LG £1.2m television is a whopping 8.25m

LG's new Direct View LED Extreme Home Cinema TV range includes an 8.25m television that dwarfs Samsungs "The Wall" and comes with a £1.2m price tag.

Remember when a TV was tucked into the corner of the living room or hidden in a cupboard? Those days are rapidly becoming a dim and distant memory as screen sizes have got larger and larger. But none are so large as the new Home Cinema range from LG. At 8.25m, 325-inches or 27ft it's not the kind of TV that will sit unobtrusively in the corner. The price tag is just as unapologetic with the range-topper quoted at £1.2m, it is very firmly targeted at uber-rich luxury residences.

Extreme Home Cinema viewing

Designed to mimic the experience of being at a cinema, the display is described by LG as the “supercar of home displays” with the firm further stating on it’s website  “The LG indoor fine-pitch direct view LED (DVLED) home cinema display allows viewers to immerse themselves in the captivating brilliance, vibrant colour, wide contrast ratio, and breathtaking screen sizes in your own home theatre.”

2K, 4K or 8K

Every screen comes as a custom order, but if you want the headline size of 325-inches then you will need to stick to 16:9 ratio, but there is also an “Ultrastretch” 32:9 option that allows you to watch multiple sources at the same time – perhaps the Premier League football team that you own are playing at the same time as your NFL team! The new sets are available in 2K, 4K and 8K resolution with the smallest screen in the range a “tiny” 81-inches. Each display will run LG’s Quad-Core webOS interface to provide smooth content playback and come with a custom-built flight case. Handy if you fancy taking it with you on your stay-cation in the caravan.

Screen Calibration

LG are offering a 5 year warranty, installation, and support which includes bi-annual health checks, a package check claimed to be worth in the region of £30,000 but this is still not the kind of TV you are going to pop down to Curry’s to buy. Installation will include mounting and calibration but LG are also offering a new remote control that gives access to brightness settings and picture modes which would strangely give customers the ability to adjust those all-important calibration settings. Better to keep all those settings locked away somewhere where the customer can’t screw up half a day’s work getting the display to look its very best.
