Samsung SDI Co. announced it has successfully developed the world's largest high-density (HD) 102-in plasma display panel (PDP).
"A PDP larger than 100-in had been regarded as technically impossible, but we have done it, succeeding in both size and brightness," said Samsung SDI Co.
The display is larger than anything on the market including cathode ray tubes (CRT), liquid crystal displays (LCD), and projection displays. Previously, Samsung SDI developed the 80-in PDP in January.
The 102-in full HD PDP has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 offering a brightness level of 1000 candelas per square meter, which is equivalent to the amount of light thrown off by 1000 candles burning in a single square meter, according to the company.
The screen also has a contrast ratio of 2000 to 1, meaning it can produce 2000 shades of a color to produce natural verisimilitude.
Samsung will introduce the 102-in PDP product in January 2005, with production scheduled to start at its factory in Cheonan, South Chungcheong Province, some 80 kilometers south to Seoul, in the first half of 2005, the company said. (Xinhua via COMTEX)
