CeBIT: Samsung Introduces 30-inch LED-based Monitor

During the ongoing CeBIT show in Hannover, Samsung Electronics is introducing a 30-inch LCD monitor that incorporates an LED as the backlight source. Featuring a 123% color production, 3000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 2ms response time and viewing angle of 170 degrees, this monitor has the perfect specs. The SyncMaster XL30 will come equipped with "Eyeone Design & Eyeone Photo" and "Natural Color Expert" software. Various input terminals such as USB terminal, DVI-D are available and the 30-inch monitor also features HDCP for viewing high-definition (HD) contents via DVI ports. At the show, Samsung is also launching the 19-inch SyncMaster 940UX LCD monitor we told you about earlier this year, that can be connected using only an USB port.Source: DigiTimes

Pretty awesome. But, with an LED, is it white light or red light they are using?

What kinda stupid question is that? Think before you post.


Edit: But to answer your question, last time I checked (months ago, so maybe they found a new way) they used a red, green and blue LED to create white light. I think Osram calls it "MultiLED".

Edit2: Ok, I got curious so I checked again and found a whitepaper:

Shows the RGP-LED solution and others. (Blue LED + Phosphor layer)


Oh well, not like you post more than once in a newsthread or actually read the news >_>
