102-inch Plasma HDTV Developed

Samsung SDI develops world largest 102-inch PDP

SEOUL, Dec. 16 (Xinhuanet) — Samsung SDI Co., the world’s famous producer of plasma display panels (PDP), announced Thursday it has successfully developed the world’s largest high density (HD) 102-inch PDP.

“A PDP larger than 100-inch had been regarded as technically impossible, but we have done it, succeeding in both size and brightness,” said Samsung SDI Co. in a news release.

The display is larger than anything on the market including cathode ray tubes (DRT), liquid crystal displays (LCD) and projection displays. Previously, Samsung SDI developed the 80-inch PDP in this January.

The 102-inch full HD PDP has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 offering a brightness level of 1000 candelas per square meter (cd/m2), which in lay terms is equivalent to the amount of light thrown off by 1000 candles burning in a single square meter, according to the release.

The screen also has a contrast ratio of 2000 to 1, meaning it can produce 2000 shades of a color to produce natural verisimilitude.

Samsung will introduce the 102-inch PDP product in January 2005,with production scheduled to start at its factory in Cheonan, South Chungcheong Province, some 80 kilometers south to Seoul, from the first half of next year, the company said.

Large PDPs are most often used for commercial displays in office lobbies, shopping malls and other public buildings, the company said.
