LG shows off massive 84-inch 3D TV

This mammoth is also the first of its kind with four times the resolution of full-HD panels, thanks to its native 3,840x2,160-pixel screen.

LG is back in the limelight at the Society for Information Display (SID) 2010 trade fair with possibly the world's first 84-inch 3D TV. This mammoth is also the first of its kind with four times the resolution of full-HD panels, thanks to its native 3,840x2,160-pixel screen.

This display still requires 3D glasses, but the chaebol is also at the same event showcasing a 47-inch 3D TV that does away with these goggles. The key enabling technology here is the "liquid lens," though details on this solution are sketchy at the moment. If its double-image (or infamous crosstalk issue) is an eyesore for you, LG is demonstrating a polarized glass-based 3D TV said to minimize this problem to less than 1 percent.

So, what's the take-home message here? It may be a good idea to be prudent, while these 3D TV makers figure out all the teething problems behind their first-gen products, ranging from strong flickering to ghosting and side effects like giddiness.
