Samsung Unveils 82” LCD TV with LED Backlight
We know that the "who's got the biggest" war continues to go on with TV manufacturers, but here's a twist. Not only is Samsung showing an 82" LCD TV at CEBIT, but this baby has a built-in LED backlight. Now for those of you have ever watched an LCD know that TV watching angles can be an issue, especially in large rooms. Here's a brief clip of the press release:
Hanover, Germany - 9 March 2006 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the leading producer of televisions worldwide, today unveils an 82” LCD TV with LED backlight - the world’s largest of its kind –at CeBIT 2006. This new model offers dramatically improved performance and viewing angle while decreasing thickness and power usage.
The 82” LCD TV with LED enlarges the color reproduction area by more than 33 percent compared to conventional LCD TVs. Dynamic Contrast technology, Samsung’s proprietary contrast enhancement technology, allows for a high contrast ratio of 7000:1. In addition, this 82” LCD TV with LED is a next-generation, environment-friendly product that does not use mercury.
This new model provides TV viewers with a clear view from virtually every viewing angle, solving a long-running problem with LCD screens. At the same time, it is thinner and consumes less power than other comparably-sized LCD TVs with an LED backlight. Moreover, Samsung’s exclusive LCD TV circuit technology eliminates the need for a cooling fan, which can pull dust into the TV and create noise.
No price on this, but if you got a room big enough for this monster, you probably have the
ability to get a second mortgage for this (don't you love when people make assumptions?).
