- “We want LG to be the top name in home entertainment. To make that happen we’ve listened closely to our customers and invested heavily in product development,” said Simon Kang, CEO and President of LG Home Entertainment Company.
“The BORDERLESS TVs we’re introducing at IFA 2009 show exactly what we’ve accomplished, setting new standards in home entertainment. These TVs look better than any others on the market and the viewing experience they provide is second-to-none.”
