LG Display unveils 3D LCDs with Full HD Resolution

LG Display Co., Ltd., a leading innovator of thin-film transistor
liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) technology, announced the world’s
first commercial launch of 3D LCD panel boasting full HD resolution. The new product is a 23-inch 3D monitor LCD panel for use
with shutter glasses that delivers full HD resolution. It offers
picture quality that is almost twice as crisp as HD 3D displays
currently available in the market.

The panel adopts the company’s proprietary technologies such as "high
performance 3D exclusive controller" capable of processing more than
twice as much image data as other HD 3D LCDs and "copper bus line" to
improve on the resolution and picture quality. In addition, the panel
is able to reproduce both 2D and 3D images, meaning that users can
switch back and forth from 2D and 3D modes.

Although full HD 3D images have been developed for contents such as
video games, movies and animations, 3D display products with full HD
resolution were unavailable in the market. The commercial launch of LG
Display’s full HD 3D LCD panel is expected to help to boost development
of high resolution 3D contents while allowing users to view
true-to-life 3D images.

Mr. Davis Lee, LG Display’s Vice President and head of IT marketing
department, noted "LG Display has made a major breakthrough in the
display industry race to deliver the depth and dynamic nature of 3D
images. LG Display will continue with efforts to keep pace with the
fast growing 3D market with leading 3D technology and products in order
to create new value for customers."

The 3D display market is expected to grow at rapid pace as the industry
players are shifting their focus from two-dimensional to
three-dimensional technologies. The Korea Communications Commission
recently announced plans to start a trial service for the world’s first
full HD 3D terrestrial broadcasting from the second half of 2010. A
launch of trial services for 3D satellite broadcasts had been also
announced earlier in Japan and the UK.

3D Displays: Based on binocular disparity, the left eye and right eye
sees two slightly different views, allowing the viewer to feel the
sense of depth of 3D images. Glasses used for 3D displays are largely
classified into shutter glasses and polarized glasses. In the case of
shutter glasses type 3D display, the signals sent by the display are
synchronized with the glasses to realize 3D images. A shutter glasses
typed 3D panel is generally known for a wider viewing angle and better
picture quality.
