Just a couple of days before the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show officially kicks off, LG made a couple of early announcements outlining what we can expect on the home TV front. The company unveiled the world’s first 105-inch 21:9 curved Ultra HD TV.
The 105UC9, as the TV is otherwise known, as a full 5120 x 2160-pixel resolution, which LG says offers an aspect ratio that “matches the cinematic aspect ratio that most movies are filmed in, virtually eliminating the black bars commonly visible” otherwise. It also has a front-facing 7.2 multi-channel sound system.
Meanwhile, LG said it will also showcase new products in its UB9800 family of 4K Ultra HD TVs, including sets measuring 65-inches, 79-inches, 84-inches and 98-inches across. LG says this series of TVs will launch with “sophisticated upscaling” tech that takes advantage of a proprietary chip to offer the best image quality possible. Other features include a HEVC 60p decoder for decoding H.264 and H.265 broadcast signals, Ultra HD Cinema 3D support, and resolutions that measure 3840 x 2160-pixels.
LG will have a total of 12 Ultra HD TVs on display at CES 2014, and we’ll work to bring you our first impressions as soon as we can.
