Previously we have explained what the AU Optronics and LG Phillips model numbers mean. This time, we will explain the naming system behind CHIMEI Optronics LCD model numbers.

From Wikipedia:

“Chi Mei Corporation is part of a privately held holding company called the Chi Mei Group, which has numerous subsidiaries. The new Chimei Innolux Corporation is the world’s No. 2 and Taiwan’s No. 1 largest maker of TFT-LCD panels.”

The common structure for the LCD model numbers is that they start with a 1-4 character code, which corresponds with the manufacturer (LTN for Samsung, LP for LG Phillips), etc.)

There are two types of model numbers: the old and new style.
