Samsung Showcases 70" HD LCD At FPD International 2006
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. will exhibit the first 70-inch full-HD LCD for consumer TVs at Flat Panel Display (FPD) International 2006. It will also showcase mobile displays here, including 4.8-inch and 7.0-inch WVGA screens targeting portable computing, entertainment and communication applications.
Samsung's new 70-inch LCD panel is the first TV display that can reproduce full HD video images at 120Hz, giving it a technological edge over plasma display panels (PDPs). According to the press release, most LCD panels have a 60Hz refresh rate, which will make Samsung's new 120Hz 70-inch LCD twice as fast as other LCDs available today.
The Samsung 70-inch LCD TV panel is being shown in Japan for the first time at this, one of the largest international event dedicated entirely to flat panel displays. Samsung will begin commercial production of its 70-inch, full-HD LCD panels early next year, accelerating the company's push into high-volume, large-screen TV markets. The largest full-HD LCD TV panel currently in mass production is 65 inches.
Also at FPD International 2006, Samsung is unveiling 4.8-inch and 7.0-inch displays with WSVGA resolution for use in ultra-mobile PC (UMPC) devices and mini-PCs. WSVGA (1,600 pixels per row by 600 rows) is the optimal resolution for Internet browsing today, which presents design challenges for high resolution mobile displays. Samsung has increased the aperture ratio of its 4.8-inch model by applying a single-crystal-like silicon manufacturing process technology that improves electron mobility and enables smaller TFT geometries. Using a low power, dot inversion driving scheme, allows Samsung also to reduce the display's power consumption.
Rounding out Samsung's FPD International 2006 showcase are 40-inch, 46-inch and 82-inch digital information displays, an A4-sized plastic electrophoretic display (EPD) using an e-Ink design, and a 7-inch plastic LCD.
