A closer look at Samsung's Window Display

We saw a prototype of Samsung's windows display at CeBIT, Germany last year and earlier this year at CES 2012. We've got some more details of the display straight from Samsung Korea.

The 46in display has a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels with a refresh rate of 60Hz with a 72 per cent gamut coverage and is only 9mm thick (on the side), with the active layer measuring only 2mm. Another panel with a WSXGA+ resolution (1,680 x 1,050 pixels) is also available for OEMs.

At 4.5Kg, it is lighter than we'd expect and the concept TV comes with HDMI and USB ports (DC 12V). Samsung says that the panel consumes less than 10 per cent of an average conventional LCD panel that uses a backlit unit.

A 22-inch transparent LCD panel is also available commercially with market research firm Display Bank expecting the market to grow from $900 million in 2015 to $87 billion by 2025. Check the pictures below as well as the video of the unit that we shot last year at CeBIT 2011.
