LG Named 2011 Top 100 Global Innovator by Thomson Reuters
There are millions of companies in this world, starting from small boutiques all the way up to globe-spanning corporations like LG. And while some find a niche and succeed by staying there, others are out in front, leading the pack on the strength of their capacity for innovation.
When it comes to consumer technology, LG is always striving towards something new and better by introducing new products and services that aim to revolutionize the way we enjoy our consumer electronics and, in the end, how we live.
Thomson Reuters agrees. Recognizing our innovative achievements, Thomson Reuters, one of the world’s most trusted and respected information providers, put LG among the prestigious ranks of its 2011 Top 100 Global Innovators.
The Thomson Reuters Top Global Innovators program evaluates performance in 3 areas: companies that invent on a significant scale, work on developments that are acknowledged as innovative by others around the world, and whose inventions are globally protected due to their importance.
We’re proud of the standout innovations LG has introduced to the TV and home entertainment industry this year.
Earlier this year, LG changed the 3D TV landscape forever with its Film Patterned Retarder-type (FPR) 3D technology. It was an emphatic statement, that 3D TVs do not have to be expensive and that viewing can be comfortable. Previous active versions caused headaches and dizziness, and lacked adequate 3D content. With FPR technology, the glasses became light and affordable, and the flickering images were vanquished.
Thomson Reuters wasn’t the only outfit to take notice. Respected media like the tech blog Gizmodo and PC Magazine also reviewed our products, putting our 3D tech on the top of their lists.
FPR-type 3D technology also makes possible a full ecosystem of products that work together seamlessly to make 3D content creation accessible and enjoyable for the whole family. The ecosystem includes TVs, notebook computers, monitors, mobile devices (phones and tablets), and 3D projectors. Working in concert, these products let consumers create, share, and enjoy the same great 3D content on any 3D device with the same pair of glasses.
You could say that innovation is part of our DNA, and we wouldn’t disagree.
