LG.Philips Ultra-Slim 42-inch Full HD 120Hz Panel
LG.Philips announced today that it plans to launch a 42-inch TFT-LCD TV panel that is substantially thinner than conventional panels, at only 19.8 mm, in the first quarter of 2008. LG.Philips Ultra-Slim 42-inch Full HD 120Hz Panel is 40 percent thinner and 10 percent lighter than conventional 42-inch LCD TV panels. Despite its slim profile, the panel still manages to incorporate cutting edge 120Hz technology, which eliminates motion blur, and full HD resolution, which is twice as sharp as normal HD resolution. LG.Philips LCD used a cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) backlight on this panel, which kept production costs lower than using a comparable LED backlight.
LG.Philips ultra-slim 42-inch LCD panel will be on display at FPD International 2007 in Yokohama, Japan, from October 24 to 26.
