Samsung has showed off world's biggest LCD display. The LN57F51BD is a 57-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and features an 1000:1 contrast ratio, a 600-candle-per-square meter brightness lever, a maximum 8ms response time and 75 percent color reproduction.

The resolution of this panel is a formula of 1080p full HD so it should give twice the resolution than existing HD displays. The panel itself measures 52-inches by 30-inches and is less than 2 inches thick. It weighs 47 pounds and consumes 350W at maximum brightness.
This is the maximum size panel that can be manufactured, it is governed by the size of the glass sheet that a production line can handle. Fifth-generation lines can accept glass up to 110 centimeters by 130 centimeters (43.3 inches by 51.2 inches), making the 57-inch panel possible, said Samsung.
A new 40-inch LCD TV (LN40M61B) was also presented with world's best picture enhancement circuitry, ultra fast pixel speed and industry leading contrast and brightness.

The 57-inch display retails for approximately $17,200 and the 40-inch one will go for $5,600.
