Samsung Creates 82-Inch TFT LCD
Samsung announced Monday it has built the world's largest TFT LCD display for TV, which measures 82 inches. The monster LCD will be showcased at CeBIT in Germany later this week, and serve to dispel the misconception that TFT displays cannot reach sizes attained by plasma or rear-projection televisions.
The 82-inch LCD boasts a 1200:1 contrast ratio and 8ms response time. The screen is the first developed by S-LCD - a joint venture between Samsung and Sony. Samsung says it plans to invest over $2 billion in the development of a 7th generation LCD production line to compete with market rival L.G. Phillips.
