Japan - NEC LCD Technologies ( http://www.nec.co.jp/ ), together with its sales and marketing channels in the Americas and Europe, NEC Electronics America Inc., and NEC Electronics (Europe) GmbH, announced that it will begin shipping samples of its new low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) module, part number NL9654HL06-01J, at the end of July 2008. The new LCD module boasts an exceptionally high pixel density of 413 pixels per inch in a small-size direct view LCD.
The new module supports quarter high-definition (QHD) resolution of 960 540 pixels, which is compatible with full high-definition (HD) resolution, has a compact size of 2.7 inches (6.8 centimeters diagonal), and achieves both a wide color gamut of 70 percent (NTSC ratio) and high luminance of 300 candelas per square meter (cd/m2).
When incorporated in the viewfinder of a video camcorder for professional broadcast use, the new module enables highly accurate adjustment of focus. In addition, the module can be used to check colors through the viewfinder, without the need for external monitors.
The main characteristics of the module include high pixel density, high-definition image reproduction and wide color gamut.
