What just happened? LG has upped the ante in the ultra high-end home theater display category with the introduction of its Direct View LED Extreme Home Cinema display. The concept is similar to Samsung’s The Wall TV, except instead of focusing on commercial use, it’s for home theaters.
The configurations come in a variety of size and performance configurations, from modest 2K configurations to 8K configurations, in various screen sizes.
The 2K option comes in four size configurations, according to LG’s product page, including a Dual2K Ultra Stretch format that takes the screen size up to 196 inches.
LG’s 4K option also comes in four different size and format choices, including a base 4K Ultra HD configuration measuring 163 inches and a Dual4K Ultra Stretch configuration measuring 393 inches wide.
If that’s still not enough, an 8K setup might be fine. The granddaddy of all, the 325-inch 8K Ultra HD model truly puts cinema in home theater. This model has a pixel pitch of 0.93 mm and benefits from LG’s Deep Black technology as well as a contrast ratio of 150,000: 1 (@ 10 lux). LG says the recommended minimum viewing distance is just 5-6 feet, but it looks woefully close for a screen of this size.
It also weighs 2,222 pounds and draws up to 16,560 watts, but those probably won’t be a hindrance for anyone seriously considering this option.
All Direct View LED Home Cinema Displays come with an LG Total Care five-year extended warranty and three-year health check-ups, during which an LG Certified Professional will visit twice a year to ensure all components perform according to specifications.
Pricing and availability weren’t mentioned, but if you want LG to contact you regarding details, you’ll need to fill out the form on LG’s website to get the ball rolling.
