Also in demand are 100Hz HD LCD TV’s with several vendors in Australia set to roll out new stock to retailers over the next few weeks. Among those with major shortfalls are Sony, Panasonic, LG and Samsung.
In Australia Sony is attempting to grab market share by promoting 200Hz LCD TV’s however the benefits of this technology is only visible during fast action scenes and sporting activities such as motor sport.
The penetration of 100Hz grows as the panel size increases, because of promotion by panel makers and TV vendors, according to DisplaySearch.

New research shows that 100Hz TV production reached 3.3 million units in the fourth quarter 2008, according to DisplaySearch. However, the fourth-quarter 100 and 120Hz panel shipments accounted for 16% of all 32-inch-and-above and 31% of 40-inch-and-above LCD TV panels, up from 15% and 27%, respectively, in the third quarter 2008.

Meanwhile, due to cost reductions and launches of new notebook PC models, shipments of notebook panels with LED backlights grew by 62% on quarter, to 3.7 million in the fourth quarter 2008 from 2.3 million in the third quarter. The share of LED backlights in notebook panels reached 13.4% in the fourth quarter 2008, a big jump from 6.3% in the third quarter, and is expected to reach 24.1% in the first quarter this year.

In the fourth quarter 2008, the highest penetration of 100 and 120Hz appeared in the 52-inch and above segment, where 100Hz share is 62%, followed by 43% in 46- and 47-inch full HD, 32% in 37-inch full HD, 27% in 40-inch full HD, 24% in 42-inch full HD, and 11% in 32-inch full HD panels.
