Samsung announced today that it has developed the world?s first LCD
panel using the next-generation video interface ? "DisplayPort."
Sanctioned by VESA (the Video Electronics Standards Association),
DisplayPort is expected to be the future replacement for DVI, LVDS
and eventually VGA.
For Samsung?s new 30-inch LCD, the DisplayPort interface transmits
graphics data at a total data rate of 10.8Gbps. This speed enables
2560x1600 resolution without any color smear. By using a transmission
speed more than double that of today?s interfaces, Samsung?s new LCD
only requires a single DisplayPort interface, instead of the two DVI
(Digital Visual Interface) ports now used.
In a joint undertaking with Genesis Microchip Inc., Samsung developed
its 30" panel using a new four-lane, 2.7Gbps/lane interface chip. The
interface technology processes 2560x1600 pixels of graphics data at
up to 10 bits of color depth or 1.07 billion colors, a feat that
would normally require at least three DVI or four LVDS interface
Samsung?s new 30" LCD also offers the company?s proprietary Super
Patterned Vertical Alignment (S-PVA) liquid crystal technology for
180° viewing angle, and 300nits brightness.
Mass production of the 30-inch panel is scheduled to begin in the
second quarter of 2008.
