15 Awesome A/V Applications from CEDIA Expo 2015
From immersive and wireless audio to 4K RGB laser video, planter speakers, day-and-date movie releases, more OLED, big sound out of small speakers and much more, we take a look at some great audio and video statements made at CEDIA Expo 2015.
LG Electronics LG continued its big OLED Ultra HD push at CEDIA Expo, dazzling attendees with an array of the ultra-thin, ultra-black-level sets that the company says are now in 2,000 stores nationwide. “Our answer to better picture quality is OLED TV,” says Tim Alessi, head of new product development. “Now our OLED lineup is triple that of last year. There’s another world’s first [for LG], the EF9500 is the first to support next-generation HDR content; OLED is the perfect vehicle for high dynamic range content because of its ability to achieve perfect black levels, it can achieve the brightness range necessary at a lower level so you get that dynamic range for the great viewing experience but it’s much more comfortable because you don’t have to have such high peak brightness.” With its webOS platform the company is riding the wave of streaming content partnerships to help deliver that 4K format straight to the TV, and LG also mentioned that it is anticipating having Ultra HD Blu-ray announcements for CES 2016. The manufacturer is also trying to boost consumer education around OLED UHD with a training and certification program for retailers as well as a digital campaign. Also, while perhaps not as sexy as 4K OLED, LG also shared news that among its price drops its EG9100 55-inch OLED that’s only 1080p will now be available for $1,999.Back to article
