Samsung Electronics today raised the curtain on an 82in TFT-LCD screen, claiming it to be the largest in the world.
The Korean electronics giant said that previous technological limitations prevented the development of LCDs of this size and that competitive technologies, such as Plasma Display Panel and Digital Light Processing, were used to produce such large-sized panels.
However, Samsung's seventh-generation Line 7-1 LCD range was produced at the firm's newly opened production complex in Tangjeong, South Korea. At this factory Samsung can produce two 82in panels from a single substrate.
The monster TFT-LCD features Samsung's patented Super Patterned-ITO Vertical Alignment technology to achieve extra-wide viewing angles.
In addition, the product boasts a low-dispersion colour filter and ultra high aperture ratio, achieving a contrast ratio of at least 1200:1 and brightness of 600nit (cd/m). Response times are at 8ms or faster and a high-colour-saturation back-light raises colour saturation to 92 per cent.
Sang Soo Kim, senior vice president and head of the LCD Development Center, said that the device offers a 180-degree viewing angle.
Samsung claims to have developed the first 40in model in August 2001, the first 46in panel in October 2002, the first 57in model in December 2003 and now the first 82in panel.
