The 105UB9's cinematically proportioned 21:9 CinemaScope screen is allows users to access viewing information on the side of the screen without blocking any of the ongoing action.
Boasting an 11 million pixel (5120 x 2160) screen resolution, the 105UB9 represents the successful collaboration between LG Electronics and LG Display. In order to realize the TV's curvature, new technology was introduced to resolve a number of issues, such as maintaining structural integrity and delivering uniform colour and brightness across such a large screen. Until now, OLED panels were preferred for curved displays due to their ability to generate their own light. LG Display overcame the challenge of uneven backlighting by refining its Thin Film Transistor (TFT) pixel circuit technology to prevent color leakage and to ensure a superior viewing experience from virtually any angle.
"LG Display has kept its dominant position in the display market with innovative and differentiated technologies, said Yong-kee Hwang, Senior Vice President and head of LG Display's TV Business Unit. "With a resolution of 11 million pixels, the 105-inch curved LCD panel is proof of our continued leadership in the next generation display market, offering exceptional world-class value to our customers.
