Samsung Set to Unveil 54-Inch LCD TV

Thanks youm0nt...Samsung Electronics is set to show a prototype 54-inch wide-screen high-definition LCD at CES, which begins in Las Vegas on January 9. The panel, for which mass production plans have yet to be decided, is the largest thin film transistor LCD to be announced by any of the world's flat-panel makers. A monitor based on the panel will get its international unveiling at CES, a company spokesperson said.

It has a resolution of 1,920 pixels by 1,080 pixels, which means it has sufficient resolution to support 1,080 line progressive scan digital television, Samsung said in a statement. The screen can also support lower resolutions, including 720 line progressive and standard definition 525 line images. The panel's contrast ratio is 800:1 and it has a 170 degree viewing angle, said Samsung. Word of its development comes just over two months after Samsung began showing a prototype television based on a 46-inch TFT panel. At the time that was the largest panel to have been manufactured by the company.

However, fellow South Korean maker LG Philips LCD took the wraps off a prototype 52-inch wide-screen high-definition TFT panel earlier in December. Samsung's new panel enables the company to regain bragging rights to the world's largest LCD.
