LG Electronics has commenced pre-orders for its 105-inch curved ultra HD TV in South Korea with a promise to roll it out in other markets in the fourth quarter of the year.
The 105-inch curved ultra HD TV was first showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January. With a resolution of over 11 million pixels (5120 x 2160) and CinemaScope 21:9 aspect ratio, LG’s model 105UC9 TV delivers a truly immersive viewer experience with ultra-sharp, lifelike images and stunning virtual surround sound.
The TV features 11 million pixels, five times more than on a full HD TV, LG said adding that “with such a high pixel density, images are rendered with a sharpness and clarity that has to be seen to be believed.”
“The vision behind LG’s 105-inch 21:9 curved ultra HD TV was to bring the movie theater into the living room,” said In-kyu Lee, senior vice president and head of the TV Division at LG’s Home Entertainment Company. “Featuring a curved 5K CinemaScope screen and a 7.2 channel speaker system, the 105UC9 is LG’s most spectacular ultra HD TV yet. This product pushes the envelope in home entertainment innovation and demonstrates what is possible when you bring today’s most advanced TV technologies together.”
LG’s TV also delivers incredible audio through a built-in 7.2 channel, 150W sound system. In addition, when viewing programmes in 16:9 format, the unused screen space on the sides can display more information or programming details to enhance the viewing experience.
