LG's 2016 OLEDs are all here
, brimming with features and sporting the best black levels in the industry. Today, the company announced US pricing and availability of its US OLED offerings. All of the new models support HDR and offer compatibility with both Dolby Vision and HDR10 formats. These TVs have all earned an "Ultra HD Premium" certification by the UHD Alliance.
The new models include the flat-panel B6 and the curved C6 series. Already released models include the LG Signature G6 and the LG E6 series. David VanderWaal—vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA—said "Our 2016 OLED TVs combine our most advanced TV technologies with future-forward, stunning designs to elevate the TV experience to an entirely new level. And now, with two HDR formats, content has never looked more immersive or more lifelike."
Being HDR-capable TVs, these models all feature 10-bit panels and 10-bit processing power—they can render more than a billion possible color variations.
Further elaborating on these OLEDs support for both Dolby Vision and HDR10, Roland Vlaicu—Dolby Laboratories vice president, consumer imaging—stated that "Dolby Vision supports and builds on top of HDR10... with a combination of brighter highlights, increased contrast, ultra-vivid colors and sharper details." He continued by noting "Dolby Vision is already the preferred format for filmmakers and content providers with all seven major movie studios supporting the creation and release of Dolby Vision movies in the cinema and many streaming content providers defaulting to Dolby Vision as the preferred HDR format for the home."
The new models come with the latest webOS Smart TV platform: webOS 3.0. The 2016 LG OLED TV line contains four series—B6, C6, E6 and LG Signature G6. There are eight models in all, with three screen sizes: 55 inches, 65 inches and 77 inches. All series are available now.
