Samsung loves to be in the forefront. Its no doubt that they have been the first company to develop many new technologies. Now Samsung Electronics has developed a 3″ VGA screen which will be used with digital cameras.
Digital camera makers use an interface known as ITU-R601, an international standard for cathode ray tube (CRT) TVs that operates at 30Hz. This standard is incompatible with LCDs, which normally run at 60Hz. Manufacturers have had to reconcile the difference either by compressing the images or by manipulating the signal. However, such approaches will only work with LCDs having a resolution of qVGA(320 x 240 pixels) or less. Samsung’s new LCD operates on 30Hz, allowing VGA images to be obtained from a digital camera without having to create another interface.
The display will be shown at IMID 2006 in Korea later this month.
