This week, the Society for Information Display (SID) conference is meeting in Seattle to show off a variety of new TV technology. LG’s at the forefront, revealing a 84-inch 3D set that has a resolution of 3840 x 2160 – that’s four times as many pixels as 1080p. Technically, no content is out yet that can take full advantage of that resolution — but hey, no harm in being future-proof.

In addition to the 84-incher, the company is also showing a 47-inch panel that features 3D without the need for glasses. IPS (In-plane switching) televisions will also be highly publicized, as well as a 9.7-inch smartbook product with a super crisp display. There’s no word yet on when any of these products will actually be for sale, but more info should be announced soon.
