World's highest resolution LCD TV panel

Chi Mei Optoelectronics (CMO) claimed it has developed a 56-inch LCD TV panel that has the world’s highest resolution and expects to volume produce the panel in the third quarter of next year.

The quad full high definition (QFHD) panel has a 3,840×2,160 resolution, featuring 8.29 million pixels, which is four times the resolution of current high-definition (HDTV) panels (1,920×1,080).

The new panel consists of over 24.8 million transistors, with a data transmission speed of over 1.4 gigabytes per second. The 56-inch TV panel is the largest panel developed by a Taiwan-based TFT LCD maker, the company said. CMO will showcase the panel at FPD International 2005 in Yokohama, Japan from October 19-21, 2005.

The panel is produced from CMO’s 5.5-generation (5.5G) plant; a 5.5G substrate can be cut into two 56-inch TV panels.
