Ultra High Definition flat-panel 4K TVs are starting to hit the market, and LG Electronics' first Ultra HD TV is the LG 84LM9600 84-inch class (84-inch diagonal) LED TV with a native Ultra High Def screen resolution of 3840 x 2160, priced at a hefty $19,999.99. Ultra High Definition quadruples the level of detail from full 1080p HD resolution to 8 million pixels, and while there's not much 4k content available yet, LG has an up-conversion engine called "LG Resolution Upscaler Plus" on this TV to deliver higher detail from current HD/SD external sources. The LG 84LM9600 also features LG's CINEMA 3D technology and an imbedded 2D to 3D conversion engine.
