Samsung announces LED-based 24-inch LCDs

LED-based 24-inch LCDs

Samsung today announced that will begin shipping new LED-based 24-inch LCD panels for computer monitors. The company promises the new LCDs will deliver advanced color quality--similar to that of currently shipping high-quality TV sets. The LED-backlit monitor panel has an industry-high color saturation level of 111% (of NTSC standard) compared to a saturation level of only 72% of NTSC for conventional monitors and will deliver full WUXGA HD-resolution (1,920x1,200 pixels) as well as feature Samsung's S-PVA (Super Patterned-ITO Vertical Alignment) technology that provides the widest viewing angle possible -- 180 degrees along with an industry-leading contrast ratio of more than 1,000:1.

Samsung also said the new LCD displays are more environmentally-friendly than conventional LCDs because they do not utilize mercury, an environmentally harmful substance. The company is expected to begin producing the new LCds during the second quarter. Last week, Samsung introduced the SyncMaster 275T, its first 27-inch computer LCD.
