Samsung Electronics announced that it has developed an 82-in TFT-LCD. This full HD image quality TFT-LCD panel was developed at the company's new production complex in Tangjeong, Korea. The seventh generation production facility uses glass substrates that measure 1.87 m by 2.20 m.
Samsung can produce two 82-in panels from a single substrate. Previously, technological limitations prevented the development of LCDs of this size and competitive technologies, such as PDP and DLP technologies, were used to produce such large-sized panels.
Samsung is set to begin operations at the seventh generation TFT-LCD production line at Tangjeong, Korea. This facility can be used to produce the company's full line-up of LCD modules for TV: from 23-in, 26-in, and 32-in to 40-in and 46-in.
The development of the 82-in TFT-LCD marks the launch of Samsung's and Sony's joint venture in S-LCD. The seventh generation line will begin mass production at the end of March.
Samsung Electronics will unveil its 82-in TFT-LCD at CeBIT 2005, which opens in Hannover, Germany on March 10.
