LAS VEGAS (AP) — LG is unveiling a 55-inch TV that sports "ultrahigh-definition" resolution with more than 8 million pixels, kicking off what is likely to be a mini-obsession with the latest super-clear format at the International CES gadget show in Las Vegas.

The model announced Monday is the smallest in a lineup that includes 65-inch and 84-inch versions. But the smaller size — and likely smaller price tag — begins the parade of TV makers that are seeking to bring ultra-HD to the masses.

For a few years, there won't likely be a mainstream standard for getting native ultra-HD movies and TV shows to the screen either by disc or broadcast. But the Korean electronics maker says it has upscaling technology that takes images of lesser quality and renders them in high detail.
