CMO 52″ LCD TV Panel in First Quarter 2007

Chi Mei Optoelectronic’s (CMO) 52″ LCD TV will sport a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, a brightness of 500 cd/m2, a contrast ratio of 1500:1, and a 6ms response time. The 52″ monster will be built on CMO’s G5.5 LCD fab that can cut two 52″ panels at a time. A G5.5 is more optimized for larger LCD monitors such as the newly introduced 19″ wide and 22″ wide monitors. With a monthly capacity of its G5.5 plant at 120,000 glass substrate input going up to 180,000 by December, you can bet CMO will be churning out a lot of 52″ LCD TVs to make a lot of profits. If you want to have a look at the 52″ LCD TV from CMO, hop on over to FPD International 2006 that will be held from October 18 – 20 in Yokohama, Japan.

But let’s not get too excited here: We’ve already seen a 100″ LCD prototype (and I really mean prototype) from LG.Philips LCD (LPL) at SID 2006 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco this year. Also, Sharp is already shipping a 65″ LCD TV, which I saw at a Magnolia store in Palo Alto, California. And don’t forget Samsung’s 82″ prototype.
