Seoul, South Korea -
lifted the veil from one of the surprises it has planned for the International CES in 11 days - the world's largest 3D Ultra Definition (UD) TV.
The so-called 4K by 2K (3,840 by 2,160 pixels) LCD TV measures 84 inches diagonally, is 3D ready and features LG's Smart TV technology.
"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.
LG is also added a new 3D Sound Zooming effect that helps the sound better match the visual effect.
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.
An imbedded 2D-to-3D conversion engine expands the availability of 3D content.
One of the slicker features in the new set is a Magic Remote navigation system, offering a built-in mic that recognizes the users' voice and carries out basic verbal commands.
The ergonomically designed Magic Remote also offers users a choice of command input, including Voice Recognition, Wheel, Point and Magic Gesture, which reacts to basic hand gestures.
