LG Electronics plans to unveil the world’s largest 3D ultra high-definition (UHD) TV at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The 84" screen will be the first stereo-3D (S3D) TV-set to support 3840x2160 (4K) resolution. Unfortunately, there will be no commercial S3D 4K content for a while.

“LG is pushing the limits of home entertainment innovation with this 3D UD TV. 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," said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company

LG’s 3D UD TV boasts superb picture quality with 8 million pixels, four times the resolution clarity (3840x2160) of existing full HD/1080p (1920*1080) TV panels. In addition, the new UHDTV supports stereo-3D technology with proprietary 3D Depth Control that allows users to customize their viewing experience by controlling the stereo-3D effect while 3D Sound Zooming provides users with 3D sound that rivals the output of all but the best home theater systems, according to LG.

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.

When the new TV be available and how much LG plans to charge for it remains unknown.

For example, so are the 55" TVs... You don't look at TV this size from 30 cm. Finally something is happening in the resolution matter. Last time I saw TV of this size, it was still only Full HD.

You don't look at your TV from 20cm away buddy. I find 1080p for TVs more than enough to be honest.

i was just thinking that scaling the amount of pixels whit the size of the tv would be more interesting . especial whit big tvs like these.

+1. I think what the guy means is that the pixel density of this screen is probably worse than the pixel density of a 40" 1080P screen.

Completely and utteryly worthless. With the arc resolution of the 20:20 vision human eye, individual pixels 1080p on a screen this size aren't visible from a distance of 8 feet. With 4x's the resolution, you would have to stand 4' to see all the pixels. And with a screen this big, that's not possible unless you move your head all over it.

It sounds wonderful for PC gaming, but considering the total lack of content whose native resolution is above 1080p its uses for home entertainment seem limited for many years to come.

It's a chicken and egg scenario. We'll need next generation HDTVs before content shifts to the new 4K format. Also, technically games will have no problems scaling beyond 2560x1600. Right now it's not supported since displays don't really go beyond that.

Even for gaming you will need some serious SLI or CrossfireX setup in order to play at full resolution th egames

I don't get the poo-pooing of UHD tvs finally being on the horizon.

RED's 4k and 5k are here and content will be released when there is a market, brought forth by sets like this. INTEL, AMD, and nVIDIA have made it a point to showcase the ability to decode multiple 4k streams, if not upscale existing media. Marvel (whom makes qdeo for dvd, bluray, and receivers) has done the same. If you go back and read x-bit's article on when the next xbox will be released, it can be inferred that 4k and/or 1080p 3D is an important factor for the next console gen.

Chicken and egg...but I think once displays saturate the market we will have copious amounts of content following closely behind.

Red is for the movie theater only where screens are so large it is possible to see the individual pixels. With this screen you would have to stand < 4 feet from the screen to see the individual pixels. And this that would violate so many viewing standards (THX for example, and IFS for another) that it wouldn't make sense. It's worthless wasted resolution unless you intend to use it for something like kiosk.

Article error: the TV display 3840x2160 is Quad Full High Definition (QFHD). Ultra High Definition (UHD) is 7680x4320

There is 4 time the pixel in the 3840x2160 resolution... your mistaken with your comment...

Obviously people TV or monitor comes first before content. Content will be available in common denomination in less than 5 years time.

If you've seen a Blu-ray on a decent large screen TV then you have to wonder how much difference you'll see on a UHD one? Of course the technology is interesting, but this resolution will only be noticeable on very large screens at normal viewing distances.

Home Imax anyone?

Yeaaaa i have a 3840x2160 TV so people can upscale 1080p
and lol consoles upscale to 1080 in most games just hate to see how even more horrid they would look
Also most cable companies at least here in the US only go up to 1080i/720p

how about a nice IPS or better true 120hz TV that doesn't require glasses when viewing 3D

You're missing an important issue: 3D. This allows for improvements on the 3D experience. If this is a glass free TV, doing 3D halves your resolution. Because you use odd rows for one eye and even rows for the other. So you end up with two 910 x 1080 images. By using more pixels, you can join two lines and end with a true 1920 x 1080 image for each eye.
Also, you can put polarizing filters on each row or line, and use passive glasses. So you save the active glasses problem. But you might lose some brightness. So having the extra resolution is important for the 3D effect.
There's also all the 4k material that's being produced now.
And let's not forget that this technology is also used for computer displays. I'm currently typing on a 23" HDTV display at 50 cm distance. I could use that as a monitor at 1m distance, and still have doubled my working area. If you like RTG games, work with CAD, imaging, even big Excel tables, you can use it. Personally I would love an 40" 3840x2160 computer display. But this will only be enabled if TV use that resolution.
