Watch: Clips of Nigerians being assaulted in Greater Noida shared by African students association

The students have been asked to stay home and not attend lectures to avoid more violence till they are ‘granted maximum security’.

The Association of African Students in India has asked its members in Greater Noida to not leave their homes until sufficient security measures are taken. “You are advised to not attend any lecture until we are granted maximum security,” the association said in a Facebook post on Tuesday. The students shared several videos that they said depicted assaults against them in Greater Noida’s Ansal Plaza.

The advisory comes after four Nigerian students were injured during a protest on Monday evening. The incident took place around 6 pm, when a group of more than a hundred locals gathered at the busy Pari Chowk junction to protest against the death of a Class 12 student.

Here are the videos doing the rounds of social media:

According to the police, the residents had permission to organise a peaceful protest at Pari Chowk on Monday, but the situation went out of control despite officers being present. The crowd turned violent when they spotted a few Nigerians near the site of the protest and attacked them.

Meanwhile, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has asked the Uttar Pradesh government to submit a report on the attacks. “Chief Minister Adityanath has assured me that there will be a fair and impartial investigation into this unfortunate incident,” the minister said on Twitter.

The police have registered a case of attempt to murder in connection with Monday’s violence and have arrested five people. “We have identified many accused through video footage recorded by officers present at the venue,” said Superintendent of Police (Greater Noida-Rural) Sujata Singh. “More arrests are likely.”

Tension started brewing after the Class 12 student in Greater Noida’s NSG Black Cats Enclave went missing on Friday evening. Soon, rumours spread that the teenager had last been seen with a group of Nigerians. A crowd raided the home of these African students and, when they failed to find Manish Khari, they accused the Nigerians of having eaten them up.

The teenager’s body was found on Saturday. He died of a suspected drug overdose on Saturday, and five Nigerian students living in the neighbourhood were booked for murder. The students were later released for lack of evidence.

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.
