LG Partners with Meridian Audio to Develop Audio Products

By |

LG-Merdian-logo.jpgLG and Meridian Audio have teamed up to deliver future audio products, such as soundbars and wireless speakers, under the LG brand. In recent years, LG has partnered with HARMAN to develop speaker systems for LG's flat-panel TVs. When HARMAN was purchased last year by rival Samsung, we figured that partnership would come to an end. Now Meridian enters the picture, and we'll see where the new partnership leads.

From LG
LG Electronics (LG) and Meridian Audio have announced a partnership to bring high-performance audio to more consumers around the world. LG's award-winning, innovative consumer electronics coupled with Meridian's unrivaled sound technology will deliver unique solutions to consumers and a supreme entertainment experience.

LG has a long history of developing audio products for global consumers, and the partnership with U.K.-based Meridian will raise the bar on acoustic performance, using natural and authentic sound derived from rigorous research and development. LG and Meridian will collaborate on an array of LG audio products, including sound bars and wireless speakers.

Meridian has driven the audio industry forward as a pioneer in high-performance, high-fidelity audio for over forty years. An authority on Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and the field of psychoacoustics, Meridian has influenced every facet of the industry. Meridian played a fundamental role in the development and adoption of revolutionary audio technologies such as Hi-Res Audio and MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) and is the creator of the world's first digital active loudspeaker. Meridian also set a new standard for automotive audio with the world's first in-car 3D surround sound system in 2012.

"Our partnership with Meridian is an example of LG's commitment to creating premium audio systems that rival the best in the business," said Tim Alessi, head of product marketing at LG Electronics USA. "Together with Meridian we're delivering an outstanding entertainment experience for LG customers worldwide."

John Buchanan, chief executive officer at Meridian Audio, added, "We are thrilled to have entered into this unique partnership with LG and confident that our expertise and shared values will see us bring a great number of innovations to the market together, both now and in the future."
