SOUTH KOREAN ELECTRONICS FIRM LG has launched its 84in Ultra High Definition (UHD) Smart TV at the Gadget Show Live in London today, touted as "the first of its kind in the UK".

First unveiled at IFA in Berlin this Summer, the huge TV with the catchy name 84LM960V boasts an 84in LED screen powered by a dual core processor with built in WiFi and support for 3D movies.

However, don't get too excited. Those interested in buying the TV will have to be pretty well off because LG has given it a rather unattainable price tag of £22,500.

If the price doesn't put you off, you might be interested that LG said its Resolution Upscaler Plus technology means the TV can render high definition images in higher detail no matter what you're watching on it.

"Bringing this exciting new experience to the 3D entertainment arena, LG has equipped its Ultra HD TV with Cinema 3D technology to ensure the impressively large display provides the most immersive and comfortable viewing experience possible," LG said.

"3D Depth Control allows viewers to fine-tune the 'distance' between near and far objects on the screen for a custom 3D experience and the 3D Sound Zooming feature then analyses the on-screen objects to generate sound according to their location and movement."

There are also five pairs of 3D glasses bundled in with the TV, and we'd hope so too, for that price.

In terms of sound, LG's expensive TV features a 2.2 speaker system consisting of two 10W speakers and two 15W woofers that reinforce the sound to reflect the experience of a cinema.

LG said the TV's "Magic Remote Control" also allows users to access and navigate the Home Dashboard of LG's Smart TV ecosystem.

The super expensive UHD TV will be available in over ten stores across the UK and Ireland by Christmas, the firm said, including John Lewis Sloane Square, Bentalls Kingston and Richer Sounds Southampton, with further a retail rollout planned in the New Year. µ
