Samsung Display is showcasing several industry-leading technologies and prototypes at the Society for Information Display’s Display Week 2013. These include a Full HD (1920*1080) mobile AMOLED display with the world's broadest color gamut, an 85” ultra HD (3840*2160) LCD TV panel with extremely vivid color and low power consumption as well as new-generation notebook and tablet displays.


Samsung Display is exhibiting a 10.1” WQXGA (2560*1600) LCD for tablets and a 13.3” WQXGA+ (3200*1800) LCD for notebooks, which each can deliver 30% greater power-savings than that of existing LCD tablet displays, by decreasing the number of driver circuits and increasing the efficiency of the LED BLU. Also, Samsung is spotlighting a 23” multi-touch LCD display that can detect 10 touch points simultaneously. The prototype enables playing of the piano with exceptional finesse, or drawing a highly detailed picture on a monitor or a tablet.

In addition, Samsung Display shows a unique new Diamond Pixel technology being highlighted at the show, and a featured LCD technology that enables local-dimming control in direct LED-based LCD panels.

The company is demonstrating the world's first mass-produced 4.99” Full HD mobile AMOLED display that offers the world’s broadest color gamut with a 94% average rate of reproduction for the Adobe RGB color space. The Adobe RGB standard is about 30% broader than general sRGB standards.

With the new Diamond Pixel technology, Samsung's Full HD AMOLED display can provide text messages 2.2 times clearer than HD (1280*720) displays. So, when curvilinear letters on the panel are magnified two or three times, Samsung’s Diamond Pixel technology enables text to be reproduced more smoothly (fewer “jaggies”) and accurately than those produced with conventional LCD technology.

Samsung Display's exhibit of an 85” ultra HD TV panel showcases an LCD technology that enables local-dimming control in a direct LED-based LCD panel. The panel can save 30% of typical LED BLU power consumption. Its local-dimming control enables vivid color rendering including incredible black images, 80% brightness uniformity, and a remarkably-enhanced contrast ratio.

For the latest in green technology, Samsung Display is highlighting advanced power-saving solutions for smart mobile devices including smartphones and tablets. Here, Samsung Display has innovatively reduced power consumption of AMOLED display by enhancing the luminous efficacy of AMOLED pixels. Samsung Full HD AMOLED displays provide a 25% power-savings over that of existing HD AMOLED displays.
