Look and Listen: The Ground-Breaking Video and Audio Features of the LG V20
In the modern society, there’s almost no escaping technology, as we’re living in a media-rich world. Since the advent of the internet, which changed the way the world operates back in the 90s, there’s been a huge shift as to how we consume the large amounts of data on a daily basis. This has become the status quo for the “switched-on” generation. In addition to this, not only are we consuming such content in record amounts, we’re also producing it ourselves. The LG V20, released in earlier this month, November 2016, is the perfect of how our devices are evolving to meet our daily requirements of the media-driven world.
The LG V series, is the latest line of premium flagship smartphones, specifically designed to provide users with the best video and audio experience. Deon Prinsloo, General Manager of Mobile at LG Electronics South Africa points out, we took a long, hard look at the customer feedback received by the successful V10 model and used this as the starting point when creating the V20 for the consumer content era generation, said Deon. The V20 was created with story-tellers in mind, making it the perfect device for consumers with amazing experi-ences to share.
To deliver best-in-class performance, the V20 boasts new features including Steady Record 2.0, Hi-Fi Quad DAC, HD Audio Recorder, 16-megapixel stand-ard lens and an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens cameras. It is also the world’s first smartphone to come preloaded with Android 7.0 Nougat OS and the new Google In-App phone search function.
For crisp, clear videos that will rack up the Likes and Shares
Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, the LG V20 comes with Steady Record 2.0, making use of Qualcomm’s electronic image stabilisation to record sharper video and neutralising shaky images. The advanced EIS system reduces sync latency between the gyro and the image, reducing latency to only 50 milliseconds. This is further complemented by Digital Image Stabilisation, able to further improve video quality in post-processing, by making minute ad-justments across frames and minimising distortion caused by rolling shutters. In a nutshell, the V20 eliminates both the human error and the mechanical factors that get in between you and that perfect shot.
For Hi-Fi quality audio recording
V20 owners are now able to record video and audio with Hi-Fi quality sound more easily than ever. The innovative Low Cut Filter technology removes un-wanted background noise pollution, while the Limiter lets you hone in on exact-ly the voice you want to record, with no background distractions.
The V20 is also the world’s first smartphone to come with a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, developed by ESS Technology. This ground-breaking system delivers clearer sound, by minimising distortion and ambient noise by up to 50 percent. No matter what pair of earphones you plug into it, the V20 will deliver the best quality sound.
The bottom line
Recording high-quality video and audio doesn’t take massive kits full of special-ised equipment anymore – everything you need is right there in your pocket when you’ve got an LG V20 to work with. And with its conveniently removable battery (a rarity in current smartphone models), you can keep recording long af-ter your battery runs out. Just insert a charged one and you’re good to go.
