NEC Electronics America Announces New 15-Inch XGA LCD for High-End Industrial Use
Ultra-Advanced, Super-Fine TFT Technology Supports Enhanced Medical Imaging, Motion Picture Editing and Broadcasting Applications
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 14 -- NEC Electronics America, Inc., a leading supplier of innovative liquid crystal display (LCD) solutions for industrial applications, today announced a new 15-inch XGA (extended graphics array), thin-film transistor (TFT) color LCD module for high-end industrial applications, including medical diagnostic imaging equipment, motion picture editing and broadcasting systems. These applications require small- to medium-size monitors with high picture quality and high brightness. To address these performance requirements, the 15-inch LCD module provides high brightness capabilities and a wide color gamut featuring NEC LCD Technologies' ultra-wide viewing and UA-SFT (ultra-advanced, super-fine TFT) technologies.
"Our new 15-inch TFT LCD module boasts picture performance equivalent to that of our 8.4-inch TFT LCD, and we are confident that it can meet the various demands of the medical diagnostic imaging, motion picture editing and broadcasting system fields while adding to our extensive line of superior quality products," said Shigehiko Satoh, Ph.D., associate vice president and general manager, display strategic business unit, NEC Electronics America.
The 15-inch XGA color TFT LCD module, part number NL10276BC30-17, was developed as a result of high customer interest in an enhanced version of the company's 8.4-inch XGA LCD module, introduced in July 2003. The 8.4-inch LCD module, part number NL10276BC16-01, was the first product equipped with UA-SFT technology. Originally developed to address a strong demand for high picture quality and high brightness in small- to medium-size monitors for the broadcasting and motion picture editing markets, this module also addresses the high picture quality requirements for medical equipment such as endoscope and ultrasound monitors.
The NL10276BC30-17 module provides high luminance of 300cd/m2 and a wide color gamut of 72 percent of NTSC, equivalent to that of a CRT. These are realized through the company's unique UA-SFT technology, which boasts improved panel transmissivity -- 80 percent from A-SFT (advanced, super-fine TFT) technology and 20 percent from SA-SFT (super-advanced, super-fine TFT) technology -- resulting in accurate color reproduction of clear and vivid color images, even in bright environments. The UA-SFT technology also enables an ultra-wide viewing angle of 170 degrees (contrast ratio greater than 10:1) and reduces the color and/or contrast shift problem that occurs due to a change in viewing angle. By allowing greater flexibility in terms of installation location and viewing position, the new 15-inch LCD is also suitable for multi-screen use. In addition, the NL10276BC30-17 module can realize a simultaneous display of 16.77 million colors, the highest number in this category, by supporting low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) 8-bit signal input. This enables a natural and smooth display of colorful images such as photographs or computer graphics.

Sample shipments of the NL10276BC30-17 are expected begin in February 2005.
