High Brightness TFT displays.

clock January 22, 2014 11:13 by author norman

Display hardware have evolved dramatically since the first personal computer was sold over 40 years ago. The hardware components that drive computers and their displays have gotten smaller and more powerful. As a result, personal computers have been able to become better and more economic when it comes to space. Computer monitors are no exception to this, and LCD TFT displays represent one of the most advanced pieces of display technology available to a consumer today.

To understand why LCD TFT displays are so amazing, you need to first back up and understand why other monitors aren't.

Flash back about thirty years and you'll find that almost every computer monitor was like televisions at the time. Big, bulky and filled with tubes. They were also very prone to flickering, and they were unsuitable for prolonged periods of use due to the amount of flickering which would result in eye strain.

In short, CRT monitors were ugly, cumbersome and painful in more ways than just one.

About ten years back, different types of display technology began to be implemented. This was the result of reduced costs when it came to the actual manufacturing of displays. This is what enabled LCD monitors to be produced, but they still weren't perfect yet. Often times dead pixels would be a common result of companies cutting manufacturing costs and some LCD technologies would mitigate some of the advantages LCD brought with it due to being too dark for most people to comfortably see.

That's where thin-film-transistor, or TFT, displays come in.

TFT technology allows LCD displays to have markedly better contrast than previous LCD technologies did. This results in less power consumption by LCD TFT displays because there's not as much of a need for the excessively overpowered backlights that previous LCD monitors required.

In recent years where many instruments and other electronic devices have incorporated TFT displays many of which are used outdoors, some in direct sunlight. One solution for improved visibility is the High Brightness TFT display, perfectly viewable in direct sunlight.

LCD TFT displays have more advantages than just a sharper picture that uses less electricity. They offer less eye strain due to the reduced amount of light hitting your eyes and reduced flicker rate. LCD TFT displays also take up a reduced amount of space due to the fact that the technology required to make them run is finer than with a CRT system or previous LCD monitor types.

How LCD TFT Displays Came to Be and Their Advantages

Modern LCD Display Technology

clock September 25, 2012 04:10 by author Admin

 

Computer monitors have become much lighter and smaller in recent years. This is due to the widespread adoption of TFT LCD technology. TFT displays make use of thin film transistors. These transistors control the magnitude of a pixel’s light blocking capabilities. By varying the capacity to block light, a specific shade of color can be reproduced. 

Thin film transistors are arranged in a two dimension matrix. TFT displays are comprised of this transistor matrix and a matrix of LCD pixels. Each transistor in the matrix controls a pixel directly. This is known as an active matrix display. All TFT displays are active matrix displays. Passive matrix displays use an older technology that doesn’t produce as high quality of an image.

TFT displays are valued for their light weight, compactness, and the fact that they do not produce nearly as much eye strain as older style cathode ray tube displays. The lack of eye strain allows computer users to work for longer periods of time, and it reduces the health hazards posed by watching displays continuously. The reason TFT displays cause less eye strain is due to the fact that pixels are not switched off as frequently in an active matrix. In a cathode ray tube television set, every pixel is shut off completely around sixty times per second, creating a rapid flashing. This rapid flashing leads to eye strain when viewed for a prolonged time.

TFT displays also allow for compact computer devices. For example, TFT displays are used in laptops, smart phones, and portable video game consoles. These displays make portable computing a reality. Without thin film transistor and active matrix technology, portable computers would not exist in their current form today. Given that mobile computers have revolutionized the electronics industry, one cannot downplay the importance of TFT technology.

 



Reasons You Should Be Reading This On An LCD Display

clock September 11, 2012 04:06 by author Admin

LCD stands for liquid crystal display, and this type of technology has been used in a wide range of electronic devices for many years, but only recently has it pretty much taken over the usage of cathode ray tube CRT displays. LCD monitors and displays are advantageous to use, especially when compared to CRT monitors because they are cost-efficient, cost-effective, lighter weight, energy efficient, have better screen privacy, and require less eyestrain. 

Cost-Effective

At one time, when LCD displays first hit the shelves of retail stores, the price tags that accompanied them were quite expensive; however, over the years, their prices have dropped dramatically. In fact, LCD monitors and displays have become much more cost-effective to purchase than other types of displays, especially when taking into consideration their longevity.

Lighter Weight

LCD displays are not heavy and bulky like CRT displays. Instead, they are light weight and easy to port around. Even though LCD monitors are not often carried around on a daily basis, when they do require being moved, it is easy to lift and transport them. 

Energy Efficient

When it comes to energy efficiency, LCD displays can play this game right. Generally, these types of displays consume between half to two-thirds less energy than the energy required by CRT monitors. LCD displays that are STAR rated, consume even less energy. In addition, since LCD monitors require less lighting to function properly, this adds up to even higher levels of energy saved in electricity expenses. 

Screen Privacy 

Since LCD displays have a limited viewing angle in which the content on the screen can be properly viewed, this allows for better screen privacy when compared to other types of monitors and displays. 

Less Eyestrain

Since CRT monitors tend to be smaller than LCD displays, this causes them to be more eye-straining. LCD displays allow viewers to easily read and view texts and images. They are also flicker-free, and they offer a uniform amount of screen brightness.
