<div class="billede"><img src="pictures/mini-retina.jpg" alt="Toshiba 367ppi"></div>Manufacturers compete for highest resolution

19 May 2011 | Rasmus Larsen |

A few days ago Samsung unveiled a <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1305279731 target=_blank><b>10.1-inch LCD panel with 2560x1600</b></a> pixel resolution. But other manufacturers have also exhibited impressive panels at the SID 2011 exhibition, such as Toshiba’s new 720x1280 pixel 4-inch LCD panel and E Inks new 9.7-inch 2400x1650 pixel ePaper panel.<br /><br /><h3>Toshiba 367 ppi LCD panel beats Retina Display</h3>SID 2011 in Los Angeles is all about display technology and all the big manufacturers are lined up to exhibit their most impressive new panels.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/toshiba367ppi-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/toshiba367ppi-1.jpg" alt="Toshiba’s 367 ppi LCD panel" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i> Toshiba’s 367 ppi LCD panel, Source: Engadget.com</i></p><br />Toshiba has one of the most interesting new LCD panels at the exhibition with their all-new 4-inch LCD panel with 720x1280 resolution – or 367 ppi (pixels per inch). That is actually higher than the current Retina Display in Apple’s iPhone 4 that has a pixel density of 326 ppi. The panel also has 1000:1 contrast ratio.<br /><br />Toshiba plans to mass produce the new panel but they have not announced who the buyer is. However, the panel is clearly aimed at high-end smartphones.<br /><br />Futhermore, Toshiba exhibited a 3.3-inch LCD panel with 480x864 resolution - or 300 ppi.<br /><br /><h3>E Ink’s 9.7-inch ePaper panel</h3>But not only the LCD panel technology sees improvements in resolution. E Ink and Epson has exhibited a new ePaper panel. ePaper is the type of display that you know from Amazon Kindle and other eBook readers. It has a very matte surface and looks very similar to real paper.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/eink2400x1650-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/eink2400x1650-1.jpg" alt="E Ink 2400x1650 pixel ePaper panel" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>E Ink 2400x1650 pixel ePaper panel</i></p><br />The new 9.68-inch ePaper panel has an impressive 2400x1650 pixel resolution (300 ppi), and we would love to see that resolution in future e-Book reader.<br /><br />E Ink has developed the ePaper panel and Epson has taken care of the high-speed controller board that is needed.<br /><br />E Ink has not announced concrete plans to mass produce the new 300 ppi ePaper panel but it is being exhibited at the SID 2011 exhibition in Los Angeles right now.<br /><br /><i>Source: Toshiba, E Ink, <a href=http://www.engadget.com target=_blank>Engadget.com</a></i>
