Samsung Unveils New LCDs at SID

At Display Week 2009 in San Antonio, hosted by the Society of Information Display (SID), Samsung Electronics debuted new eco-friendly, low-power consumption panels, plus light and ultra-slim panels for future markets.

At Display Week 2009 in San Antonio, hosted by the Society of Information Display (SID), Samsung Electronics debuted new eco-friendly, low-power consumption panels, plus light and ultra-slim panels for future markets.

Samsung's new 55-inch diagonal TV, 14-inch diagonal notebook PC, and 23-inch diagonal monitor panel are all considered environmentally-friendly products that reduce power consumption by 40 percent through "active dimming" technology, according to the company. The monitor consumes 5.7 watts, which Samsung claims is the lowest level of power consumption attained so far by a similar-sized monitor.

According to Samsung officials, the active dimming technology reduces power consumption of edge-lit LED backlighting, while enhancing the panel's contrast ratio.

Samsung has also adopted LED backlighting technology for its thinnest IT panels, which include a 1.7-mm thin, 12.1-inch diagonal notebook panel and 3.5-mm thin, 24-inch monitor panel. The monitor weighs 120 grams.

Additionally, Samsung is showcasing a 52-inch diagonal, 9.8-mm thick TV panel, which features local-dimming technology and edge-LED backlighting. A 40-inch edge-lit LED TV panel is also on display.

The company's next generation of display products includes its first printable oxide TFT-LCD panel, a 15-inch diagonal LCD designed with blue-phase-mode technology, and a 10.2-inch color e-paper technology. Anticipating a surge in demand for touch panels in conjunction with the launch of Windows 7, Samsung also planned to exhibit a 10.1-inch diagonal integrated-touch notebook panel.
