LG Signature OLED TV R at CES 2019

By Nikki Zelinger

CES 2019 saw some truly innovative gadgets, but perhaps the most talked about product is the LG Signature OLED TV R. When it comes to TVs (and projector screens), it’s often thought, “the bigger, the better,” but all TV owners run into the same problem with their screens – when that TV is not in use, it becomes a giant, dark eyesore on their wall or TV stand.

The LG Signature OLED TV R eradicates this issue with its innovative, rollable screen that retracts directly into the base of the TV. This state-of-the-art design, paired with a host of special features, makes this OLED TV one that even us projector lovers would consider bringing into our homes. Let’s take a look at those features, shall we?

It's Got Smarts

We’d expect nothing less for an LG. You can control the LG Signature OLED TV R’s screen to roll up or down with a simple command using your voice, thanks to LG ThinQ. It also has both Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant built in. The TV features an AI learning algorithm.

Dolby Atmos Speaker


Ah, Atmos. We do so love this feature. A common grievance amongst our reviewers is that built-in speakers on most products – projectors or TVs – tend to lack any real bass. The LG Signature OLED TV R, however, has rich, beautiful sound thanks to the Dolby Atmos speaker built into the base. The base of the TV is made of solid metal, with the enclosed front-firing speaker covered by high-end furniture textile, Kvadrat, Kevlar.

The screen’s abilities are unmatched by any TV on the market today. Aside from being completely retractable, the screen has two other height settings to serve various functions. There is, of course, the Full View screen, which will obviously be used to watch your favorite TV shows, movies, and sports, to play video games on, and watch those gorgeous cut-scenes with next level graphics we’re all so fond of.

But what if you just want to listen to music? Well, you could do so with the screen totally retracted. However, you also have the option of using Line View, which rolls the screen about a third of the way out so that you can just have the scrubber, artwork, song name and artist name showing. Pretty cool! In addition to that, there are five other modes – Clock, Frame, Mode, Lightning (weather), and Home.

The screen, of course, is OLED technology. It has 4K resolution with Dolby Vision (HDR and a wider color gamut), which is perfect for those 4K UHD Blu-ray disks and 4K gaming with HDR compatibility. The screen is 65” which is a decent size for most bedrooms and living rooms. Though we here at Projector Reviews constantly poke fun at TVs of this size, none of those TVs are nearly as innovative as this one.
