Samsung 24 Inch LED Backlit Monitor

SamsungSamsung have developed a 24 inch LCD monitor backlit by LEDs which is claimed to rival the color saturation levels of LCD TVs. Samsung’s proprietary LED backlight ensures that the 24 Inch LED backlit monitor has a color saturation level of 111% (of NTSC standard), which compares to 72% for conventional LCD panels. Good news for the target audience, namely digital photographers and graphic designers. Samsung’s new monitor also has a viewing angle of 180 degrees and support for WUXGA resolution (1,920x1,200 pixels).

Samsung Press Release

Samsung Develops LED-Backlit LCD Panel for Monitors With Color Quality Rivaling Premium TVs

SEOUL, South Korea—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world’s largest provider of thin-film transistor, liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) panels, today announced that, during the second quarter, it will begin producing a 24-inch LCD panel with an LED backlight that enables computer monitors to deliver unprecedented color quality, resembling that of the highest-quality TV sets available today.

With the new 24-inch LCD monitor display, technology-demanding consumers, professional graphics designers and digital photographers will enjoy the same true-to-life colors that premium LCD TVs can provide, thanks to Samsung’s proprietary LED backlight. The LED-backlit monitor panel has an industry-high color saturation level of 111% (of NTSC standard) compared to a saturation level of only 72% of NTSC for conventional monitors and will satisfy consumers used to the crisp colors prevalent in high-definition broadcasting.

The panel’s 24-inch screen size is optimal for systems equipped with the Windows Vista operating system. While conventional thinking has been that Windows Vista works best with a 22-inch screen (the size of two A4 pieces of paper), 22 inches is not wide enough to support full-HD. In addition, industry experts now say that 24 inches provides a better Windows Vista fit to also include the Vista right side bar and margins.

The advent of Windows Vista and the spread of HD technology have accelerated the demand for wide-screen monitors delivering true-color imagery. Meanwhile, a steadily increasing number of consumers are using their monitors to watch high quality video images. Samsung’s new 24-inch LCD display with its vivid colors represents one of the most advanced monitor screens available today to meet market needs.

The new monitor display also features Samsung’s highly successful S-PVA (Super Patterned-ITO Vertical Alignment) technology that provides the widest viewing angle possible – 180 degrees – at the highest contrast ratio for LCD monitors today (>1,000:1). It also supports WUXGA resolution (1,920x1,200 pixels), which is the computer equivalent to Full HD resolution.

The new display’s backlight is environmentally-friendly due to the fact that LED backlights do not utilize mercury, an environmentally harmful substance.

Color Saturation: Standard for measuring how well a display reproduces color purity. Generally, it is expressed as a percentage of the figure provided by the US National Television Standards Committee (NTSC), which has set 72% as the color saturation level for CRT and LCD TVs. However, the clearer images of HDTV must be accompanied by a higher color saturation level than the old NTSC broadcast industry standard.

National Television Standards Committee (NTSC): One of the most common broadcasting standards.

Super Patterned-ITO Vertical Alignment (S-PVA) mode: Patented Samsung technology provides the widest possible viewing angle (180 degrees). To accomplish this, the electrodes inside the panel are calibrated at regular intervals to adjust the alignment direction of its liquid crystal molecules.

  3. What is the model...........

    meh at 07:50am on Wednesday, October 15, 2008

  4. What's this?

    LED technology developed to work with a PC and Vista? You would think that no other company has come up with LED technology before according to this article.

    But for us lot over here....................... Apple users! Apple has been using the LED technology on a 24 inch wide screen for 8 months or more.

    Having said that it is good to see that other companies are taking up Apples lead in this LED technology. Hopefully with Samsung joining we can now see the prices falling?

  9. Can I use a led tv for professional photography?

  10. The LED portion is just for back lighting purposes and really does not enhance the LCD screen images. That said, the LED is fantastic in that manufactures can build screens that are very thin and thus lighter in weight and more appealing asthetically speaking. However, with the introduction of Apple's retina display technology one would wonder when Super High Definition displays will start to come out. Basically displays with 4 to 5 thousand pixels horizontally and around 3 thousand pixels vertically.

  11. The most incredibly ignorant and frustrating article! In the entire article the model number is NEVER mentioned!! Since Samsung has at least 5 that are within an inch of 24 with similar specs the article is of absolutely NO value!
