LG TV CES Show 2013
LED TVs and Google TVs from LG
by Robert Wiley and Jack Burden, editors/reviewers
LG focused a lot of their booths attention on their LG OLED TVs offerings as well as some UHD 4K, showing many different qualitative displays about how picture quality is produced on their OLED TVs. There is a large display of the curved OLED TVs to show how “flexible” the technology is and also it made a very eye catching display.
The 55EM9600 boasts amazing black levels and color accuracy on this OLED TV
There was a large number of LG Cinema Screen design displays on one wall, all showing passive 3D technology on-screen. In fact, nearly all the displays in LG's booth had passive 3D content on-board – even OLED and 4K TVs. There were large tanks of available passive 3D glasses for guests to grab to view the entire display. One display of a 4K UHD passive 3D display was especially improssive. It was from animated 4K 3D content.
Here is the redesigned Magic Remote for 2013. The biggest additions are the mic and mic button for engaging voice recognition controls
LG showed their new Google TV with QWERTY keyboard remote on one side and Magic Remote controls on the other side. This is for the 55GA7900 and 47GA7900 series TVs. The other Google TV series also has the new remote, which works very well to speed browsing and Apps control. One model in this series is the 50GA6400. The Google TV options avail consumers that are familiar with and enjoy Android Apps all the choices that those Apps provide. It's another Smart TV offering to go along with the current suite.

Notably missing from LG CES 2013 TV booth: LG showed no plasma TVs at their booth at CES 2013 but will produce a couple of models for 2013. In LED, the company steered clear of local dimming LED backlighting technology, opting to concentrate on edge-lit.
