LG’s OLED has been hailed by content creators, producers and distributors for its self-lit pixels, accurate color reproduction among other unique features, making OLED TV the director’s choice in Hollywood. The electronics company has been honored at the 72nd Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards for producing screens used for reference displays by major Hollywood movie studios.
Established by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in 1948, the Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards honor innovation in broadcast technology and recognize significant contributions to television engineering.
LG OLED TV has been credited for optimized video processing, best-in-class calibration, high degree of interoperability with support for a large number of video and audio formats, and various other features developed specifically to meet the needs of professional content creators.
By being able to render motion as precisely as they reproduce colors, LG OLED TVs are also a common feature in live sports production facilities around the world. Praised by consumers and industry experts, LG OLED TV delivers superior image quality with its self-emissive pixel technology, backlight-free structure, and independent pixel-dimming control. Impressive contrast ratio, deeper blacks, wide viewing angle and fast response times give LG OLED an edge in the premium TV category.
This latest recognition comes on the heels of other award-winning LG innovations in the rapidly evolving field of smart, connected, ultra-high-definition televisions. Recently, LG Electronics received a Technical Emmy for developing and deploying HTML5 for a full TV experience as well as an Engineering Excellence Award from the Hollywood Professional Association (HPA) for developing and deploying 1D & 3D LUT based hardware level CalMAN calibration with its OLED TVs.
Previously, LG’s U.S. R&D subsidiary, Zenith Electronics LLC, was awarded Technical Emmy Awards for such pioneering developments as the first wireless TV remote control, industry standards for HDTV and stereo TV, and flat-screen displays.
