My 84" LG 3D TV is Greater Than Yours
LG striked again with the new massive 84LM9600 84 inches 3D TV (and 4K resolution) that was presented to its national potential buyers today at the LG Twin Towers in Yeouido-dong, Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul, Korea.
Just to be sure you understand how big is this 3D TV set, it is 186 cm wide and 104 cm high, covering an area of 20 sq.ft. The pixel count is 8,294,400 (3840x2160).
For people -like me- who don't own yet a 4K professional player, LG included an upscaler converting state-of-the-art 2K Blu-rays and Blu-rays 3D to the larger 4K format. It is nevertheless ultra-cool to display his own holiday pictures in 4K! And as far as 3D is concerned, even with the passive technology used halving the resolution, full HD is still possible.
LG released some more details on this 84-inch panel, including the powerful 2.2-channel speaker system with two subwoofers.
The Resolution Upscaler Plus technology upscales regular content to 4K resolution. Unlike the Toshiba 55RZ1 (requiring an external A/V box to accept 4K), the 84LM9600 is equipped with 4K-ready HDMI 1.4 inputs.
Price has not been officially announced but rumors say it will be between 11,000$ and 22,000$. Shipping will start in September 2012.
