No word on pricing but details will be offered at CES 2014
CES 2014 will be a big showcase for 4K or UHD TVs this year. The cutting edge of TV technology is seen each year at CES and this year one of the products that will be big are 4K TVs. Both LG and Samsung are tipped to be bringing 105-inch curved screen 4K resolution TVs to the show reports NDTV.
As expensive as moderately sized normal 4K TVs are today, I can only imagine you would need to be a wealthy oil baron to afford one of these units. The Samsung 105-inch unit is tipped to use some sort of proprietary picture quality algorithm to deliver optimized color. The TV also has a Quadmatic Picture Engine that delivers all content in UHD image quality.
The TV has a native resolution of 5120 x 2160 and a 21:9 aspect ratio. HS Kim, executive vice president of Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics said, "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. You will experience a true curved TV optimized for consumer viewing environments at CES 2014."
The LG 105-inch curved 4K TV has the same resolution and uses an LCD panel. There is no word on the price of the LG or Samsung offerings. LG Electronics' Vice President and head of the Home Entertainment Company's TV division, In-kyu Lee said, "We're proud to reveal our 105-inch curved ultra HD TV at the world's largest technology event. Claiming the world's first and the world's largest titles, LG's 105UB9 employs cutting-edge technology to provide a truly unique viewing experience. We will continue to drive the next generation TV market and demonstrate that with LG, it's all possible."
