Samsung develops 40 inch LCD panel

South Korea's Samsung Electronics says it has developed a 100-centimeter (40-inch) diagonal-width liquid crystal display (LCD) panel.

The new display, which Samsung says is the first 40-inch LCD to be developed, has a resolution of 1,280 pixels by 768 pixels which is equivalent to XGA resolution. This is higher than normal television and means the display is suitable for computer use or high-definition television, the latter an area where Samsung hopes to promote the display.

The company began working on designing the display 10 months ago, it said in a statement.

It is widescreen, although at 15:9 differs from the standard 16:9 aspect ratio. Its physical measurements are 98.1 by 63.0 centimeters and it weighs 12 kilograms, the company said in a statement.

Other technical specifications include a 170 degree viewing angle, response time of 12 milliseconds, ability to display 16.7 million colors, contrast ratio of 600:1 and a brightness of 500 candela per square meter. Power consumption is given at 180 watts.
