LG will be making its smart TVs even smarter and taking the picture quality to another level when it unveils its exciting 2018 range of OLED and Super UHD TVs at the International Consumer Electronics Show which kicks off in Las Vegas next week.
The company will introduce ThinQ artificial intelligence which will allow the implementation of voice control and voice requests on its open smart platform alongside third-party AI services.
This means users can talk directly into the TVs remote control to access content and enjoy the products features.
Under the hood the new smart TV line-up will be using natural language processing for its voice activated control and connectivity.
Customers will be able to search for information, images and videos by making a verbal request through the TVs remote.
For example, you could ask the TV to “show me all the movies starring this actor” or “show me cat videos”.
You will also be able to instruct the TV with your voice like searching for the soundtrack of the film or asking the television to switch itself off after the program you’re watching is completed.
The LG TVs will also act as smart home hubs to empower other smart products including robot vacuum cleaners, air purifiers, smart lights, smart speakers and many other devices that can connect to the television via wi-fi or Bluetooth.
Australians will also be able to utilise Google Assistant through the LG TV to control their connected devices.
LG’s new TVs will have an Alpha Nine intelligent processor onboard to provide natural images with incredibly rich colours and sharpness and offer more realism than ever before.
The new Alpha Nine processor also offers noise reduction to improve image clarity and render smooth gradations.
There is an improved colour correction algorithm that has expanded the reference colour coordinates sevenfold.
The Alpha Nine processor can support smoother and clearer motion images even at 120 frames per second so fast action content like sports and action movies are rendered better than ever before.
The 2018 LG OLED and Super UHD TVs will include 4K Cinema HDR for a truly cinematic experience at home regardless of the format.
These new televisions will support existing HDR formats like Dolby Vision and HDR 10 and will process HDR images frame by frame using LG’s proprietary technology and Enhanced Dynamic Tone mapping.
These new TVs will also come with Dolby Atmos.
