BEIJING – Television manufacturer TCL said its
Shenzhen-based China Star Optoelectronics Technology
subsidiary has developed the world’s largest
4K HD 3D LCD screen, at 110 inches.
The company formally launched the technology
at a recent ceremony here by donating two of the
mammoth screens to the Great Hall of the People
for public display.
“The successful launch of the 110-inch screen
once again proved TCL’s research and development
capabilities,” Li Dongsheng, TCL chairman and CEO,
said. “Not only will TCL benefit from the development
of this breakthrough technology, all TV manufacturers
in China and overseas, will be able to capitalize on
this revolutionary product design.”
There was no word yet on plans to introduce the
LCD in the U.S. or how much the set will cost.
TCL is calling the technology “China Star” to mark
China as “the third country to have successfully developed
high-end display technology, behind Japan
and South Korea.”
China Star technology utilizes 4K by 2K (4,096
by 2,160 pixels) panels, active 3D technology, multitouch
technology, intelligent and dynamic backlight
technology, and ultra-high brightness of 800 nits, and it reproduces 92 percent of the
NTSC color gamut.
TCL said the specs “represent the
highest standards in the industry currently.”
The screen display area measures
3.34 square meters, the largest LCD
in the world, the company said.
It is equipped with the TCL’s selfdeveloped
Fine Stereo Performance
(FSP) technology application.
The display also includes major
breakthroughs in the use of high-end
lithography, oversized partial affixed
technology and advanced backlight
techniques, China Star Optoelectronics
Technology CEO He Chengming
Concurrently, the China Star technology
is in line with industry trends
and consumer demands.
“China will replace Japan and
South Korea as the world leader in
TV display screens in
terms of manufacturing
and R&D in three
to five years, and will
provide a higher level
of quality and more
to the global
community,” said Gu
Zhihua, director of
the flat-panel display
center at Fudan University.
