Epson Imaging Devices Corp. has development a 4-inch high-resolution low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) TFT LCD featuring Photo Fine Premia technology, which features a wide viewing angle and a wide color range.

The display produces quality images even when viewed from an angle of 80 from the top, bottom, left, or right and covers 94 percent of the Adobe RGB color gamut, said Epson. The new display is featured in the P-6000/7000 photo viewers to be released worldwide in early September by Seiko Epson Corp.

The dramatic growth in the digital SLR camera market, which expanded by 142 percent in fiscal 2007, and the popularity of mobile phones with built-in DTV receivers and other advanced video capabilities have raised demand for high-value-added displays. Consumers have begun to favor products that enable them to not only store their digital photos, but also share and enjoy them with others, such as digital photo frames and photo viewers. The latter have been a particular focus of attention in recent years. Whereas most photo viewers previously offered only the self-contained functions of checking, saving, and carrying around photos taken by the user, consumers are now seeking models with the ability to share works and zoom in on particular areas of interest.

Photo Fine Premia was developed to meet the demand for displays that enable users to enjoy high-resolution still and moving images anytime, anywhere. Photo Fine Premia combines Epson Imaging Device's Photo Fine Vistarich wide viewing angle technology and Photo Fine Chromarich wide color gamut technology to give users the ability to enjoy color-rich still and moving images from any angle.

The Photo Fine Premia technology in the 4-inch LTPS LCD was developed for the P-6000/P-7000 photo viewers. Epson Imaging Devices intends to broaden the application of this new technology to various fields, including displays for satellite navigation, rear-seat entertainment and other in-car systems; digital still cameras and for digital-TV-compatible multi-functional mobile phones and devices.
