First shown to the public at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January, the 105-inch CURVED ULTRA HD TV from LG Electronics became available for pre-orders this week in South Korea.
The 105UC9 TV features a resolution of over 11 million pixels (5120 x 2160) and CinemaScope 21:9 aspect ratio, along with virtual surround sound.
The TV’s cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio LCD screen features 11 million pixels, five times more than on a Full HD TV. Under the hood there are LG’s True 4K Engine Pro and IPS 4K Panel. True 3K Engine Pro eliminates visual errors and can upscale lower-resolution content into near-Ultra HD quality while the IPS 4K Panel provides consistent contrast, true-to-life colors and a wide viewing angle.
LG’s TV also delivers high-quality audio through a built-in 7.2 channel, 150W sound system. It is incorporating LG’s ULTRA Surround concept and developed in partnership with Harman Kardon.
LG Smart+TV is centered on the webOS platform. LG’s webOS makes everything simple whether it’s switching between content, discovering new shows, apps and services, or connecting to media stored on external devices. And with the help of the animated BeanBird character, webOS also makes the initial setup and connection process quicker. And by combining Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) 3D technology with extremely high picture resolution, LG’s 4K 3D+ feature offers compelling 3D viewing pleasure. And thanks to the 4K 3D Upscaler, content in SD, HD and Full HD is converted into near-Ultra HD resolution.
The LG 105UC9 will be rolled out in other markets from the fourth quarter.
