Display Devices:

Display Devices A display device is an output device for presentation of information in visual or in tactile form When the input information is supplied as an electrical signal, the display is called an electronic display

Segment Displays:

Segment Displays Some displays called segment displays can show only digits or alphanumeric characters. They are, because they are composed of several segments that switch on and off to give appearance of desired glyph . The segments are usually single LEDs or liquid crystals . They are mostly used in digital watches and pocket calculators . Seven-segment display : most common, usually digits only Fourteen-segment display Sixteen-segment display HD44780 LCD controller : a widely accepted protocol for LCDs.

2D Displays:

2D Displays 2-dimensional displays that cover a full area (usually a rectangle ) are also called video displays , since it's the main modality of presenting video . Full-area 2-dimensional displays are used in, for example: Television sets Computer monitors Head-mounted display Broadcast reference monitor Medical monitors

2D Display Technologies:

2D Display Technologies Cathode ray tube display (CRT) Electronic paper , E Ink Plasma display panel (PDP) Liquid crystal display (LCD) Light-emitting diode display (LED) Organic light-emitting diode display (OLED) Laser Display (forthcoming)

Stereo Displays:

Stereo Displays Stereo displays Anaglyph 3D Polarized 3D Active Shutter 3D

Anaglyph 3D:

Anaglyph 3D Anaglyph 3D Anaglyph 3D is the name given to the stereoscopic 3D effect achieved by means of encoding each eye's image using filters of different (usually chromatically opposite) colors, typically red and cyan And old technology and usually the 3d quality is not good , and color quality is poor Screen independent, any display can be used

Polarized 3D:

Polarized 3D Polarized 3D A polarized 3D system uses polarization glasses to create the illusion of three-dimensional images by restricting the light that reaches each eye

Active Shutter 3D:

Active Shutter 3D Active Shutter 3D An active shutter 3D system (AKA: alternate frame sequencing , alternate image , AI , alternating field , field sequential or eclipse method ) is a technique of displaying stereoscopic 3D images, works by openly presenting the image intended for the left eye while blocking the right eye's view, then presenting the right-eye image while blocking the left eye, at a speed high enough to not be perceived by human sight, thus allowing the images to be perceived as fused into a single 3D image Active shutter 3D systems generally use liquid crystal shutter glasses

CRT Monitors:

CRT Monitors CRT: Cathode Ray Tube

Plasma Displays:

Plasma Displays Usually used in TVs Utilizes small cells containing electrically charged ionized gases , or what are in essence chambers more commonly known as fluorescent lamps

LCD Monitors:

LCD Monitors LCD: Liquid Crystal Display Passive Matrix Active Matrix TFT LCD


TFT-LCD TFT: Thin Film Transistor TFT LCD Panel Types TN: Twisted Nematic IPS: In-Plane Switching VA: Vertical Alignment


TN TN: Twisted Nematic Most common technology and also the oldest. Short response times High brightness Less power consumption Low cost Color shifts, especially at wider viewing angles No true color (24bit) support. Only 18bit (6bit per channel instead of 8). Therefore unable to display the 16.7 million colors Display interpolated 24bit color using a dithering method that combines adjacent pixels to simulate the desired shade


IPS IPS: In-Plane Switching Wide viewing angle Accurate colors High cost

Backlight A backlight is a form of illumination used in LCDs. As LCDs do not produce light themselves (unlike CRTs), they need illumination ( ambient light or a special light source) to produce a visible image Common Light Sources CCFL: Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp LED: Light Emitting Diode Early TFT-LCD monitors used a CCFL backlit and modern ones usually comes with a LED backlit. Therefore they are called LED monitors. Those LED monitors are LCD monitors (with LED backlight)


Backlight CCFL vs LED http://www.wikivs.com/wiki/CCFL_backlight_vs_LED_backlight http://www.screentekinc.com/backlight-ccfl-led-explained.shtml   CCFL LED Size Thicker and Heavier Thinner and Lighter Cost Cheaper Expensive (slightly), but affordable Power Higher Power consumption & Heat generation Lower Power consumption and Heat generation Brightness Lower brightness Generally higher brightness Lifespan Shorter lifespan Longer lifespan

CRT vs LCD CRT Best Color Quality Faster Response Time (0) True Black Multiple Frequency support Multi Sync, Multi-Resolution Lower Cost Higher Power Consumption Higher Heat generation Higher Radiation Higher Space Higher Weight LCD Not as good as CRT Response time usually >= 5ms Can not display true black Poor multi-frequency support Poor quality in non-native resolutions Higher Cost Lower Power Consumption Lower Heat generation Lower Radiation Lower Space Lower Weight http://bootstrike.com/Articles/LCDvsCRT/ http://compreviews.about.com/od/multimedia/a/CRTvsLCD.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_CRT,_LCD,_Plasma,_and_OLED


OLED OLED: Organic Light-Emitting Diode An OLED is a LED in which the emissive electroluminescent layer is a film of organic compound An OLED display works without a backlight . Thus, it can display deep black levels and can be thinner and lighter than a LCD. In low ambient light conditions such as a dark room an OLED screen can achieve a higher contrast ratio than an LCD AMOLED : Active Matrix OLED A display technology for use in mobile devices and televisions





Power Consumption:

Power Consumption Important CRT displays consume low power when displaying Black/Dark colors LCD displays (both CCFL and LED backlit) consume low power when displaying White/Light colors OLED displays consume low power when displaying Black/Dark colors

Power Consumption:

Power Consumption Generally, displays with a backlight need high power to display black/dark colors. Less power to display white. Backlight is always on and white is the default color. LCD have to block the white light to display other colors, and it takes some extra power. To display black, about 3 % more power needed (a little more ). Displays that do not use a backlight consume least power to display black and full power to display white. In those displays, the difference is significant and it is/was encouraged to use darker backgrounds as possible Some Few New LCD displays use some advanced technologies (such as zone control, changing the backlight brightness accordingly to the colors displayed…) and they may consume little lesser power to display black.

Power Consumption:

Power Consumption Tips Generally , Old CRT s and Future OLED s are better with dark colors. Currently most displays are LCD and therefore the color does not matter much . Even though Lighter colors save some power, other factors such as eye strain etc. favor darker colors. Anyway, it is always better to Reduce the Display Brightness and it ALWAYS saves power, as it does reduce the color of the backlight. Also it is good for eyes. Do not reduce brightness too much and also do not reduce the Contrast. Usually reducing contrast does nothing good. In LCD, Blank or Dark Screensavers are not power savers. But Turn off the display feature is a huge power-saver as it does turn off both Monitor and Graphic Processing (VGA/GPU switched off)
