Samsung announces that they have developed a 3″ VGA screen which can be used in digital cameras. Digital camera makers use an interface known as ITU-R601, an international standard for cathode ray tube (CRT) TVs that operates at 30Hz. This standard is incompatible with LCDs, which normally run at 60Hz. Manufacturers have had to reconcile the difference either by compressing the images or by manipulating the signal. However, such approaches will only work with LCDs having a resolution of qVGA(320 x 240 pixels) or less. Samsungâ€™s new LCD operates on 30Hz, allowing VGA images to be obtained from a digital camera without having to create another interface.
