100″ liquid crystal display

March 8, 2006

hdnetHere they grow again. LG and Philips have developed a 100” LCD and up to this point the worlds largest LCD was Samsung’s trophy coming in at 82”. One has to wonder how long it will be before LCD’s reach front projection dimensions of 120”.

One things for sure however, when LCD’s do break the 120” barrier, front projection will still be significantly less expensive. While LG gave no estimated price for their 100” monstrosity (as it’s a prototype), rest assured it will be at least three times the cost of a similar resolution, front projection unit.

These mega-displays big Asian manufacturers tease us with from time to time, are reminiscent of the concept cars automakers displayed in the 1950’s. Dreams today, but often reality in the not too distant future.
