LG has announced that it has developed the world's thinnest LCD TV panel measuring 2.6mm. The secret is an Edge LED backlight. The new ultra-slim model will be exhibited on CES 2010.

Breaking the 3mm barrier in large LCD TV panels

The development of extremely slim LCD panel was possible for LG by applying an ultra-slim, edge-lit LED backlight system and a new optical film technology.

The 42-inch panel weighs less than 4 kilograms - making it ideal for wall mounted TVs. Moreover, the new product offers 120 Hz and a Full HD (1920 x 1080) panel.

External box and no speakers

LG has also placed most of the TV electronics and the TV tuners in a separate media box making the TV even slimmer.

Also, no speakers are integrated so if you want sound – any sound – you need a loudspeaker system. LG says that it was almost impossible to incorporate a sound system in the very slim TV.

Down from 5.9 mm

In May, LG broke the record by unveiling 42- and 47 inch LCD TV panels measuring just 5.9mm. These TVs were the world's thinnest panels at the time.

Now LG has nearly halved its record in just seven months.

Dr. In Jae Chung, LG Display's CTO and Executive Vice President noted,
- "With the development of the world's thinnest LED LCD TV panel that is only 2.6mm thick, LG Display has once again demonstrated its technical prowess to satisfy customer demand for high resolution and slim design products. We will continue to spur R&D activities in order to provide our customers and the market with the differentiated products that they desire."
