Samsung Electronics has announced developing a 70-inch LCD TV panel for the consumer TV market.
The 70-inch LCD HDTV, the company claims, is the largest LCD TV screen size in diameter, and will be unveiled at the International Meeting on Information Displays (IMID) 2006 to be held at Daegu in Korea, beginning August 23.
Commenting on the new LCD, Kim Sang-Soo, executive vice president, Samsung Electronics, said, "Our new 70-inch LCD is not only significantly larger, but also sets a new benchmark of excellence in terms of video image reproduction, viewing angle, and image quality. We have designed it to dramatically enhance the large screen LCD TV user's viewing experience."
The new LCD panel offers 1.07 billion colors; has full high-definition (HD) resolution of 1,920 pixels by 1,080 pixels; and sports a conical viewing angle of 180 degrees for multi-viewing. The video signal of the panel is reproduced at 120Hz, which is almost double that of a conventional full HD LCD panel, thus enabling crystal-clear reproduction of rapidly moving video images.
Reportedly, the production of new Samsung LCD will begin in the first half of 2007. Pricing will be disclosed later.
