LG will be unveiling the "world's largest 3D Ultra Definition TV" at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January. The 84" television has 8 million pixels, giving it four times the resolution clarity (3840 x 2160) of existing Full HD TVs. The television also utilizes LG's "Slim and Narrow Bezel Design," which the company feels gives viewers "the most convincing 3D viewing experience currently available outside a movie theater."

In addition to viewing TV and video content, the television will have access to LG's Smart TV ecosystem, a system that contains over 1,200 different applications, including apps such as "3D Zone," which allows viewers to select from a catalog of 3D films.

Television menus are navigated through using LG's new Magic Remote, a remote control that can be controlled by voice recognition, wheel, magic gesture and point.

The new television will be on display in LG's booth at CES 2012, which starts January 10.


I don't care HOW BIG they get or how high definition, if I have to put on those stupid glasses just to watch my own T.V. there is no WAY I'd ever have one at any price.

mrhuckfin? regardless of the viewing experience? seems rather flatlander to me, LG is a rather progressive company, I know because I have one of their larger TV thingys, no comparison about quality of the replaced Westinghouse viewing in terms of clarity and definition, the Westinghouse did not even come close in contrast, clarity, vibrant colors, or the blacks, you do realize that this is going to be 2012 in a day and a half?

@mrhuckfin If you want to watch 2-D you don't have to put the glasses on. You can change the settings between 2-D and 3-D I think.

I appreciate that the viewing experience would be GREATLY enhanced but for the price why would I want to go through the trouble to find those silly glasses just to get my 3D viewing experience? I have already viewed a couple of 3D T.V.'s that did NOT require any glassed so why not do that, I think one of them was even a LG? (Don't hold me to that.) I'm not seeing the buying public really taking to this technology very much, but that could be do to the over all economy and I'm sure they'll catch on more when the prices start coming down? All that I am saying is, this is a luxury purchase and if that's the case why not make it more convenient and pleasurable for all involved by eliminating the need for the glasses? :-)

So it's... essentially the same as 4 42" HD TV's? Same DPI, same 3d tech, same pixel technology. I mean, okay, it's nice that they set their factory up for this, but if it's the best thing they have this year I'll be sad.
