Following Samsung’s announcement about high resolution LCD panel for tablets, LG also announced that they will showcase a full line-up of Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching (AH-IPS) LCD panels at SID (Society for Information Display) 2011 on May 15th in Los Angeles.
AH-IPS technology, an advanced form of IPS, has realizes 1.5 to 2 times the resolution of typical LCD panels. The technology also improves display’s color accuracy, which in turn leads to reproduce the original color precisely without color distortion. In addition, it provides greater light transmission, which translates into lower power consumption while delivering exceptional picture quality, making it ideal for use in outdoor settings.
“Consumers can enjoy crisp and clean pictures in any device like smartphones and smartbooks with LG Display’s proprietary AH-IPS technology,” said President and CEO of LG Display Mr. Young Soo Kwon. “Our goal is to be the world’s No. 1 display maker that consistently delivers groundbreaking technologies like IPS to innovate the display industry.”
LG Display will introduce a full line-up of products that employ IPS technology to deliver ultra high resolution, including 3.5- and 4.5-inch panels for smartphones, 7- and 9.7-inch panels for smartbooks, and 55- and 84- inch panels for TVs at the exhibition. LG didn’t provide pixels-per-inch (PPI) information for all the AH-IPS display sizes, except for 3.5-inch AH-IPS display that will have 960x640 pixel resolution at 326 PPI like iPhone’s Retina display. However, LG claimed that all AH-IPS panels would get ultra high-resolution technology for sharper image reproduction.
It will be interesting to see if LG’s 9.7-inch AH-IPS display will be able to match Samsung 10-inch PenTile display when it comes to pixel density. We will find out soon at SID 2011.
