CeBIT : THE LCD news Posted on 09/03/2006 at 14:26 by Vincent
Jointly, but with radically different technologies, AU Optronics and Samsung celebrate the end of the "response time". The new P-MVA and S-PVA panels would be, according to the manufacturers, faster than the most recent TN 1 or 2ms and despite a slower official (understand "measure") response time.
They both have a common objective: to have the same reaction time as CRT. If highly sophisticated machines measure very low response time there is still some afterglow effect on TFT monitors. There is a second problem that we very regularly noted during the past five years. It isn't because a monitor is faster than another between greys or from white to black that it will indeed have a faster reaction time in games. After two years, the reign of response time measure between greys is over. G2G Samsung and AU Optronics agreed that it was time for another model. This one doesn't fit anymore. It no longer reflects the reality and is particularly unsuited to their new technologies.
They two have tried to get back to how CRT worked and adapt it to LCD. Samsung went for the image frequency and AU Optronics took it inspiration from CRT scanning not to adjust the monitor afterglow effect but the one generated by our eyes.
Here is a presentation of each of the technologies in the two following news:
