World’s First ‘Ultra HD’ TV

FILED UNDER: Technology

In Los Angeles this week, Samsung is hoping to impress visitors to the Society for Information Display (SID) International Symposium with the world’s first Ultra HD LCD TV.

The screen is a monster – 82 inches in size with a refresh rate of 120Hz and ultra definition (UD) resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. The UD set is double the resolution of full HD (1920 x 1080) in both width and height, effectively making it four times the size.

The refresh rate of 120 Hz is at the cutting edge for LCD TVs, although, Samsung will be releasing new technology in 2011 called ‘Blue Phase TV’ that will double the refresh rate to 240Hz.

According to Kim Sang-soo, executive vice president of Samsung’s LCD Technology Center, “This 82-inch LCD is large enough to cover all viewing angles with ultra-definition resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate that will allow viewers to watch motion pictures as if they are really in them.”

“I personally hope the next-generation ultra-high definition level in the LCD panel market will open soon, with increasing consumer demand for clear viewing in households and public spaces,’’ said Sang-soo.

4 times the pixel count… it is double the size in both height and width so it is effectively FOUR 1080p screens at once.

Thanks for pointing that out.
