Last week, on a rainy Monday (July 16), the National Museum of the Philippines and the National Museum of Natural History in particular received a most wonderful gift as LG Philippines debuts its advanced OLED Wallpaper Television to further enhance the interactive and holistic experience for its visitors.
In the presence of Mr. Jeremy Barns, the Director of the National Museum of the Philippines, LG Electronic Philippines Inc., represented by Mr. Inkwun Heu, LG Philippines Managing Director and Mr. Jongnam An, VP for Home Entertainment, donated three (3) of their finest TV units to the National Museum of Natural History.
- One 65-inch OLED TV (E8)
- One 55-inch OLED TV (C8)
- One 55-inch UHD TV
“We are very thankful to LG for their generous donation to the National Museum and for their enthusiastic support of our new National Museum of Natural History, which has broken new ground in facilitating far wider public appreciation of the natural wonders of the Philippine archipelago. These cutting-edge, beautifully designed TVs, combined with the work of this institution, will immerse our viewers and provide them with special experiences of the heritage and patrimony of the Filipino people.” Jeremy Barns said during the turn-over ceremony.
Also present during the event is LG OLED TV brand ambassador James Deakin.
As part of the donation, LG also commissioned underwater conservationist director/photographer Noel Guevara to create a short video that showcases the richness and beauty of underwater life in the Philippines, said to be the epicenter of marine biodiversity on earth.
The video shot off Balicasag Island in Panglao, Bohol, features colorful reefs, tropical fish of all sizes and turtle residents.
“As an underwater photographer and in this case, videographer, I am one of the many visual ambassadors of the sea, whose job is to bring the ocean closer to people’s hearts,” said Guevara. “Balicasag is a beautiful, bountiful dive spot. Showcasing its vibrant marine life in glorious, colorful 4K allows a viewer to take in these sights in more detail and with a better appreciation, where the only thing better left to do is to actually dive there.”
Guevara’s video was premiered to media and special friends at the NMNH on the 77-inch LG OLED W8 TV, LG’s newest and most stunning display to date, which showed off the underwater sights of the Bohol Sea to the best advantage.
Marrying best-in-class picture quality with a mind-blowing “wallpaper” design (the display measures a paper-thin 0.23 inches), the W8 represents the height of TV technology, flaunting true-to-life picture quality and cinema-quality Dolby Atmos sound.
This newly launched model is also equipped with LG’s new Alpha α9 intelligent processor, which has the ability to create the clearest and most detailed pictures with realistic color and ultra-fast response times.
Here are some ways that the new National Museum of Natural History champions interactivity and holistic education:
As part of its 30th anniversary celebrations, LG Philippines will be raffling off a W8 and a host of other home entertainment products.
