Samsung Has Announced a 2560×1600 Display

Samsung has announced a new display that measures 10.1 inches and crams 2560×1600 pixels on to the screen. The display has a DPI of 300 and comes close to the DPI of the Retina display used in the iPhone 4. The new screen will be on display on May 17-19 at the SID Display Week in the LA Convention center.

The technology used on the screen is LCD and with that pixel density of 300 DPI, it allows more clarity in small text which makes reading, browsing and over tablet based activities a little better.

Retina Display Could Arrive on MacBook and iMac

Over the weekend, some artwork was found within the latest Mac OS X Lion build that hints at higher resolution Retina Displays (or at least higher resolution displays) arriving in the coming year. A number of icons were found that broke the regular 512×512 size that are available in current builds. Instead, icons with a resolution of 1024×1024 were found along with a background that has a 3200×3200 resolution. At the moment, no Apple product has a resolution that high.

At the moment there is no need for icons to have a 1024×1024 pixel size which makes us, and others, believe that Apple could increase the pixel density of the iMac and perhaps even the MacBook Pro over the next year. The new sizes are probably a little too early for the rumoured iMac refresh that is just around the corner, but perhaps by this time next year we could be seeing some high density displays on the market.

Samsung 22 Inch Transparent LCD Display Captured on Video

Samsung is beginning to mass-produce a transparent 22 inch LCD panel. Each screen is either black and white, or color and has a contrast ratio of 500:1 with a resolution of 1680×1050 pixels.

“Transparent displays will have a wide range of use in all industry areas as an efficient tool for delivering information and communication. With the world’s first mass production of the transparent LCD panel, Samsung Electronics plans to lead the global transparent LCD market by developing various applications.”

Each of the screens has a transparency of either 20% for the B/W model and 15% for the color model. This is higher than the next competitor which is rated at 5%. [Read more…]

Samsung LCD Strategy Outlined

Over the next few years, we will more than likely be seeing higher pixel density screens according to Samsung. By 2015, the company expects to have screens that have a higher pixel density of about 300 to 400 PPI which will be made available for tablets to use.

The slide show was presented at CTIA and explained that screens would see a density increase, while getting thinner and having better power requirements. Right now, a 24.8Wh battery could last around 6 hours with the next version (200-300PPI) lasting around 8 hours and then in 2015 the 300 to 400 PPI lasting around 10 hours. Each iteration will get thinner than the previous model. [Read more…]

55 Inch Glasses-Free TV 3D LCD TV Goes On Show

Samsung has created a 55 inch 3D TV that requires no glasses to see the effect. The screen is LCD and uses CFL backlighting although LED can be used. Samsung say it’s quite easy to switch between the two at the build stage.

The display uses a couple of LCD screens to make the 3D effect and has 9 viewpoints that are capable of seeing the effect. The optimal viewing distance is 2.5 to 6 meters from what reports are saying. The screens work together in that one is behind the other. The latter of the screens acts as a lens and creates the necessary optical refraction to make 2D to 3D transitions. [Read more…]
