At the FPD 2011 exhibition Toshiba will be showcasing their latest innovations, including a 6.1-inch LCD panel with a mind-boggling pixel density of 498ppi as well as a new IPS panel variant, dubbed “Soloudina”.<br /><br /><h3>Toshiba develops 6.1" LCD with (498ppi)</h3>Apple seems to have started a pixel race when the introduced the iPhone 4 with “Retina Display”. Since then panel manufacturers have created panels with extremely high pixel density, and now Toshiba has developed an impressive 6.1" LCD panel.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/toshiba498ppi-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/toshiba498ppi-1.jpg" alt="Toshiba’s 6.1-inch 498ppi LCD panel" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Toshiba’s 6.1-inch 498ppi LCD panel</i></p><br />The panel boasts a 2560x1600 pixel resolution (which equals 498ppi). This resolution is only found in the largest 30-inch+ 16:10 format LCD monitors today. To provide some perspective we have compared a 6.1” LCD panel to a 30-inch below.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/6vs30-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/6vs30-1.jpg" alt="6.1” LCD compared to 30” LCD – but with same 2560x1600 pixel resolution" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>6.1” LCD compared to 30” LCD – but with same 2560x1600 pixel resolution</i></p><br />Toshiba promises “photographic image like” picture quality and also mentions a 1000:1 contrast ratio and 176/176 degree viewing angles. The panel reproduces 61 % of the NTSC color gamut and can display 16.7 million colors in 8-bit.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/toshiba498ppi-2l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/toshiba498ppi-2.jpg" alt="Toshiba’s 6.1-inch 498ppi LCD panel" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Toshiba’s 6.1-inch 498ppi LCD panel</i></p><br />The choice to go with a 6.1-inch format seems like an odd one, but Toshiba hopes to appeal to tablet and smartphone makers.<br /><br /><h3>New IPS variant</h3>Samsung recently announced their competitor to LG’s popular IPS LCD panel technology called <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1291980086 target=_Blank><b>PLS</b></a>, and Toshiba follows suit. Under the name “Soloudina” Toshiba hopes to compete in the display arena with an IPS-like panel technology.<br /><br />The technology is very similar to the patented IPS technology but Toshiba is using a different electrode structure, they claim. Toshiba’s panel type should still provide the IPS picture characteristics such as wide viewing angles and natural colors.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/soloudina-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/soloudina-1.jpg" alt="Toshiba’s 4.3 and 7-inch Soloudina LCD panels" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Toshiba’s 4.3 and 7-inch Soloudina LCD panels</i></p><br />Toshiba has developed 4.3 and 7” LCD panels based on Soloudina with 1280x720 (342ppi) and 1280x800 (217ppi) pixel resolutions, respectively. The contrast ratio is marketed as 800:1, viewing angles are 176/176 degrees and the panels display 8-bit colors (16.7 million colors). Even though Toshiba does not mention “Soloudina” for their 498ppi LCD panel it seems to be based on the new LCD panel type, too.<br /><br />Toshiba plans to exhibit all their new inventions at the FPD International 2011 exhibition from Oct 26 to 28 in Yokohama, Japan.<br /><br />- <i>Source: Toshiba, Techon Nikkei</i>
