The two Korean TV rivals are sizing up to each other with super sized screens for the super premium 3D TV market.
On one side of the ring is LG who are planning to sell an 84” ultra HD 3D TV. Although there are no broadcasts of 3,840 × 2,160 resolution programming, there are 4K camcorders on the market for those who want to watch their home videos in the ultra clear format. Also, 3D movies and television programmes will benefit as people will be able to watch them in full HD. Current HD sets suffer a halving of resolution when viewed through passive 3D glasses.
LG are only releasing the passive 3DTV in Korea in August with no confirmation as to whether it will be released in other markets.
On the other side of the ring is Samsung who have announced a 75” active 3D TV. Although smaller than its rival’s 84” set, the Samsung ES9000 does include a pre-installed copy of the gesture controlled version of Angry Birds and Skype video calling support. The £6370 LED 3D TV is also set to be launched in August and includes four pairs of 3D glasses.
