I-League 2017

I-League: Aizawl FC hand table-toppers East Bengal their first defeat of the season

Ladnamawia Ralte scored the only goal of the game.

Ladnamawia Ralte scored the only goal of the game as Aizawl FC downed mighty East Bengal at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium at Aizawl on Monday to win 1-0, and thereby inflict the league-leaders’ first defeat of the season.

East Bengal, predictably, dominated possession for large parts of the contest and created enough chances to bag all three points from the game, but their lack of ruthlessness in the final third was punished by the spirited home side.

The Kolkata giants created their first clear-cut opportunity as early as the second minute of the game, when Wedson Enselme hit the post with his effort. East Bengal grew in confidence and continued to test Albino Gomes’ goal at will. Willis Plaza also came close to breaking the deadlock with a header from close range, which narrowly went off target.

While dealing with a slew of attacks from the East Bengal forward line, Aizawl’s luck seemed to be wearing thin when Lalrutthara limped off with an injury in the 34 minute.

Even after the interval, it was East Bengal who saw much of the ball. However, a slight change in strategy from Aizawl changed the course of the contest. There were more crosses into the box from the flanks for TP Rehenesh to deal with. Against the run of play, Ralte got to the end of Jayesh Rane’s pin-point delivery to head the first goal in.

With Plaza being replaced after suffering a niggle in the 65th minute, East Bengal lost some of their bite up front, despite pouring men forward in the final quarter of the game. Robin Singh yet again laboured to find the net. Gomes showed safe hands to thwart every East Bengal and help his side to a hard-earned win.

East Bengal lead the table but are level on points with arch-rivals Mohun Bagan, who have played one game less. The Mizoram-based side have leapfrogged to the third place, and lie only a point behind the Kolkata sides.

The score

  • Aizawl 1 (Ladnamawia Ralte) beat East Bengal 0.

The pioneering technologies that will govern the future of television

Home entertainment systems are set to get even more immersive.

Immersive experience is the core idea that ties together the next generation of cinematic technologies. Cutting edge technologies are now getting integrated into today’s home entertainment systems and challenging the limits of cinematic immersion previously achievable in a home setting. Here’s what you should know about the next generation of TVs that will grace your home.

OLED Technology – the new visual innovation in TVs

From the humble, grainy pictures of cathode ray tube TVs to the relatively clarity of LED and LCD displays, TVs have come a long way in improving picture quality over the years. The logical next step in this evolution is OLED displays, a technology that some of the best smartphones have adopted. While LED and LCD TVs make use of a backlight to illuminate their pixels, in OLED displays the pixels themselves emit light. To showcase darkest shades in a scene, the relevant OLED pixels simply don’t light up, creating a shade darker than has ever been possible on backlighted display. This pixel-by-pixel control of brightness across the screen produces an incomparable contrast, making each colour and shade stand out clearly. OLED displays show a contrast ratio considerably higher than that of LED and LCD displays. An OLED display would realise its full potential when supplemented with HDR, which is crucial for highlighting rich gradient and more visual details. The OLED-HDR combo is particularly advantageous as video content is increasingly being produced in the HDR format.

Dolby Atmos – the sound system for an immersive experience

A home entertainment system equipped with a great acoustic system can really augment your viewing experience far beyond what you’re used to. An exciting new development in acoustics is the Dolby Atmos technology, which can direct sound in 3D space. With dialogue, music and background score moving all around and even above you, you’ll feel like you’re inside the action! The clarity and depth of Dolby Atmos lends a sense of richness to even the quieter scenes.

The complete package

OLED technology provides an additional aesthetic benefit. As the backlight is done away with completely, the TV gets even more sleek, so you can immerse yourself even more completely in an intense scene.

LG OLED TV 4K is the perfect example of how the marriage of these technologies can catapult your cinematic experience to another level. It brings the latest visual innovations together to the screen – OLED, 4K and Active HDR with Dolby Vision. Be assured of intense highlights, vivid colours and deeper blacks. It also comes with Dolby Atmos and object-based sound for a smoother 360° surround sound experience.

The LG OLED TV’s smart webOS lets you fully personalise your TV by letting you save your most watched channels and content apps. Missed a detail? Use the Magic Zoom feature to zoom in on the tiniest details of your favourite programs. You can now watch TV shows and movies shot in 4K resolution (Narcos, Mad Max: Fury Road, House of cards and more!) as they were meant to be watched, in all their detailed, heart-thumping glory. And as 4K resolution and Dolby Atmos increasingly become the preferred standard in filmmaking, TVs like LG OLED TV that support these technologies are becoming the future cinephiles can look forward to. Watch the video below for a glimpse of the grandeur of LG OLED TV.
