SEOUL, August. 15, 2014 — LG Electronics (LG) today announced that its 4K OLED TV, Smart+ TV, SoundPlate and its flagship LG G3 smartphone have been recognized by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) 2014-2015 Awards. As the only company with three consecutive EISA awards for its OLED TV technology, LG’s leadership in the home entertainment category was solidified by its latest accomplishment.
LG’s 77-inch 4K OLED TV (model 77EC980V), the winner of EISA’s European High-End TV 2014-2015 award, is the first to incorporate 4K resolution with a state-of-the-art OLED display that features WRGB technology. This combination of the latest in advanced display technology ensures sharp, detailed images and infinite contrast ratio. The ergonomically curved screen of 4K OLED TV delivers an immersive viewing experience and a wide viewing angle. And thanks to LG’s Tru 4K Engine Pro, the 77EC980V can upscale lower resolution content to near Ultra HD picture quality.
The European Smart TV 2014-2015 award winner, LG 55-inch Smart+ TV (model 55LB870V) offers crisp, clear Full HD images with accurate colors, deep contrast and a wide viewing angle. Along with its groundbreaking webOS platform, the 55LB870V provides a simple and intuitive user experience with quick, easy access to a world of entertainment. Additionally, the ultra slim bezels of LG’s CINEMA SCREEN Design give the Smart+ TV a stylish, almost borderless appearance that allows viewers to feel closer to the action on the screen.
EISA’s European HT Soundbase 2014-2015 award was bestowed on the LG SoundPlate (model LAB540). Designed to fit conveniently and unobtrusively under a TV, the slim SoundPlate is a complete all-in-one home entertainment solution. In addition to its robust 4.1 channel, 320W home theater surround sound system which includes an active wireless subwoofer, the LAB540 offers a built-in 3D Blu-ray player and Smart TV functionality. It also supports Bluetooth, allowing users to effortlessly stream audio files from external devices.
The highly acclaimed LG G3 was also honored by EISA this year, receiving the European Advanced Smartphone Award for 2014-2015. The LG G3 set a new precedent as a device developed primarily from consumer feedback and its philosophy, Simple is the New Smart. Its breathtaking Quad HD display and 13MP OIS+ camera with Laser Auto Focus were designed to quickly and easily capture and show life’s special moments. The proprietary software found in the LG G3 features innovations such as Smart Keyboard, Smart Notice and Knock CodeTM for a simply convenient, simply clever and simply safer user experience.
“It is a great thrill and honor to have our products recognized by an organization as widely respected as EISA,” said Hyun-hwoi Ha, president and CEO of LG’s Home Entertainment Company. “LG will continue to push the limits of technology and design in our effort to meet the needs of consumers around the world who look to LG to deliver the best that the industry has to offer.”
