CES 2012: LG's mammoth 84 inch LCD TV

1:27 /

David Katzmaier checks out what LG claims is the world's largest LCD TV which is expected out in the third quarter of this year.

Hi, I'm David Katzmaier from CNET here and I'm standing next to the man of LG 84 LM 9600. This is the largest LCD TV I've seen in the show so far. It outdoes Sharp's 80 incher by 4 inches. The set also has what LG is calling ultra definition which is 3840 by 2160 resolution. That's pretty much double standard (??) PTV. One of the advantage of that extra resolution from what I understand is that it may enable the passive 3D to look a little bit sharper than it does on standard passive 3D TVs that have 9020 by 1080 resolution. We'll see that when it hit shores. This TV also has (edge let?) LED technology as well as LG's full (??) features which includes that standard passive 3D as oppose to the active 3D and also it has the LGs Smart TV (suite?) which includes all the (??) bezels and the new 4 way motion activated voice controlled remote. Of course, all that stuff is kind of candy compared to the size of this TV at 84 inches. It really is humongous larger than pretty much any shipping plasma unless you (??) north for $10. Of course, we don't have any pricing on this TV but availability will be in the 3rd quarter of 2012. That's a quick look at the LG 84LM9600 LCD TV among the world's largest. I'm David Katzmaier at CES 2012.
