Tianma NLT America and Tianma Microelectronics USA Announce New High Resolution, HD Quality LCDS with Wide Viewing Angles
December 18, 2014
Santa Clara, CA — Tianma NLT America (TNAM) and Tianma Microelectronics USA have announced the introduction of new 4.66” and 5.7” 720 x 1280 (720 HD) TFT display modules. The TM046JDHP01 and TM057JDHP04 modules offer HD quality imaging and wider viewing angles. Both modules utilize a-Si TFT display technology with SFT for wide viewing angles.  A proprietary technology developed by NLT Technologies, Ltd., a Tianma Group company, SFT (Super Fine TFT) technology induces liquid crystal molecules to line up evenly and rotate horizontally when electrically charged. The rotation angle of the liquid crystal molecules changes according to the amount of electrical voltage applied and affects the amount of light that is transmitted. The liquid crystal molecules are always positioned horizontally, so they appear the same size from the front. Therefore, even if the viewing angle changes, there is little deviation in brightness or color, providing high quality images.

LG readies 55-inch 8K TV, and new quantum dot 4K display technology
December 16, 2014
This year it was 4K - next year, it's looking like it'll be 8K and quantum dots. At CES 2015 - now less than a month away! - LG says it will show off a 55-inch 8K TV, and a 4K TV that uses quantum dots to improve image quality and color saturation. In both cases, we are talking about IPS LCD panels, rather than OLED technology, which should mean that both the 4K and 8K displays are reasonably priced. The 8K display is also notable because it's small - with a diagonal of 55 inches, this thing not only has an incredibly high resolution for a TV (160 PPI), but it will actually fit in most households, unlike the 85- and 98-inch 8K TVs that we've seen previously.
