At SID, LG.Philips LCD will exhibit its 100-inch LCD panel, which is approximately 1.5 times larger than the previously largest LCD panel, and is similar in size to the largest plasma display panel (PDP) currently available.

Developed at LG.Philips LCD's seventh-generation manufacturing facility in Paju, South Korea, the 100-inch panel is a wide screen (16:9) LCD TV panel which has a screen response speed below 5ms, 6.22 million-pixels, Full HD grade picture quality and the ability to reproduce 1.07 billion colors. The panel also boasts the latest technologies, such as a maximum contrast ratio of 3000:1, color gamut of 92 percent, and an omni-directional, 180-degree viewing angle based on Super IPS and super-large compensation film technologies.
Bock Kwon, LG.Philips LCD's Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing & Sales Officer said, "In a short amount of time, there have been significant enhancements to LCDs, giving LCDs an edge over other display technologies, as evidenced by the introduction of the 100-inch panel -- the largest in the world. Our product demonstrations at SID 2006 will further support why LCD is clearly today's display technology of choice."
