Samsung Unveils World's First "True" Double-Sided LCD

| Posted: Jan 5, 2007 1:44 am

Samsung have broken new ground today as they unveil the world's first LCD which can display independent images on either side of the display. Previously released double-sided LCDs were all inferior in that they could only display a reverse of the original image data on the opposing side. With Samsung's double-gate, TFT design, the LCD features two gates which operate each pixel instead of just one. This is what allows Samsung to produce two independent images.

 

Very impressive stuff. More on it at The Dailytech and Samsung's website.

 


Seoul, Korea - January 4, 2007: Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world's largest provider of thin-film transistor, liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) panels announced today that it has created the first LCD panel that can produce independent images on each side of a mobile LCD display. Samsung's new double-sided LCD can show two entirely different pictures or sets of visual data simultaneously on the front and back of the same screen. Other conventional double-sided LCDs can only show a reverse image of the same video data.

 

This new development will replace two display panels with one, thereby reducing overall thickness of mobile products by at least 1mm.

 

Executive Vice President Yun Jin-hyuk, in charge of the Mobile Display Division of the Samsung Electronics LCD Business, says, "Our new double-sided mobile display underscores Samsung's commitment to equip our customers with advanced display technology that accelerates the trend toward slimmer mobile products. We anticipate high demand when we commence mass production in the first half of 2007."
