Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd has developed an 82-inch thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) TV panel, which the company claims is the largest produced to date.

The company developed the 82-inch panel at its 7th generation fab slated to come online at the end of this month in Tangjeong, Korea. The 7th-generation line will begin mass production at the end of March.

The panel is the first product from S-LCD Corp., a joint venture announced by Samsung and Japan-based Sony Corp. last year. Samsung will use the fab primarily to build LCD modules for 23-, 26-, 32-, 40- and 46-inch flat-panel LCD TVs.

The 7th generation fab uses glass substrates that measure 1.87-by-2.20m. Two 82-inch substrates can be produced from a single glass substrate.

The 82-inch LCD panel uses Samsung's super patterned-ITO vertical alignment (S-PVA) technology to achieve extra-wide viewing angles. In addition, the panel has a low-dispersion color filter and ultra high aperture ratio, achieving a contrast ratio of at least 1,200:1 and brightness of 600nit (cd/m?). Response times are 8ms or faster.
