Samsung will unveil an array of LCD panels for monitors, TVs and digital information displays at FPD International 2007, in Yokohama, Japan, October 24-26.
At what is one of the world's largest trade shows dedicated to flat panel displays, Samsung will introduce a 40-inch (101.6cm) diagonal, Full HD, LCD TV panel only 10 millimeters thick. This new display has the same profile as 10-20 inch LCDs designed for desktop monitors. Its bezel has been reduced from a conventional 3.0cm (30mm) to 1.5cm (14.6mm). The panel, using an LED backlight, reproduces 92 percent of the NTSC standard for color saturation and features low power consumption of 90 watts or less, according to Samsung.
For notebook PCs, Samsung will unveil premium LCD panels with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Available in 16-inch (40.6cm) and 18.4-inch (46.7cm) screen sizes, these new panels allow notebook users to optimally view high definition movies, digital TV and next-generation gaming, all of which were designed for a 16:9 aspect ratio. In addition, Samsung will show its new 15.4-inch (39.1cm) LCD with an active, white-LED backlight.
At FPD International, Samsung also will exhibit its new 22-inch desktop monitor LCD with a next-generation DisplayPort interface approved by the Video Electronics Standards Association that enhances the use of high-quality graphics (8 bits or higher).
In the digital information display (DID) area, Samsung will spotlight a 46-inch model with a brightness level of 1,500nits, triple that delivered by LCD panels designed for TV viewing. The featured 46-inch model has a bezel no more than 10 millimeters thick, to facilitate the formation of video walls comprised of multiple panels side by side.
In the mobile display section of its FPD exhibit, Samsung is featuring a seven-inch display with an embedded touch screen on its upper glass layer. It also will show a 2.1-inch LCD with sensor-based automatic brightness control that adjusts the brightness of the backlight to match ambient lighting, while lowering power consumption by around 25 percent.
In addition, Samsung will spotlight next-generation concepts such as a 14.3-inch plastic display, 8.1-inch e-paper, and a 14.1-inch active-matrix OLED.
