NEC Invents New Wiring Tech To Enable Thinner LCD TV's
NEC Electronics has developed a new connection technology that can reduce the thickness of large LCD TV's even further. Normally individual wires carry the clock signal and image data from the image processing board to the drivers that control the pixels you see. The new technology enable both to be transferred over a single wire, reducing the amount of space overall the TV's wiring occupies. For example, a 37-inch 1080p LCD TV normally requires 21 wires, but with NEC's technology can be pared down to only 8, halving the thickness required to house the wires from 2 centimeters to only 1 centimeter.
Besides saving space, the connection technology triples the speed of data transmission allowing for image enhancements without adding more wires. NEC should begin implementing the new technology in large panel LCD TV's in 2009.
