LG.Philips LCD announced today that it has developed a 100-inch TFT-LCD panel, which is the largest in the world according to the company.
LG.Philips LCD's 100-inch LCD panel is approximately 1.5 times larger than the largest currently available LCD panel (82-inches), and is similar in size to the largest plasma display panel (PDP) currently available.
Developed at LG.Philips LCD's P7 - the world's largest seventh generation substrate size (1950 x 2250mm) fabrication line in Paju, South Korea - the 100-inch panel is a wide screen (16:9) LCD TV panel with a screen width and height exceeding 2.2m and 1.2m, respectively.
Using LG.Philips LCD's copper-based interconnect technology, the 100-inch LCD panel is claimed to offer high-definition picture quality without distorting the video signals. Along with a response speed below 5ms, the 100-inch LCD offers 6.22 million-pixels, full HD grade picture quality and can reproduce 1.07 billion colors.
The product also features the latest technologies, such as a maximum 3000:1 contrast ratio, color reproduction of 92 percent, and an omni-directional, 180-degree viewing angle based on Super IPS and super-large compensation film technologies.
LG.Philips LCD's Executive Vice President for Development Center, Sang Deog Yeo, said, "Our development of the 100-inch LCD panel reaffirms that LG.Philips LCD is the global leader in large-area LCD technology. Technological advances for large-area LCD TVs, such as the 100-inch LCD, will act as a catalyst that accelerates customer demand for high picture quality and large screens."
