TOKYO: NEC LCD Technologies has unveiled a new compact high definition LCD, which packs 413 pixels per inch, or quarter HD (QHD) resolution, and allows 1080p images to be viewed on its 2.7-inch screen.

The new module will allow high definition video and still cameras to display up to a 1080p image on their screens, along with 70 per cent of the NTSC colour gamut. NEC claimed the screen, if embedded in a professional broadcast use camera, would allow “highly accurate adjustment of focus”, thanks to its high resolution.

Its colour accuracy (European Broadcasting Union standard) will also remove the need to check colours on an external monitor, NEC claimed.

The company did not comment on the possibility the new display could eventually be used in mobile phones, but its 2.7-inch size would make it ideal for such an application.

In a statement, NEC Electronics America and Europe announced they would begin shipping samples of the module, part number NL9654HL06-01J, at the end of July.
