LG 8K TV Range Expands for CES 2020

LG Electronics introduces expanded 8K TV lineup at CES 2020.

Expect plenty of 8K televisions at CES 2020 and LG will be doing its part by unveiling eight TVs with new 77- and 65-inch class models joining LG's existing 88- and 75-inch screen sizes.

LG 8K Nanocell TV CES 2020

The LG 2020 lineup includes premium 88- and 77-inch class LG SIGNATURE OLED 8K TVs (models 88/77 OLED ZX) and advanced LG NanoCell TVs (models 75/65 Nano99, 75/65 Nano97, 75/65 Nano95). Furthermore, the company boasts that every model exceeds the industry's official new 8K Ultra HD definition set by the Consumer Technology Association(CTA). 

The new models can play native 8K content thanks to supporting the most extensive selection of 8K content sources from HDMI and USB digital inputs, including codecs such as HEVC, VP9 and AV1, the latter being backed by major streaming providers including YouTube. LG's 8K TVs will support 8K content streaming at a rapid 60FPS and are certified to deliver 8K 60P over HDMI.

Improved AI Imaging

LG's latest 8K TVs also feature upgraded performance thanks to the new α (Alpha) 9 Gen 3 AI Processor. Thanks to 'deep learning' tech, the 2020 lineup delivers AI-based 8K upscaling. AI 8K Upscaling is said to provide vivid and accurate 8K images by analysing the content and applying Quad Step Noise Reduction and frequency-based Sharpness Enhancer to increase lower resolution content to near 8K perfection.

Additionally, the α9 Gen 3 processor's AI Picture Pro is capable of recognising faces and text on the screen. That skill aids the fine-tuning and sharpening to produce more natural skin tones, well-defined facial features and clearer, more readable characters. Furthermore, Auto Genre Selection recognises the type of content being watched and automatically applies the ideal picture settings.


AI Sound

With LG's AI Sound Pro takes care of audio content and categorises it as either music, movies, sports, drama or news. For clearer voices and richer, more textured background sound, speech is isolated, and their volume increased so you can hear dialogue easier. At the same time, background noises are identified, and the scene up-mixed to virtual 5.1 surround for a heightened immersion.

Smart TV and IoT

You can also monitor and control your compatible IoT kit via the LG 8K TVs as well as Hands-Free Voice Control enabling you to manage multiple connected devices. Along with ThinQ voice recognition and LG's webOS Smart TV platform, the new TVs support Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit as well as both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. Amazon Alexa Premium Far-Field Voice compatibility will land on the tellys in the future.
