AUO shows 'green' LCD TVs

AU Optronics, Taiwan's largest manufacturer of TFT LCD panels, announced on Wednesday that it will showcase its AUO Green Innovations exhibit at the SID 2008 show which kicks off on May 20. On display will be the company's new generation of panels featuring LED technology, including the an ultra-slim 42-inch LCD that is less than 0.4 inches think and weighs 44 percent less than conventional panels of the same size.

Despite its slimness, the screen achieves a brightness rating of 450 nits, which is just 50 nits short of the company's current 42-inch LCD offerings. The TV also utilizes a 16x8 block of efficient white LEDs to reduce power consumption while allowing for a high dynamic contrast of more than 200,000:1.

Sharing the booth space will be AUO's 46-inch panel, showcasing the company's third generation of its Advanced Managed Video Array (AMVA III) technology for a static contrast ratio of more than 5000:1. This, combined with AUO's RGBW technology which increases brightness by 30 percent while using up less energy, result in a panel that consumes up to 50 percent less power than conventional screens.

As AUO supplies many set makers with its panels, expect to see them offered in North America under different brands in the future.
