Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a provider of thin-film transistor, liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) panels, has reportedly developed the first 70-inch LCD panel for use in the consumer TV market. Currently, the largest LCD TV screen size is 65 inches in diameter.
Samsung's latest LCD panel boasts full high-definition resolution (1,080 p) and a conical viewing angle of 180 degrees for multi-viewing audiences. In addition, its video signal is reproduced at 120 Hz, compared to a video signal of 60 Hz for a conventional full HD LCD panel, enabling rapidly moving video images to be reproduced with crystal clarity.
Samsung will begin producing the LCD during the first half of 2007, bolstering its position in the ultra-large-screen TV segment. With the introduction of the 70-inch LCD TV, the company will be in a position to compete head-to-head with PDP (plasma display panel) and projection TV makers.
