Sydney, Dec. 19, 2013 — LG Electronics (LG) made a global announcement today that it will be unveiling the world’s first 21:9 aspect ratio 105-inch CURVED 4K ULTRA HD TV (Model 105UB9) at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

While the availability of the 105-inch CURVED 4K ULTRA HD TV for the local Australian market has not yet been determined, this exciting new innovation is set to create an unprecedented home entertainment cinema experience for consumers around the world.

This awe-inspiring TV offers magnificent picture quality and a wide viewing angle with the ability to render detailed images in breathtaking clarity to create an unprecedented level of viewer immersion. The 105UB9’s cinematically proportioned 21:9 CinemaScope screen is ideal for enjoying movies as they were meant to be enjoyed. Another advantage of the extra-wide screen is that it enables users to access viewing information on the side of the screen without blocking the main action.

Boasting an 11 million pixel (5120 x 2160) screen resolution, the 105UB9 represents the successful collaboration between LG Electronics and LG Display. In order to realize the TV’s curvature, new technology was introduced to resolve a number of issues, such as maintaining structural integrity and delivering uniform color and brightness across such a large screen. Until now, OLED panels were preferred for curved displays due to their ability to generate their own light. LG Display overcame the challenge of uneven backlighting by refining its Thin Film Transistor (TFT) pixel circuit technology to prevent color leakage and to ensure an enhanced viewing experience from wide angles.

“LG Display has kept its dominant position in the display market with innovative and differentiated technologies,” said Lambro Skropidis, General Manager Marketing at LG Electronics Australia “With a resolution of 11 million pixels, the 105-inch curved panel is proof of our continued leadership in the next generation display market, offering exceptional world-class value to our customers.”

Visitors to LG’s booth at CES 2014 (Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall #8204) from Tuesday, January 7 through Friday, January 10 will have the opportunity to see this unique product for themselves.

“We’re proud to reveal our 105-inch CURVED 4K ULTRA HD TV at the world’s largest technology event,” added Skropidis. “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.”
