Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., announced volume production of its 24″ LCD with a LED backlight starting Q2’07. The LED light source improves the color gamut typically just 72% NTSC to 111%. Samsung knocks the smaller 22″ size: “… not wide enough to support full-HD.” In fact, 22″ LCD monitors with just 1680 x 1050 pixels can’t support viewing Full HD content. You need at least 1920 x 1080 pixels, which the 24″ have at 1920 x 1200. Why does a LCD monitor need to be Full HD capable? I think there is a monitor and TV convergence happening due to the PC adding more media serving capabilities. The 24″ LED-backlit LCD is based on Samsung’s Super Patterned-ITO Vertical Alignment (S-PVA) technologies that provide 180-degree viewing angles, 250 cd/m2 of brightness, and greater than 1,000:1 contrast ratios. Finally, the 24″ is eco-friendly as LEDs do not use mercury, a harmful substance used in most CCFLs used in backlights.
Just a comment about A4: In most of the world, the standard paper size is A4. Compared to the US standard of Letter, A4 is slightly longer. Of course, anything display that can display A4-sized information will have no problems displaying Letter-sized information.
