LG Display Nearly Eliminates Bezel On New 55" 1080p HDTV

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.

It's a 1080p screen with 800 nits of brightness, and it uses Local Dimming Technology which is 40% lower power consumption than existing products.

The new 55-inch public display panel will be unveiled publicly for the first time at Flat Panel Display (FPD) International 2011 in Yokohama, Japan from October 26 to 28. LG Display plans to install a 165-inch multi-screen display, consisting of nine display units in a 3x3 format. Public display products are commonly installed in public areas and often used as digital advertisement billboards as well as external and internal wall decoration of buildings. According to DisplaySearch, a market research firm, annual sales of the public display sector is expected to increase from 1.6 million units in 2009 to over 9.5 million units in 2016, a six-fold increase.

It seems that this display will first be marketed outside of the consumer universe, but there's a great chance to see it make the leap over in due time. And no, we can't wait.

LG Display Introduces 55-Inch Public Display Panel with World’s Narrowest Bezel

Seoul, Korea (October 18, 2011) – LG Display [NYSE: LPL, KRX: 034220], a leading innovator of thin-film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) technology, today announced that it has developed a 55-inch panel for public displays equipped with the world’s narrowest bezel.

The new public display panel comes with the narrowest bezel that creates a 5.3 mm gap (left/right: 3.4 mm, top/bottom: 1.9 mm) between individual panels when displayed alongside each other. This makes it possible to create a large 165-inch multi-screen public display capable of producing seamless, life-like images. In addition, the narrow bezel enables a more visible surface area, improving the viewing effect and visual cohesion most critical to a multi-screen display.

The product is accompanied by LG Display’s Full HD panel with 800 nit brightness. In turn, the panel delivers vibrant colors and sharp contrast, while ensuring multi-screen displays that are brighter and clearer compared to previous setups.

LG Display has developed more energy efficient technologies that can bring greater value to the environment issue. The new 55-inch public display panel uses Local Dimming Technology which is 40% lower power consumption than existing products.

“The utility of public display products have been expanding,” said Jun Joon, Vice President of Public Display Department at LG Display. “As a result, public display products have been solidifying their position as a key part of the overall display market, alongside TVs, monitors, and mobile devices. LG Display will leverage on its technological prowess to strengthen its global competitiveness in this booming sector.”
