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)
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.
