LG to unveil world’s first 105″ Curved Ultra HD TV

LG Electronics today announced it will be unveiling the world’s first 21:9 aspect ratio Curved Ultra HD TV(Model 105UB9) at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The TV is also the company’s first Curved Ultra HD model. As the model is previewed for the first time, there is no detailed announcement regarding either availability timing for pricing at this stage.

Boasting an 11 million pixel (5120 x 2160) screen resolution, the 105UB9 is said to represent a successful collaboration between LG Electronics and LG Display.

In order to realise the TV’s curvature, new technology has been introduced to overcome certain issues like maintaining structural integrity and delivering uniform colour and brightness across such a large screen. Until now, OLED panels were widespread preferred for curved displays due to their ability to generate their own light. LG Display counters the issue of uneven backlighting by refining its Thin Film Transistor (TFT) pixel circuit technology to prevent colour leakage and to ensure a greater viewing experience from virtually any angle.

“LG Display has kept its dominant position in the display market with innovative and differentiated technologies,” said Yong-kee Hwang, Senior Vice President and head of LG Display’s TV Business Unit. “With a resolution of 11 million pixels, the 105-inch curved LCD panel is proof of our continued leadership in the next generation display market, offering exceptional world-class value to our customers.”

“We’re proud to reveal our 105-inch Curved Ultra HD TV at the world’s largest technology event,” said In-kyu Lee, Vice President and head of the Home Entertainment Company’s TV division at LG Electronics. “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.”
