Samsung will provide the panels and will launch its own displays alongside

Samsung Electronics said that it has signed a long-term contract to provide Dell with 27-inch LCD panels, according to DigiTimes’ reading of a Korean publication. Both companies will launch 27-inch panels in 2007, and the panels can also be used as televisions.

 

Samsung’s projected specifications for its upcoming 27-inch panel features a 1920 x 1200 resolution, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 500 cd/m2 and a response time of 8 ms grey-to-grey. See the full specs here.

 

Dell last month introduced a 20.1-inch widescreen LCD for $289. Samsung has also been making strides in other display technologies, as it recently revealed the world’s thinnest mobile LCD screen and just before that a 12mm thick AMOLED display.

1080p HDTV use

I'm new to HDTV so please forgive my ignorance.

Might a display like this support 1:1 pixel mapping, so that full-res 1080p HDTV input would appear in its normal aspect ratio, letterboxed on the screen? Or would it likely be stretched vertically as on some 16:10 displays currently out (so I've heard)?

Any decent display supports 1:1 pixel mapping. And when the display doesn't, normally you can change a setting in the drivers of your video card to force 1:1. Not sure about dvd players etc...

They typically support three modes (The 2407FPW does all 3):

1:1 mapping (A 640x480 signal will sit right in the middle of the screen with black borders all around).

Aspect mode - A 640x480 signal will be stretched as much as possible while keeping the aspect ratio the same. In this case it will be stretched 2.5 times to 1600x1200 with black bars on the left and right.

Fill mode - A 640x480 signal will be stretched as much as possible and won't keep the aspect ratio. In this case it'll always be 1920x1200 with no black bars anywhere.

Depending on what you are viewing, some modes work better than others. Some games look good in fill, while others look better in stretch.

On the 2405FPW using DVI, it's always 1:1. The video card handles the image manipulation. With component cables (I have mine connected to my DVR), I normally have it set to fill.
