LG’s 325-Inch 8K Direct-View LED TV is Worth $2 Million

There are TVs and then there is the new LG Direct View LED Extreme Home Cinema set. At a whopping 325-inches diagonally, the behemoth new release isn’t just a mouthful to say, it’s a whole wall-full of screen real estate, with a reported price tag of over AUD$2 million. If a new Lamborghini doesn’t thrill you, or diamonds just don’t cut it, this is one luxury addition that might deliver the goods.

The release comes as part of LG’s 2021 Direct View LED (DVLED) Extreme Home Cinema Sets lineup. Previously, the enormous entertainment units were only available to commercial clients, however, for this year’s release, LG has opened the up to the rest of us. There are a number of TVs on offer, ranging from 106-inches to the aforementioned monster at 325-inches and spread across different configurations, from 2K to 8K.

What set this lineup apart from regular LEDs, apart from the size, is that they are actually LCD TVs with LED backlighting. According to LG, a Direct View LED display creates the images directly by the LED for higher contrast, brightness, colour gamut, and better viewing angles. The 325-inch 8K TV ranges from two million to 33 million diodes, depending on resolution and can be configured in 16:9 aspect sizes from 81-inches to 325-inches diagonal, and even in wall-filling 32:9 UltraStretch layouts.

“This magnificent 8K display is the perfect choice for businesses looking to create a “larger than life” atmosphere, thanks to the incredible impact of an 8k display with a massive 325″ screen,” LG wrote in the official product description. “It features a pixel-pitch of just 0.93mm, LG’s Deep Black Technology, and an impressive contrast ratio of 150,000:1 (@10 lux). Add in the power of an Alpha 7 processor and LG’s HDR10 Pro2, and you’ll see images as the content creator intended, with vivid colours, breathtaking contrast, and ultrafine detail.”

For TV junkies, the Alpha 7 processor is a big deal. The AI-Powered processor recognises and analyses the original content to optimizes image clarity and sharpness. It then works in conjunction with an image sensor to optimize the display brightness level to changing ambient light conditions.

LG has yet to release pricing for the new DVLED lineup, but CNET is reporting that the top-of-the-line model will run you a cool USD$1.7 million (AUD$2.32 million). Putting that in perspective, that’s just under double the average price of a home in Sydney or around the same cost as six Bentley Bentaygas. The good news is that it comes with a complimentary five-year customer service package which the brand values at $30,000. If the average TV just isn’t cutting it, it might be time to start saving your pennies.
