Samsung Introduces ‘90% More Efficient’ LCD Panel
Although displays typically compete in areas of screen resolution, contrast ratio, and through a variety of ports, Samsung is charging the tech industry by storm. The company will soon be producing a mass marketed transparent LCD panel. Production will start in the month of April with plans to ship out later this year. The 22″ transparent display will be made available in black-and-white as well as color.
They’ll both host a contrast ratio of 500:1 and a WSXGA+ (1680 x 1050) screen resolution. Today’s LCD panels use back light unit technology, called BLU and have a 5% transparency rate. Samsung’s transparency rate will be 4x better for its black-and-white model and 3x more transparent for the color model.
Since the transparency is so high, users will be able to see right through it and it will consume 90% less electricity in comparison to traditional LCD panels (pictured). This is achieved through the transparent panel absorbing ambient lights such as sun light, thus reducing the need for electricity-fueled power. Samsung’s new panel will also contain your much expected HDMI and USB ports, but no other details regarding price have been mentioned yet. We will report back once we find more information.
