LG to Launch New 84-inch 4K HDTV

LG has announced it is going to unveil a brand new a 84-inch 4K HDTV in the forthcoming edition of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), as reported by CNET. 4K is an emerging video standard where the average horizontal resolution is 4000 pixels. By comparison, full HD is 1920 pixels.

The South Korea based consumer electronics maker had already announced that the CES 2012 would also witness the company rolling out a new 55-inch OLED TV.

The move from the company, however, was not entirely unexpected. Especially keeping in mind how rivals Toshiba has already demonstrated its own 4K offering - the Regza 55X3 at the 2011 edition of IFA. This next-generation offering from Toshiba is likely to hit the market in 2012.

Sony was not far behind either, as the Japanese electronic giant also showed off the Sony VPL-VW1000ES- a 4K home cinema projector.

LG bragged that its new offering will be equipped with voice command feature. Interestingly, the voice command feature is believed to be one of the driving forces behind Apple branded TVs' massive success in the market.

However, the only setback for this offering from the company could be the fact that there is hardly any 4K content available for viewers to enjoy today. But then, that is also likely to be taken care of pretty fast by the joint efforts from the entertainment industry and technology.
