LG Philips (News
) has announced that it will unveil a 52-inch multi-touch LCD at next week's Consumer Electronics Show. The screen is 5 inches larger than the one it displayed in Japan and boasts full HD resolution.
The technology has become hugely in demand after it helped iPhone (News
) become a hot commodity in the market.
Manufacturers now want this technology to be included in the screens of their products. The LG Philips 52-inch screen can gauge input from fingers or other instruments with the help of an infrared image sensor. It can also recognize gestures such as the movement of fingers.
LG Philips LCD will also unveil a 47-inch "triple-view" screen that allows three images to be displayed at once with a filter over the front that sends light from pixels in one of three different directions.
Among the three images, one goes to viewers on the right of the screen, one to people in front of it and one to those on the left. The feature is also being positioned at public display applications for use in advertising. Additionally, the company will be showing an 84-inch multi-touch display that is made up of four 42-inch panels joined together.
Apart from the above mentioned products, the company will also display a 47-inch double sided screen at the show. This screen is made up of a single backlight which is sandwiched between two LCD panels. The company will also showcase a 42-inch transreflective panel for outdoor advertising use.
