Yesterday marked the 40th anniversary of the Intramuros Admin, the government tasked with the restoration, development, and promotion of the place that has become an iconic piece of Philippine culture and history.
To celebrate the momentous occasion, a special event held at the recently opened Museo de Intramuros, and together with LG Philippines, which made its presence felt by showcasing its newest OLED TVs, creating a harmonious combination of our rich history with tomorrow’s technology.
To show its support in adding a creative touch on how Philippine history is showcased, LG Philippines donated 6 units of its TVs to the museum. Mr. Inkwun Heo, LG Philippines Managing Director, highlighted that 2019 also marked the 70th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the Philippines and the Repbulic of Korea.
“Throughout the seven decades of friendship between the 2 nations, we’ve been championing the importance of culture. We at LG Philippines remain committed in doing our part to preserve and showcase Philippine history. We hope that through the integration of our industry-leading OLED TV technology with riveting historically significant content, we are able to communicate to audiences, both old and new, the importance of Intramuros and Philippine history as a whole.”
– Mr. Iknwun Heo, LG Philippines Managing Director
With close collaboration with TBA Studios, the folks behind the hit films Heneral Luna and Goyo, a special AVP was also made for LG, featuring the Museo de Intramuros. Director JP Habac and Cinematographer Pong Ignacio from TBA were personally awe-struck with how vivid the color rendition is on the LG OLED TV.
“Every bit of detail is seen the way it’s supposed to be seen. The dynamic range is really something to behold.”
– Director JP Habac, TBA Studios
LG’s newest line of TVs is powered by deep learning technology now embedded in the new a9 Gen2 and a7 Gen2 processors. This allows the TV to dramatically optimize both visuals and sound for every content.
You can now talk to your TV by pressing the microphone button on the remote. LG’s ThinQ AI listens to your commands and executes them, even those based on earlier conversations. Tasks range from simple TV controls, to weather-related questions, and even follow-up questions based on your initial command.
“This is as smart as smart TVs can get. LG is ahead of the game in pushing the boundaries of innovation and technology.”
– James Deakin, LG’s Brand Ambassador
The flagship model uses an award-winning OLED Panel Technology that works seamlessly with Deep Learning Technology. On the other hand, sound is boosted by an intelligent algorithm that can mix up two channel audio, delivering 5.1 virtual surround sound.
HDR is possible with the help of Dolby Atmos for delivering incredibly realistic sound as the TV intelligently fine-tunes content compatible with Dolby Vision. The TV supports HDMI 2.1, which means users can enjoy 4K content at 60 FPS. It also supports Low Latency Mode (ALLM), Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC).
With LG’s flagship OLED TV, the company takes another step ahead in their vision of a truly interconnected smart home.
