LG 3D UD TV  (Source: koreaittimes.com)
The 84-inch 3D Ultra-Definition TV is expected to present the best 3D viewing experience yet

LG is preparing to blow the competition away come January when it reveals its new 3D Ultra Definition (UD) TV.

LG's 3D UD TV, which will make an appearance at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January 2012, is an 84-inch master of entertainment with 8 million pixels, a Slim and Narrow Bezel Design, 3840x2160 resolution, 3D Depth Control (to control the 3D effect) and 3D Sound Zooming for a whole new audio experience.

LG will also offer its Smart TV ecosystem where users can choose 3D movies as well as over 1,200 apps. Users can maneuver the Smart TV apps and movies via LG's Magic Remote, which is capable of recognizing Magic Gesture, Voice Recognition, Point and Wheel gestures.

"LG is pushing the limits of home entertainment innovation with this 3D UD TV," said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "We are bringing together all our Smart TV and 3D knowledge in the 3D UD TV in order to demonstrate to the CES audience that LG is committed to being the world's leading brand for immersive home entertainment in 2012 and beyond."

LG will also unveil its 55-inch OLED TV at CES 2012.

I think its fantastic the 4K TV's might be showing up soon but you still need 4K content to get the full benefit. Up-scaling can only go so far its not a real replacement for the missing data. Cant wait until 4K and the content to support it hit projectors but I was hoping for 22:9 to replace 16:9. Well there is always the latest ATI graphics cards which support 4K resolutions.

You probably won't see live 4K content until the end of the decade, but it's possible that there will be a 4K Blu-Ray spec (not necessarily discs that use it, though) within the next few years.

4K would be nice, but with most TVs you really wouldn't be able to see the extra resolution.

On a 84-inch TV you would, but on a 40-50" TV, 4K resolution just won't be noticed. Also, I don't see another disc format being released.

Doesn't need to be a completely new format. Just press the disk with a UD definition video and let the video players downgrade the resolution for those low quality HD displays.

The one I would really like to see hit the market is the experimental quad-HD that was demonstrated in Japan a few years ago. They had the important components designed and built. camera, transmitter and TV at 7680x4320

That would make an excellent high end monitor. Say a 40" CAD workstation display or a true 200" cinema display (projector most likely at this size)

It would require 4 of the current generation consumer video cards to drive it, but historically, minor issues like a resolution higher than the cards limits have simply been something for hardware designers to solve. There was a time that video cards were maxed at VGA after all.

100GB 4-layer BluRay discs have existed for about three years now. A 4K 2.5 hour movie with uncompressed audio tracks will fit on that 100GB disc, so they can start production any time. Players that can read those discs need to be made and a cable standard that can support that much data needs to be agreed on. The different manufactures have NOT reached agreement on that yet.
I would point out that 4K will only be usefull for 27"+ monitors and 60"+ televisions. Anything smaller and people just aren't going to sit close enough to benefit from the higher resolution.

Lots of good movies were/are shot in 4K on Red cameras, like:
- The Social Network
- In a Better World (Denmark)
- Prometheus (upcoming)
- The Hobbit (upcoming)
You can see more at red.com/experience

Its even more complicated than that.

you need dual dvi for this resolution, or the latest HDMI generation, or Display Port I guess.
Newer higher quality, shorter cables for these data rates.
and possibly newer source devices. I.E. Graphics cards, blue ray players.
Maybe even next discs can you fit a 2 hour film at this quality onto a Blueray disc.
