It has been nearly 80 years since the first public demonstration of television took place in a crowded laboratory in London. Since that time television has advanced from blurry black and white pictures to stunning high-definition images with life-like depth, realism, color and resolution. How were these achievements made and how will they affect our technology?

Over time, there has been advanced introduction in TV technology which has brought about tremendous improvement in picture quality.

The cathode ray tube, otherwise known as the picture tube, pioneered the development of electronic television systems. CRT's are a vacuum tube, containing electro guns and a fluorescent screen used in viewing images. They were however superseded by the Liquid-crystal-display televisions (LCD TV) and LED TV's which are thinner, lighter and have lower manufacturing costs.

Next came the World's first 84" ULTRA-HD TV, which equals 4 units of 42-inch TVs and delivers an unparalleled picture resolution of 2160p which is 4 times higher than full HD.

ULTRA-HD TV uses Resolution Upscaler hardware which delivers higher detail from the existing SD/HD external sources. The TV's Triple XD Engine comes with a TruMotion of 240 Hz with the benefit of fast screen refresh rate which guarantees quality viewing of fast movies and sports.

The ULTRA-HD TV also has Smart TV ecosystem, featuring well over 1,000 applications. It comes complete with 3D glasses.

But recently, LG went a step further to introduce the Curved OLED TV into the Nigerian market. The advanced Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) TV is equipped with incredible picture quality, stunning design and innovative technologies.

The precise curve of the screen ensures that your eyes are equally distant from all parts of the screen, providing the most natural and immersive viewing experience. The innovative technology of OLED TV permits a simpler internal structure. This means the TV is unbelievably lightweight and pencil-thin, only 4.3 mm front to back at its thinnest point, making it slimmer than the Smart Phone.

Features includes sound Picture Quality. By switching off individual pixels, blacks are rendered truly black, creating an "infinite" contrast ratio.

4 Colour Pixel: This technology adds an unfiltered, white sub-pixel to the traditional red, green and blue and generates a brighter picture with a wider range of colours and superior colour accuracy, giving it an edge over other OLED TV technology.
