LG Electronics appears poised to make a major push at the Consumer Electronics Show.
The company has been offering a slew of announcements this week, with the latest being an 84-inch 3D Smart TV with ultra definition display technology. Havis Kwon, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Co., said LG is pushing the limits of home entertainment innovation with this 3D UD TV, on display at CES in Las Vegas Jan. 10-13. "We are bringing together all our Smart TV and 3D knowledge in the 3D UD TV in order to demonstrate to the CES audience that LG is committed to being the world's leading brand for immersive home entertainment in 2012 and beyond," Kwon said.
LG's 3D UD TV, at 3740x2160, offers 8 million pixels. That's four times the resolution clarity of existing full HD TV panels. The new model offers a slim, narrow bezel design, 3D depth control to let viewers customize their viewing experience by controlling the 3D effect, and 3D Sound Zooming to offer 3D sound a la home theater systems. "The resolution is important because when you are in active 3D you drop about half the resolution that the set is advertised to have," said Rob Enderle, principal analyst at Enderle Group. "By increasing the resolution this high, it's still in line with an active 3D set. It's a very nice showcase." With the new model, consumers can access LG's Smart TV ecosystem, which offers more than 1,200 apps and gives users access to a growing range of premium content services.
