LG shows first consumer 3D LCD with 1080p support
LG Display on Thursday introduced the first LCD panel that combines both 3D capabilities and 1080p resolution. The 23-inch LM230WF4 monitor will ship with shutter glasses and promises to bring with it ultra-sharp images. Other specs include a 400cd/m2 brightness, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and a 3ms response time.
This is achieved thanks to LG's use of its high-performance 3D controller and copper bus line that both improve on the resolution and picture quality. The display can also be switched to show traditional 2D images.
The Korea Communications Commission plans to begin offering a trial service of 3D terrestrial broadcasting starting in the second half of 2010. Similar trials are also scheduled for Japan and the UK.
Despite the announcement, LG has not indicated when the LM230WF4 will be out for sale or what it will cost.
