LG Display, a leading manufacturer of various displays, will showcase a number of screens based on AH-IPS (advanced high performance in-plane switching) technology with full-HD and beyond resolutions. In particular, the company will show off 4K professional display, 5.5” full-HD display, 12.9” notebook display with 2560*1700 resolution and so on.

"We are relentlessly pursuing two key drivers that represent the future of the display industry, resolution and design. The products exhibited at CES 2013 reaffirm both our reputation as the field's leading innovator, as well as ability to deliver market winning solutions to customers around the world," said Dr. Sang-Beom Han, president and CEO of LG Display.

Among other innovative products, LG Display will showcase the lineup of ultra high-definition (UHD) panels with 3840*2160 resolution in 55”, 65” and 84” sizes. The panels support FPR (film patterned retarder) stereo-3D technology. In addition, the company will unveil a 30” 4K-class monitor with 4096*2160, the highest resolution for computer monitors to date.

In line with its market leading AH-IPS technology for smartphones, tablets, and monitors, LG Display will exhibit a full-HD 5.5” smartphone display with 403ppi (pixel per inch), as well as 7” tablet display with resolution of 1920*1200 and 324ppi. A 12.9” laptop panel featuring 2560*1700 (QSXGA) resolution will also be shown.

Additionally, LG will also demo new narrow bezel lineup next generation Neo-Blade series, a 23.8” monitor panel with an ultra narrow bezel, as well as a 13.3” laptop panel with a narrower than 2mm bezel. Also featured will be a 4.7” mobile display with approximately 1mm bezel, providing a solution for users to comfortably grip a large-sized phone in one hand.

Finally, LG Display will highlight its advancements in the public display field with products including the world's first 84-inch UHD Interactive Whiteboard for classrooms, a futuristic 47” transparent display, a 47” high brightness display perfect for outdoor signage use, and video wall composed of nine 55” FPR 3D panels.

Interesting marketing challenge. Getting people excited about how crisp and clear your new display technology is by showing me a picture I’m looking at on my monitor.

you can use those plasma screens as a room heater too!

I remember when they were new I walked past the floor to ceiling and wall to wall display at K-Mart or someplace and it felt like I was walking past a blast furnace.

LED is amazing, though

What we have here, is technology way ahead of the practical applications.

Are there any TV stations that can broadcast for that type of resolution? Any movies on CDs that use that kind of resolution? Any computer applications that can use that type of resolution (other than medicine or research)?

Computers, sure. More res on a 27” panel would be a welcome thing.

It worked well for the introduction of HDTV in the late 90’s...I’m going to wait for hologram’s in HD ;-)

There are already DVD players on the market that will upscale to 4K.

The keyword for my previous post was "practical". A super-high-definition TV would not be practical for just viewing material from a DVD that can upscale the content, which content wasn't originally created for the ultra-high-def TV. An ultra-high-def TV will remain impractical until TV broadcasts start being delivered in that mode.

These TV’s have the capacity to “upconvert” the standard HD 720 - 1080 signal to something approaching 2 - 4K depending on the quality of the original signal. Translation = The existing picture it delivers will look a whole lot better than any regular 1080p TV. That is a good thing, especially when it comes to movies, sports, etc.

Practicality, is the keyword.

Nobody goes out to purchase a super-duper-HD-TV, just so they can have the sent signals upconverted to higher definition. Makes no sense to spend the extra dough that it would cost just for that.

You don’t get out much, do you?

If it gives a smoother picture on a very large screen than an unconverted signal does, people will buy it.

I had a very high quality up-converting DVD player that made standard def videos look damn near as good as high def, and hung on to it for several years before they settled on BR as the standard for high def video.

Worked for me.

It is quite apparent that, it is you that doesn't get out much.

On what cave are you living in that you haven't noticed that, people are not going to spend some $10,000 on a higher definition TV, just for the purposes of upconverting the signals? That's $10,000 that is not in the budget of most Americans, and perhaps only the rich will be able to afford. Yeah, perhaps years into the future the prices might come down, but for that to happen, there has to be a lot of early buyers in order to make volume manufacturing practical.

Plus, for the most part, most people are quite happy with 720p TV signals right now, and when the time comes that TV signals go to 1080p, then most people will already be equipped to receive them.

What you are doing is trying to justify and rationalize the need for something like that right now, but right now, most of what people view, on TV and from CDs, is adequate enough on 720p and 1080p.

When the prices of the super-duper-ultrahigh-moreThanYouNeed definition TVs do come down to prices comparable to current high-def TVs, then I'm pretty sure that many millions of them will be sold, and I will be one of them buying one. For now, it's very impractical. Maybe when the economy recovers, or when Obama subsidizes purchasing of those TVs it will become "practical". Or, perhaps there will be people taking out second mortgages in order to make the purchases possible.

Now, do go out and get in touch with reality, because, what you perceive is not reality.

I wasn’t talking about “practical”, nor about “most people”. You said “nobody” I beg to differ.

These types of products only ever come down in price when the upscale, or the hard core enthusiast, buy them.

And Free Republic is not usually a place where a lot of bashing of the wealthy goes on. Not that you’re doing that, just sayin’.

Well, I, like most people, like to talk about practicality, and not about wishing to have something just because it exists and might be cool to have.

The way I see it, "nobody" in his right mind, who is not well-off or rich, would want to spend the kind of money that it would take to get one of those very high-def and very high-end TVs.

Also, for a product to come down in price, there would either have to be a good number of people buying the product, or the manufacturer would have to absorb a lot of losses in the initial stages of the introduction of the product, sort of like what MS did with XBOX and WP8. But, not too many companies out there right now, can afford to take too much in losses; not with the current state of the economy.
