International CES 2014 is only a few weeks away, meaning that the world’s largest and most impressive televisions will be showcased. LG and Samsung are starting the party early, with their simultaneous announcements of a 105-inch Curved Ultra High Definition Television.
LG 105-inch Curved Ultra HDTV
LG claims that their Ultra HDTV is the “largest curved TV ever made,” featuring 5120 x 2160 resolution in a 21:9 aspect ratio, which they are referring to as a “CinemaScope” screen. The LG 105UB9 allows viewers to watch films with reduced letterboxing, while providing plenty of extra pixels for supplemental content without covering the primary content itself.
“With a resolution of 11 million pixels, the 105-inch curved LCD panel is proof of our continued leadership in the next generation display market, offering exceptional world-class value to our customers,” LG Display’s Yong-kee Hwang said in the statement.
Samsung 105-inch Curved Ultra HDTV
Samsung will also be featuring their 105-inch Ultra HDTV at CES 2014, with many of the same features as their LG competition — that is, a 5120 x 2160 resolution in a 21:9 aspect ratio. Samsung’s Ultra HDTV features their ‘Quadmatic Picture Engine’, which Samsung claims “delivers all content in UHD-level picture quality no matter what the source is.”
“We are happy to unveil the 105-inch Curved UHD TV, the culmination of Samsung’s advancements, following the world’s first Curved UHD TV at IFA 2013,” said HS Kim, executive vice president of Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics. “You will experience a true curved TV optimized for consumer viewing environments at CES 2014.”
