Samsung SDI Co. Ltd, a display manufacturing company of the Samsung group, has developed a 102-inch plasma display panel, eclipsing an 80-inch panel the company announced in January.

The 102-inch panel features resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, a brightness of 1,000 candelas, and a contrast of 2,000 to 1.

Samsung SDI will build the plasma display in its Chonan factory in Chungchon Province. Two lines are already operating with a capacity of 130,000 units (counted as 42-inch panels) a month. As part of a previously announced expansion, a third line is slated to begin operating before the year's end, with a capacity of 120,000 units a month.

The 102-inch panel was fabricated from a 102-inch diagonal glass substrate, from which four 50-inch panels can be cut out. Although 42-inch is considered an industry-standard size, Samsung SDI is focusing on 50-inch to 60-inch panels as well, according to a Samsung SDI spokesperson.

Samsung SDI intends to invest about 30 billion won to begin producing large size 80 and 102 in. panels the first half of next year. The company expects these panels to find use in public displays and businesses.
