LG home entertainment products, mobile phones and home appliances were recognized with awards in six highly-competitive categories: Video Displays, Portable Media Players and Accessories, Integrated Home Systems and Multi-Room Audio/Video, Home Theater Speakers, Home Appliances and Wireless Handsets.

"Technology innovation and design are the foundation of our company, and we are honored that CEA has awarded LG the 'Best of Innovations' award for the fifth year in a row, recognizing our ongoing commitment to bringing the best user experience to market each year," said Wayne Park, president and CEO, LG Electronics USA. "This year's host of honored products, from energy-efficient home appliances to quad-core smartphones and stylish smart electronics, represent a diverse portfolio of products that are designed to improve consumers' lives."

Honored as the industry's best video display, the LG Ultra-High-Definition 84-inch class (84.04 inch diagonal) LED TV has a native screen resolution of 3840 x 2160 to match its impressive size. The LG Ultra HD CINEMA 3D Smart TV (model 84LM9600) quadruples the level of detail from full 1080p HD resolution to a massive 8 million pixels. Even before so-called "4K" content is available, LG's powerful up-conversion engine, the proprietary "LG Resolution Upscaler Plus," delivers higher detail from current HD/SD external sources.

In the Wireless Handset category, LG Electronics was honored for the slim and stylish LG Optimus G for AT&T, the acclaimed superphone that has been carefully designed from the ground-up to deliver incredible processing power and stunning visuals on a True HD IPS Plus display. This smartphone is equipped with the latest technology and features, including Qualcomm's powerful Snapdragon™ S4 Pro quad-core processor, 4G LTE, and QSlide, LG's newest multi-tasking feature, allowing consumer to double their productivity - or fun - by simultaneously seeing two functions at once via transparent layers. Optimus G is a high-quality multitasking device that is ideal for playing graphic-intensive games and watching HD movies.

In addition to the host of home electronics and mobile products honored for CES Innovation Awards, LG was recognized in the Home Appliance category for its high-efficiency appliances. These awarded appliances include Smart ThinQ™ technology, which takes advantage of the appliances' Internet connectivity to help consumers save time and money. 

The CES Innovations Awards are selected annually by a panel of prominent industry designers, engineers and journalists who judge product entries on criteria including user value, aesthetics, innovative design, quality and contributions to quality of life. Sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association and endorsed by the Industrial Designers Society of America, the CES Innovations Awards highlight product advancements in technology design and engineering.

Since 2004, LG has been honored with more than 130 CES Innovations Awards.

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.

Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
