SAMSUNG Electronics LCD Business President Calls for Next Generation LCD Glass Size Standardization

Boston, MA – May 24, 2005 – Samsung Electronics,
the leader in thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT LCD) technology,
today called for a standardization of LCD glass sizes in a speech by its
LCD Business president, Sang Wan Lee delivered as the opening keynote
at the world’s largest electronic display industry event, the Society
for Information Display (SID) 2005 Symposium and Business Conference.
During the speech titled ”LCD Revolution – The Third Wave,”
Mr. Lee emphasized the need for LCD glass manufacturers to standardize
large-size TV displays globally to 40-inch, 46-inch, 52-inch and 57-inch
sizes. “To save on equipment development and product costs, as well
as to accelerate the time-to-market for advanced large screen LCD TVs,
the entire industry should come together and cooperate toward size standardization.”
Mr. Lee also said the industry can expect glass substrate sizes of 2160×2460mm
and 2400×2800mm, with the coming of 8G and 9G technology, respectively.
Mr. Lee said he believes that the next-generation of LCD glass will eclipse
the current technology in many ways as LCD TVs become the most widely
adopted display technology in the world. “Moving forward, TV products
will move beyond their role as broadcasting reception devices and become
the center of tomorrow’s digital convergence environment, receiving
and providing a wide range of multimedia contents and services.”

“The market is not something to be passively predicted, but actively
created,” asserted Mr. Lee. “In order to develop an annual,
100 million-unit LCD TV market by 2010 and firmly establish the next-generation
TV as an LCD TV to consumers, the LCD panel industry needs to work together
to establish standardized plate and product sizes. The materials, equipment,
OEM and distribution industries should continue with their cost -saving
efforts as well, to establish a mass market.”
Prior to his keynote speech, President Lee received a commemorative
plaque from the president of SID in recognition of his collaborative work
in bringing together the Korean Information Display Society (KIDS) and
