LCD makers working on 17.3-inch 16:9 panel

Posted on Monday, June 09 2008 @ 00:40:55 CEST by

Industry sources told DigiTimes that LCD panel makers, including AUO and LG Display, are working on 17.3" notebook LCD panels with an aspect ratio of 16:9.
Vendors, such as Acer, Lenovo, Toshiba, and Asustek Computer, are all expected to roll out 17.3-inch notebooks, the sources said, adding Samsung Electronics does not have plans to develop 17.3-inch panels.

With the popularity of the 16:9 aspect ratio growing, and 15.6-inch standing a good chance of becoming a mainstream notebook size, panel makers and notebook vendors are pushing 16:9 specification sizes higher, the sources remarked.

Panel makers developed the 16:10 ratio in the past thinking that notebook users might still want space on their screens for tool bars while watching 16:9 video content. But the panel makers are pushing for the 16:9 ratio, now that they have shifted their notebook application production to 5G lines from 4G ones, with some even starting to move to 6G lines.
