ULTRA HD, ULTRA Clarity
ULTRA HD is a new standard in picture quality, and it's the future of high-end video display in the home. The resolution is four times that of Full HD 1080p*, with a whopping 8.3 million pixels to display flawless images, even when viewed up close. Enjoy incredibly vivid colors and picture details as never before.

One of the secrets behind LG TVs outstanding high-definition performance is the specially designed TV panel. The quality of the panel helps determine the quality of the picture, and our IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel makes any seat the best in the house, with a clearer and more consistent image at wide viewing angles compared to conventional screens.
LG’s Tru-4K Engine is our best resolution enhancer yet, that delivers a better picture quality on LG’s ULTRA HD 4K TVs. Now you can upscale content so closely to native 4K it is nearly impossible to tell the difference, so all of your Blu-rays, DVD’s and TV programs look amazing, even on big screen sizes.
The recently developed HEVC (short for High Efficiency Video Coding) compression format is essential to ULTRA HD/4K content playback. Some next generation content will use this HEVC format and this TV has it built-in HEVC decoder to display the 4K content*.
