Samsung Display makes some of the best performing panels out there, particularly in mobile—it's Super AMOLED displays always seem to impress us. Going forward, Samsung Display will devote even more resources to its organic light-emitting diode (OLED) efforts by spinning off its OLED manufacturing arm and shifting employees from its traditional liquid crystal display (LCD) business. "Samsung Display separated the company's OLED business division and more of Samsung Display's workforce joined the OLED business unit. The latest decision was part of the ongoing Samsung Group-initiated efforts to restructure... Read more...
When it comes to giving presentations in the modern era, whiteboards are out and large touchscreen displays are in. That's the basis for Dell's new 70-inch Interactive Conference Room Monitor (C7017T), the company's first interactive touchscreen panel in the 70-inch category with a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080 at 60Hz) resolution. An interactive panel this size isn't necessarily for one person. Dell says it's a great option for collaborative projects, offering 10-point hand touch and packaged with two styluses. It also features an anti-glare and anti-smudge coating on the cover glass for easy viewing,... Read more...
A couple of weeks ago, Blizzard rolled out a patch to the PC version of its mega-hit Overwatch that removed support for ultrawide resolutions (which would include multi-monitors). That move spurred a huge discussion on whether or not ultrawide resolutions give too much of an advantage over those using regular displays -- a discussion that's not going to have everyone in total agreement. With a new forum post made by a Blizzard developer, though, we can see that the company might just regret the move it had made. Overwatch's 'Game Director' Jeff Kaplan said in response to a question about 21:9 support,... Read more...
For many users, one monitor just isn’t enough. Sometimes, two displays won’t cut it either. If your latest project has you searching for multiple, high-end monitors, you’re likely going to be looking at professional workhorses like NEC’s MultiSync EA305WMi. The venerable display maker designed this 30-inch monitor specifically for multi-monitor configurations and added something it calls ControlSync technology, so you can manage multiple displays from a single interface. The MultiSync EA305WMi is a 30-inch (29.8-inch viewable area) monitor with a 2560x1600 resolution in a 16:10 aspect ratio. Although... Read more...
It's already impressive that many of today's smartphones have higher display resolutions than the big screen TVs in our living room. That doesn't mean you can expect stagnation when it comes to smartphone displays. Just the opposite, the production cost of superior AMOLED panels for smartphones is now lower than the cost of LCDs. According to the latest research by IHS Technology, it costs $14.30 to produce a 5-inch AMOLED panel, versus $14.60 for an LCD equivalent. That wasn't the case a year ago when 5-inch AMOLED panels ran $17.10 each, making them more expensive than LCD panels that ran $15.70... Read more...
The ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q has a lot going for it. ASUS filled the spec sheet with desirable technologies, including the use of an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel. It's also the first monitor to boast both a 165Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-Sync support. But for all that it has going for it, there have been numerous user complaints about an apparent backlight bleed issue. Some have even accused ASUS of shipping out used panels. What does ASUS have to say about the matter? In a lengthy blog post on the subject, ASUS reassures buyers that it uses the "industry's most stringent screening criteria" and... Read more...
In its ongoing quest to build increasingly thinner and lighter devices, Apple seems to have taken ownership of a facility in Taiwan that's tasked with making OLED panels and researching new display technologies. It's apparently a hush-hush operation, as employees in and around the plant won't talk about the site or what they're up to.Apple is attracted to OLED technology because they're slimmer than traditional LCDs and don't require a backlight, which makes them more energy efficient. They're also bright, making them solid candidates for mobile devices like iPhones and iPads where portability... Read more...
By any metric, 8K is an incredible resolution. In fact, given that most HD content is still published in 1080p, the same could be said about 4K. With that, "incredible" in relation to 8K could mean different things to different people. 4K packs in four times the pixels of 1080p, while 8K takes that and multiplies it by four once again. We're talking 33,177,600 pixels. For some more perspective, here's our handy comparison graphic: Most current 1080p desktop monitors being sold today hover around the 22-inch form-factor, while 4K can be had in monitors 27-inch and above. So it stands to reason that... Read more...
Philips is getting ready to release what it claims is the world's first quantum dot desktop monitor, the 276E6ADS. It's a 27-inch display with a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution, which is nothing to write home about, though what's interesting about the monitor is that it supposedly delivers 99 percent coverage of the Adobe RGB color space. There's an excellent primer on Wired about quantum dot technology, which was a point of focus at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas earlier this year. Quantum dots are semiconductor nanocrystals engineered to emit light. They have narrow light... Read more...
It's beginning to look like there's really no limit to how far display vendors will take their resolutions. While the world is still trying to catch up to 4K, some companies have been promoting 5K, and at this past CES, we even saw an 8K being exhibited. Next up? As far as Samsung seems to be concerned, it's 11K. Let's put things into perspective here. 4K is 3840x2160, and is by all accounts a seriously large resolution. 5K is 5120x2880 and then we have 8K, which checks in at 7680x4320. As you can tell, moving up the "K" scale doesn't signify minor jumps, but rather enormous ones. So where does... Read more...
Notebook screens will be getting even slimmer, thanks to a touch screen technology from LG Display. The Advanced In-Cell (AIT) panels have already appeared on the LG G4 and other smartphones, but this is the first time that the technology will be used on larger devices like notebooks. AIT shaves as much as a millimeter off the thickness of an ordinary notebook screen. That may not sound like much of a difference, but notebook sizes and weights have become factors in many buyers’ purchasing decisions, so competition among manufacturers has been focused on those areas. AIT hits both size and weight... Read more...
Just when you think you've seen everything, here comes Samsung with the industry's first mirror and transparent OLED display panels. The South Korean outfit rolled out the displays at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre and is pitching the displays as being suitable for personalized shopping and informational browsing. Paired with Intel's Real Sense technology, Samsung's displays are able to create an interactive closet or "self-modeling" wardrobe so that consumers can see what different types of clothes and jewelry would look like on them. It's a rather unique... Read more...
How many pixels can you cram on a smartphone display? A whole bunch, is our technical answer. As proof of this, Sharp announced the creation of the world's first (and of course only) 5.5-inch mobile display with an Ultra HD 4K resolution. Yes, that's 3840x2160, which works out to a mighty impressive 806 pixels per inch. Citing a Greek-language blog that seemingly managed to obtain information and Japanese-language press images from Sharp, PhoneArena says the 4K smartphone display is scheduled to go into mass production in 2016. That means you should start to see flagship devices from various smartphone... Read more...
LG will unveil its flagship G4 smartphone later this month, but if you're looking for something to salivate over in the meantime, the company's display division just announced the launch of a quad high definition (QHD) LCD panel for smartphones with several noteworthy features, including richer and more accurate colors with a 120 percent color gamut. It's a 5.5-inch In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel with a 2560x1440 resolution, so in terms of size and pixel density (538 pixels per inch), it's already an impressive display, at least on paper. To make it even better, LG combined a blue LED chip with... Read more...
