Toshiba Launches High Resolution, Full-Color 20.8-inch LCD on World Market
-- Brings Power of Full-Color Displays to Industrial Applications --
TOKYO, March 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Toshiba Corporation today announced that it will launch a slim, compact, high-resolution, 20.8-inch full-color LCD in the U.S. and European markets in the third quarter of 2001. Expressly designed for highly demanding industrial applications, the 3,200 x 2,400 QUXGA display supports 8-million pixels and offers unrivaled resolution and razor-sharp screen images. The new display unites high-level performance with an industry-leading large display. An unmatched 0.132-millimeter dot pitch supports 192 pixels per inch (PPI) -- and image density as sharp as in high quality printed materials -- while the 20.8-inch screen is large enough to display a full A3-sized sheet of paper. The combination of high resolution and large size will bring a full-color display to industrial applications, where the need to work with large, high-resolution images has previously meant a reliance on black and white display tubes. The new full-color LCD is suited to such demanding tasks as creating maps and engineering drawings, the analysis of aerial and satellite photographs, and viewing complex documents such as, patent applications, all of which demand precise images and large displays. In fact, the image quality of the new display is high enough to reproduce works of art. A further advantage to the new display is its small footprint. The base of the display is only 240 millimeters deep, while the display itself is only 113.5 millimeters deep. Toshiba targets sales of 3,000 units worldwide in the first year of marketing. The new LCD will be displayed at CeBIT 2001, the world's biggest trade fair, in Hannover, Germany, from March 22 through 28.
