LG Electronics USA at CES 2022 will unveil its Lifestyle TV lineup “conceived and developed for today’s home-centric way of life,” according to the company.
“LG’s Lifestyle TVs can help transform a home into an office, gym, gallery, workshop or entertainment center, all while elevating the decor and making everyday living more enjoyable,” according to a company press release.
The lineup includes the LG Objet TV (model 65Art90) and LG StanbyME (model 27Art10), “two innovations that eschew conventional display design,” according to the company.
Resembling a canvas, the LG Objet TV has a minimalist style and neutral colors. The TV includes an LG Remote that raises or lowers a fabric cover as the viewer sees fit. Viewers can lower the cover to reveal the full extent of the screen or partially cover the display to only see a curated selection of lifestyle functions. “Full View” mode reveals LG Objet TV’s 65-inch OLED evo panel. In addition to an advanced processor, the TV also has an 80W, 4.2-channel sound system. When set to “Line View,” the TV features the date and a clock, transforms into an audio player in “Music” setting or displays a collection of exclusive space and nature-themed images when set to “Gallery.”
The interchangeable fabric cover is a product of Danish textile company Kvadrat. The three available colors — Kvadrat Beige, Kvadrat Redwood, Kvadrat Green — have all been carefully selected for their ability to match a wide color palette and blend in with a range of interior designs, according to LG.
The TV is designed to be positioned against a wall at an angle of up to five degrees. The TV’s in-cable frame system allows viewers to connect external devices such as a cable set-top box or game console. It can also be installed flush to the wall.
The LG StanbyME is a wireless private TV screen with a built-in battery attached to a moveable stand with concealed wheels that allows for three hours of viewing before recharging. LG StanbyME, featuring a 27-inch display, can be moved from room to room. The screen can be swiveled, tilted and rotated while in both landscape and portrait orientation. The height can be adjusted, allowing the viewer to customize the position according to the usage scenario. Mobile Screen Mirroring works with Android and iOS smartphones and NFC. A removable cradle lets the viewer place a phone on top of the LG StanbyME for video calls, online classes and streaming content. Users can also connect their laptops or PCs to StanbyME via a wired (USB, HDMI) or wireless connection. Control options include remote, touch and gesture recognition. The TV includes a rear cover clad in a textural fabric and finished in an exclusive “Pure Beige” color, according to the release. When not being used as a TV, LG StanbyME can display artworks, photos or a calendar with clock.
