CeBit is held in Hannover, Germany, and Flatpanels was on the spot to cover the huge fair.

Samsung
Samsung’s huge booth was one of our first stops.

I’ll start with their monitors and take a look at their TV’s afterwards.

This is the 931B, 931BF and the 17 inch 731BF.

Samsung introduced the 244T to the marked as one of the first main-stream 24 inch monitors. Here you see the 245T which has different design.

Samsung’s MP series comes with an integrated TV tuner and can be used as a monitor too. Here you see the 732MP and 932MP (17” and 19”).

Samsung also presented the 305T – a 30 inch monitor with a response time of 6 ms (g2g), a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a resolution of 2560x1600. It’s based on Samsung’s own S-PVA panel.

Samsung also showed a 20 inch monitor named 205BW. It’s one of the first HDCP compatible monitors and besides the copy-protection support it’s a widescreen with a 6 ms response time.

The succesor to the 970P is called 971P. 971P has a smart new design with ergonomic functions. It will be available in many different colours.

One of the most interesting news on Samsung’s fair booth was their LED demonstration. Here you see a comparison of a 24 inch LCD based on CCFL and a 24 inch LCD with LEDs. Later we will also look at an 82” LCD-TV that uses LEDs as backlight instead of CCFLs.

And the LED LCD monitor alone. It can cover 105 % of the NTSC spectre (72% for conventional LCD panels) and has a contrast ratio of 1000:1, a 14 bit LUT and a resolution of 1920x1200.

Let’s take a look at the new TVs from Samsung.

The first one I found was the LE-40M73BD (LCD-TV). It has a dynamic contrast of 6000:1 and an integrated DVB-T tuner.

And finally Samsungs 82 inch LCD-TV with a LED backlight. The LCD-TV has a stunning and very clear picture with an impressive amount of detail. It was an incredible presentation that attracted quite a big crowd of interested viewers.

Samsung also has a 40 inch LED based LCD-TV with Smoth Motion Driver that ensured moving pictures to move very smoothly.

Panasonic
Panasonic didn’t have as many squarefeet as Samsung but they did present their new VIERA TVs.

Panasonic presented the VIERA TVs as a range of new TVs.

Panasonic also had a nice surprise with their giant plasma TV. It’s 103 inch TV that is absolutely amazing; so amazing that it made people flock around the huge screen. See the picture below.
