Samsung develops new cost-effective back light unit for LCD televisions
Samsung Electro-Mechanics has developed a new cost-effective back light unit (BLU) to be used in production of liquid-crystal display televisions. The new BLU, produced using Samsung’s own fluorescent technology, reduces the number of light-emitting diodes used by 35 percent, effectively cutting the production cost by 50 percent compared to other BLUs.
The new cost-effective back light unit provides faster response speed and higher resolution while reducing blurry afterimages. Samsung plans to begin mass production starting next month and use the BLUs for production of 40-inch-and-larger LCD televisions.
