Showcasing Future LCD Technologies at Display Week 2011 – Some Samsung Highlights

Next-generation display technologies continue to evolve as a flurry of new and more advanced eReaders, tablets, smartphones, TVs and displays. Samsung’s new display technologies are poised to change traditional touch panel technology, as well as enhance the user viewing experience.  Here’s a peek into some of this week’s featured prototype technologies:

         70″ UD 240Hz 3D TV – the world’s First 3D Display of Ultra-Definition (UD)  – four times the resolution of Full HD with an impressive 3840 x 2160 pixels in the active area.

        55” Full HD 480Hz 3D – the first true 3D LCD that realizes 480 frame images a second.

         An advanced display that uses full resolution 3D with active shutter technology at the main display panel, and RealD 3D cinema glasses.  There’s no reduction in 3D resolution because Samsung’s  active shutter panel provides all the benefits of active shuttering functionality.

         55” auto-stereoscopic 2D/3D switchable display

         A prototype panel using new vertical alignment technology to enable faster response times, high contrast and high transmittance for future TV devices

         The most advanced Transparent LCD  for commercial, retail and even home applications

         10.1” (world’s largest) MEMS Display for portable multimedia devices

         World’s thinnest 10.1” Plastic TFT-LCD

         Industry’s first 10.1” PenTile RGBW WQXGA  tablet display – 300 dpi resolution, offering exceptionally low-power consumption

         PenTile prototype that combines three technologies including a PenTile RGBCW multiprimary LCD for a wide gamut display requiring 75% less power.

Samsung is highlighting these developments at the Society for Information Display (SID)’s 49th International Symposium, Seminar and Exhibition (Display Week 2011) in Los Angeles this week. If you’re able to stop by our booth (#707), get ready to be dazzled. If not, stay tuned for more announcements on many of these promising technologies later this year and beyond.
