Samsung has announced the launch of super-resolution screen panels specifically 11K resolution, according to the company they will also implement 3D effects on the increasingly popular virtual reality glasses, provide a high quality picture on large TVs, and also for the cinema screens too.
Samsung is working on 11K Super-Resolution Panels
To give readers an idea, on a screen of 27 inches with a resolution 5K (5120 x 2880 pixels) entails having 218 pixels per inch (218 ppi), whereas if Samsung achieved the resolution 11K this translates to 2250 pixels per inch (2250 ppi). Obviously, these panels are not intended or Smartphones or tablets, mostly because there is no hardware in the world that could run these pixels smoothly.
Samsung is collaborating on this with other industries and the South Korean government is investing $26.5 million spread out over a 5-year period.
Executive Director Chu Hye Yong of Samsung Display’s Base Technology Department said: “We are hoping that we are able to show such technologies at Pyeongchang Olympics if there is a progress in developing technologies. Although some might think that 11K as ‘over specification’ that consumers do not need, this can work as a basis for Korean display industry take another leap if related materials and parts improve through this.”
