LG Electronics will unveil a 84-inch (84.04 inch diagonal) 3D Ultra Definition (UDTV - 3840x2160) TV at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
"LG is pushing the limits of home entertainment innovation with this 3D UD TV," said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "We are bringing together all our Smart TV and 3D knowledge in the 3D UD TV in order to demonstrate to the CES audience that LG is committed to being the world?s leading brand for immersive home entertainment in 2012 and beyond."
LG's 3D UD TV boasts high picture quality with 8 million pixels, four times the resolution (3840x2160) of existing Full HD TV panels. It features LG?s Slim and Narrow Bezel Design as well as 3D Depth Control, which allows users to control the 3D effect. In addition, the 3D Sound Zooming provides users with 3D sound that rivals home theater systems, according to LG.
Via the display panel, users can access LG's Smart TV ecosystem, which comprises over 1,200 apps and gives users access to premium content services such as the 3D Zone where viewers can select from a wealth of 3D movies. The imbedded 2D to 3D conversion engine expands the availability of 3D content. Users can browse and navigate the Smart TV ecosystem using LG's new, Magic Remote, which now recognizes four different types of command input: Voice Recognition, Wheel, Magic Gesture and Point.
There's no official word yet on when we'll see these on shelves or at what price.
Japanese Sharp had also showcased an 60-inch 4K LCD TV prototype (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) at the CEATEC Japan show last October.
