SAMSUNG Electronics Develops the World’s First 40-inch TFT-LCD TV

The 40-inch TFT-LCD TV is also well-suited for digital broadcasting with its full-colour display function that reproduces 16.7 million colour tones, a black-and-white contrast ratio of 600:1, and a brightness of 500 candelas.

Samsung Electronics has maintained the top share of the world market for TFT-LCD products of 10 inches and larger for the past three years. In addition to the new 40-inch version, the company plans to offer a variety of TFT-LCD TV lines, including 15, 17, 22, and 29 inch models. With its 42” and 52” PDP TV line-up, Samsung Electronics is seriously pushing a full line-up of Flat Panel TV product to the market.

Display Search, an industry analyst, estimates that the world TFT-LCD TV market will total 2.52 million units this year and grow at least 40% a year to reach 9.8 million units by 2005.
