CES 2018: LG To Showcase ThinQ AI, Advanced Image Processor For TVs

Naturally, LG will be showing off all of these TVs at its booth at CES in Las Vegas next week.

As per the official post on LG NewsRoom, CES 2018 could witness the South-Korean's newest OLED and SUPER UHD TVs.

With Google already available in Australia and Alexa coming very soon, one can assume these features will make it into Aussie TVs, but there's no official word from LG on Aussie availability or pricing. This included LG's own voice assistant.

Apart from these categories, what's interesting about the new TVs is that this year they will be getting Google Assistant support.

The LG brand was established in 1995. LG is serious about its Smart Ecosystem.

LG seems to be offering assistance (pun intended) for both platforms. This artificial intelligence (AI) processor has been integrated into the TVs helping to get them even smarter. This includes things like searching for a soundtrack for the now playing movie.

ThinQ owners will also be able to communicate with other smart devices in the home via voice commands on TV remote.

The AI processor keeps on learning the voice requests that the TV can't handle, for which it runs the Google Assistant software. With 2016 global sales of Dollars 47.9 billion (KRW 55.4 trillion), LG comprises four business units - Home Appliance & Air Solution, Mobile Communications, Home Entertainment and Vehicle Components ― and is one of the world's leading producers of TVs, mobile devices, air conditioners, washing machines and refrigerators. The top of the line models will also be equipped with Alpha 9 processors which is the start towards achieving HFR, with frame rates that go all the way up to 120FPS which is the first of its kind in a home television. LG says that its 2018 OLED sets will all support the technology and some of its Super UHD TVs will, too.

In addition to detailing its AI efforts, LG says that some of its new TVs will feature a new Alpha 9 image processor capable of 120fps, making it better for content with fast-moving action (like sports and action movies).

Specifically, the point of HFR is to improve motion handling in picture performance for 4K content in particular and most of all from broadcast sources.

We will know more about LG and other products when CES 2018 kicks off from the 7 of January 2018 to the 12 of January 2018.
