LG.Philips LCD will debut the world’s highest resolution 14.3-inch flexible color e-paper at the CES 2008.
The 14.3-inch E-paper display, which is equivalent in size to an A4 sheet of paper has a resolution of 1,280x800px and can display 16.7m colors. These e-paper displays are extremely energy efficient, only using power when the image changes. Additionally, the displays are extremely thin, at less than 300 micrometers.
LG.Philips LCD’s use of metal foil and plastic substrates, rather than glass substrate makes the flexible color E-paper display bendable and durable, while maintaining superior display qualities. Like its predecessors, this 14.3-inch display uses a substrate that arranges thin-film transistors (TFT) on metal foil rather than glass, allowing it to recover its original shape after being bent. Furthermore, it can also be viewed from a full 180 degrees, so that images always appear crisp, even when the display is bent.
This new display uses LG.Philips LCD’s proprietary processing technology to minimize panel deformation and prevent circuit structure change during high-temperature processes-focusing on the designs of the color filter structure and TFT, as well as color filter lamination technology. This allows the display to overcome processing difficulties inherent in the lack of heat resistance in metal foil and plastic substrates.
LG.Philips LCD will also unveil the highest resolution mono flexible E-paper which is similar in size to a B5 size paper and it plans to launch this mono flexible E-paper in 2008.
CES 2008 will start on January 7th, but the new product announcements are already pouring in.
