Microsoft accords Windows 7 Touch Logo certification for LG Display’s Capacitive In-Cell Multi-Touch LCD panel

February 24, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

LG Display’s new Capacitive In-Cell Multi-Touch LCD panel has been given the go ahead by Microsoft with a Windows 7 Touch Logo certification. The 13.3-inch panel, that comes across a perfect fit for laptops with multi-touch functions that enable simultaneous recognition of two touch points, has in-cell touch sensor embedded in the display. The sensors have been built into the panel.

Expected to be ready for mass production by the second half of the current year, the panel saw the wraps taken off it at the FPD (Flat Panel Display) International Japan 2009. The unveiling of the world’s largest 13.3-inch Capacitive In-Cell Multi-Touch screen panel by LG Display has heralded a new era in the market it operates in.

The panel has been designed in such a way that in-cell touch sensor embedded in the display preserves picture quality and maintains the display’s original thickness. This apart, laptops that are used by the professional on the move can stay protected from extra beating of sunlight and thus prevent light reflection. This, in turn, cuts down on the reduction in brightness.

The Capacitive In-Cell Multi-Touch technology comes targeting large sized LCDs for notebook PCs. Though the technology has been hitherto been limited to the tiny devices such as mobile handsets, the Microsoft certification may be seen as opening newer avenues. Larger products such as notebooks and monitors could soon see sporting the LG innovation.
