Global TV manufacturer LG Electronics has introduced its wall-sized, super-luxury, home theatre product line, the Direct View LED (DVLED) display series.
LG Electronics’ indoor, fine- pitch DVLED Extreme Home Cinema is extreme in both name and nature, providing a range of display options from 2K to 8K resolutions and starting at 81-inches before reaching a massive 325-inches (that’s 27 feet or just over 8 metres).
Previously reserved for LG’s commercial clients, the DVLED display is now available for high-end residential installations and brings with it a long 10 year lifespan, wide viewing angles, a very high colour gamut and impressively high brightness even in rooms with lots of windows and high ambient light.
Joining the likes of Samsung’s The Wall and MicroLED TVs plus Sony’s Crystal LED display system in the hyper-luxury high-end home theatre display segment, LG’s DVLED technology creates images directly from the LED diodes rather than using them as a backlight.
LG offers over thirty DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Display packages ranging in size and resolution, including UltraStretch video-wall-style installations that deliver a 32:9 display aspect ratio ideal for displaying multiple video sources in separate windows, all controlled by webOS-compatible content management systems. There’s the more conventional 16:9 format of course, and LG’s unique webOS technology enables content such as artwork to be stored on the display without the need for Wi-Fi.
Given the exclusive nature of the Direct View LED, the Extreme Home Cinema displays cannot be purchased at stores and are available only through a new custom-installation dealer program. This sees LG provide integrator training and customer support assistance plus on-site help from an LG field engineer during installation and twice-yearly LG on site “health checks” visits for three years. There’s also an LG Connected Care software subscription which allows the integrator to remotely monitor their customer’s system performance, and a five-year limited warranty on every display. These benefits are only for the LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema models, and do not apply to all-in-one DVLED Home Cinema models that are pre-built and packaged.
As each display panel costs $30,000, this clearly isn’t a TV set you just plonk on a stand or attach to a wall bracket on the chimney breast and even the shipping process is steeped in high end trappings with the units shipped in LG-branded flight cases instead of boxes or wood crates.
“This truly is the supercar of home display technologies, offering hand-constructed quality and performance that appeals to those with luxury lifestyles who want something that is not only immersive, but also highly exclusive,” said Dan Smith, LG Electronics USA’s vice president in charge of DVLED displays. “LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Display technology is rated to last 100,000 hours before reaching half-life, meaning that it could deliver stunning visuals for over 10 years.”
The full line-up of LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Displays is now available for order.
