LG Electronics today introduced the first 84-inch Ultra Definition (UD) 3D TV in the Korean market.
LG's UD 3D TV is the company's response to consumer demand for larger home TVs with greater functionality and new smart features.
"The 4K display market is still in its infancy but it was important for LG to claim a stake in this space," said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company, "LG?s UD 3D TV represents a whole new level of home viewing experience because it offers every advanced technology we currently have to offer."
LG UD 3D TV boasts very high picture quality 8 million pixels per frame, four times the resolution (3840x2160) of existing Full HD TV panels, due in large part to LG's advanced Triple XD Engine. The additional Resolution Upscaler Plus allows images from external sources such as hard drives and user-generated content websites to be rendered in higher detail.
Bringing this new experience to the 3D entertainment arena, LG has equipped its UD 3D TV with CINEMA 3D technology. 3D Depth Control allows viewers to fine-tune the "distance" between near and far objects on the screen for a custom 3D experience. The 3D Sound Zooming feature then analyzes the on-screen objects to generate sound according to their location and movement.
LG's newest Magic Remote allows users to access and navigate the Home Dashboard. LG's Smart TV ecosystem now includes approximately 1,400 apps and access to a community of content services such as 3D World with a wide array of movies and games. Even more media content can be accessed via portable devices such as laptops, mobile phones, tablets and flash memory drives using Smart Share Plus. The imbedded 2D to 3D conversion engine expands the availability of 3D content and Dual Play allows game 'opponents' to simultaneously see different images on the same screen.
LG's UD 3D TV also features a 2.2 Speaker System consisting of two 10W speakers and two 15W woofers.
LG's 84-inch UD 3D TV will roll-out in North America, Europe, Asia, and Latin America starting in September. It's price tag for Korea is 25 million won ($22,067).
Visitors to IFA 2012 will be able to experience the TV for themselves at the LG Electronics stand in Hall 11.2 of Messe Berlin.
Earlier this year Samsung Electronics released a 75-inch full HD TV and Japan's Sharp unveiled a 90-inch model.
