LG announces 84-Inch 3DTV to be unveiled at CES 2012

84-INCH-3D-UDTV

Set to be displayed to the public at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month, television manufacturer LG is going to show off an 84-inch 3D Ultra Definition (UD) television that’s capable of 4K resolution. Designed to display a pixel density that’s four times any 1080p television, the 84-inch behemoth offers a resolution of 3840 by 2160 or eight million pixels. The flat panel utilizes a embedded 2D-to-3D conversion engine that allows viewers to watch 2D content in a simulated 3D format. In addition, consumers can play with the 3D Depth Control to modify the 3D effect that’s being created during the 2D-to-3D conversion process. 

lg_ces_2011_2LG also offers the ability to control sound processing with the 3D Sound Zooming function which allows users to digitally place themselves within the 3D sound field using only the front two speakers. The panel also connects to the Smart TV application storefront and allows the user to peruse and install up to 1,200 different applications on the television. LG has dubbed the control for the television as the “Magic Remote” and it will include voice recognition technology for controlling television functions as well as gesture control similar to a Nintendo Wii control. 

Similar to the massive displays from Sharp and Panasonic that were displayed at previous trade shows, this panel is unlikely to be within the financial reach of the majority of consumers. It’s likely designed to pull in crowds of people at the show in order to promote other LG products like the recently announced OLED panel that’s the world’s largest at 55 inches as well as super-thin flat panels that are no ticker than a pencil. No pricing has been released at the time of the announcement and LG hasn’t released any information on the amount of 3D glasses that come with the 84-inch panel or the cost of those glasses.
