Samsung Electronics Co Ltd has exhibited its 70-inch full-HD LCD for consumer TVs at Flat Panel Display (FPD) International 2006.
It has also showcased advanced mobile displays, including 4.8-inch and 7-inch WVGA screens targeting portable computing, entertainment and communication applications.
The company's 70-inch LCD panel is said to be the first TV display that can reproduce full HD video images at 120Hz, giving it a technological edge over plasma display panels (PDP). Most LCD panels have a 60Hz refresh rate, which will makes the company's new 120Hz 70-inch LCD twice as fast as other LCDs available today, providing crystal clear video reproduction well suited for sporting events and other fast-action programming content.
The 70-inch LCD TV panel is being shown in Japan for the first time at this event. The company 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.
Once it begins mass-producing its 70-inch panels, Samsung said that LCD TVs will compete head-to-head with the largest PDPs and projection TV models worldwide.
