Shining bright like a diamond, Samsung shows off new screen tech

Samsung at Display Week
Diamond Pixel technology headlines Display Week 2013

Screens, screens, screens - Samsung has a one track mind so far this week.

Samsung Display announced Monday the company will unveil a pair of new screen technologies during Display Week 2013 at the Vancouver Convention Centre, which runs through May 23.

The Korean manufacturer has chosen the annual Society for Information Display industry event to highlight its latest Diamond Pixel LCD technology on screens big and small.

On the larger end of the spectrum is an 85-inch Ultra HD LCD TV panel with a screen resolution of 3840 x 2160 featuring local-dimming control, which consumes 30 percent less energy than traditional LED displays while retaining vivid color reproduction.

Keeping up with the amped pixel theme, Samsung is also showing off a 10.1-inch WQXGA (2560 x 1600) LCD for tablets and a 13.3-inch LCD for notebooks. The company claims both can deliver 30 percent greater power-savings than existing LCD tablet screens, though we'll believe that when we see it.

Diamond sharp text

For phones, Samsung Display is demonstrating a 4.99-inch, full HD (1920 x 1080) AMOLED display, which the manufacturer claimed has the broadest color gamut to date.

Since the human retina reacts more to the color green over red or blue, Samsung's Diamond Pixel packs more green pixels into a display panel, resulting in a sharper screen that accurately reproduces roughly 94 percent of the Adobe RGB color space.

As a result, Samsung Display said text messages will appear 2.2 times clearer than 1280 x 720 HD displays, holding up against magnification of up to three times with fewer jaggies than conventional LCD screens.
