LG Electronics made some interesting announcements at CES 2023. The company unveiled the second-generation LG SIGNATURE home appliance lineup and as if that was not enough it also announced its first OLED TV (Model 3) with wireless transmission.
The 97-inch OLED TV is the world’s first consumer TV to offer 4K 120Hz video and audio transmitted through a zero connect box. The box houses all the circuitry to send sound and picture signals to the TV wirelessly.
OLED provides the best picture quality available, and what this means is that this TV is perfect for gaming and also for binge-watching nights on your favorite shows.
Unlike conventional TVs, where all input ports for connecting external devices are located on the rear or sides, this TV comes with a separate Zero Connect box that sends video and audio signals wirelessly to LG’s cinematic, 97-inch screen. Because it can be placed away from the TV, the Zero Connect box helps to create a cleaner, distraction-free viewing environment and gives users greater freedom to arrange their space.
The box comes with multiple ports for plugging in commonly used HDMI devices, such as cable/satellite set-top boxes and gaming consoles and can also connect wirelessly with compatible soundbars for richer, more powerful audio and additional cable-free convenience. Along with offering users more freedom when curating their space, the M3 and its Zero Connect box allows users to easily install the new LG OLED TV without entangled cables.
LG says its wireless solution leverages state-of-the-art technologies to provide reliable video and audio transmission to the M3’s self-lit OLED screen, allowing users to enjoy content at 4K 120Hz and clear, crisp sound without interruption or degradation of quality.
To ensure the seamless transfer of data from the box to the TV, the company developed an algorithm that instantly identifies the optimal transmission path. The algorithm also helps to minimize transmission errors or disruptions as it can recognize changes in the immediate environment – such as people or pets moving around the room – and switch paths accordingly. Additionally, for maximum signal strength, the box’s antenna can be easily rotated and/or tilted to align with the TV’s location. For maximum usability, the Zero Connect box is voice recognition-enabled, meaning users can turn on and manage the M3 and connected devices using simple, spoken commands.
The new OLED TV M3 delivers superior picture and sound quality as well as greater flexibility to install and connect.
Aside from the M3 wireless transmission TV, LG also introduced at CES 2023.
