At SID 2008, Samsung unveiled the industry’s first 82-inch LCD TV panel with ultra-definition (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) resolution at a 120Hz refresh rate. It displays ultra-definition (UD) resolution at 120 frames per second, minimising the blurring that is experienced at 60Hz.

A red/green/blue LED backlight has been added to raise true color saturation to 150 percent, based on the NISC standard of 100 per cent.
“This 82-inch LCD is large enough to cover all viewing angles with ultra-definition resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate that will allow viewers to watch motion pictures as if they are really in them,” said executive vice-president of the LCD Technology Centre at Samsung Electronics Sang Soo Kim.

A digital information display (DID) with multi-view has also been launched at SID 2008. The digital information display can produce 3D images without getting help from special glasses. With this digital information display, Samsung is now aiming to open a niche market. Moreover, 40-inch full-HD LCD TV panel has been unveiled. This HD LCD television requires two source driver ICs to be operated, in stead of the typical six source drivers and three gate drivers. For the middle class people, Samsung also launched a 15-inch LCD that sports “blue phase mode,” and 2.3-inch e-paper.

So, you can see that Samsung came up with a number of high tech products in Los Angles. Samsung Electronics Co. is one of the global makers of LCD television and holds a good chunk of market share globally. It seems that Samsung is going for aggressive marketing approach at this moment, even though the U.S. economy is going through a recession period and having an impact on the business companies.
