JUST HOW DOES ULTRA HD WORK?

August 15th, 2013 by LG Blog UK
 
Ultra HD is the buzzword in TV-land these days, with native content looking stunning in its super-high resolution. But what exactly is it – and how does it affect what you watch? First things first: what is Ultra HD? Ultra HD resolution is four times the resolution of Full HD TVs and Blu-rays. Officially, digital cinema Ultra HD (also known as 4K) is 4096 x 2160 pixels but to fit on to the standard 16:9 aspect ratio on TVs, that number has been adjusted to 3840 x 2160 pixels.

LG TrueSteam™ Technology. Your answer to dirt, pollen and grass stains this summer…

Be it grass, dirt or sticky residue from ice lollies, clothes are prone to harder wearing, more stains and require a refresh on a far more frequent basis. LG's TrueSteam™ technology is designed to care for your family's clothing, cleaning deeper and effectively removing allergens. Ingrained dirt is much easier to remove, as the tiny (1,600 times smaller than...

A fridge that’s never empty, an oven that never burns and a robot cleaner… the future of British domesticity?

August 12th, 2013 by LG Blog UK
 
The rise of household appliances over the last 60 years has meant that we now spend an average of just two hours a week on chores compared to 63 hours three decades ago according to new research commissioned by LG Electronics, but we are still not content and expect further developments in technology so we don’t even have to lift a finger around the house. LG’s research reveals that a third of Brits think that in a mere 20 years from now, household chores will become a thing of the past due to the continuous improvements in home appliances and 16-24-year-olds...

Life in the Cloud

August 9th, 2013 by LG Blog UK
 
Most of our daily lives revolve around digital content. When was the last time you listened to a CD, watched a DVD or used a USB to transfer work? It’s hard to remember, isn’t it. We carry everything on mobile devices, but storage is limited and having some content isn’t always good enough. We need access to it all, when we want it, where we want it. LG Cloud enables users to stream content between LG Smart TVs, Android smartphones or PCs. Automatic synchronisation means photos, movies and music can be accessed wherever you are on a platform that suits....
