LG Electronics recently announced their new and latest soundbars for the year 2019. The soundbar is a good addition to your home entertainment system partnering your OLED or UHD TV, giving you a more surround, stereo and better sound effects and experiences for your home entertainment system.

The latest LG soundbars are modern, stylish, sophisticated and delivers superior sound quality through a collaboration with Meridian Audio. For audiophiles, the soundbars would definitely be of interest to you! Having a soundbar at home enhances your home entertainment experience and enjoyment.

Let me share more information on the LG 2019 Soundbars –

“LG’s 2019 range of soundbars offer great sounds to enjoy, with multiple connectivity options to suit any kind of home setup,” says Hosik Kim, Product Director, LG Home Entertainment. “From AI connectivity to DTS Virtual:X and Chromecast features, the soundbars offer a superb, convenient user experience, all while being stylish statements for the modern space.”

A Transcendent Partnership with Meridian Audio

Working closely with Meridian, LG continues to improve sound quality across its product portfolio, extending its refined technology to three soundbar models (SL10YG, SL9YG and SL8YG) this year. The collaboration goes far beyond basic fine-tuning or the adoption of feature-sets, with both brands joining forces to engineer sound delivery for a truly unrivalled listening experience.Drawing on 25 years of experience as the masters of Digital Signal Processing, Meridian’s Bass & Space technology improves the soundstage with coherent image and strong bass. Together with its Image Elevation technology designed to lift the soundstage in a more lifelike way to boost listeners’ sense of immersion, Meridian creates a true cinematic space, delivering powerful surround sound like no other.

Able to up-mix two-channel audio to multiple, distinct channels without generating any distortion while maintaining tonal balance, the Meridian Upmix technology increases sound immersion, improving the sound field and upgrades the clarity of vocals and lead instruments.

Dolby Atmos®Soundbars for Immersive Sounds

LG’s high-end soundbars (models SL10YG, SL9YG and SL8YG) support both Dolby Atmos®and DTS:X. With these two acclaimed technologies on board, users can enjoy breathtakingly realistic surround sound that seems to come from multiple directions and depths. Moreover, some of LG’s new premium soundbar products support high-resolution audio and have an advanced processing algorithm that can upscale conventional file formats, bringing them closer to studio-quality. To bolster the already solid output and detailed soundscape of LG’s latest soundbars, users can add the Wireless Rear Speaker Kit*

In Tune with Smart Living

In addition to superior sound combining power with clarity and richness, the new Dolby Atmos®soundbars offer the convenience of AI smart connectivity and voice recognition with the Google Assistant built-in. Users can control their LG soundbars and get information, simply by saying, “Hey Google, increase the volume,” or, “Hey Google, which artist is playing this song?” Furthermore, compatibility with Google Assistant-enabled smart products make it possible to control connected devices throughout the home via voice command. Simply say, “Hey Google, ask LG to turn on the air purifier,” to the soundbar to make adjustments without leaving the couch.

Sophisticated Design for Stylish Homes

The 2019 LG Dolby Atmos® soundbars have a sleek, understated design that perfectly matches the chic style of LG’s exceptional OLED TVs, creating a seamless union when placed beneath one of the company’s next-generation TVs. At only 57mm deep, the LG SL9YG can also be installed flush to the wall for a clean, streamlined appearance that saves space and makes a sophisticated statement. An integrated gyroscope sensor gauges the position of the product (fixed to a wall or on a flat surface), adjusting sound directionality to guarantee the optimal listening experience. With its distinctive form, LG’s game-changing SL9YG picked up a Best of Innovation honor at the 2019 CES Innovation Awards.

Different Solutions to Suit Different Needs

Besides the Dolby Atmos®Soundbars,other models include a Wi-Fi Soundbar (SL7Y), and Bluetooth Soundbars (SL6YF, SL5Y and SL4). The SL7Y, SL6YF and SL5Y come with DTS Virtual:X.

SG 1st AI Smart Home by Keppel Land and Habitap

A modern home in Singapore powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), is this just a fantasy? No, it is not! The AI powered smart home is here in Singapore!

Keppel Land, one of Asia’s leading property companies and Habitap, Singapore’s leading smart living platform developer behind Asia’s fully integrated smart management system, recently made an announcement and unveiled the first smart home powered by AI in Singapore.

At the media event, guests were able to view a short demonstration of the AI in action at the smart home. With the application of the AI technology into homes, this would be helpful and useful for the family to manage and control home functions, services and facilities on a single platform.

I believe that an AI powered smart home would attract families who are more technology savvy as this technology would enhance their modern lifestyle and living. Personally, I am a fan of an AI powered smart home, been observing, learning and reading up on how AI technology and Internet of Things (IoT) would impact, change and improve our modern living.

Let me share more information on the first smart home powered by AI in Singapore by Keppel Land and Habitap –

The smart home management system currently integrates three core functions of smart home controls, community management and lifestyle services seamlessly on a single platform. It has now been enhanced to incorporate an array of leading-edge features, including A.I. with machine learning capabilities. This enables the application to progressively anticipate users’ preferences and usage patterns, thereby automating features and settings to provide seamless and intuitive experiences. These range from providing users with access to their preferred third-party service providers for maintenance of air conditioners and laundry services, for example, to automatic alerts and reminders on security issues, among others. 

The revolutionary Habitap Lifestyle Assistant, Habitap Handy, also allows users to interact with and easily control devices within their homes, access services such as facilities booking and the visitor management system, as well as enjoy lifestyle services using natural language text and voice messaging on popular mobile messaging applications, such as WhatsApp and WeChat. 

Mr Ng Ooi Hooi, President (Singapore) at Keppel Land, said, “In line with our brand philosophy of ‘Thinking Unboxed’, Keppel Land keeps itself at the forefront of new technologies and thoughtful innovations that can be seamlessly adopted at our properties. 

“Following the success of the smart home management system which was first rolled out at Corals at Keppel Bay in 2016, we are pleased to extend our collaboration with Habitap on this new system which includes enhancements such as A.I. with machine learning capabilities. This advanced home automation system will be applied at Keppel Land’s upcoming residential development at Nassim Hill, and we hope this will provide added convenience to homeowners and improve their quality of life.” 

Mr Franklin Tang, CEO and Founder of Habitap, said, “Habitap’s goal has always been to integrate smart home features, community management and myriad lifestyle services for a seamless user experience. We are very excited to introduce the new A.I. feature which will provide a harmonious and intuitive living experience for residents, in smart homes that learn. 

“We constantly seek to innovate and improve Habitap. For example, we are incorporating technologies such as facial recognition with A.I. to go beyond just facilitating entry to buildings but to also integrate security, safety and people-locating features.” 

At the same time, users of Habitap will be able to interact with and control connected devices within their homes such as door locks, lighting and air-conditioning systems via the customised, integrated platform. Smart smoke detectors within the homes can also send alerts to residents’ mobile devices or to the condominium security guards in the event of an emergency. 

The same mobile application also allows users to seamlessly access condominium management services, such as payments for deposits. For developments with smart parcel lockers, for added convenience, the system enables residents to be notified via the application when their packages arrive in their allocated locker, with a unique code for unlocking.
