LG claims a stake in 4K market with world's first 84in Ultra HDTV 3D display

LG Electronics has introduced the world's first 84-inch Ultra High Definition TV in the South Korean market. With 8 million pixels per frame, the 3D-capable UD3DTV features four times the resolution - 3,840 x 2,160 - of existing full HDTV panels, based on the company's advanced Triple XD Engine.

In the absence of 4K content, the display incorporates the Resolution Upscaler Plus allowing for images from external sources such as hard drives and user-generated content websites to be rendered in higher detail.

The display also has an imbedded 2D-to-3D conversion engine as well as the Dual Play system that takes head-to-head game play to a new level by allowing competitorss to simultaneously see different images on the same screen.

At a pre-ordering price of 25 million won (€17,500), the UD3DTV incorporates passive glasses Cinema 3D that features 3D Depth Control allowing viewers to fine-tune the 'distance' between near and far objects on the screen for a custom 3D experience. The 3D Sound Zooming system then analyses the on-screen objects to generate sound according to their location and movement.

"The 4K display market is still in its infancy, but it was important for LG to claim a stake in this space," said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company.

LG's 84-inch UD3DTV will roll out in North America, Europe, Asia, and Latin America starting in September. The model will be on display at Berlin's IFA.
