AUO 65 Inch 120Hz Panel

AU Optronics this morning revealed at Computex that it has developed one of the world's largest and highest-quality LCD screens. Measuring 65 inches across, the unnamed display is only the second anywhere to be production-worthy while also boasting image quality well above standard sets. The full 1080p-capable screen is also capable of a 120Hz refresh rate that makes it ideal for fast-moving scenes. Response times are also exceptionally quick at 4ms between gray pixels and a maximum 8ms for extreme cases, such as motion during particularly dark scenes.

Color accuracy isn't sacrificed for the sake of speed, AUO also notes. The 65-inch LCD achieves a high 92 percent coverage of the NTSC color gamut and is technically capable of 10-bit images per channel: the figure amounts to one billion maximum colors and will let TVs with HDMI 1.3 inputs display deeper color at the larger size. Static contrast is rated at 2,000:1.

Production of the panel is set to take place during summer this year, and should find its way into finished LCD TVs from various electronics firms -- including those that operate in North America -- shortly afterwards.
