LG announces three new Google Assistant powered soundbars ahead of CES
30 December 2018, 03:30 | Megan Pierce
LG is going to show off sleek new soundbars at CES that support Google Assistant
An audio system, jointly developed jointly by LG and Meridian Audio of Britain, was applied to the new sound bar in different models. The high-end sound bars, including the SL8, SL9, and SL10, also support Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.
What's more unexpected is the fact that the company made zero mentions of its new AI brand in the context of its latest soundbars, though it may still opt to rebrand them and launch them as part of the ThinQ product family by the time CES kicks off next month. Chief among the features Meridian brought to the soundbars is a new Upmix technology that up-mixes the soundbars' two channels to multiple, distinct channels to create a better sound field and ultimately do a better job of filling your room with audio. Again, from LG's announcement: "The 2019 LG soundbars have a sleek, understated design that perfectly matches the chic style of LG's exceptional OLED TVs, creating a seamless aesthetic when placed beneath one of the company's next-generation TVs". There's also the smart connectivity and voice recognition that comes thanks to the fact that Google Assistant support is built into the devices.
Art historian Sister Wendy Beckett has died. She was 88
Sister Wendy Beckett passed away on Wednesday afternoon (local time) at the Carmelite Monastery of Quidenham in the UK. In the 1980s, she was given permission to study art, which she did mostly through books and reproductions.
That means you can control the sound bar with commands like, "Hey Google, turn up the volume". "Having Assistant baked in also means you can use the soundbar as a smart home hub, controlling products like Wi-Fi-connected lights and blinds without getting up off the couch". In addition, users can extend the soundfield even further with an optional Wireless Rear Speaker Kit (model SPK 8). The SL9 is 57mm deep and can be installed flush to the wall for space savings. 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. Their booth will be inside the Las Vegas Convention Center on Central Hall #11100.
