Samsung's 70-inch LCD panel

Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd has developed a 70-inch LCD panel for use in the consumer TV market. The company said the largest LCD TV screen size is currently 65 inches in diameter, making its latest LCD product the first in its class.

Samsung Electronics Executive VP Kim Sang-Soo said, "Our new 70-inch LCD is not only significantly larger, but also sets a new benchmark of excellence in terms of video image reproduction, viewing angle and image quality. We've designed it to dramatically enhance the large screen LCD TV user's viewing experience."

Samsung said its latest a-Si LCD panel boasts full high-definition resolution (1080p) and a conical viewing angle of 180 for multiviewing audiences. In addition, its video signal is reproduced at 120Hz, compared to a video signal of 60Hz for a conventional full HD LCD panel, the company said, enabling rapidly moving video images to be reproduced with crystal clarity.

Samsung will begin producing the new 70-inch LCD in the first half of 2007. With this new product, the company said it will be in a position to compete head-to-head with plasma display panel and projection TV makers.
