This monster from the Korean tech giant boasts a MicroLED display, which offers self-emissive pixel advantages of OLEDs without the traditional materials. This means that the set’s overall brightness gets a noticeable boost and that it does a valiant job of warding off those pesky annoyances of image retention and burn-in.
Already launched in key markets in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, the MAGNIT promises to “deliver groundbreaking picture quality and durability with LG’s proprietary Black Coating display technology as well as streamlined installation with its clever block-assembly design,” according to a press release.
There are also hefty improvements to contrast and color accuracy with the next-generation panel technology, while the wide-angle viewing is considered top-notch, especially for a giant screen such as this.
“The versatile LG MAGNIT is ideal for luxury consumers seeking a premium, large-scale display for the home with 163 inches of 4K resolution for enjoying favorite movies, series and sports,” the release said.
“Featuring LG’s webOS smart signage platform for intuitive navigation and control of the many useful functions, including features and presets, LG MAGNIT’s superb picture quality is boosted by an AI-powered (Alpha) image processor found in state-of-the-art LG TVs that intelligently analyzes content and source and automatically optimizes visual output in real-time.”
Moreover, the LG MAGNIT has the ability to smoothly send and receive signals wirelessly via the company’s non-contact connector technology. The eye-pleasing block-assembly design allows the power to be sent to pin connectors that are on the edges of the LED cabinet hub. And for a 163-inch HDTV, the number of wires being used is not intimidating at all.
“It’s always exciting to present true innovation in LED signage and we are particularly thrilled to introduce our LG MAGNIT lineup at this time,” Paik Ki-mun, senior vice president and head of the Information Display business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company, said in a release.
“With its combination of superior picture quality, expandability and convenient setup, LG MAGNIT is a great MicroLED signage solution for a wide variety of commercial and public spaces, including convention centers, corporate and hotel lobbies, luxury boutiques, broadcast studios, control rooms, exhibition halls, and museums.”
There’s no firm price tag yet from LG at the moment, but you can send an inquiry online to purchase the MAGNIT.
