Samsung introduced a 70W-inch 1,080p LCD TV panel at the International Meeting on Information Displays (IMID) 2006 in Daegu, Korea.
Samsung said to date the largest LCD TV panel measures 65W-inches diagonally with production set during the first half of next year.
Kim San-Soo, Samsung executive VP, said the new large panel HDTV set “sets a new benchmark of excellence in terms of video image reproduction, viewing angle and image quality.”
Samsung said the 70W-inch LCD TV will allow TFT-LCD technology to compete with plasma display panels and projection TVs. No pricing was announced on the product.
The panel offers 1,920 by 1,080p resolution and a conical viewing angle of 180 degrees for multi-viewing audiences. In addition, its video signal is reproduced at 120Hz, compared to a video signal of 60Hz for a conventional full HD LCD panel, enabling rapidly moving video images to be reproduced with crystal clarity.
