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 said.
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 cost-effective products to the global community,” said Gu Zhihua, director of the flat-panel display center at Fudan University.
