Samung outs transparent LCD panels

Samsung Electronics announced today that it began mass production of the first transparent LCD panels. The first models have 22-inch diagonal and come in black-and-white type and color type panels. They have a resolution of 1680 x 1050 pixels, a  500:1 contrast ratio and utilize ambient light such as sun light, to illuminate them, which also lowers the power consumption by 90% compared with a conventional LCD panel using back light unit.

Samsung’s LCD panels have a transparency rate of over 20% for the black-and-white type and over 15% for the colored variant, which enables a person to look right through the panel like glass. They are equipped with HDMI and USB interfaces and are aimed to be used for advertising purposes.
