Another first from LG Electronics, the 84 inch 3D LG 4K UDTV is the newest flagship of LG that supersedes their own smaller 55 inch OLED HDTV panel. According to an announcement made by LG last Sept. 7 2012, they will bring their LG 4K UDTV to the US market next month. This monster TV will be featuring a massive 84 inch ultra-definition TV that is four times the resolution of HDTV’s currently found in the market. The massive display will be having a total resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels (8 million pixels) and the first unit will be seen at the CEDIA EXPO 2012 event. Bearing the model number LG UD 84LM9600, this massive 84 inch TV will be expected to be available at a price tag of $19,999.99.
The LG 84 Inch 4K UDTV includes LG’s passive glasses Cinema 3D technology, Smart TV features, Magic Motion remote and voice control. The Cinema 3D technology utilizes polarized technology with the help of lightweight, inexpensive and shutter free glasses (six 3D glasses) that are included in the box during purchased. But for the ultimate comfort, consumers can customize the 3D effect to a preferred level using 3D Depth Control function.
“Ultra-definition television will transform the giant-screen viewing experience in the years ahead, and LG is proud to bring this new technology to market so that discerning U.S. consumers can enjoy a fully immersive home theater experience. Beyond just the ability to produce gigantic screens, it’s important that LG offers its consumers a feature-rich TV packed with Smart TV, 3D capability, a 2.2 channel built-in speaker system and the remarkable detail of 4K. The 84LM9600 epitomizes LG’s design and innovation prowess.” — Jay Vandenbree, senior vice president, home entertainment, LG Electronics USA, Inc.
With the Magic Remote, using and navigating through the LG 84 inch 4K UDTV will be as easy as possible that acts as a wireless mouse with point and click, gesture commands, a scroll wheel and voice recognition. Inside the LG 4K UDTV, there’s a dual-core L9 processor chipset that offers ultra-fast processing speeds that brings shorter load and waiting time when streaming content.
With the LG 4K UDTV, you will be enjoying a plethora of connectivity and resource sharing options. This includes the built Wi-Fi, support to Intel’s Wireless Display (WiDi) technology, Smart SharePlus, support to Mobile High-definition Link (MHL) standard, access to LG Cloud etc.
“I couldn’t be more excited about ultra-definition 4K technology and its potential to energize our entire industry; 4K is the next big thing in television, literally. First there was analog, then digital – standard-definition, then high-definition (HDTV). Now, with four times the pixel resolution of today’s HDTVs, ultra-HD technology promises to transform the home entertainment experience on giant displays, truly recreating the movie theater in your living room.” – Gary Yacoubian chairman of the Consumer Electronics Association’s 4K Working Group and president and CEO, Specialty Technologies/SVSound.
This move by LG could be a response to Sony’s announcement regarding the availability of the Sony 84 inch 4K HDTV last Sept. 6, 2012 that is more expensive with a price tag of $24,999.99.
