Epson makes first 4K LCD panel for projectors

Seiko Epson on Monday revealed it has made the world's first high-temperature polysilicon (HTPS) TFT liquid crystal panel for 3LCD projectors that can muster a 4K (4096x2160) resolution. The panel is sized at 1.64 inches diagonally and will allow for smaller home theater projectors as well as ones for big events in auditoriums. In creating the panel, Epson used its C2 Fine technology and a new, original driving method made specifically for the 4K resolution while keeping brightness and contrast high.

The 4K resolution is more than twice as big as that in full HD panels, which is 1920x1080. This allows users to view four programs in full HD on one screen. There is no word on when the panel will be integrated into a commercially available product or what it will cost. [via Tech-On]
