Toshiba develops 61inch 498ppi LCD capable of 2560 x 1600

first_imgToshiba Mobile Display has already impressed us this week by unveiling a 4.3-inch display that has a higher pixel density than the iPhone 4’s Retina Display. But little did we know the company had another, even more impressive display ready to show off a day later.The screen you see above is a 6.1-inch LCD Toshiba hopes will make its way into tablet devices. That’s an unusual size for tablets, which are typically 7 or 10-inches. However, some manufacturers may want to consider using it due to the resolution and image quality the LCD panel can achieve.Toshiba has managed to squeeze 498 pixels per square inch (ppi) into this panel. It can display images at a resolution much higher than 1080p, more specifically it tops out at 2,560 x 1,600. Imagine how good your photographs would look on this thing. Add to that viewing angles of 176 degrees both horizontally and vertically, a contrast ratio of 1000:1, as well as a 61% NTSC color gamut allowing for 16.7 million colors.(Click to view full size)Photographs seem to be what Toshiba is gearing this towards, stating the output is “photographic quality” and adds both “depth and realism” to any image. Depending on the price, it should make for a very nice digital photo frame, but also holds promise as part of a smaller tablet that promotes high resolution image viewing and very crisp text output for e-reading.Now that Toshiba has managed to create such a high resolution display, it doesn’t seem out of the question to expect a 7- and 10-inch version to appear before long.Read more at Toshiba Mobile Displaylast_img
