LG Electronics today announced it is launching the LG UD 3DTV in Korea, which will become the world’s first 84-inch 3D TV to feature a 4K or Ultra Definition (UD) resolution. The UD 3DTV will feature with 8 million pixels per frame and will provide four times the resolution of current Full HD TVs thanks Triple XD engine. The TV also has a resolution upscaler that can even upscale content from external sources like hard drives and public video sites like YouTube and Vimeo. Having said that, miracles should not be expected from this upscaling feature considering 4K resolution starts at 3840×2160 pixels while Full HD is basically stuck at 1920×1080 pixels.

It also has a Smart Share Plus feature that allows accessing content from a plethora of devices like tablets, phones, flash cards and so on, which we believe would work on DLNA technology. The TV comes with passive 3D glasses, however it does feature 2D to 3D upscaling, but this feature really is of little use as normally the upscale of 2D content to 3D just adds more blurriness to the picture quality.
Audio has not been ignored and LG has added a 2.2 speaker system which includes two 10 watt speaker and two 15 watt woofers. LG says that it will launch this TV globally in September and it will be on display at the IFA conference in Berlin later this month.
