CES 2018: LG showcases OLED’s full capabilities

CES 2018_LG showcases OLED_s full capabilities

At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), high-tech companies and manufacturers are given the opportunity to showcase their latest upcoming products and concepts, pushing the boundaries of bleeding edge technology. It’s only fitting, then, that LG Electronics opted to show off some of the best-ever demonstrations of its flagship OLED technologies.


For CES, LG wowed attendees with its OLED Canyon, a mesmerizing walkway that consists of over 246 LG Open Frame OLED displays. Audiences walked through the Canyon, which was 90 feet in length, flanked on both sides by hundreds of concave and convex displays showing brilliant natural imagery, ranging from waterfalls and caves to glaciers and seascapes. The rich, vibrant colors of the OLED screens contributed to an unparalleled sense of immersion that had audiences snapping photos at every turn.


Another one of LG’s incredible showcases was a 65-inch rollable OLED display. While it’s not the first time LG demonstrated the amazingly flexible properties of OLED panels – in 2016, LG demoed a bendy 18-inch prototype – it’s the first time that the technology has been seen scaled up to the size of a typical large TV. When unrolled, the huge 4K display featured all the hallmarks of LG’s best OLED televisions, with incredible contrast and vivid colors, but at the touch of a button, it retracted into its base until it was completely out of sight, rolled up within. Other options included partly descending into the base, switching from a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio to a 21:9 ultrawide, allowing you to view movies shot at cinematic aspect ratios without any letterboxing. Another option caused the display to sink almost all the way into the base, revealing only a small strip that displayed updates, controls, and notifications.


While these technologies represent visions of the future that may not be coming to your living room any time soon, LG had more up its sleeve for current customers in the form of the LG Signature OLED W8, its latest flagship TV. The W8 includes further enhancements to the display technology, along with a whole host of new features that highlight it as one of the best TVs you can buy. One feature is the integration of Google Assistant into the webOS Smart TV platform, allowing you to use intuitive voice commands to control the W8, search the Web, control IoT and smart home devices, and more. Another is the inclusion of a 4.2 Dolby Atmos soundbar that provides incredible sound to match any content that you can throw at it. The soundbar also serves as the input source for the TV, and connects to it via a stunningly thin cable.


As other manufacturers enter the market with their own OLED models, LG’s pioneering efforts and technological leadership in the field are what allow it to stay on top. These and other demonstrations of LG’s OLED technology truly cement LG’s status as the No. 1 OLED brand.

Maxicare: Why You Should TeleConsult With Us


Why You Should TeleConsult With Us_photo
Maxicare Healthcare Corporation launched its TeleConsult service

Earlier this year, Maxicare Healthcare Corporation launched its TeleConsult service, a 24/7 hotline exclusively for Maxicare members and their dependents, that allows them to connect with Maxicare-accredited doctors any time they need a consultation.

What do you get out of using TeleConsult? Let’s take a look at some of its most important advantages.

It saves you time.

A chest pain in the night, a stomachache out of nowhere – without the advantage of consultation, these ailments often lead us to take a trip to the nearest emergency room. While it’s definitely a good idea to see a professional whenever something feels off, these trips will eat up your time, especially if you have to take a day off work for them.

With TeleConsult, a quick – call is all you need to get in touch with a doctor, explain your symptoms, and hopefully get an answer to your questions about how you feel. Of course, there will be times that your consultation will lead to a recommendation to head over to the hospital anyway, but at least it won’t be every time you have a mild headache!

It saves you money.

The aforementioned ER trips and consultations aren’t just time sinks – they eat up your benefit limit as well, which could be better used for when you have an actual disease. TeleConsult is a free service that doesn’t consume your benefit limit, leaving it open for more urgent healthcare concerns.

You get peace of mind.

There’s an old joke about self-diagnosing with WebMD: Whatever your symptoms are, you always have cancer! Self-diagnosis is never recommended, especially if you have no medical training – and even doctors with years of experience will still seek a second opinion if the patient is themselves! However, it’s still tempting to look up your symptoms online and end up with a laundry list of potential diseases, fixating on the scariest ones.

If you use TeleConsult, however, you’re assured that your symptoms are looked over by a Maxicare affiliated physician, and that you receive a professional diagnosis in turn.

A complement to traditional healthcare channels

There’s no replacement for a face-to-face trip to the doctor, and that isn’t the goal that TeleConsult wants to achieve. Instead, it’s where you go before heading over to a specialist, or where you go if you need immediate advice for a medical condition. Over time, the TeleConsult service aims to evolve into an important part of the healthcare system, with intelligent connections to wearable health technology, health management platforms, data analytics, and more, all in the name of serving up personalized, efficient, and effective healthcare services to every member.

Are you ready for your TeleConsultation? Call these numbers whenever you need to talk to a Maxicare physician: [Landline] (02) 5821980 | [Globe] (0917) 8190840 | [Smart] (0998) 8430754

Adventure Bear Program is an initiative of United Airlines to serve the economically backward groups in the community and support local hospitals and charities. Concentrix Philippines has always been at the forefront of working for the welfare of children, among other noteworthy causes. It has earlier organized the Marawi Donation Drive, held school refurbishing and coastal cleanup drives, and donated computers to schools.

“Giving back to the community has always been part of our culture here at Concentrix, and we are delighted and thankful for being part of United Airlines’ Adventure Bear Program,” said Concentrix country leader Elek Toth. “It is indeed a privilege to see how this effort has brought smiles and joy to the less-fortunate children. It’s been a truly humbling experience.”

Now in its third year, the decision to support the National Children’s Hospital this year was to spend quality time with indigent children from poor backgrounds. The hospital is a government facility run by the Department of Health and dedicated to pediatric care. The young patients were presented with Ben Flyin’ Adventure Bears and happiness bags, and participated in a balloon twisting activity and other fun games.

The smiles on the faces of the children capped a truly wonderful day, and one worth remembering for all Concentrix Philippines staff!
