LG Father’s Day Golf Clinic

Looking for high-tech Father's Day gifts? Experience LG Canada's 2024 home entertainment lineup and my suggestions from LG's showcase event.

Ahead of Father’s Day, LG Canada invited me to experience their 2024 home entertainment lineup at The Docks Driving Range in Toronto. It was a unique way to showcase Dad’s favourites, from golf to the latest offerings in TV tech and home theatre entertainment. With a golf club in hand and plenty of curiosity, I was excited to check out all they had to offer at this unique event. LG found an exciting way to blend golf with home entertainment innovation.

"LG found an exciting way to blend golf with home entertainment innovation."

They transformed the grounds of the driving range into different hubs to showcase TVs, projectors and soundbars into specific use cases for dear old Dad. If you are looking for some high-tech suggestions for Pops ahead of Father’s Day, LG’s latest and greatest offer some great options that will fit into his life, whether on the links, in the garage, or enjoying time with his theatre set-up.

The Drive into Innovation

The clinic began with a session on golf swings; although only so much could be done to help my swing, there were still a lot of elite players around the range – especially when it came to the tech. Let’s take a look at what LG had on display and their specific uses that Dad will love:


For the Dad who loves the great outdoors

The CineBeam Q: Compact Cinematic Brilliance

LG put together a faux camping setup, complete with a giant tent, BBQ and even Jiffy Pop. The setting was great for the CineBeam Q’s use case: a small, compact projector that could tag along on your next camping or backyard adventure. The small yet mighty device offers a cinematic experience under the stars.

One feature I love the most is its “auto keystone” - you place it, and it automatically calibrates screen alignment and optimizes focus. No fussing with settings, it’s ready to display content on just about any surface. If Dad loves his backyard barbecues or movies while camping, the CineBeam Q offers new entertainment methods with this compact powerhouse.

The LG StanbyME Go: Entertainment Untethered

On the driving range, I got an in-depth look at the LG StanbyME Go, a testament to portability and innovation. To boil it down, the hardware is a touch screen in a briefcase, but it did a lot more. With its built-in battery and touch screen, it takes entertainment beyond the confines of the living room. LG set up the demo unit outdoors in driving range bays with golf swing demonstrations on a loop.

It was a neat and practical way to show off the outdoor application for the entertainment briefcase. If Dad is an adventure seeker, he can enjoy his favourite shows anywhere, anytime.


For the dad looking to bring the cinema home

The New LG OLED Evo G4 TV – The Pinnacle of Performance

Post-golfing, I was introduced to the 2024 LG G4 Series OLED evo 4K Smart TV. Its Alpha 9 AI Processor 4K and OLED EX panel with Brightness Booster brought scenes to life with stunning vibrancy. We were treated to action scenes from Top Gun Maverick, which was incredibly impressive. Characters, planes and the inevitable explosions accompanying Hollywood action blockbusters looked stunning on the panel. The cinephile in me knew that just about any dad out there would appreciate the authentic colours and deep contrasts, the Evo G4 ensures every movie night would be an immersive escape.

 

The SG10TY Soundbar: Sound that Resonates

If your dad loves high-quality audio and sleek design, the LG SG10TY 420-Watt 3.1 Channel Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos could be just the gift you want. The sound bar features Dolby Atmos and DTS:X technology, delivering immersive, cinema-like sound. The demo I was treated to offered rich, punchy sound that easily filled a massive event space filled with people. The 420 watts of power offered robust and dynamic audio performance, perfect for movie nights or music sessions. The WOW Orchestra feature allows it to harmonize with LG TVs, creating a seamless audio experience. Additionally, its ultra-slim design complements modern home decor and integrates beautifully with LG OLED evo G series TVs. This thoughtful gift will elevate your dad’s entertainment setup, making every viewing experience special.

The LG StanbyME: A New Companion

The LG StanbyME is a rolling, pivoting Smart TV that can adapt to different viewing angles. Its wireless capability means Dad could move it to his workshop or the backyard, ensuring his DIY tutorials and sports follow him seamlessly.

The TV for the Dad Who Loves Sports: LG 65QNED85TUA

The New LG QNED MiniLED 4K Smart TV (65QNED85TUA) was a sight. Its Quantum Dot NanoCell Colour Technology and Local Dimming Pro technology meant that every sports game would be a bolder visual spectacle. If Dad never misses a game, this could be the TV he’s looking for to make him feel like he’s even closer to the action.

Level Up Gaming for Dad with the OLED65C4

The LG C4 4K UHD HDR OLED evo webOS Smart TV (OLED65C4PUA) - 2024 is a fantastic choice for Dad, offering a blend of cutting-edge technology and user-friendly features. This TV has the α9 AI Processor Gen7, which enhances picture and sound quality. Its Brightness Boosting technology ensures vibrant and clear visuals, even in well-lit rooms. The 144Hz refresh rate and 0.1ms response time for gaming dads provide smooth and responsive gameplay, while support for NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium eliminates screen tearing. Additionally, the TV’s sleek design and webOS platform offer seamless access to streaming services and smart home integration.

LG Offers Great High-Tech Gift for Father's Day

As the event concluded, I left Driving Range with a better golf swing and plenty of ideas for my own Father’s Day Wishlist. The LG Father’s Day Golf Clinic was a great blend of sports and technology, showcasing how LG’s latest innovations can enhance every aspect of a dad’s life. LG demonstrated their commitment to creating versatile and high-quality products from the great outdoors with the CineBeam Q to the ultimate home cinema experience with the OLED Evo G4. Whether your dad is an avid golfer, a movie buff, a gamer, or a tech enthusiast, LG’s 2024 lineup offers something special for every type of dad. This event highlighted the impressive capabilities of LG’s home entertainment systems and provided a unique and memorable way to celebrate Father’s Day.
