Epson Announces 3.5-inch a-TFT LCD Featuring Photo Fine Vistarich Neo

Epson Imaging Devices Corporation ("Epson Imaging Devices") today announced the development of a new 3.5-inch amorphous silicon TFT (a-TFT) liquid-crystal display (LCD) for use in mobile devices. This a-TFT LCD makes use of the company's Photo Fine Vistarich Neo wide viewing angle technology, an evolution of its Photo Fine Vistarich technology with improved transmittance and contrast. The high-contrast LCD produces beautiful still and moving images even when viewed from the top, bottom, or sides at angles of up to 80 degrees. The company will begin shipping samples of the new a-TFT LCD in February 2009.

In recent years, small LCDs have made their way into a broad range of applications, not only portable communication terminals but also portable music players and other products. In this market, demand is on the rise for LCDs with wide viewing angles, ensuring sharp contrast and low color shift even when viewed from an angle, and enhanced brightness for improved visibility.

To meet this demand, Epson Imaging Devices has developed its new 3.5-inch HVGA a-TFT LCD. The display uses the Photo Fine Vistarich Neo technology, an evolution of the company's existing wide angle viewing technology, to achieve improved brightness and transmittance and a contrast ratio of 1000:1 when viewed directly.

Epson Imaging Devices continues to improve its Photo Fine Vistarich technology and is moving forward with product development aimed at a broad range of applications, including automotive devices such as car navigation systems and instrument panel displays, and advanced mobile phones and terminals with video display capabilities.

Epson Imaging Devices will continue to develop clear, high-resolution displays that can be used anytime, anywhere and to pioneer new applications for its displays, while creating products for a variety of uses and situations to meet its customers' diverse needs.

Epson Imaging Devices will exhibit this new LCD at the Epson Group booth at FPD International 2008, which will be held from October 29 to 31 at Pacifico Yokohama, Japan.
