Samsung has today announced that it will begin producing 24" LCD panels that use LED backlighting technology in the second quarter of this year.
The panel boasts a resolution of 1920x1200, which is the industry standard for displays of this size, and will also feature a contrast ratio of more than 1000:1. Samsung claims that this is the highest contrast ratio for LCDs available today.
In addition, Samsung says that the new LED-backlit panel's colour reproduction and quality will resemble that of the highest-quality high-definition TVs available today.
With this in mind, the LED-backlit panel's specifications released by the company
indicate that it will deliver colour saturation levels at 111% of the NTSC standard, while conventional monitors are only capable of 72%.
Finally, Samsung also states that the panel will make use of its S-PVA (Super Patterned-ITO Vertical Alignment) technology, which allows for a full 180-degree viewing angle.
