4K  Awards  Epson  OLED 


The 77-inch LG 4K curved OLED 77EC980V television has been named European High-End TV 2014-2015 by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA); this is the third consecutive EISA award for LG's OLED TV technology. The remarkable screen was recently previewed in London and impressed with its profound black level performance and vibrant colour reproduction. Currently LG is the only brand developing and selling next generation curved OLED screens.

Dawn Stockell, Head of Brand Marketing at LG Electronics UK (pictured above), told Inisde CI the company was fully committed to curved screen development. "LG believes that curved screens offer genuine innovation," she said. " LG's curved screen provides equal distance from all parts of the screen to the human eye. This removes the problem of screen-edge visual distortion and detail loss, along with extending the optimum viewing angle to ensure more people get the very best picture experience at the same time." Stockwell also points out that a curved screen "offers stand-out design as a truly innovative feature for stylish homes."

Hyun-hwoi Ha, president and CEO of LG's Home Entertainment Company, adds the brand is committed to pushing the limits of technology and design. "It is a great thrill and honour to have our products recognised by an organisation as widely respected as EISA. LG will continue to push the limits of technology and design in our effort to meet the needs of consumers around the world who look to LG to deliver the best that the industry has to offer."

The panel, due for release in the UK this autumn, features the brand's proprietary WRGB technology and upscaling Tru 4K Engine Pro.
