Samsung plans to manufacture transparent color and monochrome panels. The first panel is a 22-inch transparent LCD panel with 1680x1050 resolution and 500:1 contrast ratio.

The color panel has 15 % transparency and the monochrome hits 20 %, which is still lower than Samsung’s OLED prototype with 50 % transparency.

The LCD panels are extremely power efficient and consume 90 % less energy compared to normal LCD panels because transparent LCD panels have no backlight unit.

Samsung hopes that customers will use the new panels for advertising and education purposes.

Samsung has showcased transparent LCDs in notebooks and “window-screens” in the past. See in this video.
