  • LG Electronics Makes Test Version 50-in. PDP for HDTV
  • September 29, 1998 (TOKYO) -- LG Electronics Inc. said it succeeded in making a prototype of a 50-in. plasma display panel (PDP) for high-definition television (HDTV).
    Its resolution is 1,360 x 768 pixels, and the aspect ratio is 16:9. A special driver IC is used for receiving both HDTV and existing NTSC broadcasts.

    The company said that it is planning to construct a production system for the PDP. It hopes to make about 1.2 million units a year by 2005, and to secure a market share of 12 percent of the global PDP market.

    LG Electronics is exhibiting the test PDP at the Asia Display '98 international conference on displays held in Seoul from Sept. 28.
