LG has announced its first-ever Direct View LED (DVLED) display series designed specifically for high-end residential custom install. LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema is LG’s long-awaited entry into the super-luxury residential display segment, and is a direct challenger to Samsung’s rival The Wall Micro LED technology.

Using 2 million to 33 million individual diodes (depending on resolution), the technology combines high brightness with an extended lifespan, wide viewing angle and high colour gamut. LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema is suitable for both home theatre and use in brighter media room environments.

Unlike LED TVs, Direct-View LED technology uses no backlight. Images are created directly by the LED diodes, and are capable of extreme high contrast ratio and brightness.

LG will offer DVLED screens in a 16:9 configuration, ranging from 81 inches to 325 inches diagonal, as well as UltraStretch video wall-style installations that deliver a seamless 32:9. Typical applications for the latter will be multiple video sources, like live sports.

Resolution options for DVLED are: 2k Full HD, 4k 16:9, 4k UltraStretch and 8k 16:9.

LG DVLED Extreme displays will be available exclusively through a new custom-installation dealer program, initially in the US. To help integrators, LG has conceived over thirty DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Displays, ranging in sizes and resolution.

Installations of specific LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Displays include integrator training and customer support assistance, on-site help from an LG field engineer during installation, and twice-yearly LG on site visit health checks for three years.

There will also be an LG Connected Care software subscription allowing the integrator to remotely monitor their customer’s system performance.

All DVDLED system will be delivered to integrators in flight cases, instead of boxes or wooden crates.

Thanks to a webOS powered control box, owners will also be able to use their DVLED display for artwork, via a wired connection. LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Displays can also interface with webOS-compatible content management systems to enable multi-window viewing.

“This truly is the supercar of home display technologies, offering hand-constructed quality and performance that appeals to those with luxury lifestyles who want something that is not only immersive, but also highly exclusive,” said Dan Smith, LG Electronics USA’s vice president in charge of DVLED displays.

“LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Display technology is rated to last 100,000 hours before reaching half-life, meaning that it could deliver stunning visuals for over 10 years.”
