Imagine Video Games on This 84-Inch Ultra Definiton 3DTV

Imagine playing Skyrim or Battlefield 3 on a huge 84-inch 3DTV. Well, this may be available for you soon. LG has just announced a huge 84-inch 3DTV with ultra definition, and the features are pretty impressive.

The soon to be unveiled LG 84-inch (UD) 3DTV will come packed with some very nice features, such as; voice and motion recognition, much like the kinect, and 2D-to-3D conversion engine that allows viewers to watch 2D content in a simulated 3D format. The panel also connects to the Smart TV application storefront and allows the user to peruse and install up to 1,200 different applications on the television. But the craziest thing about this is the resolution that this monster will offer. The 84-inch LG 3DTV is what LG is calling ‘Ultra Definition’, designed to display a pixel density that’s four times any 1080p television, the 84-inch display offers a resolution of 3840 by 2160 or eight million pixels. Yeah, that’s crazy.

I’m just hoping that they hook up a PS3 or an Xbox 360 to this monster and showcase some gaming and see if it gets a nice up-scale.

CES will go from Jan 10th – 13th.

SEOUL, Dec. 29, 2011 – LG Electronics (LG) will unveil the world’s largest 3D Ultra Definition (UD) TV at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Combined with LG’s Slim and Narrow Bezel Design, the 3D UD TV provides the most convincing 3D viewing experience currently available outside of a movie theater. What’s more, 3D Depth Control allows users to customize their viewing experience by controlling the 3D effect while 3D Sound Zooming provides users with 3D sound that rivals the output of all but the best home theater systems.

Via the superior display panel, users can access LG’s Smart TV ecosystem, which comprises over 1,200 apps and gives users access to a growing range of premium content services such as the 3D Zone where viewers can select from a wealth of 3D movies.

    About the only thing that is able to make use of such a high resolution are PC games exclusively, but I doubt many games can scale that high properly. Still … more definition is always a good thing 😀

    Current games will probably look the same or potentially worse considering they run at 1/8th the resolution of this. However, with HEVC, higher read speeds and more layers, a second generation of blu-ray could take advantage of it with Quad-HD encodes of movies shot/scanned in 4K or higher. It would need to be backwards compatible though so legacy players could run a 1080p version of the encode from layers 1 & 2 while ignoring the rest of the data.

    UM….current consoles only upscale to 1080p. The only thing available in that large of a native resolution is something out of a  video camera movie studios use. 

  • i’m pretty sure the games are 720p lol


    Ummm, only works on triple gpu high end gaming pcs for 60 fps performance.
