HTPS TFT panels

Seiko Epson Corp. has begun volume production of 0.74-inch (1.9cm diagonal) and 0.56-inch (1.4cm diagonal) high-temperature polysilicon (HTPS) TFT panels for 3LCD front projectors compatible with wide XGA (WXGA).

The new panels enhance light efficiency by employing the latest D7 design rule process, which achieves higher aperture ratios. This technology enables users to view bright wide-screen images on large screens.

According to iSuppli Corp., demand for wide-screen-compatible projectors will grow each year from 2008, with the greatest demand growth anticipated for WXGA compatible products. Epson has begun volume production of its new WXGA compatible panels with a view to the creation of 3LCD projectors that can meet such market needs.

The new panels are compatible with 1280 x 800 dot resolution, the most common level of resolution for WXGA, which offers data volumes approximately 1.3 times higher than XGA (1024 x 768 dots). In a business setting, for example, this technology enables presentations that display large volumes of data such as annual performance or multiple charts and graphs on a single screen. For Internet browsing, the technology enables users to simultaneously view multiple browsers or display long pages on a split screen to reduce the stress of scrolling. Compatibility with high-definition screens makes the technology suitable for displaying not only PC data, but also wide-screen images such as high-definition playback and content.

Commercialization of WXGA panels in two types0.56-inch and 0.74-inchwill enable the creation of WXGA-compatible projectors in the 2000-3000-lumen class or higher.
