(September 16, 2021) LG Electronics' latest announcement isn't just big, it's ginormous. The display manufacturer known for high-quality OLED TVs is taking on the high-end residential segment with a new Direct View LED (DVLED) series capable of filling massive spaces with dazzling visuals.
LG's DVLED Extreme Home Cinema can be installed in two different aspect ratios. The 16:9 version offers sizes ranging from 81" to 325" diagonal, while an "UltraStretch" video wall introduces a 32:9 aspect ratio that's perfect for showing multiple video sources (like live sports).
The technology uses 2 million to 33 million individual LED diodes (depending on resolution) to deliver high levels of brightness, wide viewing angles, massive amounts of colors, and a long lifespan of performance. And unlike projector-based displays, DVLED's capabilities shine in rooms with lots of windows and high-ambient light.
LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema displays are only available through a new custom-installation dealer program and cannot be purchased at stores. To help simplify installation, LG has packaged over thirty DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Displays ranging in sizes and resolutions. All systems are shipped in LG-branded flight cases, not boxes or crates, for optimum protection during transportation.
Installations of the LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Displays include integrator training, customer support assistance, and on-site help from an LG field engineer during installation. Follow-up services include three years of bi-annual LG on-site visit "health checks," an LG Connected Care software subscription allowing the integrator to remotely monitor their customer's system performance, and a five-year limited warranty. LG says the value of these services lands at $30,000 and only applies to LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema models; pre-built and packaged all-in-one DVLED Home Cinema models are excluded.
"This truly is the supercar of home display technologies, offering hand-constructed quality and performance that appeals to those with luxury lifestyles who want something that is not only immersive but also highly exclusive," said Dan Smith, LG Electronics USA's vice president in charge of DVLED displays. "LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Display technology is rated to last 100,000 hours before reaching half-life, meaning that it could deliver stunning visuals for over 10 years."
MSRP ranges from $70,000 up to $1.7MM based on the size, pixel pitch, and resolution of the display. All versions of LG's DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Displays are available for order now.
