SAMSUNG Electronics Introduces the World’s Largest TFT-LCD Television

Hanover, 13 March, 2003 - 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 - the world's largest TFT-LCD TV.

A flat panel TV of this size was previously possible only with plasma display panel technology. Now, the inherent qualities of TFT-LCD TV present a crisper image, higher resolution and much less power consumption - and a lighter weight. With the introduction of the new 54-inch TFT-LCD TV, Samsung Electronics is clearly demonstrating that it is ready to take the lead in living room big-screen TV.

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. With a 1920 x 1080 resolution and 16:9 screen ratio, it is fully HD ready and can accommodate future changes in broadcasting.

The image on screen is exceptionally bright, crisp and vibrant, with brightness of 500 nits (cd/m²
), a contrast ratio of 800:1 and color temperature of 10,000 K.

Despite its unprecedented 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 two inches thick and weighs just 44 pounds - this makes mounting easier than all other models now available. The TV can also double as a gigantic computer display because of its built-in DVI-I port.

These advanced features and unique 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.
