As well as a stonking 55-inch OLED display, LG will be using CES 2012 to show off their giant 84-inch “Ultra Definition” 3D TV.
That’s right, not HDTV, but UDTV, running at 3840×2160 resolution.
First hinted at during last year’s Las Vegas show, the UDTV, pictured above, also has LG’s Cinema 3D and Smart TV web-connected features built in. The 3D tech uses the same Film Pattern Retarder (FPR) screen and passive glasses that result in lowered resolution on LG’s standard 3DTV screens, but with the extra resolution shouldn’t cause much as notable a loss in definition.
“LG is pushing the limits of home entertainment innovation with this 3D UD TV,” said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company.
“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.”
No word on pricing or release dates yet, but we’ll be sure to keep an eye out for this set when we hit the show floor next week.
