NEC has taken the wraps off a high-resolution TFT LCD (thin-film transistor liquid-crystal display) which the company says can generate a picture that approaches the quality of photographic prints.
The 9.4-inch display boasts a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels or a total of 1.92 million pixels, NEC said in a statement. The display packs in 211 pixels per inch compared to between 80 and 100 pixels per inch for standard LCD displays found in PCs.
The level of resolution is similar to photos in terms of detail and depth of colour, the Japanese vendor said in the statement.
Using a new manufacturing technology, NEC said it will be able to start producing the displays by the end of next year, according to a spokesperson at the company.
Pricing for the display has yet to be determined, the NEC spokesperson added.
Japanese makers have been boosting production of TFT LCDs over the past several months as the displays are increasingly being used in place of CRTs (cathode ray tubes) in televisions and PC monitors.
NEC will begin shipping a new 21.3-inch TFT LCD in September, according to the company.
