LG 32-inch OLED TV to hit market in 2012

After already committing to releasing a 15-inch OLED TV potentially as early as December 2009 in Korea, LG have now revealed their plans to have a 32-inch OLED display on the market in 2012.  Suggesting that OLED would provide a new source of revenue, LG Display CEO Kwon Young-soo told press that the company's focus is on larger panels rather than cellphone-sized versions.

This, the executive claimed, is because "the larger the display, the more efficient the OLED technology."  It's certainly given the company's HR department a boost: LG Display have apparently taken on 1,700 new staff in research and development this year.

LG 23-inch 3D LCD is world’s brightest [Video]

LG have unveiled a 23-inch LCD monitor which, the company claims, could pave the way for low-cost 3D computing and entertainment.  The full-HD 1080p panel uses traditional time-sequential split-image technology to offer individual views of each image for each eye, which the brain combines into a 3D whole.  However, by integrating this 3D technology into the panel itself, LG can make the panel brighter and reduce the complexity in the accompanying viewing glasses.
