LG's best and smartest consumer-ready TV is the LG SIGNATURE OLED TV – a continuation of the W7 OLED last year that we loved, but with a new Alpha 9 "processor. The TV is equipped with a 4.2 Dolby Atmos soundbar, attached via a flat cable that runs inside the TV itself – the latter still measures 3.8 mm from front to back.
It's hard not to get lost after you've spent time with the LG Signature OLED TV. It is slim, fits seamlessly on the wall and comes with a Dolby Atmos soundbar. LG calls the design-aesthetic & # 39; Wallpaper TV & # 39; and, being placed in front of a non-techie, it would definitely create the illusion that a beautiful art display would be flushed against the wall. The bezelloze screen further creates the illusion of a painting, with stunning colors and perfect blacks.
The use of the soundbar by the LG SIGNATURE OLED TV also serves as the primary source for routing cables in and out of the TV. This solution conceals those unsightly HDMI cables from all our sources and gives the TV a nice, clean look to your wall. It also uses a magnetic mounting mechanism that is extremely easy to set up.
We have often thrown over the inky levels and colorful images produced for the goodness of OLED panel technology. The LG SIGNATURE OLED TV also offers extensive support for all four types of formats with a high dynamic range – HDR10, Dolby Vision, Advanced HDR from Technicolor and HLG. This works together with LG's proprietary HDR Pro and HLG Pro technology, which works on a scene-by-scene to find the right balance between low points and high lights.
New this year is the use of the Alpha 9 processor by LG for better contours between areas of bright light and darkness (such as an image of a moon in a dark night) and movement processing. Not only is it brighter, it better holds the action, and keeps the images clear while the camera moves from photo to recording.
The Alpha 9 processor also makes a huge leap in the look-up table – a term you will hear a lot from LG. A lookup table is a way to color the correct source input. With the aid of the so-called 3D reference table, colors can be corrected on an individual basis. For example, if a blue is too blue, it can be made less blue without affecting the green or red tones in the same image.
