LG Electronics’ (LG) innovations in AI technology and design have earned the company recognition from the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA). LG’s AI ThinQ-enabled products including LG OLED TV, LG SUPER UHD TV and LG XBOOM were honoured for their performance in categories assessing premium picture quality, artificial intelligence performance and sound excellence.
The LG OLED TV AI ThinQ (model OLED65E8) was named the EISA PREMIUM OLED TV 2018-2019, the seventh consecutive win for the company’s OLED technology. The TV was praised for its picture quality powered by the α (Alpha) 9 processor, and its artificial intelligence functionality.
In addition, the LG SUPER UHD TV AI ThinQ (model 65SK9500) was recognised as the EISA ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TV 2018-2019, with LG’s AI ThinQ platform and Google Assistant built in. With LG’s proprietary AI ThinQ, users can control the TV, connect easily to external devices, switch picture mode and search for content. The latest advanced voice assistant technology embedded in the TV is achieved by employing Natural Language Processing (NLP) to deliver intelligent voice-activated control and connectivity based on LG’s exclusive deep learning technology, the company says.
EISA also named LG’s premium AI speaker, the LG XBOOM AI ThinQ (model WK7), as its EISA ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE LOUDSPEAKER 2018-2019. With Google Assistant integrated directly into the device for quick setup, LG XBOOM AI ThinQ responds to a user’s commands without the need for a remote control or smartphone. As a hub, the speaker can control Google Assistant-enabled smart home devices as well as LG home appliances compatible with LG ThinQ.
LG Home Entertainment Company president Brian Kwon commented: “LG is proud to be recognised by such renowned industry experts for its commitment to innovation in AI technologies. LG has been and continues to be a key global player in AI, offering customers a new level of intelligence at home, aligned with our mission to make their lives more convenient through the implementation of forward-thinking technology.”
