LG Partners Google On OLED Marketing

Global leader in Home Entertainment and Consumer Electronics, LG Electronics is ratcheting up its marketing efforts to foster its organic light emitting diode (OLED) TV business with an aim to outpace rivals in the world’s premium TV market.

It’s no longer news that LG Electronics, Nigeria’s No.1 Leading brand in Consumer Electronics, introduced into the Nigerian Market, the World’s First Curved OLED TV some years back which has created a huge vacuum for competing brands to catch up with.

In line with this strategy, LG announced that it would join hands with Google to promote LG’s premium OLED TVs.

“(Through the joint promotion) LG will have potential consumers experience the superb picture quality and true values of LG OLED TVs and enhance the firm’s brand image,” said Kim Ki-wan, the head of LG’s global marketing division.

Targeting to secure 100 million customers worldwide, LG will try to deploy marketing strategies tailored for each step of the sales cycle- building rapport with customers, increasing brand recognition and closing deals- on top of Google’s digital marketing platforms such as YouTube, according to Korean firm.

“Google has been supporting marketers to communicate effectively with customers online through Google’s advertising and marketing solutions,” John Lee, chief executive of Google Korea, said.

“The company will continue to help global firms such as LG to promote their products and the values of the products around the world,” he said.

The latest collaboration is also aimed at upping the ante against LG’s rivals in the TV market, especially its compatriots Samsung. Since putting a hold on the production of large screen OLED TVs in 2013, Samsung has been focusing on liquid crystal display-based UHD TVs.

Most recently Samsung has been rolling out SUHD TVs with the back lights of the displays applied with nano-crystal to improve the colour gamut and brightness.

Not to be outdone, LG Electronics and LG Display business arm of LG Group, have been going full throttle to grow the OLED TV and display businesses.

Yeo Sang-duk, President of LG Display’s OLED business unit, emphasised the importance of the OLED display business for the company itself and the domestic display industry as a whole at a press meeting in May by saying “OLED is the ultimate display technology”. He anticipated that Samsung would resume the production of OLED TVs, echoing with other market experts.

The LG CURVED OLED TV has indeed ushered in a new era in TV technology as most leading brands only recently  rolled-out their own version of the TV.

Unlike traditional, Synthetic LED’s, OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) uses an organic, carbon-based compound that emits its own light when hit with an electric current. A thin-film transistor (TFT) backplane switches each specific pixel on and off and light passes through a combination of filters to reproduce amazing high-definition images. Since OLED displays do not require a backlight, pixels that are switched off are truly black, so OLED achieves deeper black levels and a higher contrast ratio when compared to LCD and LED TV’s. This revolutionary material enables drastically thinner, lighter televisions, with truly breathtaking resolution.

The precise curve of the screen ensures that your eyes are equally distant from all parts of the screen, providing the most natural and immersive viewing experience. The innovative technology of OLED TV permits a simpler internal structure. This means the TV is unbelievably lightweight and pencil-thin, making it slimmer than your Smart Phone.

There is no distracting bezel around the picture frame of course, it’s the picture quality that really stands out. The LG CURVED OLED TV delivers cinema-quality 3D and 2D-to-3D glasses for quite astounding home viewing. To make you have plenty to watch, LG’s exclusive 3D world app now delivers more 3D content than ever before.
