LG's 55" OLED TV Breaks Cover Prior To CES

Well, you can't blame LG for getting a jump on the CES festivities. Once the news starts rolling early next week, it'll be a complete blur from top to bottom. LG's looking to avoid that, and aside from the 84" Ultra-Definition HDTV they announced a few days ago, the company is now detailing a 55" OLED TV. The company's calling this the world's largest OLED TV in the commercial space, incorporating LG's 4-color pixels and Color Refiner. "Working closely with LG Display, we have a product which not only delivers on all the advantages of OLED over LCD but at a significantly lower cost than what could be achieved using existing OLED manufacturing technologies," said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "OLED is clearly the future of home TV entertainment and LG is very focused on making this exciting technology as easy as possible for consumers to embrace."

What sets LG's TV picture apart from other OLED TVs is 4-Color Pixels and Color Refiner which work together to generate natural and accurate colors that are sharp and consistent. The 4-Color Pixels feature allows for more accurate color depiction by using a set of four colors (red, green blue and white) in comparison to the RGB setup used by other OLED TV manufacturers. Color Refiner ensures consistency in colors from a wider viewing angle via an LG algorithm which improves and refines hues and tones. This is in contrast to other OLED TVs which often exhibit drastic changes in hues from different viewing angles and abnormal color gamut.


Boasting an infinite contrast ratio, LG's OLED TV exhibits vivid colors and the smallest details regardless of the overall luminance of the on-screen image. In turn, colors and details throughout an entire image are preserved with utmost clarity and sharpness, even when displaying scenes with dark lighting. Such color capabilities are technically impossible with LED and LCD display panels. And at 1,000 times faster than LED/LCD displays, LG's OLED TV shows crystal clear motion without any blurring or bleeding.

And LG's OLED TV is as aesthetically pleasing as it is technologically sophisticated. LG's Slim and Narrow Bezel design gives the TV a sleek, minimal look and at only 4 mm thin and a mere 7.5 kg, LG's OLED TV practically blends into the wall.

There's no mention of a price, but boy, you can bet you'll want one regardless of the MSRP.

I know that bezel is so thin and the color is so good. I want an Oled TV so bad. I wish they would come out sooner I think a lot of people are going to be picking them up.

Its pretty cool that in the last few years, the cost of producing large screen OLED tvs has gone so low. I remember when Sony introduced their OLED tv's a few years ago and boy were they expensive!

Any word on monitors? Especially 24" ones.

This is great, it could finally prove useful in replacing my FW900 which is currently unused to due some issues I'm having with it.
