In a historical perspective, the flat panel TV is still a relatively new thing, even though most of us own one or maybe even a few. But how did our TVs look 5 years ago? In a series of galleries FlatpanelsHD takes a look at 5 years of TV design by every major TV maker. Last week we featured Sony and this Friday we take a look at LG.
Every Friday FlatpanelsHD takes at look a TV makersâ€™ design tradition. Check back in again on next Friday.
LG: 5 years of TV design
In FlatpanelsHDâ€™s series of TV design galleries we started with Sony and this Friday we dive into 5 years of LG designs. The South Korean electronics manufacturer - often referred to as Samsungâ€™s smaller brother - experienced extreme growth when the LCD market took off. LG has never been afraid to try something alternative and it has been reflected in LGâ€™s TV designs during the years.
This Friday we take a look of 5 years of LG TV design
A few years back LG was a master in getting attention at fairs and trade shows around the world. At IFA 2008 LG unveiled the provocative red line of TVs with a hole in the center. Next year, LG showcased an ultrathin wireless TV with an external media box. In the last few years, LGâ€™s Borderless design philosophy has spawned TVs with extremely slim bezels.
The highlights of LGâ€™s TV designs have been the 31-inch OLED-TV and the LM960V released in 2012. And later in 2012, LG aims to push TV design boundaries even further with the unrealistically thin 55-inch OLED-TV.
