LG has announced the availability of their 77-inch (77EG9700) and 65-inch (65EC9700) OLED 4K Ultra HDTVs. Why is this a big deal? Because this is the first time that a TV combining both 4K Ultra HD and OLED technology is available to consumers.
With CES 2014 just hours away, LG got a head start by announcing their full lineup of Ultra HDTV’s. In addition to the ‘5K’ 105-inch curved Ultra HDTV (Model 105UC9) announced in December, LG will also be showcasing 65-, 79-, 84-, and 98-inch Ultra HDTV models.
International CES 2014 is only a few weeks away, meaning that the world’s largest and most impressive televisions will be showcased. LG and Samsung are starting the party early, with their simultaneous announcements of a 105-inch Curved Ultra High Definition Television.
LG is bringing out a new 31-inch 4K monitor at CES 2014, dubbed “Real 4K” (31MU95). It features a DCI 4K IPS panel at 4,096 x 2,160 resolution in 19:10 ratio, a few pixels more than 4K Ultra HD (See: 4K vs. 4K Ultra HD). The new monitor also features a Thunderbolt 2 port with 20 Gbps data bandwidth, suitable for displaying 4K footage filmed with RED Epic and Scarlet cameras.
Apple Inc. will probably start selling ultra-high definition televisions with 65- and 55-inch screens during the fourth quarter of next year, according to a Tokyo-based analyst at Advanced Research Japan Co.
