Ultra HD high on the agenda for LG, along with thin bezels
LG Display has announced plans to introduce a range of Ultra HD 4K TVs at CES 2013. It has previously revealed its $20,000 flagship 84-inch model, that is now expanding to include new 55- and 65-inch models at a presumably more wallet-friendly price. Also set to take a bow is a new Ultra HD 30-inch computer monitor that will be the highest resolution monitor ever to hit the market.
Ultra HD resolution, previously referred to more frequently as 4K, is four times that of a 1080p display. Ultra HD displays, regardless of size, will pack in 3840x2160 pixels and are slowly gaining momentum. The format first started appearing in shipping consumer products early in 2012, although there is little in the way of content that has been shoot in the format. Most users early adopters will only be able to watch native Ultra HD on video camcorders that can shoot in the 4K, otherwise they are currently relying on upscaling from 1080p.
In addition to the Ultra new TVs and monitor, LG Display will also be taking the covers off a new 5.5-inch mobile display with 1080p capability, a 7-inch 1,920x1200 resolution display and a Retina-busting 12.9-inch display with a resolution of 2,560x1,700 pixels. Thin bezels are also in, with LG showing a 13.3-inch notebook display with a 2mm bezel and a 4.7-inch display with a 1mm bezel.
