SEOUL, Dec 21  09   |  Bernama

-- LG Display Co. announced on Monday that it has developed the world's thinnest LCD panel "Extreme Slim, " that measures only 2.6 mm, China's Xinhua news agency reported, citing a local media as saying.

The breakthrough panel was developed through the application of an ultra-slim, edge-lit light emitting diode (LED) backlight system and propriety optical film technology developed by LG Display, it was announced in a statement.

The new LCD panel weighs less than 4 kg, which makes it a better fit for wall-mounted TVs, and offers full HD resolution delivering crisp and sharp images, LG Display officials said.

"Through the development of the world's thinnest LED LCD TV Panel, LG Display demonstrated its ability to lead customer trend in the high resolution and slim design market," Chung In-jae, LG Display's Chief Technology Officer and Executive Vice President was quoted as saying by local media.

Prior to Monday's announcement, Samsung Electronics held the record for the world's thinnest LCD panel with its "Needle Slim," measuring at 3.9 mm.

LG Display said the new LCD panel will be showcased at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Xinhua said.
