LG 4K 55-in & 65-in UHD TVs and 30-inch 4K monitor to be shown at CES 2013
With CES 2013 just around the corner it looks as though Ultra HD 4K is going to take pride of place among many of the panel manufacturers. LG has officially announced that, in addition to its current 84-inch 84LM960V behemoth, it will also show off more consumer-friendly 55-inch and 65-inch 4K tellies.
Unlike current "Full HD", which delivers a 1920x1080 pixel resolution, 4K is around four times the resolution, with an eye-watering 3840x2160 pixels on display.
The announcement of the smaller - yet still rather huge - panels can only be a good thing, as the 84LM960V's £22,500 price tag is far from back pocket change. Although we're confident that these latest screens aren't going to be particularly budget buys it's still one step closer to the 4K revolution taking off. Now all we need is the content providers to get on board.
Perhaps most interesting of all is that LG will also unveil a 30-inch 4K monitor at the show. With a 4096x2160 pixel resolution, it'll be the highest resolution computer monitor ever to make it to market. Photographers, designers and video editors will be frothing at the mouth to get hold of that kind of real estate. Sounds top class to us.
There's no full specification as yet, nor pricing, but the Pocket-lint team will be out at CES 2013 to get our eyes on these latest screens to bring you our first impressions.
