LG '4K' 84in TV - orders now being taken
Posted on 20 Jul 2012 at 09:38, by Gareth Halfacree
LG Electronics has confirmed plans to sell an 84in Cinema 3D TV featuring a massive 3,840x2,160 'Ultra Definition' resolution, albeit in very limited quantities.
Boasting eight times the resolution of a 1080p Full HD display, it's a slightly higher resolution than typical 4K digital cinemas. The display also has LG's Cinema 3D technology which uses polarised lenses to split the image for each eye. Unlike shutter glasses, this means no charging and no flicker - and thanks to the display's Ultra Definition resolution, 3D Blu-ray content remains in full 1080p resolution rather than being halved horizontally as is normally the case.
The massive 84in Cinema 3D UDTV is to be sold alongside a 2.2-channel speaker system, which uses high-quality stereo speakers mounted within the TV's casing along with two woofers for - LG claims - a convincing surround-sound experience without needing to find space for multiple speakers.
The display isn't going on general sale just yet, however: LG has declared that it will be making a very small number of UDTVs available through its Korean dealerships. The display is also expected to cost significantly more than any other consumer-grade TV the company has ever offered - although LG has indicated that it will be giving those who place a pre-order ahead of a planned August delivery date a free gift, selected from a list including a 3D camcorder, a home theatre audio system, an all-in-one PC and an 'advanced espresso machine.'
Full pricing has yet to be confirmed for the TV's Korean launch, but LG has stated that it hopes to launch similar Ultra Definition TVs in other markets - including the UK - before the end of the year.
OMG, this ultra resolution TV must be another move LG made to make changes in TV industry. LG has upgraded their 2011 models in a very innovative ways that 2012 series have brought lots of changes to the markets. Yes, OLED TV is one of them.
