Remember than 1366x768 was "good enough," even for flagship notebooks? No longer, and we couldn't be more pleased about the raised expectations. Consumers far and wide are growing used to seeing high-res panels, with "Retina-level" quality becoming more of the norm and less of the exception. Toshiba's Kirabook is one of the first Windows-based Ultrabooks to launch with a panel that's denser than 1080p, but it looks like Samsung won't be too far behind. The company has just announced some new advancements on the display front at SID 2013, including a Full HD (1920×1080) mobile AMOLED display... Read more...
Are you investing in yourself? In your business? How about investing $655 million? That's with LG Display is doing, as it coughs up a huge chunk of change to support its new eighth-generation OLED TV panel line. That's a massive bet on the future of OLEDs and flat-panels in general, particularly in a market that's well known for having extremely thin margins. The new extension will be built at an existing plant in Paju, South Korea, with the initial focus to be on WRGB OLED evaporation. Work will get underway during Q1 of this year, with mass production scheduled for the first half of 2014 at a... Read more...
Edge-to-edge glass is the new "in" thing, as witnessed on such beautiful devices as the Motorola RAZR M. ViewSonic's hoping to grab a little bit of that attention with its new VX70Smh-LED series of LCDs. The company just introduced the 27" VX2770Smh-LED, 23" VX2370Smh-LED and 22" VX2270Smh-LED, all of which boast a frameless bezel, SuperClear IPS panel and a Full HD (1080p) screen resolution. These also pack 178-degree viewing angles, base mounted speakers and a host of video inputs, including HDMI and DVI. The 27" VX2770Smh-LED and 23" VX2370Smh-LED will be available in early October for respective... Read more...
Got a 60" HDTV? Your neighbor might. But what if you could say you had a 60" HDTV that wrapped around the corner of a wall? Now that'd be a talking point. Evidently, LG Display will be developing a unique technology for an ultra high-def flexible OLED display that's 60" diagonal. The problem? It'll take until 2017 to create, but it'll probably be worth the wait. LG Display will lead up a group of companies working on the goal, including Avaco, which is said to be an equipment maker for display production. Outside of making dreams come true in the HDTV industry, it'll also be used (potentially,... Read more...
Ouch. Toshiba is the latest panel maker to feel the pinch after being fined a whopping $87 million by a U.S. jury in a price fixing verdict. This week, Toshiba and its subsidiary, Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC), announced that a jury in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California (San Francisco) issued a verdict against Toshiba in the amount of $87 million due to alleged antitrust practices in the LCD business. It's just one of many companies found guilty over the past few years, and Toshiba is making clear that it expects to not pay for any of it.... Read more...
Apple's Retina display is impressive, no doubt, but there's a new contender in the mix as of this week. LG Display has come out of nowhere and introduced a five-inch Full HD LCD panel for smartphones. That's right: a 1080p display, meant for phones. The company's Optimus Vu has shown that it isn't afraid to produce a "phablet," and it looks like LG is now in a position to offer up a Galaxy Note competitor with an insanely dense display. It's obviously the highest resolution smartphone panel to date, offering the same pixel count as your 65-inch HDTV. It's based on AH-IPS (Advanced High Performance... Read more...
Touched an iPad lately? What about a car navigation system? What about a Windows Phone? To be honest, most modern touchscreens are fairly responsive. It's not often that a high-quality device with a touch panel these days suffers from notable lag. Some of the old resistive panels could use some gusto, but the iPhone for example seems adequately fast. But it's not fast enough, says Microsoft. The company's research labs are working on a new touch screen system that cuts lag to just one millisecond, well below the threshold of human recognition. If this technology could be ported to touch panel devices,... Read more...
Well, someone has to be the 1%, right? And for those, there's this insanely amazing television -- one that we hope will become affordable in time, thanks to some "trickle down" effect we heard about once. Bang & Olufsen is a name closely linked with luxury goods, and their consumer electronics are certainly deluxe. The company has just announced the arrival of their ultra flat 3D 65-inch plasma solution (with integrated center channel and 7.1 surround sound) this week, with it showing up in showrooms across U.S., Canada and Mexico. BeoVision 12 was previewed at the 2012 Consumer Electronics... Read more...
Say hello to the TV you'll go to bed dreaming about. This is more than just a platter of pixels; this is what technology lust is made of. LG has just announced plans to formally unveil the largest 3D Ultra Definition TV at CES 2012. It's an 84" beast that truly breaks new ground, boasting 8 million pixels, four times the resolution clarity (3840x2160) of existing Full HD TV panels. Combined with LG's Slim and Narrow Bezel Design, the 3D UD TV provides the most convincing 3D viewing experience currently available outside of a movie theater. What's more, 3D Depth Control allows users to customize... Read more...
Are bezel wars the next great war in HDTVs? First it was flat-screen. Then it was the race to HD. Then it was 3D. Now... bezel size? Truth be told, bezel size has been important to both companies and discerning consumers alike for some time now, and LG Display is hoping to capitalize on the demand with a new 55" panel. It's said to have the planet's narrowest bezel for a public display, with just a 5.3mm gap between individual panels when displayed alongside each other. In other words, picking up four of these would create perhaps the most intense, amazing Halo 3 experience ever in your home cinema.... Read more...
If you're after Acer's new Aspire "Predator" gaming desktop, you may also find yourself in the market for a new LCD monitor to go with it. If that's the case, the company has just the thing: the new S1 line of ultra-thin monitors. These resemble the Touch of Color LCDs that we have seen from Samsung in the past, with a slim black bezel, a glossy finish and a design that's so thin, it could easily be mounted on the wall. The S1 series LED monitors are available in a range of sizes, but the overall design remains the same throughout. 20", 21.5" and 23" models are on sale, with the 20" being just... Read more...
In need of a new monitor? Samsung has you covered. The company has just announced an expansion in the Touch of Color line with the 30 and 50 Series LED-backlit LCD monitors, though right now there are just two main models being revealed in those lines. The BX2350 and BX2335 are both refined and revamped compared to last year's ToC displays, offering even sleeker lines and chrome accents. Also, these new panels are environmentally friendly, with the LED-backlit design cutting down on toxic chemicals and using around 40% less energy than conventional LCDs. Furthermore, the company's ToC technology... Read more...
Samsung was busy this week pushing out a great many new notebooks, but that's not all the company has on tap. Today, they're also introducing their 50 Series LED-backlit monitors, with panels ranging from 20" to 24", the Touch of Color design scheme and a great variety when it comes to features. Samsung’s 50 Series LED backlit monitors are available in four sizes – the 20 inch, BX2050, 21.5 inch BX2250, 23 inch BX2350 and 24 inch BX2450. Each one offers a >95% sRGB color gamut and 170 degree horizontal viewing angle, and Samsung also includes their "Magic Angle" technology which... Read more...
You know what the world needs? More multi-touch. Don't think we're being sarcastic, because we most certainly are not. Multi-touch has changed the way we interact with our computers and gadgets, and it's clear that touch is the input method of the future, at least with portable electronics. Companies are becoming better and better at really nailing the execution for multi-touch devices, and GestureTek is one of those hoping to make some moves in the market as the bandwagon grows. The company is following AUO by showcasing a number of new display devices at a forthcoming trade show, but rather than... Read more...
