LG Releasing Sunlight-Illuminated LCD Display

lg

Next month’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is shaping up to be an interesting event. A few days ago, we reported that Energizer plans on debuting its solar-powered battery charger at the show. Now LG has announced the CES debut of its sunlight-illuminated 14.1 inch LCD notebook panel.

LG’s panel features an adaptive backlight that switches from transmissive to transreflective mode with the click of a button. The panel’s transreflective display— made for outdoor use— reflects sunlight to illuminate itself from the inside.

The company says that its transreflective mode provides a clear view of the screen display (the contrast ratio is 9:1)—and reduces power consumption by up to 75%.

Transreflective panels aren’t new, but LG’s product is the first to provide the option to easily switch back and forth between display modes.
