TORONTO, Dec. 19, 2013 /CNW/ - LG Electronics (LG) today announced it
will be unveiling the world's first 21:9 aspect ratio CURVED ULTRA HD
TV (Model 105UB9) at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES)

(measured diagonally) 105UB9 is officially the largest curved TV ever
This awe-inspiring TV offers magnificent picture quality and a wide
viewing angle with the ability to render the minutest detail in
breathtaking clarity to create an unprecedented level of viewer
immersion. The 105UB9's cinematically proportioned 21:9 CinemaScope
screen is ideal for enjoying movies as they were meant to be enjoyed.
Another advantage of the extra-wide screen is that it enables users to
access viewing information on the side of the screen without blocking
any of the ongoing action.
