Royal Philips Electronics opened a new production facility for the production of components for the new television screen technology LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) in Böblingen, Germany. The investment volume amounts to EUR 20 million (U.S. $22.9 million). According to the company, the Böblingen site will produce the first mass-produced high-definition panels for the next generation of televisions to be available throughout the industry.

For Philips, LCOS is an important step towards a better picture quality, emphasized Ad Huijser, chief technology officer and member of the Board of Management of Royal Philips Electronics. The technology uses the principle of back projection and reportedly provides extremely high, flicker-free resolution. Projection TV units with large image diagonals can be made flatter, lighter, and more affordable using LCOS, said the company. Philips expects demand for LCOS technology to increase rapidly over the next few years.

The new projection displays are characterized by their efficient light yield and high contrast, according to the company. The image resolution of 1280 x 768 represents approximately one million pixels and means it can be integrated into terminals for high-definition television (HDTV). At the same time, Philips said, it makes text considerably more legible. This is an important requirement for new services, such as Internet TV. A digital interface reportedly also enables a high degree of system integration.
