LG to launch ‘Ultra Definition’ television
December 30th, 2011
LG are heralding the dawn of ‘Ultra Definition’ with the launch of their huge new 84-inch 3D television.
Due to be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month, the new TV boasts stunning picture quality with 8 million pixels of resolution – a whopping four times the resolution of Full HD. And, yes, LG call it an Ultra Definition or UD TV.
“LG is pushing the limits of home entertainment innovation with the 3D UD TV,” says Havis Kwon, LG President and CEO.
And how. Whilst offering brain-boggling new clarity, the ‘UD’ model also incorporates LG’s mightily impressive 3D technology and Smart TV capabilities.
A revolution in picture quality
Up until now, the best resolution a TV could offer was 1920 x 1080p. This bad boy ups the ante – delivering 3840 x 2160 of pixels.
We can’t wait to watch 3D content on this screen – it looks set to deliver the most stunning, immersive experience possible in the home. Plus viewers can enjoy features such as the customisable 3D Depth Control and 2D to 3D up-conversion.
Thanks to LG’s Smart TV software, it can be used as portal to over 1,200 apps and a wealth of online content. And with support for LG’s Magic Remote, users will have the choice to navigate through all these incredible options using motion gestures or voice recognition.
LG are yet to offer any indication on prices for the UD TV – nor when we will be able to purchase them in Australia … we’ll keep you posted.
As ever, make sure you keep an eye on Big Brown Box for the latest and greatest in home entertainment.
