LG Launches First 'Ultra-High-Definition' 4K TVs In U.S.

LG's first "Ultra High Definition" flat-panel TV - with four times the resolution of today's HDTVs - went on sale today in the United States.

LG Electronics USA chose Southern California as the consumer launchpad for this technology, after teaming up with retailer Video & Audio Center.

The LG 84-inch class (84-inch diagonal) LED TV, with a native Ultra High Def screen resolution of 3840 x 2160 to match its impressive size, has an MSRP of $19,999.99. Model 84LM9600 quadruples the level of detail from full 1080p HD resolution to 8 million pixels. Even before so-called "4K" content is available, LG's up-conversion engine, the proprietary "LG Resolution Upscaler Plus," delivers higher detail from current HD/SD external sources.



LG's 84LM9600 also boasts a Smart TV ecosystem, which is composed of over 1,000 apps and gives users access to a range of premium content services. Users can browse and navigate through the Smart TV ecosystem using LG's Magic Remote, which allows users to make commands using the control modes of Voice Recognition, Wheel, Magic Gesture and Point. It also features LG's CINEMA 3D technology and an imbedded 2D to 3D conversion engine expanding 3D content availability.

LG's rival Samsung Electronics is also expected to release a 4K UHD TV, priced at $25,000.
