LG Philips LED-Lit LCDs

The display-making partnership LG-Philips LCD used its presence at the recent ICDL expo to demonstrate a slew of new LCD panels with LED backlights. As with a similar presentation by Samsung, the line ranges from small displays to larger models intended for TVs, all of which take advantage of LEDs to improve brightness and power efficiency compared to today's lamp-lit screens. Models will start with 7- and 8-inch screens but will also involve 15.4-inch notebook variants as well as 26- and 47-inch HDTV models, the company said. The larger models in particular will have exceptional color fidelity, achieving as much as 136% of the NTSC color gamut with the 26-inch version. An official production date for the range hasn't been revealed but should follow within the next few months.

In a surprise move, an Apple Cinema Display was also on display at LG-Philips' booth during the conference, prompting questions about the presence of the American-branded product. While the display may have been used solely for comparison purposes, its placement at an LED-only conference as a demo unit points towards an eventual update of one or more Apple monitors with the enhanced backlight. A second photo of the LG-Philips screens as well as the Cinema Display follows after the jump. [via AVING]
