Samsung’s Big Screen
At its new production complex in Tangjeong, Korea, Samsung has developed the world’s largest 82-inch TFT-LCD.
The company applied its patented Super Patterned-ITO Vertical Alignment (S-PVA) technology to achieve extra-wide viewing angles. In addition, the product boasts a low-dispersion color filter and ultra high aperture ratio, achieving a contrast ratio of at least 1200:1 and brightness of 600nit (cd/m(2)). Response times are at 8ms or faster, providing clear moving picture images. A high-color-saturation backlight raises color saturation to 92% to produce a premium image quality.
Sang Soo Kim, Senior Vice President and Head of the LCD Development Center, states, “Our 82-inch LCD panel proves Samsung Electronics’ technological leadership. It uses our proprietary S-PVA technology, eliminating distortion from all angles and offers a 180-degree viewing angle. With this panel, we have achieved the world’s best performance in terms of contrast ratio, viewing angle and color saturation.”
Samsung is set to begin operations at the world’s first 7th-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-inch (24 per substrate), 26-inch (18 per substrate) and 32-inch (12 per substrate) to 40-inch (8 per substrate) and 46-inch (6 per substrate).
Samsung Electronics is at least one year ahead of the competition in terms of using 7th-generation production technology to make modules of 40 inches, 46 inches and 57 inches. It is therefore in a position to take an early lead in the fast-growing market for large-screen, wall-hanging TVs.
The development of the 82-inch TFT-LCD highlights the smooth launch of Samsung’s and Sony’s joint venture in S-LCD. The 7th-generation line will begin mass production at the end of March.
Samsung Electronics will unveil its 82-inch TFT-LCD at CeBIT 2005, which opens in Hannover, Germany on March 10.
