LG’s Ultra HD 84” TV arrives in UK

November 30, 2012

LG Electronics has launched its 84-inch Ultra High Definition TV at The Gadget Show Live, making the 84LM960V the first of its kind in the UK.

“We are proud to be the first to offer UK consumers Ultra High Definition technology for their homes, with our 84-inch LM960V that is as impressive in functionality as it is in size.” said Stephen Gater, CE Consumer Marketing Director. “It wowed the audiences at IFA, and representing every advanced technology that we are proud to offer as a TV manufacturer, we are confident that it will capture the imagination of the UK public as they get to see it up close for the first time.”

The LG 84-inch Ultra HD TV offers a number of new smart features with the aim of providing greater convenience and simpler usability. LG’s Magic Remote Control allows users to intuitively access and navigate the Home Dashboard of LG’s Smart TV ecosystem which contains a host of premium content services, such as LG’s film-on-demand apps including subscription and pay-per-view services LOVEFiLM, Netflix, Blinkbox and Knowhow movies as well as catch up TV from BBC iPlayer.

Further media content can be accessed via portable devices such as laptops, mobile phones, tablets and flash memory drives using Smart Share Plus. The embedded LG 2D to 3D conversion engine expands the availability of 3D content and Dual Play takes head-to-head game play to a whole new level by allowing opponents to simultaneously see different images on the same screen.

Bringing this exciting new experience to the 3D entertainment arena, LG has equipped its Ultra HD TV with CINEMA 3D technology to ensure the impressively large display provides the most immersive and comfortable viewing experience possible. 3D Depth Control allows viewers to fine-tune the “distance” between near and far objects on the screen for a custom 3D experience. The 3D Sound Zooming feature then analyses the on-screen objects to generate sound according to their location and movement.

The TV is available in over ten stores across the UK and Ireland this Christmas priced at around £22,500 – with further retail roll out in the New Year.
