LG releases world's biggest ultra-definition TV
August 23 , 2012
LG Electronics has released what it describes as the world's biggest ultra-definition (UD) TV.
With an 84-inch 4K screen, LG offers 8 million pixels per frame, four times the resolution of 1080p high-definition displays.
The firm is set to push the technology as a key marketing tool to challenge market leader Samsung.
Rival Toshiba already offers a smaller 55-inch 4K screen while Panasonic has a 20-inch model. Sony and Samsung are also developing their own products.
However, LG's $22,010 price tag is likely to deter many from investing in the technology just yet
LG is the second-largest seller of flatscreen television screens, and has gained a reputation for competing with its domestic rival, Samsung, over bragging rights.
