L to R: World’s slimmest 42” LED LCD TV by LGD; Sharp’s I wall public information display; 71” 3-D LED TV by AUO I am reporting on the last day of the FPD International/Green Devices 2010 show and several new trends in flat panel displays are repeated around the exhibit hall.Thin is in. The LG Extreme slim LCD TV is an amazingly thin 1/8 inch and weighs under 9 lbs! This is accomplished by edge lit LED with local dimming; full HD 1080p resolution and 120Hz refresh rate provide an amazingly sharp picture with high contrast ratio. The 73 watt power consumption is up to a 40% power savings over CCFL backlighting. The extreme slim design requires a separate box with the tuner and other TV electronics.
Shopping for a new LCD TV? If you think a 50” high definition LCD TV with LED back light is state-of-the-art, think again!
I’m at the 2009 FPD International and Green Device show in Yokohama, Japan and am seeing some amazingly cool products.
