ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Jan. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --LG Electronics (LG) is
ushering in the new year with an expanded family of Ultra High Definition TVs*
with new screen sizes for 2013.

At next week's International CES® in Las Vegas, LG's award-winning 84-inch
class (84.04 inch diagonal) Ultra HD TV will be complemented by 55- and
65-inch class (54.6- and 64.7 inch diagonal respectively) models.

These new sizes offer the same stellar resolution and immersive viewing
experience as LG's 84-inch class Ultra HD TV, which earned the CES 2013 "Best
of Innovations" award in the Video Display category. LG was the first company
to successfully commercialize Ultra HD flat-panel TV technology, introducing
the first model in 2012.

"LG continues to pave the way in the emerging Ultra HD TV segment," said Havis
Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "Using
our proprietary technology, we strive to offer incredible picture quality on
an enormous scale. We are extremely proud of this series as a whole and the
'Best of Innovations' award bestowed by CEA on our 84-inch class UHD TV."

All three models in the Ultra HD TV series boast the advanced Triple XD
Engine. This exceptional picture processing technology creates astonishingly
vivid images with a resolution of over 8 million pixels; four times the
resolution (3840 x 2160) of Full HD TV panels. Additionally, the Resolution
Upscaler Plus takes content of lesser image quality and renders it in high
detail, creating a wealth of content for consumers.

LG's newest Magic Remote allows the user to navigate the Ultra HD TV's smart
onscreen interface using gestures and voice recognition. The company's Smart
TV ecosystem now includes approximately 1,400 apps and access to a growing
collection of premium content services, such as 3D World and Game World**.
SmartShare Plus connects users to even more media and entertainment options.
This feature set offers a range of connectivity options such as Wi-Fi and
Intel's Wireless Display (WiDi), which enable content to be transferred from
compatible portable devices such as laptops, mobile phones, tablets and other
devices.

LG has equipped its Ultra HD TVs with CINEMA 3D technology, bringing 3D
entertainment into the Ultra HD arena. Astounding screen resolution, in
combination with 3D effects and 3D Sound Zooming, gives consumers a true sense
of being "in the action." 3D Depth Control allows viewers to fine-tune the
perceived distance between objects on the screen for a customizable 3D
experience. 3D Sound Zooming analyzes onscreen objects to generate sound in
accordance with their virtual location and movement. In addition, the Dual
Play feature allows opponents playing multiplayer games to simultaneously see
different images on the same screen* – effectively making split-screen gaming
a thing of the past.

LG's Ultra HD TV also features a 2.2 Sound System. Consisting of two 10W
speakers and two 15W woofers, the sound system produces a lush audio
experience that perfectly complements the extraordinary onscreen visuals;
creating a theater-like experience in the home.

At CES 2013, LG will showcase the vibrant neo-pop artwork of Romero Britto on
its stunning lineup of Ultra HD TVs in the Ultra HD Gallery Zone. Consistent
with LG's Life's Good motto, Britto's uplifting paintings are visual
expressions of pure happiness and hope for humanity. LG's next-generation
picture technology conveys the artist's dynamic vision with complete fidelity.
The Ultra HD Content Zone will show CES visitors just how serious LG is about
securing top quality, next- generation "4K" content. The company has already
formed a 4K content agreement with Korea's top broadcaster, KBS (Korea
Broadcasting System) and is actively initiating relationships with other
global content providers.

*No "ultra high definition" or "4K" content is currently available. No
broadcast or other standard currently exists for "4K" or "ultra high
definition" television, and the 84LM9600 may or may not be compatible with
such standards if and when developed.

*Internet connection and certain subscriptions required and sold separately.
Content and services vary by product and are subject to change without notice.

*Special glass required and sold separately.

*For a small percentage of the population, the viewing of stereoscopic 3D
video may cause discomfort such as dizziness or nausea. If you experience any
of these symptoms, discontinue using the 3D functionality and contact your
health care provider.

*Designs, features and specifications subject to change without notice. LG LED
TVs are LCD TVs with LED backlighting.
