Samsung Shows of Solar Power LCD

| March 7, 2011 | Reply

Are you bored with your same old LCD TV or monitor that you have had for the past year? Looking to see what the next step in LCD technology? Look no further as Samsung at CeBIT 2011 last week gave a demo of a prototype 46-inch display with 1920 x 1080 resolution and able to act as a ten-finger touchscreen! It is an awesome sight and is said to even include some solar cell technology, that can power the screen from surrounding light sources. It is said to have had some issues while being demoed last week, but no doubt this is the future of LCD technology.


The prototype featured a 46-inch screen that supported full HD resolution video, at 1920×1080 pixels. The screen was also able to act as a full ten finger touchscreen. The company does have plans for commercial models in the works, but they were not too forthcoming with details such as when devices may be available or how much they will cost. This may have something to do with the fact that this technology is still in development. During the demo the touch screen did have some problems.
There are some rumors of Samsung using this technology to develop larger panels than the ones currently in existence. The biggest panels that the company currently releases is a 65-inch model.
