LG unveils ThinQ at CES 2018

LG has announced what is new in the 2018 LG TV line-up. The new keyword to look for is ThinQ. ThinQ allows the implementation of hundreds of voice requests utilizing the company’s own open smart platform.

With even more smart functionality embedded in their TVs, LG customers can speak directly into the remote control to enjoy all the convenient features of today’s advanced voice assistant technology. LG’s ThinQ TVs also function as smart home hubs, offering access to other compatible smart home products such as robotic vacuum cleaners, air conditioners, air purifiers, smart lights, smart speakers and many other devices that can connect to the TV via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

LG’s ThinQ offers an enhanced interactive experience in all the company’s newest smart TV lineup, including OLED and SUPER UHD TV models by employing Natural Language Processing (NLP) to deliver intelligent voice-activated control and connectivity based on LG’s own deep learning technology, DeepThinQ. With a streamlined setup process, viewers can easily and quickly connect to gaming consoles and external soundbars.

Users can search for information, images or videos featuring specific content by making a verbal request through the TV’s remote control such as “show me all the movies this actor has starred in” or “show me yoga videos”.

LG TVs with ThinQ support services based on Electronic Program Guide (EPG) to deliver information in real time or change to a channel that offers the content requested. Instruct the TV to “search for the soundtrack of this movie” or “turn off the TV when this program is over” without repeating the name of the program or entering a specific time.

Also now in 2018 LG TVs is LG's Alpha 9 processor powering the company’s OLED TVs, viewers will experience further improvements in picture quality. Selected LG Nano Cell SUPER UHD TVs employ Full-Array Local Dimming (FALD) back-lighting to provide deeper blacks and enhanced colours, as well as nuanced shadow details for life-like images.

The LG Alpha 9 intelligent processor provides true-to-life images with rich colors, sharpness, and depth for more realism. A core innovative element of the Alpha 9 is the four-step process of noise reduction, which boasts twice as many steps compared to conventional techniques. This algorithm allows for greater finesse in noise reduction, improving the clarity of images affected by distracting artifacts and enabling more effective rendering of smooth gradations.

2018 OLED and selected SUPER UHD TVs from LG feature 4K Cinema HDR, which introduces a cinematic experience to the home, regardless of the format. LG’s 2018 OLED and select SUPER UHD TVs process HDR images dynamically frame-by-frame using LG’s proprietary algorithm, Enhanced Dynamic Tone mapping.

The first 2018 LG TV models are expected to be released in March and more coming in June. We will learn more about LG's 2018 TV line-up at the LG media event on Monday, Jan. 8 at 8 am PT. The CES 2018 kicks off officially on January 9 in Las Vegas. Read the latest CES 2018 news.
