Samsung XL20: computer display with LED backlight

Samsung XL20 Display

Samsung has quietly unveiled a new computer LCD which marks a first in color accuracy. The SyncMaster XL20 is the first desktop screen to incorporate an LED backlight. The more natural color tone and much more even illumination greatly increases the overall color gamut to a level useful for artists and photographers, Samsung says. Over 114% of the NTSC television standard's range is reproducible, and the Adobe RGB color palette is properly supported; this allows even the more difficult emerald green and dark purple hues captured by many DSLR cameras to be shown faithfully, according to the company's claims. Appropriately, the XL20 ships with a hood to shelter the image from nearby lighting and has inputs for both DVI-I (backwards-compatible with VGA input) and DVI-D (pure digital) video sources. A USB hub is also built-in. No pricing or availability has been announced.
