LG Parners With Harman/Kardon To Bring Extraordinary Sound To Its TVs
LG announced a partnership with Harman/Kardon to develop an advanced audio technology which will be employed in two of its OLED TV models and five of its ULTRA HD TVs. A perfect complement to the LG’s acclaimed picture quality, the ULTRA Surround system is expected to deliver a level of viewer immersion previously only found in cinemas.
LG ULTRA HD TV
Harman/Kardon, one of the most respected names in the audio industry, worked together with LG engineers to develop a speaker system that could deliver even, distortion-free sound with deep bass and a wide band width. ULTRA Surround reproduces audio with amazing fidelity, placing viewers at the center of a wide and evenly dispersed soundstage.
Designed to deliver truly cinematic experiences, the ULTRA Surround system has superb dynamic range and balances sound with exceptional accuracy. It also boasts an extra wide play able band width and powerful output. The system is engineered to deliver high quality, detailed sound that literally surrounds the listener, creating a significantly more immersive experience than the average flat screen TV.

ULTRA Surround technology adds a three-dimensional quality to audio that is nothing short of spell binding. The advanced technology utilizes a state-of-the-art algorithm to produce convincingly real soundscapes. The speakers cleverly distribute sound in multiple directions, balancing foreground and background noises to match the on screen action while keeping dialog perfectly clear. In a scene featuring heavy rain, for example, viewers will feel as though drops are falling all around them, yet still be able to hearon-screen dialog clearly.
ULTRA Surround is a compelling addition to LG’s cutting-edge, large screen flagship TVs.The speakers offer multi directional sound distribution and top-notch features that go well beyond merely supporting the theater-like viewing experience — they enhance and sharpen it. The results are captivating, smile-inducing and incredibly exhilarating.
