First shown to the public at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January, the 105-inch Curved Ultra HD TV from LG Electronics (LG) became available for pre-orders last week in South Korea.
The Ultra HD TV’s cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio LCD screen features 11 million pixels, five times more than on a Full HD TV, the South Korean electronics giant said, adding that with such a high pixel density, images are rendered with a sharpness and clarity that is “lifelike”.
The 105UC9 achieves its picture quality through LG’s True 4K Engine Pro and IPS 4K Panel –True 3K Engine Pro eliminates visual errors and can upscale lower-resolution content into near-Ultra HD quality, while the IPS 4K Panel provides consistent contrast and a wide viewing angle.
“The vision behind LG’s 105-inch 21:9 Curved Ultra HD TV was to bring the movie theatre into the living room,” said Min Park, managing director of LG Myanmar.
“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 delivers audio through a built-in 7.2 channel, 150W sound system, incorporating LG’s Ultra Surround concept and developed in partnership with premium audio products manufacturer Harman Kardon. The curvature of the display has been carefully calibrated to maximise the immersive ambiance. When viewing programs in 16:9 format, the unused screen space on the sides can display additional information or programming details to enhance the viewing experience.
The LG 105UC9 will be rolled out in other markets from the fourth quarter, the firm said. Prices and exact dates of availability will be announced locally.
