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.
