LG wins innovation award for 84in UHD TV

LG's 84in Ultra-HD television has been awarded a 'Best of Innovation' award in the Video Display category by the Consumer Electronics Association.

The television set, which was unveiled at CES 2012, boasts a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, quadrupling the typical amount of pixels found in the current generation of high-definition TVs.

"We are honored that CES has awarded LG the 'Best of Innovations' award for the fifth year in a row," said D.Y.Kim, president of LG Electronics Gulf FZE. "From energy-efficient home appliances to quad-core smartphones and stylish smart electronics, LG will be bringing to market a diverse portfolio of products that are designed to improve consumers' lives."

“Even before 4K content is available, LG’s powerful up-conversion engine, the proprietary LG Resolution Upscaler Plus, delivers higher detail from current HD/SD external sources,” the firm boasted.

The UHD format is expected to be one of the big trends at CES 2013, with rival firms also expected to debut similar next-gen television sets. In order to officially fall under the category, a TV must have a resolution of at least 3,840 x 2,160 pixels.
