Samsung develops LED-backlit LCD panels for monitors

MUMBAI: Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. the provider of thin film transistor, liquid crystal display panels, announced that in the second quarter, it will begin producing a 24-inch LCD panel with an LED backlight that enables computer monitors to deliver unprecedented color quality.

With the new 24-inch LCD monitor display, technology demanding consumers, professional graphics designers and digital photographers can get the same true-to-life colors that LCD TVs can provide.The LED-backlit monitor panel has an industry high color saturation level of 111percent of NTSC standard compared to a saturation level of only 72percent of NTSC for conventional monitors and will satisfy consumers used to the crisp colors prevalent in high-definition broadcasting.


The panel‘s 24 inch screen size is optimal for systems equipped with the Windows Vista operating system. While conventional thinking has been that Windows Vista works best with a 22 inch screen, 22 inches is not wide enough to support full-HD . In addition, industry experts now say that 24 inches provides a better Windows Vista fit to also include the Vista right side bar and margins.

The advent of Windows Vista and the spread of HD technology have accelerated the demand for wide-screen monitors delivering true-color imagery. Meanwhile, a steadily increasing number of consumers are using their monitors to watch high quality video images. (174-230 MHz).


The new monitor display also features Samsung‘s Super patterned-ITO vertical alignment technology that provides the widest viewing angle possible - 180 degrees - at the highest contrast ratio for LCD monitors today. It also supports WUXGA resolution of 1,920x1,200 pixels, which is the computer equivalent to full HD resolution.

The new display‘s backlight is environmentally friendly due to the fact that LED backlights do not utilize mercury, an environmentally harmful substance.

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. is a global company in semiconductor, telecommunication, digital media and digital convergence technologies with 2006 parent company sales of US$63.4 billion and net income of US$8.5 billion.
