Tech On: LG.Philips LCD Co Ltd has announced its plan to launch a 42-inch TFT-LCD TV panel which is substantially thinner than conventional panels, in the first quarter of 2008.
This panel is claimed to be 40% thinner and 10% lighter than conventional 42-inch LCD TV panels. Despite its slim profile with only 19.8mm, the panel manages to incorporate 120Hz technology, which eliminates motion blur, and full HD resolution, and is said to be twice as sharp as normal HD resolution.
LG.Philips LCD uses a cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) backlight in this panel, which keeps production costs lower than using a comparable LED backlight. These TVs are also designed to fit into smaller spaces and to be easily mounted on a wall.
