LG Releases New "Ultra - Definition" 4K TVs

Fresh from CES, LG has just released their new 4K resolution TVs. Now you may be wondering how much 4k is, turns out its 3840×2160! Plus the size of the TV is huge! 84 inches of LCD goodness. Unlike Toshiba and Sony who already have 4k *projectors*, but are still extremely expensive. This TV is also 3D which means you would have a huge range of vision, in fact even your peripheral vision would see the TV because of its huge size! This would provide a truly immersible experience. The only thing I’m concerned about is the price. I mean, lets look at the math:
3D+high res+huge screen = $$$$
This TV also implements their “Smart” TV ecosystem meaning you can access their supposedly, over 1,200 apps such as Facebook, Twitter, and their 3D zone which offers 3D content and other “goodies”. Another cool feature is its ability to turn 2D in to 3D. I personally haven’t tried this yet, but it seems tempting.
Press Release:
With Industry-Best 3D Technology and Ultra Definition Display,
LG’s 3D UD TV Raises the Bar for 3D Experience in the Home
SEOUL, Dec. 29, 2011 – LG Electronics (LG) will unveil the world’s largest 3D Ultra Definition (UD) TV at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. By combining LG’s industry-leading 3D technology and Smart TV function with UD display technology, the 84-inch TV breaks new ground in immersive 3D home entertainment.
“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 superb picture quality with 8 million pixels, four times the resolution clarity (3840×2160) of existing Full HD TV panels. Combined with LG’s Slim and Narrow Bezel Design, the 3D UD TV provides the most convincing 3D viewing experience currently available outside of a movie theater. What’s more, 3D Depth Control allows users to customize their viewing experience by controlling the 3D effect while 3D Sound Zooming provides users with 3D sound that rivals the output of all but the best home theater systems.
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.
