Ortus Technology Co Ltd developed a 9.6-inch 3,840 x 2,160-pixel LCD panel with a resolution as high as 458ppi.

The company claims that it is the world's smallest LCD panel capable of displaying 4k2k video. The panel is targeted at video equipment, medical equipment and commercial equipment such as monitors for broadcasting.

The view angle of the panel is 160° in both the vertical and horizontal directions. It has a 72% color gamut on NTSC standards. The sample of the panel will be available in November 2012.

Ortus Technology realized the resolution of 458ppi by using microfabrication, liquid crystal alignment and panel driving technologies based on the HAST (hyper amorphous silicon TFT), which was developed by the company. As a result, it became possible to display 2D video that is natural and looks 3D.

The LCD panel will be exhibited at electronica 2012, which will take place from Nov 13 to 16, 2012, in Munich, Germany.
