LG Launches World’s First 84 inch 4K 3D TV
LG has launched a brand new 3D TV that takes 3D viewing to new heights. Christened 84LM9600, the TV measures a massive 84 inches though size alone is not the TV’s only USP. For the TV also boasts of Ultra Definition 4K resolution which, in lay man term translates to four times the resolution that current range of HD TVs have to offer. The 3D TV’s 4K display means it has a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels or eight million pixels per frame.
The 3D TV was announced at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier in the year and has now been launched in Korea with its international release slated to happen in September. Also, with the IFA event slated to begin this month end in Berlin, it will act as the perfect launch platform for the TV’s European debut.
“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.
Apart from 3D and Smart TV capabilities, the TV also features a 2.2 Speaker System that includes two 10W speakers and two 15W woofers. Another innovative feature of the 3D TV is its ability to interpret voice commands. So users can manage sound controls or surf channels simply by speaking into the LG Magic Remote that is part of the package.
The 84LM9600 3D TV costs 25m won in Korea which comes to about £14,000 as per current conversion rates.
Sony and Toshiba are the other manufacturers that too are eager to chalk out a presence in the fast emerging 4K TV sector.
