LG Display has begun mass production of the 17.1-inch LCD panels for Notebook PC with RGB LED backlight technology for the first time in the industry on September 16, 2008.
The RGB LED backlight technology uses LED (Light Emitting Diode) lamps that emit three primary colors of red, green and blue. The color reproduction rate of the LCD with RGB LED backlight reaches up to 105 percent, offering 40 percent more colors and 30 percent better contrast ratio than conventional CCFL models. In addition, the product is also strengthened with more eco-friendly properties, such as being mercury-free.
Despite the superiority of the technology, RGB LED backlight technology has been commercialized only for LCD TVs and monitors until now, due to technical difficulties in mass production.
The mass production of RGB LED backlight LCD for notebook PC is expected to pave the way to speed up the spread of notebook PCs in professional computer graphics and PC game market segments.
"This panel is capable of high-definition display with natural colors, and overcomes the previous technical limitations. LG Display will continue to develop products that not only meet our customers? needs but also exceed their expectations" said Man-Hyo Park, LG Display?s Vice President and Head of Notebook Product Development Department.
