighting. Since the OLED TV does not require a lamp or bulky support structures, it is 4mm (3/16ths of an inch) thin and weighs only 16.5 pounds.





The 84LM9600 is the world’s largest Ultra Definition (UD) 3D TV LG’s 3D and boasts an impressively large 84-inch class (84.04 inch diagonal) screen and superb picture quality with 8 million pixels, four times the resolution of existing Full HD TV panels. Combined with LG’s Cinema Screen slim and narrow bezel, which reduces the TV’s frame to negligible levels, the 3D UD TV provides a most immersive 3D viewing expe-rience.

The SP820 Smart TV Upgrader easily turns any HDTV into a Smart TV, including access to streaming services from Vudu, Amazon Instant Video, and Cinema Now, among others. With HTML 5 and Flash, there is also a full Internet browser as well as intuitive navigation with the enhanced LG Magic Remote.

LG’s BH9420PW, is a “3D Sound” home theater system, incorporating LG’s 3D sound technology with a state-of-the-art Blu-ray system. The BH9420PW enhances the 3D experience by adding a dimension of height to the audio field and uses 3D Sound Zooming to synchronize the audio with 3D picture depth when playing back 3D video from Blu-ray discs and broadcast sources.

The Blast Chiller takes room-temperature beverages, such as wine or soda cans and quickly cools them; it can chill a 12-ounce can in around five minutes as well as two soft drink cans or bottle of wine in eight minutes. Quick chilling is enabled by Jet Flow and Swirling Structure, which decreases the temperature and distributes the chilled air throughout the chiller compartment.

These awards follow the CES Innovations Awards where LG was honored with 12 awards, including the Best of Innovations for Major Home Appliances for the LFX31935 refrigerator with Blast Chiller technology; for Video Displays the PM9700 plasma, LM9600 and LM8600 LED HDTVs; for Video Components the BP720 Blu-ray Disc™ Player and SP820 Smart TV Upgrader; for Audio Components the ND8520 iPod Speaker Dock; for Major Home Appliances the WM8000HVA/DLEX8000V and WM9000HVA/ DLEX9000V washer/dryer pairs that feature LG Smart ThinQ™ and LrV5900 HOM-BOT Robotic Vacuum; for Wireless Handsets, the LG DoublePlay and LG Revolution with VMware Horizon Mobile™.

    Any update on the OLED yet? when is it coming? I can’t wait to see it in the flesh!

  • LGBlogUK

    We are also really excited about our OLED, we can’t wait to see it on the shelves in the 2nd half of this year! :o)

    It will truly be exciting when the OLED TV’s are in the low price
    range TV market, (that is if Sony’s Crystal LED doesn’t take over) and perhaps
    I’ll consider upgrading.  Samsung also
    had some impressive traditional LCD TV’s to show off.  LG has been coming to the forefront for the
    last few years and I’m impressed with their dedication to providing a wide
    range of price and quality.  I was also
    impressed when my employer DISH Network showed me the new Hopper receiver they
    were revealing at CES.  Besides the huge
    250 HD recording capacity it has multi-room DVR functionality with the help of
    the Joey “client boxes.”  I plan to use
    this to eliminate my additional receivers in the home and save some hassle with
    storing them.  The Joey is so small it
    can fit easily behind my living room wall mounted TV.  I’ll even have Smart TV apps like Pandora and
    Facebook when they are released at a later date.  The Joey will give me use of all of these
    features in all of my rooms so I don’t have to upgrade any of my TV’s anytime
    soon.
