This 325 “screen costs as much as a new helicopter
Is there a screen that is too big? LG’s new line of Direct View LED Extreme Home Cinema displays are the latest to test this question, and the more expensive setups cost as much as an actual movie theater, or somewhere around the price of the helicopter you get. could use to haul your new TV through your roof.
Yes, these are real products that LG sells to anyone with a large enough bank account. And while the power consumption, nightmarish upkeep, and the need for neck stretching before playing Deathloop are all scary to think of, having a stupidly large TV with its own orbit is a hell of a flex.
The sizes for this family of theater displays start at a whopping 81 inches and go up to 589 inches of high fidelity boost with resolutions ranging from 2K to 8K. These are the most absurd screens we’ve seen from LG since they showed a $ 87,000 Rollable OLED TV Last year. What makes Direct View LEDs better than your regular LED TV is that they offer higher brightness and contrast and are designed for rooms with a lot of windows (you know, like your giant glass mansion) and high ambient lighting.
If you are more of an ultra-wide enthusiast, you can opt for the Dual4K ultra-expandable screens, which, combined, stretch 589 inches from the living room wall or over 70 feet from the living room wall. Eternal destiny if it’s an easier visual.
Anyone looking to perpetuate their mansion’s game room should lean into the 325 “8K Home Cinema screen and put your local cinema to shame with its expansive 160-degree viewing angle. The screen weighs over 2,000 pounds and has a brightness of over 1200 nits Sunscreen not included.
Each display will come with a controller loaded with LG’s WebOS, LG’s high-resolution content playback interface, which is a sophisticated TV chat for a box where you plug your PlayStation 5 or Extreme gaming PC or stream all your favorite shows.
“It truly is the supercar of home display tech, delivering a handcrafted quality and performance that appeals to those with luxurious lifestyles who want something that is not only immersive but also very exclusive,” said LG Electronics USA vice president of DVLED displays. , Dan Smith in a press release. “LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema Display technology is designed to last 100,000 hours before reaching half-life, which means it could deliver stunning visuals for over a decade.”
Once installed, you’ll receive on-site training, twice-yearly “health checks” for three years, and LG Connected Care (which allows LG to remotely monitor your display’s performance) and a five-year warranty. . These services are valued at around $ 30,000, according to LG.
You might be wondering how much these ridiculous screens cost? Well Smith told our friends to TechRadar that Extreme Home Cinema will start around $ 70,000 up to $ 1.7 million. That’s right, for the price of a modest yacht, you too can throw the most impressive LAN party in history.
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to walk into a Best Buy and load one of these displays in the trunk of your car. LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema displays have to be specially ordered from LG, which I’m pretty sure involves a credit check.
