NEC LCD Technologies Announces New 2.7-inch LCD Module Boasting an Exceptionally High Pixel Density

TOKYO, SANTA CLARA, Calif., U.S.A., DUESSELDORF, Germany, April 21, 2008 --- NEC LCD Technologies, together with its sales and marketing channels in the Americas and Europe, NEC Electronics America Inc., and NEC Electronics (Europe) GmbH, today 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 ・エ・黴€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.

1.

High pixel density

     NEC LCD Technologies has integrated peripheral circuits, including a gate driver, onto the TFT-LCD module’s glass substrate, thereby reducing peripheral wiring and the number of connections to external circuits. The LCD module 窶塗as a high pixel density of 413 pixels per inch.
   
2.

High-definition image reproduction

     Even at its compact size of 2.7 inches, the new module supports QHD resolution of 960 ・エ・黴€540, which is compatible with full HD resolution of 1920 ・エ・黴€1080 pixels. As a result, the module achieves resolution high enough to be used in a viewfinder of a full HD video camcorder for highly accurate adjustment of focus.
   
3.

Wide color gamut

     The module’s wide color gamut of 70 percent (NTSC ratio) is almost equivalent to the color space specified by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) standard, the de-facto standard in broadcast fields, and enables colors to be checked through a viewfinder equipped with the module.
   

   “In addition to the new 2.7-inch LCD module, NEC LCD Technologies also introduced three new modules:
  1) 4.3-inch (8.9 cm diagonal) color TFT LCD module, part number NL4827HC19-05A, with wide quarter video graphics array (WQVGA) resolution and high luminance of 600 cd/m2
  2) 3.5-inch (8.9 cm diagonal) color TFT LCD module, part number NL4864HL11-02A, with video graphics array (VGA) resolution and high luminance and high transmissivity realized through the combination of NEC LCD Technologies’ unique value-integrated TFT (VIT) technology and super-transmissive natural-light (ST-NLT) technology
  3) 3) 2.7-inch (6.8 cm diagonal) color TFT LCD module, part number NL2432HC17-07B, with quarter video graphics array (QVGA) resolution and high luminance of 500 cd/m2

   All of the new LCD modules will be displayed at Display 2008, April 16-18 at Tokyo Big Sight, Japan, and at Society of Information Display (SID 2008, May 20-22 at Los Angeles Convention Center, USA.
