LG announced today it will introduce next month at the 2012 CES in Las Vegas  the world’s largest and first  3D flat panel using LG film pattern technology (FPR) to produce images with all the vertical resolution of active 3D displays but using the cheap lightweight, batteryless 3D glasses found in movie theaters.

LG calls the set an 3D Ultra Definition TV for use of its 84-Inch panel (84.04″ diagonal)  that has a 4K resolution in 2D of 3840 x 2160, exactly four times the pixels found in Full HD TVs. The FPR system (TV + 3D glasses) cuts the vertical resolution in half making the 3D resolution 3840 x 1080, which will provide the same vertical resolution as found in all Full HD TVs using active 3D glasses. All current LG FPR TVs provide 540 lines of vertical resolution when viewing 3D content.

As pictured above the panel boasts slim bezels, thin form factor and incorporates LGs latest Magic Remote that uses hand motion, pointing, voice and a wheel to instead of conventional buttons to control the TV. This 84-Incher is a Smart TV allowing  access to thousands of movies and over 1200 apps and “gives users access to a growing range of premium content services, including the 3D Zone, where users can select an increasing wealth of 3D movies via the Internet”  according to the latest press release.

LG also includes its upcoming 3D Sound Zooming technology that it claims competes favorably to the sound you get from a complete home theater system. You can see the entire press release with more information at our sister website HD Guru3D .

    HD Guru: Do you have any idea where the content will come from to watch on this device?

    An excellent question. We queried LG US about this models’ ability to handle 4K signals from future 4K Blu-ray players and other media.

    We couldn’t get an answer at this time and will have to wait until early January for the 2012 CES .

    Worst case posible? No external 4K signals, just the ability to upconvert all SD and HD signals to 4K (like the JVC UHD projectors). At best we’ll guess a future update for 4K Blu-ray disc signal compatibility. We’ll be in Las Vegas covering the 2012 International CES looking for the answers to these and other product questions.
