If current 3D TVs look too small, LG’s new 72in 3D TV should prove large enough to make 3D films and documentaries look spectacular.
If you’re delaying buying a 3D ready TV because you think they’re too small, a 72in model arriving next month could change your mind because it will officially be the world’s largest 3D TV.
The 72in LG “LZ9700” TV will let you experience 3D films, documentaries and animated shows from the likes of Sky (www.sky.com) and Virgin Media (www.virginmedia.com) in “life-sized action with a beautifully crisp picture in both 2D and 3D”.
Havis Kwon, president of LG, said: “The LZ9700 combines the ultimate in LG’s picture quality with our latest developments in 3D TV.”
You’ll still need to wear special 3D glasses in order to see anything in 3D on the supersize LG TV. But LG stressed that the TV offers “exceptionally smooth 3D images”, and you can also connect your camera or laptop through a USB connection.
Jon Ingram, operations director at Digitalchoices.co.uk, said: “LG’s 72in 3D TV will probably have a premium price-tag, though would definitely help anyone with a 3D TV package from Sky or Virgin Media to make the most of their subscription.”
LG will unveil the 72in LZ9700 3D TV at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, USA next month. The TV will launch in the UK during “early 2011” but an official price hasn’t been released.
