LG Gifts the National Museum of the Philippines with the World's #1 OLED TV and Debuts OLED Wallpaper TV (W8) at National Museum of Natural History

LG Philippines salutes the National Museum of the Philippines and its National Museum of Natural History and celebrates one of the world's riches marine ecosystems. 
Jongnam An, Vice President – Home Entertainment at LG Electronics Philippines and Inkwun Heo, Managing Director – LG Electronics Philippines present National Museum of the Philippines Director Jeremy Barns with three top-of-the-line units of the brand new OLED TVs as LG TV Philippines donates to the National Museum of Natural History.

For its 30th anniversary celebrations, and further its CSR thrust of promoting education, showcasing technology and design,  LG gifts the National Museum of the Philippines with the world's #1 OLED TV. During the event, LG unveiled the 77″ OLED Wallpaper TV (W8) amidst the National Museum of Natural History’s soaring columns and glass-and-aluminum structures.

The Tree of Life, the most recognizable landmark at the newly opened National Museum of Natural History, provided a magnificent backdrop for the launch of LG’s most stunning TV to date.

Offering an unmatched home entertainment experience all in a sleek, paper-slim panel, the W8 was designed to elevate any room or viewing environment. At 2.57mm thin and 77 inches wide, it looks more like a window on the wall than an actual TV.

The creativity and dexterity that have gone into perfecting the W8’s exteriors also extends to the technology within the unit. This wallpaper TV addresses all the major aspects of picture quality, including clarity, brightness and sharpness.

In addition, the W8’s deep black levels and bold contrast provide a consistent experience regardless of a room’s lighting or the spectator’s viewing angle. Equipped with LG’s new 39 processor, the OLED W8 allows users to see every hidden detail as it was meant to be seen, with no noise or distortion. The W8 also features its AI function through its new ThinQ platform, which offers an impressive number of unique voice commands.

To show off the stunning features of the W8, LG previewed a video it has commissioned for the museum as part of its CSR commitment to education. Shot on 4K by underwater photographer and videographer Noel Guevara, the video features the exceptional diversity of the color-washed marine life and coral reefs at Balicasag Island in Bohol. The W8 became Guevara’s canvas for revealing the tiniest details of Bohol’s underwater world – from the marks on the face of a turtle to the sliver-like antennae of a reef shrimp – with incredible reality.

Can you imagine having this true-to-life picture quality and near-cinematic experience in your own home? 

LG OLED ambassador James Deakin presented a video blog at the launch, where he discusses how the OLED has improved his family’s TV-viewing experience by leaps and bounds.

“Once you’ve watched something on the OLED, it’s really hard to go back to anything else. The picture quality is awesome – it’s really easy on the eyes and the sound quality is excellent-you don’t need boosters. Movie nights are a lot better, playing video games is much better, watching sports is so much better. There’s no going back,”  James Deakin enthuses.

“The W8 highlights the true extent of LG’s innovation and passion for consumer-centric experiences. We always try to provide our customers with the most advanced innovations to deliver unrivaled viewing experiences and cutting-edge designs that enhance their everyday lives.” – Mr. Jongnam An, Vice President – Home Entertainment at LG Philippines.

As part of the donation, LG also commissioned underwater conservationist director/photographer Noel Guevara to create a short video that showcases the richness and beauty of underwater life in the Philippines, said to be the epicenter of marine biodiversity on earth. The video, shot off Balicasag Island in Panglao, Bohol, features colorful reefs, tropical fish of all sizes and turtle residents. 

Guevara’s video was premiered to media and special friends at the NMNH on the 77-inch LG OLED W8 TV, LG’s newest and most stunning display to date, which showed off the underwater sights of the Bohol Sea to the best advantage. Marrying best-in-class picture quality with a mind-blowing “wallpaper” design (the display measures a paper-thin 0.23 inches), the W8 represents the height of TV technology, flaunting true-to-life picture quality and cinema-quality Dolby Atmos sound. This newly launched model is also equipped with LG’s new Alpha α9 intelligent processor, which has the ability to create the clearest and most detailed pictures with realistic color and ultra-fast response times.
