Epson intros LTPS LCD
Epson Imaging Devices on Tuesday announced it has developed a high-resolution low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) TFT LCD for use in its next-generation P-6000 and P-7000 photo viewers. The new 4-inch, 640x480 VGA display combines a wide viewing angle of 80 degrees from horizontal and vertical and covers 94 percent of the Adobe RGB color range, achieved thanks to what Epson calls its Photo Fine Premia technology.
Epson says the new 200ppi LCD technology will expand and be used in its cellphones, digital cameras and automotive head units and LCDs, and it is considering selling it to other companies as well.
The new LCD technology will be first available on the P-6000 and P-7000 photo viewers that are due for a release at the start of September, priced at $600 and $800, respectively. [via Tech-On]
