LG Electronics is expanding its portfolio of 4K UHD Hotel TVs from entry-level to premium models, all with four times the resolution of full HD and high dynamic range capability.

LG is expanding its 4K Ultra HD Hotel TV lineup to two dozen models in six screen sizes across seven series. Led by the new 77-inch class LG OLED Hotel TV, LG's 2018 premium lineup now features webOS 4.0, the upgraded smart TV platform that makes switching between content options, including broadcast TV, streaming services and external devices, simple and fast.  

LG is providing hoteliers a broad array of in-room solutions that elevate the guest experience with picture quality due to UHD's 8-million-plus pixels, according to Michael Kosla, VP of hospitality, LG Electronics USA Business Solutions.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

“This year marks an inflection point as the majority of TVs purchased by American consumers will be 4K UHD TVs. And we’re seeing the hospitality industry embrace 4K Ultra HD, too," Kosla said in a statement. “Our cutting-edge technologies demonstrated at HITEC are specifically designed for the hospitality space, and our new 77-inch OLED TV represents an entirely new way for luxury hotels and resorts to provide an unmatched guest experience.”

The new 77-inch LG OLED Hotel TV (model 77EU960H), and the 65- and 55-inch class size models in the EU960H series display perfect black, incredible color and virtually limitless contrast ratios. LG's suite of premium 4K UHD Hotel TVs also includes the 65-inch commercial LG OLED Wallpaper Hotel TV, model 65WU960H. Just 3.855 millimeters (less than 1/16th of an inch) thin, it looks like it becomes one with the wall. LG OLED Hotel TVs for 2018 are designed to deliver an unmatched entertainment experience through support of Dolby Atmos (4.2 channel) audio and Dolby Vision and HDR10 capability.

Complementing the LG OLED Hotel TV lineup are LCD/LED 4K UHD Hotel TVs featuring the Pro:Centric Smart IPTV platform: the 49-, 55-, 65-, and 75-inch class UU770H series and the 43-, 49-, 55-, and 65-inch class UU670H series. All models 55-inches and smaller will now also feature a redesigned table stand for greater security. LG's customizable Pro:Centric Smart IPTV's are built on LG's award-winning webOS platform (new webOS 4.0), enabling embedded over-the-top smart applications, content sharing and remote diagnostics and monitoring for optimal performance and ease of use. New to these smart TV models is the VLAN tagging feature to help system integrators segment traffic on the network.

In addition to the integrated Pro:Centric Smart IPTV TVs, LG also offers a high-performance Pro:Centric Smart set-top box, the STB-5500, which supports 4K UHD resolution video decoding and output, as well as a built-in 4K upscaler and embedded smart apps.
