At the beginning of January, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES for short) takes place every year, during which numerous new technology announcements are made and many tech manufacturers give an outlook on the current model year. So this year too – LG and Sony, among others, presented their new TV models at the CES 2022 in Las Vegas, which is currently still running. And the OLED models in particular should be of particular interest to gamblers.

In memory of: The advantages of OLED televisions include very good black levels, because every single pixel of the display can be switched off. In addition, due to the panel technology, there is excellent color rendering, flat design and a great impression of sharpness. The disadvantages include the theoretical possibility of so-called “burn-in” and, compared to other display technologies, lower brightness.

The second point of criticism should, however, be a thing of the past in the future, because some TVs from the LG and Sony lineup rely on significantly brighter displays.

LG is sending five revised OLED series into the race

This year, LG is relying primarily on two series for its OLED models. The G2 series will be available with display sizes of 55, 65, 77, 83 and, for the first time, a gigantic 97 inches and, thanks to an improved “Evo panel”, will enable significantly higher brightness, which should reach up to 1000 nits.

The models of the G2 series have a particularly flat design that is well suited for wall mounting and several HDMI ports with full HDMI 2.1 functionality, which, in addition to the fast panel response times, is particularly suitable for owners of PS5 and Xbox Series X / S should be interesting.

LG’s C series models have been popular with gamers in the past and the new C2 series should not be an exception. The series is available in display sizes 42, 48, 55, 65, 77 and 83 inches, with the 42 model being the first OLED in this size. The C2 TVs also have an Evo panel built in, which enables a higher brightness (up to 900 nits, but the smaller display sizes do not seem to support this). The C-series models also offer several HDMI 2.1 inputs and, like the other LG series, have a special “Game Optimizer” menu with presets for shooters, role-playing games – and new in 2022 – sports games.

In addition, the models from the A, B and Z series will also be revised, you can get all further information and exact specs on the official LG page.

Sony presents its first QD OLED panel and has VRR on board immediately

Sony TVs have been at the forefront for many years when it comes to picture quality, as has been confirmed by numerous tests and user votes. The company naturally wants to maintain this status and this year presented a total of eight model series with OLED or mini LED technology. The A95K series (available in 55 and 65 inches) is particularly noteworthy. They have a “QD OLED display”, the name comes from Quantum Dots. These are small crystals that are built into the panel and enable even more intensely colored and also brighter displays.

Beautiful message: While older Sony TV series did not offer full HDMI 2.1 support – for example, VRR should be submitted later via update – this should be different with the 2022 lineup. Anyone who buys one of the new Sony TVs should be able to use all the advantages of HDMI 2.1 – including VRR – immediately.
