52-inch multi-touch screen, 42-inch Transflective LCD, 47-inch double sided LCD and multi-vision display among company?s CES public display technology zone highlights.
LG.Philips LCD?s new technologies for public displays center on increasing interactivity and viewability. Multi-touch interface capabilities increase interactivity by allowing users to manipulate objects on screen, using both hands at once and even offering the precision necessary to recognize handwriting. Another technology, transflective backlights, tackles one of the key challenges in developing public displays: readability in all lighting conditions, including direct sunlight.
According to Chris Connery, Vice President of DisplaySearch, "The public display market for larger size (26-inch +) flat panel products alone is projected to grow from under one million units shipped in 2006 to over 3.5 million units by 2011, representing a CAGR of over 31 percent." Connery added.
LG.Philips LCD?s public display products featured at CES 2008 include:
- 52-inch Multi-touch Screen ? LG.Philips LCD?s 52-inch multi-touch panel for public and interactive displays is not only the world?s largest, it is also one of the most responsive, able to recognize input from either a touch of a finger or more precise writing instruments. It uses an infrared image sensor that gives it the ability to recognize two separate touch points as well as gestures. It boasts some of the industry?s highest specifications, with a 90 Hz touch response time, 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution and a light transmission rate of 95 to 100 percent.
47-Inch Triple View LCD ? LG.Philips LCD?s 47-inch Triple View LCD features Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, can reproduce 1.07 billion colors and has a brightness of 250 nits. This display can be used at store directories and advertising at shopping malls. By splitting the light from the panel into separate paths, it is able to show three completely different images to people standing at different angles relative to the display.
47-inch Double-sided LCD for Public Displays
LG.Philips LCD?s 47-inch Double-sided LCD is two-sided display that uses a single backlight. At only 70 mm thick, it is 30 percent thinner than conventional models, but its luminance of 500 nits equals that of regular panels.
42-inch Transflective LCD for Outdoor Use
LG.Philips LCD?s 42-inch transflective display for outdoor use boasts an 1,500 cd/m2 luminance in outdoor light, improving daytime readability. The display is equally effective at night, relying on the power of its backlight. By adopting a special transflective technology, LG.Philips LCD has developed a backlight that greatly enhances the viewability of an LCD panel during all times of the day.
84-inch Multi-vision Multi-touch LCD for Interactive Public Displays
LG.Philips LCD?s flagship multi-touch display is an 84-inch model created by conjoining four 42-inch panels in a two-by-two array. This acts as a single enormous display with multi-touch capabilities across its entire surface. A screen bezel width of 15mm adds to the panel?s seamless look and feel. The display also has Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, an omni-directional 180-degree viewing angle and impressive 500 cd/m2 brightness.
CES 2008 will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) from January 7 through 10, 2008.
