At the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016 carnival, LG is coming up with spectacular new feature in its TV services. Now forget all the hype about 4K and welcome the new highlights of the first production-grade 8K model, the UH9800. Whether it is a big venture or a small business company, the CES at Las Vegas offers the best stage platform to present new technology and tricks. Same goes with the Korean giant, which is hoping to give best competition to its one-up TV rivals with both improved HDR colors and an 8K model. HDR boosts a TV's contrast ratio and color accuracy for a richer and more realistic look.
HDR-Plus combines LG’s so-called Color Prime Plus, which uses a new filter to try and replicate cinema-quality color with the company's Ultra Luminance technology for an improved contrast ratio.
Though, the company does not state much about what its 98-inch monster will offer or when it ships, but it is safe to say that this won't be an impulse purchase when Sharp's 8K screen costs about $130,000. Both the UH8500 (55 to 75 inches) and UH9500 (55 to 86 inches) series from LG has been featured with filters and LCD phosphors to reach about 90% of the Digital Cinema Initiative's expanded color range.
Both the series and the lower-end UH7700 (49 to 65 inches) also tout a ‘True Black’ panel that cuts glare and improves contrast, along with a Contrast Maximizer option that... well, does what it says.
If you are design conscious and wants trendier look then you should pick UH9500, since it has an extremely slim (0.22-inch) body that manages to cram in a relatively powerful Harman/Kardon audio system. All of LG's newer sets should pack the easier-to-use webOS 3.0 for their interface.
Though, the exact prices for the new models of LG TV series is unknown and the company remains mum on the state of its OLED lineup, it won’t be surprising if there is at least one within your budget given rapidly falling prices. This was the opinion about LG, but the big question arises is what Samsung, Sony and others are coming up with. As LG gets points for early announcement of its coming up technology and deals, you may well see strong alternatives before long.
A Verge report said, "Appearing forward-looking is important as more and more TV makers continue upgrading their lineups to 4K and begin looking for new technology terminology to attach to their latest products. Sony and Samsung have already updated some of their current higher-end TVs with HDR compatibility, and we can expect every TV maker to push HDR heavily next week. LG won't disclose prices right now, and it's keeping mum on the state of its OLED lineup. Just as with 4K, HDR requires content to transform it from a marketing perk to something a consumer can actually enjoy."
A report talking about LG's latest technology in Digital Trends said, "The UH9500 (screen sizes 55-86 inches) UH8500 (screen sizes 55-75 inches) and UH7700 (screen sizes 49-65 inches) share several traits in common. All will offer what LG is calling HDR Plus, which means all of the sets in this series can process and display High Dynamic Range content from a variety of sources, include LG’s Color Prime tech for enhanced color brightness."
