LG took the stage first on the press day at Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2013
to announce 55-inch and 65-inch Ultra HD TVs
along with an entry level 55-inch OLED TV.
With no details on the pricing of Ultra HD TVs, LG aims to take on the challenge of the lack of availability of '4K' content by working with the industry partners to have '4K' TVs by the time of the commercial availability of the UHD TVs.
LG also unveiled the entry-level OLED TV at the event that it has priced at $12,000. It will be available in the US market in the month of March.
The company also showcased the convenience-enhancing features of its Smart Home Service. As per LG, this advanced system combines the sophisticated media sharing technologies of SmartShare with the integrated home appliance management capabilities of SmartControl, enabling the user to take complete command of their smart home environment.
"The Smart Home Service is a perfect example of LG's commitment to bringing true technology convergence into the consumer's home," said Dr. Scott Ahn, Chief Technology Officer of LG Electronics. "SmartShare offers a variety of ways to share digital content between devices.
SmartControl lets the user take charge of their LG home appliance and entertainment products from a single location using the SmartControl application for smartphones and Smart TVs."Gadgets & Gizmos is at Las Vegas for CES 2013 at the invitation of Panasonic.
