LG Begins Selling 71-inch Plasma TV
While companies such as Samsung and Panasonic showed off over 100-inch plasma televisions at CES in January, those sets were largely prototypes designed to showcase the companies' technological prowess. LG, meanwhile, has delivered the largest plasma TV for retail, measuring 71-inches and offering 1080p HD resolution.
Ken Cranes on the west coast and Sixth Avenue on the east coast will sell the massive display, which incorporates LG's XD Engine technology to take lower resolution images and up-scale them to near high-definition levels. "The retail launch of the LG 71-inch plasma HDTV monitor underscores our commitment in providing innovative solutions to the premium, high-end consumer electronics industry," said Robert A. Perry, LG vice president. Pricing for the 71-inch plasma TV was not yet announced.
