LG 105UC9 105-inch TV Monster Boasts 5K Resolution; That’s Huge, Folks!

July 31, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Set your memories back by 15 years, and you know you have seen the 1024 x 768 resolution being bragged as an ultra viewing experience on any display.

Time has changed and the displays have gone from the small ones to 2K and 4K resolutions. And now technology is startling us by gifting us with a never before experience. Welcome to a world where 5K rules supreme!

A massive 105-inch curved TV built by electronic behemoth LG is what emerged out of the wraps  on Tuesday. The Ultra HD LG 105UC9 marks the entry of 5K resolution on to home displays.

The mammoth TV provides a display resolution of 5120×2160, compared with the 3840×2160 that was offered by 4K devices.


With an aspect ratio of 21:9, the display could be labeled as ultra-wide, but technically it does embrace its tag-line of 5K with 11 million pixels hoarded inside.

To have a match with its viewing experience, the audio system is neither compromised with, and comprehends a 7.2 specially designed sound system rated at 150 W and co-developed by premium audio brand Harman Kardon.

In-kyu Lee Senior vice president and head of the TV Division at LG’s Home Entertainment Company, made thinsg ultra clear when he said  that the vision behind LG’s 105-inch 21:9 Curved Ultra HD TV was to bring the movie theater into the living room.

He has been quoted as saying that the new rig comes featuring a curved 5K Cinemascope screen and a 7.2 channel speaker system. Yes, indeed, and that makes the 105UC9 LG’s most spectacular Ultra HD TV ever.

This product pushes the envelope in home entertainment innovation and demonstrates what is possible when you bring today’s most advanced TV technologies together

But then, are our broadcast systems capable of adapting to this new high end stuff? We suggest you shouldn’t expect the new TV to provide you with the best as yet. Before you run into conclusions, let us make it clear that it is no LG’s fault.


The issue is that there exists no broadcast systems that can comply with the 21:9 aspect ratio of the LG 105UC9!

Knowing that very well, LG has put up auxiliary add-on info as well as menus that would be displayed on the black space, which will show up in 16:9 aspect ratio.

As anyone could guess, the LG 105UC9 would come sporting a hefty tag. Currently available for order in South Korea for a price of $117,000, LG will be rolling out the TV in other regions of the globe by the end of this year.

We need to wait what price it would quote in different regions.
