Samsung ultra-thin LCD

Korea's Samsung has unveiled a new, prototype LCD panel which should be one of the thinnest in the world, the company claims. Premiering at the FPD International expo this week will be a 40-inch screen that is only 0.39 inches thick, approximately the same dimensions as many 10- to 20-inch desktop monitors. The bezel has also been reduced to 0.58 inches instead of a normal 1.2, making the screen more closely resemble a mounted painting instead of a TV. Color reproduction covers 92 percent of the NTSC spectrum, while its brightness is aided by an LED backlight, still keeping power consumption under 90W. No timeframe for a commercial TV has been set out.
