CPT to make 18.4-inch widescreen displays

Posted on Tuesday, January 01 2008 @ 00:15:21 CET by

DigiTimes reports CPT will start volume production of the first 18.4" widescreen LCD displays at the end of the second quarter of 2008.
In order to compete against 19-inch widescreen monitors and 17-inch monitors, the company decided to enter the 18.4-inch widescreen segment. The new 16:9 panel features a resolution of 1,366×768, a brightness of 300 nits, contrast ratio of 1,000:1 as well as a response time of 5ms, said CPT.

CPT vice president James Wu noted that prices for 18.4-inch panels will certainly be lower than that of 19-inch widescreen monitor panels. The company expects the price advantage will help the company to gain market share.

The 18.4 widescreen monitor panel will be produced at CPT's sixth-generation (6G) LCD plant with each 6G glass substrate being able to be cut into 24 pieces. CPT now allocates around 70,000 and 20,000 substrates for monitor panels and TV applications, respectively, at its 6G plant. The company will maintain the production ratio through 2008.

CPT will be the first company to release an 18.4-inch widescreen monitor in the industry. Some other players are still assessing the development of the product and are not ruling the possibility to follow suit in the future, according to sources at the panel makers.
