Sony has 9.9mm thin LCD - but Philips beats it with 8mm LCD

Posted on Friday, August 29 2008 @ 14:38:38 CEST by

The race is on for the thinnest LCD display. Sony just announced the KDL-40ZX1 LCD display which is only 9.9mm thick. This 40" LCD TV offers 1080p, 120Hz MotionFlow, BRAVIA Engine 2 image processing, 3000:1 contrast ratio and a LED backlight.
Only one HDMI in is directly on the screen itself, all unnecessary HDMI / USB / component inputs are relegated to a base station, with the option for wired or -- possibly WHDI based? -- 5Ghz wireless (unfortunately limited to 1080i max resolution for now). We'd mention the XMB GUI, AcTVila video on-demand and DLNA support, but at some point it's just piling on.
It will be available on November 10 in Japan for 490,000 yen, which is around $4,474 these days.

If you think the Sony TV is still too fat you'll be glad to hear that Philips presented an even thinner LCD TV, their new 32" LCD TV with LED backlighting is only 8mm thick!
Two thin strips of Philips' own LumiLEDs -- 30 on top and 30 on the bottom -- are the secret sauce to this thin, Full HD mixture. According to Philips' "Senior Scientist," Dr. Giovanni Cennini, this 8-mm design will scale to panel sizes of 42-inches and probably higher.

Impressive panels.
