After announcing a new 55″ OLED TV LG Electronics is set to show an 84-inch Ultra Definition 3D TV and 72-inch 3D LED, which it claims to be “the world’s largest. All three TV’s will be shown at the CES Show which starts in January 2012.
LG executive have told SmartHouse that they have overcome the high-cost barriers associated with OLED and that in 2012 the Korean Company will be a major player in the OLED TV market a position Sony always coveted.
“Our objective has always been to actively define and lead emerging display technology markets,” Sang Beom Han, chief executive and executive vice president of LG Display, said about the debuts at CES 2012.
“Although OLED technology is seen as the future of TV display, the technology has been limited to smaller display sizes and by high costs, until now. LG Display’s 55-inch OLED TV panel has overcome these barriers.”
The new 4K by 2K TV has 3,840 by 2,160 pixel LCD TV display capability plus a new 3D Sound Zooming effect that helps the sound better match the visual effect.
“LG is pushing the limits of home entertainment innovation with this 3D UD TV,” said Havis Kwon, LG Electronics Home Entertainment president and CEO Wednesday. “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.”
The display has more than 8 million pixels, or more than four times the resolution of today’s FullHD 1080p displays, and passive-glasses based 3D with a newly added 3D Depth control feature that lets users adjust the degree of the 3D illusion.
Cosmetics included a new slim and narrow bezel design.
LG’s smart-TV ecosystem for 2012 comprises more than 1,200 apps and gives users access to a growing range of premium content services including the 3D Zone where viewers can select 3D movies.
