Samsung LCD TV
Samsung Recaptures World's Largest LCD Title
Soon after Sharp announced the world’s largest production LCD television in October, 2005 we knew someone was itching to top it. It was just a question of which company would be the first to do it. After all, Sharp set the new standard in big screen LCD with its 65" Aquos LCD TV. Consequently, a war of development started between Sharp (Japan), LG (Korea), and Samsung (Korea) for LCD domination.
Samsung rose to the challenge and developed an LCD model that far exceeded the achievement of Sharp. Sharp’s 65" LCD panel was exceeded by Samsung’s 82" TFT liquid crystal display. Kim Sang-Soo, President of Samsung says “Our 82 inch model proves Samsung’s technological leadership. The development of the 82-inch model broke the generally accepted notion that an LCD screen has a 40 inch size limit…”
Samsung’s new LCD panel was made from one 1870 mm x 2200 mm glass substrate. This LCD sheet is being made in Tangjong, South Korea, where Samsung has its largest LCD facility. The substrate from which the 82" LCD panel is cut measures a full 97" inches; could this mean a 97" model is on the way?
The only information we have so far about the release of Samsung’s 82" LCD model is that it is estimated to be released in the early part of 2007. Currently, no information on how much it will cost is available. The new Samsung LCD will feature full HD at a 1080P with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution.
Samsung is the world’s largest manufacturer of LCD panels. The research Samsung has performed to perfect digital TV technology has provided considerable dividends to the consumer electronics market. The first quarter of 2006 is already proving to be a breakthrough year for the Korean manufacturer. Revolutionizing DLP with a new LED DLP display was a good start for not only increasing the brand recognition of Samsung, but defining itself as an industry leader in LCD technology. It’s no wonder that Samsung announced a 40% increase in profit for its 2006, Q1.
