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.

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