Imagine a TV without any wires/cables. Imagine buying a TV, mounting it on the wall, and remotely having it start working without any wire connection, thanks to an accompanying wireless receiver box grouping together all the connected peripherals. Amazing. Right?
We are talking about the 97-inch OLED TV, the LG M3 by LG Electronics that comes with a technology called Zero Connect, bringing to the surface both present and futuristic inventions. The TV works together with an accompanying box capable of transmitting audio and video signals of up to 4K and at 120Hz.
The fact that the TV is 100 percent wireless, makes its surrounding environment much less cluttered than before, given that the box can be placed at a distance of up to four meters away while still working properly.
It is to this box that is connected to the various peripheral devices that allow users to watch certain types of content or play games: set-top boxes, hard disks, Blu-ray players, and game consoles. What is more, the box can also connect to a sound bar wirelessly.
To achieve the first-ever total wireless mode in a TV, LG Electronics has developed an algorithm that identifies the optimal transmission path and adapts it in real time to the situation. If an individual passes between the TV and the box, the signal will not be affected.
At the same time, the box is equipped with voice recognition, which means that users can turn on and off all connected devices without having to get up.
LG’s wireless TV pretty much achieves its goal seamlessly, and at a level high enough that makes it hard to ignore for serious cord-haters with enough money.
Without being weighed down with brains and connections, the LG M3 itself is a relatively simple, minimalist affair – as it is, of course, intended to be. The design is clean and uncluttered: a relatively thin framed screen on a two-legged easel stand, with the power cable able to inconspicuously run down and out of one of the legs. Unsurprisingly, the screen also has an integrated wall-mount bracket so it can sit flush against a wall if you so wish.
It boasts a 4K OLED panel and Alpha 9 processor, is 75 percent brighter than the entry-level B3 OLED in its 77-inch size (or 30 percent in its 83-inch and 97-inch sizes), and has generous support for HDR formats (including Dolby Vision), Dolby Atmos and all the latest gaming features.
