The MIPTV Fair has been held in Cannes and spotlit the latest developments in television. High definition television (4K) and 3D attracted lots of attention. Huge screens up to 84 inches were on display. At around 20,000 euros, they are expensive, but of course prices are bound to fall as the technology goes mainstream.
Mathieu Corradini, the Category Manager at LG Electronics France, explained: “We have resolution which is twice as defined as traditional high definition images. We really do have two times 1920 × 1080, which today achieves 4K. Four thousand lines on the screen. The other advantage of this screen is that it has a Magic Remote Control, which gets you into the Smart Menu of a connected i-television where you can launch various applications if you’re connected to the internet and via a service which we use along with all our partners defined on this home page.”
