Epson intros LTPS LCD

Epson Imaging Devices on Tuesday announced it has developed a high-resolution low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) TFT LCD for use in its next-generation P-6000 and P-7000 photo viewers. The new 4-inch, 640x480 VGA display combines a wide viewing angle of 80 degrees from horizontal and vertical and covers 94 percent of the Adobe RGB color range, achieved thanks to what Epson calls its Photo Fine Premia technology.

Epson says the new 200ppi LCD technology will expand and be used in its cellphones, digital cameras and automotive head units and LCDs, and it is considering selling it to other companies as well.

The new LCD technology will be first available on the P-6000 and P-7000 photo viewers that are due for a release at the start of September, priced at $600 and $800, respectively. [via Tech-On]

    This is a step in the right direction for photo viewers. I'd like to see some larger frames (for walls, etc.) at 200ppi. Maybe I'd buy a smaller format viewer (4x6 or 5x7) if it were reaching around 300 ppi (print resolution).

    Mmm Good

    What I'd like to see is a 30" 200 ppi monitor sold by Apple. Then they could start doing device independent graphics so stuff would look super clear on it. Yeah baby, sign me up for one of those.
