Samsung demos ultra-sharp 2160p TV with 120Hz panel

82-inch Samsung UDTV

Korean electronics giant Samsung is using the 2008 SID symposium in Los Angeles to demonstrate a new LCD TV, formatted to an original resolution standard. While commercial LCD panels are currently limited to HD resolution (up to 1080p, or 1900x1080), the Samsung set is claimed to operate at "ultra-definition," with a maximum resolution of 3840x2160. This is however below the forthcoming 4K standard (4096x1716), and not to be confused with the experimental ultra-high definition resolution (7680x4320).

The TV measures 82 inches, and has a 120Hz refresh rate, something not typically found on such large displays despite being important to smoothing out motion. The set is also equipped with a special LED backlight, raising color saturation to 150 percent.

Also notable at Samsung's SID presentation is a 40-inch LCD with only two source driver ICs, instead of the typical six source and three gate drivers. This should decrease the manufacturing costs of future LCDs, making HDTV more practically affordable.
