The ongoing trend for slim products in home audio-visual products continues with LG.Philips' recent announcement of its ultra-thin LCD panel at the FPD International 2007 event held in Japan. The companies claim that the new panel is 40 percent thinner and 10 percent lighter than conventional designs from their competitors, though other companies are working on similarly slim displays as well.

Measuring just 19.8 millimeters thick, the 42-inch screen packs more than 2 million pixels with a native 1,920x1,080 resolution and picture motion enhanced by a 120Hz video-scanning technology, according to DigiTimes. And in an apparent attempt to hold down costs, the panels feature standard cold cathode fluorescent lamps instead of LEDs, which are generally more expensive.
