LG Develops Lower Power LCD Panel

Seoul, Korea - LG Display
said Saturday that it has developed a 47-inch 1080p LCD TV panel that consumes
less electricity than other over 40-inch TVs or even PC monitors measuring more
than 20 inches.

The company said the Full HD LCD panel uses a new vertical
single-side LED backlight technology that can achieve maximum brightness levels
with a low power draw.

The new panel is said to "achieve the world's lowest power consumption
rate among large LCD panels by dramatically reducing the number of LED lamps
used while maintaining a high level of brightness."

LG said it managed to reduce the number of required LED bulbs by
developing a new form of backlight technology in which LED lamps are attached
vertically to a single side of the panel.

The 47-inch LCD panel is said to use 28 watts, which is less than
the power consumption of most 20-inch PC monitors that typical draw between
30~50 watts.

The LCD panel also delivers 400 Nits of brightness suitable for
HDTVs using a three-film structure that helps focus and diffuse light, together
with Local Dimming Technology and energy efficient LED bulbs.

The LCD panel is said to produce strong Full HD picture quality
and has an ultra-slim panel design accented with an 8.5mm bezel.

"Together with our business partners, LG Display has developed
this LCD technology to continue our commitment to improving energy efficiency
with environmentally friendly solutions," stated Shin Ho Kang, LG Display LED
Development Dept. VP. "We will continue to invest in developing more energy
efficient technologies that can bring greater value to both the market and the
environment."
