PRESS RELEASE

The LG 105UC9 105" Curved ULTRA HD TV arrives at Harrods this month

LONDON, 5th February, 2015 - LG Electronics (LG) today launched its largest ever Curved TV in the UK, with the awe-inspiring 105" Curved ULTRA HD LG 105UC9 now available to buy exclusively from Harrods Technology department for £60,000. Delivering a monumental curved screen size and spectacular picture quality, the 105UC9 is LG's first 21:9 aspect ratio Curved ULTRA HD TV, offering a wide viewing angle and the ability to deliver the minutest detail in breathtaking clarity.

The 105UC9's cinematically proportioned 21:9 CineVu screen displays movies as they were made to be seen, ensuring a truly immersive viewing experience at home. To match this incredible IPS 5K display, the 105UC9 also delivers outstanding audio via its built-in 7.2 channel, 150W sound system. Incorporating LG's ULTRA Surround concept and developed in partnership with premium audio products manufacturer Harman Kardon, the speaker array produces a powerful and rich audio experience. The multi-channel system complements the CineVu screen with a sonic performance worthy of an actual movie theatre.

Boasting a 5K screen resolution, the 105UC9 represents a triumph of display technology. In order to overcome the challenge of uneven backlighting in a curved screen, the Thin Film Transistor (TFT) pixel circuit technology was refined, preventing colour leakage and ensuring a superior viewing experience from virtually any angle. The 105UC9 also incorporates LG's webOS Smart+ TV system, which brings together all your favourite catch-up TV, movies, sport and music services into one user friendly menu that is both simple to connect and simple to explore.

"LG is known for its innovative and market leading technologies," said Andrew Mackay, LG Commercial Director - Consumer Electronics (UK & Ireland), "and we're proud to bring our largest ever Curved television to the UK, to be sold exclusively in Harrods. With a resolution of 11 million pixels, the 105-inch Curved Ultra HD panel is proof of our continued leadership in the next generation display market, offering exceptional world-class value to our customers."

Stewart Mancey, Head of Technology at Harrods said: "We are delighted to welcome the LG 105" Curved ULTRA HD TV exclusively to Harrods Technology, as the department continues to drive first-to-market technology and innovation from some of the world's biggest brands."
