Panasonic Corporation (ADR)(OTCMKTS:PCRFY) subsidiary unit Panasonic Liquid Crystal Display Co., Ltd. has advanced a new mechanism of its IPS liquid crystal panel that records a contrast ratio of more than 1,000,000:1. It is 600 times times of conventional liquid crystal panels.

With IPS liquid crystal know-how that showcase wide viewing angles, high reliability and high brightness, the IPS panel has recorded a high contrast ratio of more than 1,000,000:1 by integrating recently advanced light-modulating cells that allow pixel-by-pixel management of backlight intensity. This accomplishes a high-grade and faithful video display.

The highlights

Panasonic Corporation subsidiary reported that the new IPS panel is perfect for application in professional-use HDR monitors for video production studios and broadcasting stations. HDR displays can replicate images that are realistic to what people see, extending from bright light to jet-black darkness. Likewise, the new high-contrast panel is apt for application such as medical monitors that need automotive monitors and faithful video display that need clear visibility without black floating.

Panasonic’s latest IPS Liquid Crystal Panel boasts numerous unique features. It has a high contrast ratio of more than 1,000,000:1, which is 600 times of conventional offerings. The panel is capable of stable functioning at an extreme brightness of 1,000 cd/m2. It can be made utilizing current liquid crystal panel manufacturing mechanism.

The latest high-contrast IPS panel resolves the issues seen in traditional liquid crystal panels. Regardless of their track record in numerous applications from B-to-B to B-to-C fields, traditional liquid crystal panels suffer white washout phenomenon, black floating, in dark places of the display region when the backlight intensity is intensified to raise brightness. When it is lowered to make dark sections clearer, these panels see a decline in sparkle in bright segments.

The suitable applications for this new panel include high-end monitors for video production, broadcasting, automotive, medical and other fields. As per the update, sample shipment is projected to commence in January 2017.
