The Samsung 3-Inch LCD That’s Really For Digital Cameras

Samsung has developed the first three-inch LCD panel with VGA (640 x 480 pixels) resolution that directly meets industry interface standards for digital still cameras. Until now, digital cameras use an interface known as ITU-R601 intended for CRT TVs that operate at 30Hz, incompatible with LCDs which normally run at 60Hz.

Samsung’s new LCD operates on 30Hz, allowing VGA images to be obtained from a digital camera without having to create another interface. This new VGA (640×480 pixels) LCD also features a dot inversion technique “which lowers power consumption while substantially reducing the image flickering that has prevented such an approach in the past,” according to Samsung.
