The LG TV 2023 is one of the latest OLED televisions from the company. It offers the first OLED television with Dolby Vision IQ and Precision Detail, unlocking additional features for Dolby Vision content. These two technologies work in tandem with the television’s powerful a9 Gen5 processor to deliver a more immersive viewing experience. The new television also offers Dolby Atmos(r) spatial sound.
65-inch transparent OLED panel
The transparency of an OLED screen could be an important factor for the design of a television. The transparent panel is a great way to improve the visibility of the content displayed on the screen, while also adding a modern and stylish touch. It’s also possible to view the content without looking at the screen. And LG Electronics is currently looking into the concept of a transparent TV. It’s possible that the company could launch a television with a transparent OLED panel in the next few years.
The technology is not yet ready for a consumer product. But a transparent OLED panel could provide a great option for signage and businesses. LG Display has produced panels for commercial signage. These panels are a combination of a transparent OLED panel and a reinforced glass coating. This technology can create high-contrast images while blocking 99% of light that falls on the panel.
The transparency of an OLED panel can also affect the black level and the picture quality. A transparent panel reduces the amount of contrast which is important for deep blacks. However, transparent OLED TVs can be used to jazz up subway train windows, and some Chinese households already have a transparent OLED TV. The first transparent OLED TV was launched by Xiaomi in 2020, but the model sold only a few units. The transparency of the panel means that it sacrifices the pure blacks that most OLED TVs have.
The LG TV 2023 boasts a new hybrid display technology called QD-OLED. This new display combines the best of OLED technology and Quantum Dots from Samsung’s QLED TVs. As a result, this television is capable of displaying absolute black.
The technology uses three layers of blue OLED material to make each pixel. These layers are able to share the brightness burden and provide more uniform color. This reduces the amount of materials used and the complexity of manufacturing, and that means a cheaper TV for you in the long run.
Samsung continues to lead the market in North America, despite declining share from near monopoly in previous years. It maintained its #1 position in Q1 2022, while LG Electronics and TCL both saw their share decline. Samsung’s unit share fell two percentage points while LG lost seven percent of its revenue share.
Samsung is also a leading innovator in QD-OLED technology and has already introduced its first QD-OLED TV. The 55-inch model costs around £1,900, while the 65-inch version is £4,599. Compared to LG’s QD-OLED TVs, Samsung has the lower price. However, despite being cheaper, the QD-OLED panels are more expensive. So it would make sense for Samsung to reevaluate their expectations for the 2022 market and not rush into a new technology.
Dolby Vision IQ with Precision Detail
The LG TV 2023 offers “Dolby Vision IQ with Precision Detail”, a new feature that improves the quality of dark scenes. The specialized processor works with Ambient Light Sensors to adjust the image on the screen to improve details. The new feature is available as an optional upgrade. You can get an updated firmware version if you already own a Smart TV.
This new feature does not require specially developed content, but it requires higher computing power to perform. No other TV offers this feature. The company collaborated with Dolby to implement this technology. It combines Dolby’s Intelligent View and Precision Detail, allowing the TV to process multiple Dolby Vision video streams. It also claims that its Pentonic SoC can display Dolby Vision content in multiple windows.
The update is available to download and install using a USB connection. You can also manually install it using the LG support website.
The new LG webOS 22 smart TV system introduces personal profiles for each family member. This feature lets you customize your viewing experience and get recommendations based on your viewing history. It also supports Google Stadia and Nvidia GeForce Now cloud gaming services. Users can also log in to their TV with a compatible smartphone via NFC Magic Tap.
The C-series is LG’s most popular offering. The company also offers the A2 and B2 lineups. The A2 is a slightly older model and has a lower processor, but still has a 120Hz panel. It also has an HDMI 2.0 input. LG’s Z2 lineup is available in 77 and 88-inch screen sizes, and has the same webOS 22 software as the C2 series. However, the Z2 line does not offer a rollable OLED TV.
The top-of-the-range models are powered by a new, more powerful processor, AI, and HDR support. The latest version can recognize faces on the screen and analyze scene-by-scene information. It can also upgrade lower-resolution content to higher resolution.
