LG PH donates 3 OLED TVs to the National Museum of the Philippines

On its 30th anniversary, LG Philippines donates LG OLED TVs to the National Museum of the Philippines, and celebrates both the museum’s newly opened National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) in Rizal Park, and the country’s diverse marine ecosystems (one of the richest in the world). The large donation-in-kind consisted of one 65-inch OLED TV (E8), one 55-inch OLED TV (C8), and one 55-inch UHD TV to the National Museum. Part of the donation included LG’s commissioned short video (watch it below) showcasing the rich marine biodiversity in the country. The donation took place at the National Museum of History, Manila, last July 16.

“As an underwater photographer and in this case, videographer, I am one of the many visual ambassadors of the sea, whose job is to bring the ocean closer to people’s hearts,” says underwater conservationist director/photographer Noel Guevara, whom LG has tapped to capture the Philippines’ colorful underwater life.

Guevara’s video was premiered to media audiences at the National Museum of Natural History on the 77-inch LG OLED W8 TV, LG’s latest and most stunning display to date. The W8 TV combines best-in-class picture quality with a mind-blowing “wallpaper” design (the display is only 0.23 inches thin) and cinema-quality Dolby Atmos sound.

With LG’s donation, the company hopes to promote a more holistic and interactive experience for museum visitors.

LG celebrates their 30th year in the Philippines with their biggest giveaways yet. Thirty prizes are at stake, including one 77-inch LG OLED TV W8, one 55-inch Super UHD TVs, two 43-inch UHD TVs, five SK5 SoundBars, eleven PK5 Portable Speakers and ten Netflix Premium memberships (valid for three months).

“We are very thankful to LG for their generous donation to the National Museum and for their enthusiastic support of our new National Museum of Natural History, which has broken new ground in facilitating far wider public appreciation of the natural wonders of the Philippine archipelago,” said Jeremy Barns, director of the National Museum of the Philippines. “These cutting-edge, beautifully designed TVs, combined with the work of this institution, will immerse our viewers and provide them with special experiences of the heritage and patrimony of the Filipino people. This video will convey more effectively than ever before the amazing marine experience that Bohol, one of so many extraordinary places in the Philippines, has to offer-short of diving Balicasag Island’s hidden depths themselves.”

The TVs we are donating to the National Museum can be used both as educational vessels and design inspiration. The LG OLED TVs can integrate perfectly into the interiors of the National Museum in Manila and the other educational centers in their growing network of museums within the country, while the video will give museum visitors moving glimpses of the Philippines’ natural inheritance,” said LG Philippines managing director Mr. Inkwun Heo.
