LG 100-inch LCD TV
LG will soon begin mass-producing the world's largest LCD TV, says The Register. At 100 inches, the display will be the second largest TV ever put into mass production, dwarfed only by Panasonic's 103-inch plasma. The LG product will be capable of 1080p resolution, 1.07 billion color hues, and a contrast ratio of 3,000:1. The response time will be 5ms and the viewing angle should be a full 180 degrees. These specifications will come at a high cost however, as LG will spend $150,000 to build a single TV set. Retail prices should be correspondingly higher in order to turn a profit.
