Samsung and Its Cutting Edge TV Tech

At the recently concluded CeBit Hannover 2004 IT and Consumer Electronics exhibition, Samsung was the proud brand behind three of the show stealers: the world’s largest LCD TV at 57-inch, the world’s largest PDP (plasma display panel) TV at an amazing 80-inch and a prototype borderless DLP TV. For the company’s insight into the exciting world of flat display markets and technologies, Hardware Zone had the exclusive privilege to interview Samsung's global display division's Executive Vice President, Mr. Shin Man-Yong as well as the division's R&D Vice President, Mr. Yoon Boo Keun. Here is what they had to say:

HWZ: Hello Mr. Shin and Mr. Yoon, can you tell us more about yourself and what you do for Samsung?

Shin: I am the Executive Vice President and General Manager for Samsung’s Visual Display Division and I am responsible for Samsung’s global display unit, including TVs and monitors.

Yoon: I am the Vice President of Samsung’s R&D Team for the Visual Display Division. I manage the operations and technologies being developed for Samsung’s displays.

At CeBit Hannover 2004: Mr. Yoon Boo Keun, Vice President of R&D, Samsung Electronics Visual Display Division and Mr. Shin Man-Yong, Executive Vice President and Managing Director from the same division. In between them is Samsung's 80-inch PDP TV – the world’s largest. It has a 1920 x 1080 resolution, a 1000 cd/m² brightness rating and a 2000:1 contrast ratio.
