Its a world first: LG launch 84" 4K Ultra Definition 3D TV groundbreaker.


The launch of the mega 84" 4K set was prompted by growing consumer demand for larger TVs with greater functionality.

LG says their Ultra-definition 3D Smart TV has "astonishing" picture quality with 8 million pixels per frame and 3840x2160 - that's four times the res of a  Full HDTV, powered by a Triple XD Engine.

The additional 'Resolution Upscaler Plus' technology allows images from hard drives and the Internet to be rendered in higher detail.

The 84" UD Internet ready TV baosts '3D Depth Control' allows viewers to fine-tune the "distance" between near and far objects on the screen and the '3D Sound Zooming' analyzes the on-screen objects to generate sound according to their location and movement.

"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, CEO LG Home Entertainment.

The Ultra-Def set "represents a whole new level of home viewing experience because it offers every advanced technology we currently have to offer."

For the gamers amongst us, the 84" Smart TV boasts Dual Play, allowing opponents to simultaneously see their playing view on the same screen.

LG's UD 3D TV also boasts a 2.2 speaker system, with 2 X 10W speakers and 2X 15W woofers, which create a "theater-like experience in the home."
