CES 2011: LG’s Home Entertainment range for 2011

January 5th, 2011 by LG Blog UK

Today LG announced their new home entertainment range for 2011 at CES in Las Vegas, including cinema 3D TVs (passive 3D), Smart TVs and super slim OLED technology.

The new 3D TVs add to LG’s already extensive 3D range, with the LED Cinema screens (LW450U, LW550T AND LW650T) being a world first offering consumers a comfortable and accessible 3D home cinema experience. Using the same polarized glasses that are used in cinemas that don’t require any charging, the new Cinema 3D screens combine convenience and comfort with stylish design in sizes between 32” and 55”.

LG are also continuing their investment into Active 3D TV, with the announcement of further Full LED NANO 3D screens (LW770T and LW950T). Alongside these are new Plasma 3D TVs (PW450T, PZ250T, PZ550T, PZ570T and PZ950T) bolstering an already extensive 3D range, with nearly 50% of the 2011 TV range being 3D ready.

Another exciting new revelation from CES is Connected TV, named as a key focus for 2011 with 30% of next year’s TV range being fully equipped with Smart TV technology. Today’s announcement featured a redesigned Smart TV platform, including a new web-browser and app store, designed to make Internet TV even easier than ever before, especially when used with the magic motion remote control.

The new LG Smart Upgrade (ST560) allows consumers to receive LG Smart TV content on any TV with an HDMI input. The compact unit also enables wi-fi, DLNA and web browsing to ensure that all LG customers can experience the sofa-surfing experience offered by connected TV.

As if this wasn’t enough, LG are continuing their development of OLED screens. Building off the success of the 15” EL9500 released last year at CES 2010, LG presented the largest commercially available OLED screen at IFA last year measuring in at 31”.

Stephen Gater, Head of Marketing Home Entertainment, commented: “LG is the fastest growing major TV brand in 2010 and has been for the past three years, having almost doubled in size since 2008. This growth is testament to LG’s role as an industry leader and sector innovator and its continued development of cutting edge technologies to ensure that the very best products are available for consumers.”

“2011 also promises to be another exciting year for LG, with an incredibly broad range of products incorporating new screen and content technologies – the way we watch TV is changing and LG is committed to helping consumers take advantage of these spectacular developments.

Life’s Good at the LG Home!

April 27th, 2010 by LG Blog UK


Last week LG held an exclusive lifestyle event at the Haymarket Hotel’s Town House just off London’s Trafalgar Square to showcase their forthcoming home entertainment solutions for the press and a few lucky members of the public.

The event was designed to showcase how LG’s latest home entertainment solutions would look and could be used to maximum effect in your home. This included two themed evenings – one for the ladies and one for the lads with cocktails and beer tasting respectively, amongst other great treats for the lucky attendees. We will have videos of the ladies and lads nights up soon so you can see all the excellent things LG had to treat their lads and ladies, as well as highlights of the great home entertainment solutions being shown off.


Each room in the house was kitted out with a different home entertainment scenario to reflect how it could look in the home. This included the water-resistant EL9500 OLED TV shown in the bathroom, the stylish LX9900 Full LED active 3DTV in the living room with 3D Blu-Ray for the ideal home cinema set up, and the LD950 passive 3DTV in the kids bedroom with an Xbox360 playing Avatar the game in 3D!

We will have individual in-depth write ups of rooms and themed evenings coming soon to the LG Blog, looking at each home entertainment solution and its technology one at a time.
