Need a way to spend a small fortune on a new HDTV
? LG has you covered. The company has just started shipping its 105-inch 21:9 curved Ultra HD TV, which might just require a room of its own to properly enjoy. In sum, the screen boasts over 11 million pixels with a 5120x2160 resolution, as well as a 7.2-channel sound system (150-watt) built-in below.
The screen was initially launched at CES, and now it's taking pre-orders in its home market of South Korea. If you're not looking to import, you'll need to wait until Q4 to hear more. Unfortunately, exact pricing details are being kept under wraps, but you can count on it costing tens of thousands of dollars.
Here's a bit straight from LG: “The vision behind LG’s 105-inch 21:9 CURVED ULTRA HD TV was to bring the movie theater into the living room,” said In-kyu Lee, senior vice president and head of the TV Division at LG’s Home Entertainment Company. “Featuring a curved 5K CinemaScope screen and a 7.2 channel speaker system, the 105UC9 is LG’s most spectacular ULTRA HD TV yet. This product pushes the envelope in home entertainment innovation and demonstrates what is possible when you bring today’s most advanced TV technologies together.”
