The moment 3D TV comes to mind, the very first thing that comes to mind for experienced users is whether the technology is ‘Active’ or ‘Passive’.. In 2011, LG was the first company to adopt passive 3D technology, later followed by Vizio, and Toshiba. In 2012, Sony and Panasonic has already released information to the public about its passive 3D plans. The battle in 2011 between active vs passive has been won, the winner being passive 3D. But is the war really over?
This year at CES 2012, LG released a massive 84 inch TV that was capable of 4k resolution. The people at LG called this “UD” or Ultra Resolution. Previously Sharp held the title of the “World’s largest 3D TV” however after this unveiling, LG took the crown with it’s the new LG 84LN9600, which is a passive 3D display.
The normal TV sets has a 1080p resolution which translates to 1920 x 1080 pixels. This 84 inch massive TV will show 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution, which has led to the birth of the term 4K resolution. Although Toshiba was the first company to release a 4K TV, LG is the first company to use the term “UD” to categorize their stunning resolution. The release date has been set for June of 2012 however the price has yet to be released to the public.
