Samsung showcases its largest line-up of displays during the IMID (International Meeting on Information Display) 2005, an international
information display conference and exhibition held in Seoul from July 19 to 23.
Highlights from Samsung?s exhibition booth at IMID are:
- 40" Active Matrix OLED: The 40? OLED display is the world?s largest and first
to be developed as a single-sheet glass plate with WXGA (1280 x 800 pixels)
HD-class resolution using an amorphous silicon backplane. It has a maximum
brightness of 600 nits, a shade ratio (black-and-white contrast ratio) of at
least 5,000:1, and color saturation of at least 80%. Its ultra-slim design
allows for the development of TV sets that are a mere 3cm thick or less.
- 82" LCD TV Panel: The largest LCD ever developed, the 82" LCD was produced at
the company's newest and the world?s largest TFT-LCD production line, the 7th
Generation (1,870mmx2,200mm glass substrates) line located in Tangjeong. It
features a viewing angle of 180˚ and boasts a color saturation of 92% and video
quality response speeds of 8ms or less.
- "Always-on" Section Display: A mobile phone display that requires virtually
no power on standby mode, Samsung?s section display has a dual-window structure
that divides the ?indicator? display and main window. The indicator window,
which only consumes 0.45mw of power, shows the time, day of week, remaining
battery life, antenna status and mailbox status.
- 2.22" RGB Backlight LCD: The first public display in Asia, Samsung's 2.22"
RGB backlight LCD boasts an enhanced color saturation of up to 82%, which is a
vast improvement over the conventional 60% rendering. It uses a three-wave LED
light source of red, green and blue instead of the traditional two-wave, white
LED of blue and yellow. The resulting display produces lifelike colors and hues
enabling a new generation of mobile multimedia devices.
- "Xmitter" LED Technology: The Xmitter technology incorporates Samsung's
proprietary optical structural design to enhance light efficiency by more than
40% over the conventional side scan method. Power consumption was reduced by
40% compared to existing LED products and color saturation stands at 107% while
brightness is at 500 nits. The product is drawing attention as the
next-generation light source as it meets new environmental regulations which
will go into effect in Europe in 2006.
