70” Samsung LCD HDTV Unveiling
Samsung unveiled the world’s largest LCD panel, a mere 70”, at the International Meeting on Information Displays (IMID) on August 23, in Daegu, Korea. For now, this gives Samsung the second place seat in largest panel displays to Panasonic’s monstrous 103” TH-103PZ600U plasma display which will be available this holiday season on a Built-to-Order basis costing a cool $70k + tax.
The new Samsung display is not only big, but includes all of the latest and greatest technologies that only Samsung can bring to an LCD panel. It is capable of producing Full HD, or up to 1080p at 120Hz refresh rate giving you just over 8ms refreshes as compared to 17ms on a conventional display running at 60Hz. Additionally, the panel produces these hi-res images at a brilliant 2000:1 contrast ratio. Put this all together and you get today’s clearest scenes, from fast moving action to slow mushy romance. Additionally, the entire room can enjoy this 70” of clarity due to the 180° of viewing angle offered by the display.
The official release date and price of the Samsung 70” displays is not yet released, but don’t expect to see these puppies at your local Best Buy until at least next summer likely carrying a price tag somewhere in the neighborhood of a new Civic.
