AU Optronics Working on Affordable Ultra HD Monitors

Display panel maker AU Optronics, which supplies LCD panels to major monitor and TV manufacturers, is reportedly working on bringing Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) panels into the mainstream, and promises "affordable" 27-inch and 32-inch monitors beaming those many pixels by Q1 or Q2, 2014. AU Optronics, or AUO as it's known in the industry, supplies LCD panels to a variety of monitor manufacturers, including ASUS, BenQ, Philips, and even Samsung (which also makes its own high-end panels). Among the two panels AUO is working on, one offers sRGB gamut with Adobe RGB gamut coverage; both will be able to reproduce 10-bit with dithering. Given that these panels will be intended for monitors, there will be two major requirements - at least 60 Hz of refresh rate, and as low response time as possible.

European Commission Fines Samsung, LG, Philips, Others € 1.47 Billion

The European Commission has fined seven international groups of companies a total of € 1,470,515,000 for participating in either one or both of two distinct cartels in the sector of cathode ray tubes ("CRT"). For almost ten years, between 1996 and 2006, these companies fixed prices, shared markets, allocated customers between themselves and restricted their output.

One cartel concerned colour picture tubes used for televisions and the other one colour display tubes used in computer monitors. The cartels operated worldwide. The infringements found by the Commission therefore cover the entire European Economic Area (EEA). Chunghwa, LG Electronics, Philips and Samsung SDI participated in both cartels, while Panasonic, Toshiba, MTPD (currently a Panasonic subsidiary) and Technicolor (formerly Thomson) participated only in the cartel for television tubes. Chunghwa received full immunity from fines under the Commission's 2006 Leniency Notice for the two cartels, as it was the first to reveal their existence to the Commission. Other companies received reductions of their fines for their cooperation in the investigation under the Commission's leniency programme.
