LG Electronics announced an 84-inch 3D LED-backlit LCD TV with four times the resolution of regular HDTVs, which LG is calling Ultra Definition (UD).
LG’s 3D UD TV boasts an impressively large 84-inch class (84.04-inch diagonal) screen and superb picture quality with 8 million pixels (3840×2160), four times the resolution of existing Full HD TV panels. Combined with LG’s Cinema Screen slim and narrow bezel, which reduces the TV’s frame to negligible levels, the 3D UD TV provides a most immersive 3D viewing experience. In addition, 3D Depth Control enables users to customize their 3D viewing experience by controlling the 3D effects, while 3D Sound Zooming provides users with immersive 3D sound to accompany 3D visuals.
Via the superior display panel, users can access LG’s Smart TV ecosystem, which comprises over 1,200 apps and gives users access to a growing range of 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 to limitless levels. Users can easily browse and navigate the Smart TV ecosystem using LG’s new, ergonomically-designed Magic Remote which now recognizes four different types of command input: Voice Recognition, Wheel, Magic Gesture and Point.
“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.”
No word on pricing or availability. 3D glasses required and sold separately. The product will be on display at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2012) in January.
