LG Electronics Malaysia (LG) unveiled its latest range of innovations at the LG Convention 2016 on 21 April 2016. The convention was themed ‘The Future of Home’, and introduced some of the brand’s new home entertainment and home appliance technologies that hopes to transform the way people live, work and play. Three innovations namely the LG 4K OLED TV, LG TWIN Wash™ and LG CordZero™ series were the highlights of the convention this year.
“Our customers have always been the focal point of our business. That is why we strive to offer the best innovations to them every year. The LG Convention 2016 themed ‘Future of Home’ is yet another opportunity for the brand to introduce award-winning innovations that are recognised globally for its achievements – offering superior technology, aesthetic designs, high performance and energy efficiency. A combination that will be a driving factor to continuously enrich the lives of our customers in Malaysia,” said David Oh Managing Director, LG Electronics (M) Sdn Bhd.
LG is committed to creating products that deliver energy savings without sacrificing performance or style, and is recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the 2016 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year–Sustained Excellence Award for continued leadership in protecting the environment through energy-efficient home entertainment and home appliance products.
LG is a pioneering company in OLED display technology and its new 4K OLED TV is a complete package that offers high dynamic range (HDR), infinite contrast ratio, and a slimmer design, winning the Innovation Award in CES 2016 for its superior display.
The 4K OLED TV is enhanced by high dynamic range (HDR), a technology that provides infinite contrast ratio for unmatched clarity. Colours are more realistic on LG’s new TV can display the whitest of white and darkest of black resulting to superior image quality. This ability ensures that images are displayed in perfect black as well as in vibrant colours, making LG’s 4K OLED TV capable of HDR and Dolby Vision viewing.
The LG 4K OLED TV is very different from the conventional LCD displays whereby the LED backlight locally dims the entire sections of the screen. The self-lighting pixel technology in the OLED enables each pixel on an OLED panel to switch on and off independently resulting in crisp, vibrant colors and shadow details, even when bright objects are directly next to deep, dark areas.
The LG 4K OLED TV has a premium, slim and classy design and comes with LG’s unique Picture-on-Glass concept, and an integrated Sound Bar speaker by Harmon/Kardon.
LG’s twin load washing machine features its revolutionary TWIN Wash™ System that helps users wash two loads of laundry at the same time. The TWIN Wash™ System is a new category of washing machine introduced by LG with a space-efficient mini washer in the pedestal, with overall cycle times reduced with two wash cycles happening simultaneously via its separate compartments. The TWIN Wash™ System also has the added benefit of allowing users to separate their laundry – delicate from regular clothes, whites only from coloured clothes, heavily soiled from normal wear.
LG’s new washer-dryer pair makes washing more convenience with the door aligned with the drum’s centre, positioned higher than other conventional models. It is also tilted to a more accessible six degree angle, so users don’t have to bend over as much to put clothes in or remove them. Visibility with the door closed is also increased and the newly designed sliding detergent box at the top reduces the likelihood of messy detergent spills.
In the Home Appliances segment is the LG’s CordZero™ series featuring a Canister, Handstick and Hom-Bot. The CordZero™ Canister powered by RoboSense™ is introduced for the first time in Malaysia – a technology that enables the device to follow users around during cleaning without having to drag the cylinder around on its hose. The CordZero™ Handstick features an innovative built-in lithium-ion battery Dual Power Pack™ providing 200 watts of suction power and continuous cleaning for up to 40 minutes in regular power mode.
LG’s Hom-Bot is enabled with self-learning technology, and this smart cleaner remembers your cleaning history, ensuring that every corner of your house is clean including common out-of-sight locations.
The CordZero™ series employs LG’s Smart Inverter Motor™ for superior performance with improved efficiency and durability in a compact size, without a power cord, you can clean freely from room to room without any tangling wires or the hassle of plugging and unplugging the device, helping to reduce overall cleaning time.
The LG Convention 2016 also featured other LG innovations like the SUPER UHD TV, home speakers, refrigerators, top load and bottom load washing machines, air conditioner, dishwashers and many more.
