LG 65-inch Ultra HD TV

LG 65-inch Ultra HD TV

The ULTRA HD Experience

LG Ultra High Definition 4K TV takes image clarity to a whole new level with pixel resolution that's four times greater than Full HD. Whether you're watching sports, movies or playing games, the viewing experience is breathtaking. Brilliantly true-to-life. And now, LG Ultra HD 4K TV is truly personalized, with brand new 65" Class and 55" Class editions joining our 84" Class flagship model.

4K Resolution*

High definition reaches the stratosphere with LG Ultra HD 4K TV. Until you see it for yourself, it's hard to imagine the flawless picture quality that 8.3 million pixels can bring you. Images are amazingly clear and vivid even when you're mere inches away. LG Ultra HDTV with 4K resolution is the new benchmark of uncompromising home entertainment.
*4K/UHD content delivery standards still being developed.

4K Technology

To understand 4K, consider first current HDTV, which offers 1,920-twenty pixels—the tiny dots that make up the picture—across the width of the screen. The more pixels, the sharper the image. Now, imagine a TV that doubles the number of pixels across, to 3,840, which is approximately four thousand, or "4K." Vertical scanning lines are double as well, from 1080p to 2160p.

The Benefits of 4K
4K resolution is effectively four times that of Full HD, so you'll see the picture, not the pixels, even up close. The first time you see it, you might not believe your eyes. Movies will be more detailed than you've ever seen on a television before, and sports in 4K will make you feel like you're at the game.

4.1 Channel Sliding Speaker**

No surprise, the room-filling sound of LG's Ultra HDTV is every bit as impressive – and innovative – as its 4K resolution. A unique sliding speaker bar recedes when you're not watching TV, maintaining a look of pristine minimalism that enhances every setting. Sound good? Wait until you hear it.
**Feature only available on LA9700.


Enjoy the benefits of 4K resolution today. LG's Tru-ULTRA HD Engine upscales the picture through a 4-step data analysis that enhances the details of all broadcasts, movies, sports and games, giving you the viewing experience you expect from an Ultra HD 4K TV.


Introducing LG's most advanced LED technology. LG's Micro Pixel Control incorporates up to 144 blocks of LEDs throughout the back of the panel that can individually brighten and dim each segment of the screen. This results in the deepest, darkest and most natural colors for superior picture performance.
*Feature only available on LA9700.

IPS Panel
LG's state-of-the-art screen panel provides a 178° wide viewing angle that makes every location the best seat in the house. Family and friends will enjoy vibrant color and virtually blur-free pictures clear across the room.

Smart TV's Limitless Content*
Ultra HDTV is the ultimate showcase for premium content like Netflix® and Hulu Plus®, which you'll now be enjoying in upscaled 4K resolution for razor sharp clarity. With LG's intuitive Magic Remote, accessing content is as effortless as pointing and clicking, or using LG's Voice Mate™*, which responds instantly to any spoken request…even when you're speaking in a natural conversational manner.

Cinema 3D in 4K Resolution*
"Awesome!" barely scratches the surface. With ULTRA HD Cinema 3D you're experiencing four times the resolution of Full HD 1080p, so every 3D effect is eye-opening unbelievable. You even have the option of converting 2D content to 3D whenever you please. LG makes it easy to share the excitement with battery-free glasses that are lightweight and affordable.
*For a small percentage of the population, the viewing of stereoscopic 3D video technology may cause discomfort such as headaches, dizziness or nausea. If you experience any symptoms, discontinue using the 3D functionality and contact your health care provider.

New smartphone competes for business market

New smartphone competes for business market

MANILA -- Gionee Communication Equipment Co. Ltd. is making its presence felt in the country by introducing an innovative smartphone meant to address the needs of businessmen.

“Globalization has ushered in changes in how businesses are conducted. These days, it is no longer enough for businessmen to have a telephone or laptop; smart phone that would enable them to accomplish tasks even outside of the office has become more of a necessity,” Gionee Communication said in a statement.

Gionee introduced recently ELIFE E6, a smartphone packed with features like an NQ Mobile Security and Anti-Virus. Businessmen who are into mobile banking will no longer have to worry about the security of their information and data, the firm said.

The NQ Mobile Security and Anti-Virus protects the smartphone from malicious websites when surfing the Internet.

These also give users a chance to recover their smart phone should it get stolen with its anti-theft feature that will alert the owner’s friends that another individual used the phone.

Others advantage of the smartphone are its screen size and Smart Gesture features, which allow the user to answer calls just by bringing the phone to his or her ear. Users may also answer or refuse the call by moving their hand up or down the sensor.

A user can also just slide their hands over the letters of the word they want to input on their SMS.

The ELIFE E6 is the flagship smartphone of Gionee, which was unveiled in the Philippines via a media launch early last month.

Ressence Type 3

Ressence Type 3


The Ressence Type 3 transports time from the dial to the crystal. The orbiting indications are bathed in a fluid that refracts light like air, so that the indications appear to be displayed directly onto the sapphire crystal – closer to the eye of the beholder. The high-contrast white indicators against the black dial appear to be projected onto the top crystal as if onto a screen. Type 3 offers a tangible feeling of being able to touch time itself.

The indications and their mechanisms are mounted inside a bubble crafted from extremely tough, anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The complication and indications follow the shape of the crystal. The mechanism (28 gears, 57 jewels) is enclosed in an upper compartment filled with a naphtha-type liquid that has a more similar index of refraction to the sapphire crystal than air does. Refraction bends light when it passes from one material to another, e.g. air-to-glass or glass-to-air. With the fluid-filled dial indications, refraction is greatly minimised, which tricks the brain into seeing the dial in two-dimensions rather than three. A thermal valve automatically adjusts for any expansion or contraction of the fluid.

Discs displaying hours, minutes, seconds and days revolve under the domed sapphire crystal, while the date is read from the perimeter of the dial at 6 o’clock. The indications discs continually revolve, as does the whole dial itself. The face of the watch is constantly changing in the same way that a human face is transformed by each passing emotion.

The dial and indications are curved (radius 125mm) and treated with DLC (diamond-like carbon). All the components are titanium with the exception of the gears. The indications, engraved in the discs are filled with Super-LumiNova (white, grey and orange). The display system has been invented developed and patented by Ressence and comprises 28 gears and 57 jewels (out of 82 jewels in total), three offset bi-axial satellites and an exterior date ring. The upper module also includes a water-resistant seal, a shock absorption system and is totally filled with fluid. A thermostatic valve system allows for any expansion or contraction of the liquid due to the ambient temperature. By virtue of the convex curve of the dial, the angle of the satellite indications is approximately 3° for the hours and 4.75° for the seconds.


Ressence design is characterised by purity and minimalism. This quest for pared-down design includes the process of dematerialising the timepiece; a process illustrated by the elimination of traditional hands and by the invisible fluid technology used to project the indications. And by removing the crown, the TYPE 3 opens up a whole new chapter in this quest for simplicity. The sapphire case back fulfils the functions of the crown with quadrants on the case back replacing different crown positions. The Type 3 is wound up by turning the case back. To change the date, it is simply necessary to make a longer rotation through 200° in order to arrive at the date quadrant. The hour is set by starting from the neutral position and turning in the direction indicated. A gravitational gearing system allows time setting to be disconnected by simply inverting the watch.
