SAMSUNG Electronics Introduces World's Largest TFT LCD Television

Las Vegas, January 9, 2002 - Continuing its expansion as a leader in the consumer electronics industry, Samsung today unveiled its Thin Film Transistor, Liquid Crystal Display (TFT LCD) 54-inch television, world's largest TFT LCD TV.

Previously, a flat panel TV of this size was possible only with plasma display panel technology, not with TFT LCD which features crisper image, higher resolution, and much less power consumption. With the introduction of the new 54 inch TFT LCD TV, Samsung Electronics shows off that their TFT LCD technology is ready to take the living room big screen TV dominance.

Samsung's new 54 inch TFT LCD TV also excels in performance. Its less than 12ms response time, a crucial indicator of a TFT LCD TV's motion picture capability, ensures a smooth playback of even the most action-packed visual contents. Also, with the 1920 x 1080 resolution and 16:9 screen ratio, it is fully HD ready to accommodate future changes in broadcasting. The image on screen is exceptionally bright, crisp, and vibrant with brightness of 550 nits (cd/m2), contrast ratio of 800:1, and color temperature of 10,000 K.

Despite the unprecedented 54 inch screen size, the 54 inch TFT LCD TV is exceptionally thin and light, even for a flat-panel television. The TFT LCD module is only 2 inches thick and weighs 44 pounds, making mounting installation easier than other models currently available. In addition, the 54 inch TFT LCD TV can also double as a gigantic computer display due to its built-in DVI-I port.

These advanced features and unprecedented screen size, combined with TFT LCD's inherent crisp display characteristics, make 54 inch TFT LCD TV one of the most advanced display products available in the market.
