LG Releases Biggest Ultra Definition TV in the World, Shipping to U.S. in September

LG Electronics on Wednesday started selling what it claims is the world's first 84-inch Ultra Definition (UD) 3D TV in the Korea. That's a lot of screen real estate, and LG packs it full with support for a 4K (3840x2160) resolution, which offers four times as many pixels as a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) panel.

"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's launch comes at a time when there isn't much in the way of 4K content out there, though if you're an early adopter with deep pockets, the company says its new television will upscale images from external sources, such as hard drives. Other features include 3D support, 2.2 speaker system (two 10W speakers and two 15W woofers), and an integrated Smart TV ecosystem that now includes about 1,400 app and access to premium content services.

In Korea, LG's 84-inch TV is selling for 25 million won (a little over US$22,000). No word yet on much it will cost when it starts shipping stateside next month.

That is one sexy display..

Although, when 4K was first announced my initial thoughts were "What's the point?" The human eye can't differentiate pixels of that density when sitting the correct distance from the screen. Unless you're watching from 1ft away, you're not going to get a huge benefit from 4K displays.

Erakith, people aren't practical, you know that:D I know people who'd buy that just so they could say they had the biggest 4K, UD, 3D TV available.

I wonder how much it would decrease the price of the tv to just do it in 1080 p.

well seeing that it has 4x as many pixels as a 1080p the price would probably go down accordingly.

Cool tv...but since channels are transmitted in 1080p will it make a difference when im watching the discovery channel?

A little over the top, but I can't lie. If I had the money to spend I'd be all over it!
