Samsung Electronics Co, will exhibit the first 70-inch full-HD LCD for consumer TVs at Flat Panel Display (FPD) International 2006. It will also showcase advanced mobile displays here, including 4.8-inch and 7.0-inch WVGA screens targeting portable computing, entertainment and communication applications.Samsung’s new 70-inch LCD panel is the first TV display that can reproduce full HD video images at 120Hz, giving it a technological edge over plasma display panels (PDPs). Most LCD panels have a 60Hz refresh rate, which will make Samsung’s new 120Hz 70-inch LCD twice as fast as other LCDs available today, providing crystal clear video reproduction well suited for sporting events and other fast-action programming content. The Samsung 70-inch LCD TV panel is being shown in Japan for the first time at this, one of the largest international event dedicated entirely to flat panel displays.
Samsung will begin commercial production of its 70-inch, full-HD LCD panels early next year, accelerating the company’s push into high-volume, large-screen TV markets. The largest full-HD LCD TV panel currently in mass production is 65 inches. Once it begins mass-producing its 70-inch panels, Samsung said that LCD TVs will compete head-to-head with the largest PDPs and projection TV models worldwide.
