Sony, Sharp and Philips are on the bandwagon and will release TVs based on Android TV in 2015. Android TV combines streaming services, apps, and a game console in one platform. It will also be available in small TV streamer boxes.
LG has a range of new OLED TVs coming out in 2014 as well as new Ultra HD and Full HD TVs. LG is also introducing a new webOS-based Smart TV platform that looks promising. Could 2014 be the year where LG establishes itself as the leading Korean TV innovator?

Nano creates beautiful pictures & slim designs

LG believes that two of the most important factors when choosing a new TV are picture quality and slim and elegant design. With the two new model ranges, LW9500 and LW7700, LG claims to have exactly that.

The TVs are based on LG's new Nano Full LED technology. Nano ensures fantastic picture quality with extremely deep black levels. In addition, Nano technology also makes LG’s new TVs ultra-thin and power efficient.

LG calls their new technology Nano because it involves a thin (10^-9 m) nano-film on the panel. This film aims to distribute light evenly to ensure that no clouding or bleeding occurs but it also enables LG to create extremely slim TVs. The two main advantages of Nano technology are:

1. A backlight with 2300 LEDs, compared to 300 for edge LED based TV or up to 1200 for LGs’ Full LED technology.
2. Micro Pixel Control technology (LED local dimming) that controls light in up to 280 zones compared to 240 zones on previous models. This ensures very high contrast and very deep black levels.
