• Custom touchscreen ( such as iPod )
• Among the custom products our engineers have developed are:
- A contrast measuring station for liquid crystal displays.
- A computerized centering station for television projection lenses
Panels / Displays are electronic screens used to view data and / or graphics and are available in a variety of sizes and technologies.
Here are the meanings of abbreviated terms related to display, touchscreen and monitor devices:
LED: Light Emitting Diode
LCD: Liquid Crystal Display
PDP: Plasma Display Panel
VFD: Vacuum Fluorescent Display
OLED: Organic Light Emitting Diode
ELD: Electroluminescent Display
SED: Surface-conduction Electron-emitter Display
HMD: Head Mounted Display
A significant benefit of OLED display over liquid crystal display (LCD) is that OLED does not require a backlight to function. Therefore OLED display draws far less power and, when powered from a battery, can operate longer as compared to LCD. Because there is no need for a backlight, an OLED display can be much thinner than an LCD panel. However, degradation of OLED materials has limited their use as display, touchscreen and monitor.
ELD works by exciting atoms by passing an electric current through them, and causing ELD to emit photons. By varying the material being excited, the colour of the emitted light can be changed. ELD is constructed using flat, opaque electrode strips running parallel to each other, covered by a layer of electroluminescent material, followed by another layer of electrodes, running perpendicular to the bottom layer. The top layer must be transparent in order to let light go through and escape. At each intersection, the material lights, thereby creating a pixel. ELDs are sometimes used as backlights in LCDs. They are also useful for creating soft ambient light, and for low-colour, high-contrast screens.
A surface-conduction electron-emitter display (SED) is a flat panel display technology that uses surface conduction electron emitters for each individual display pixel. The surface conduction emitter emits electrons that excite a phosphor coating on the display panel, similar to cathode ray tube (CRT) televisions. In other words, SEDs use tiny cathode ray tubes behind every single pixel instead of one tube for the whole display, and can combine the slim form factor of LCDs and plasma displays with the superior viewing angles, contrast, black levels, color definition and pixel response time of CRTs. It is also widely claimed that SEDs consume less power than LCD displays.
A head-mounted display or Helmet mounted display, both abbreviated 'HMD', is a display device, worn on the head or as part of a helmet, that has a small display optic in front of one or each eye. A typical HMD has either one or two small displays with lenses and semi-transparent mirrors embedded in a helmet, eye-glasses or visor. The display units are small and may include CRT, LCDs, Liquid Crystal on Silicon, or OLED. Sometimes multiple micro-displays are deployed to increase total resolution and field of view. HMDs differ in whether they can display just a computer generated image (CGI), show live images from the real world or a combination of both. Most HMDs display only a computer-generated image, sometimes referred to as a virtual image. Some HMDs allow superimposing a CGI upon a real-world view. This is sometimes referred to as augmented reality or mixed reality. Combining real-world view with CGI can be done by projecting the CGI through a partially reflective mirror and viewing the real world directly. For partially reflective mirrors, check our page on Passive Optical Components. This method is often called Optical See-Through. Combining real-world view with CGI can also be done electronically by accepting video from a camera and mixing it electronically with CGI. This method is often called Video See-Through. Major HMD applications include military, governmental (fire, police, etc.) and civilian/commercial (medicine, video gaming, sports, etc.). Military, police and firefighters use HMDs to display tactical information such as maps or thermal imaging data while viewing the real scene. HMDs are integrated into the cockpits of modern helicopters and fighter aircraft. They are fully integrated with the pilot's flying helmet and may include protective visors, night vision devices and displays of other symbols and information. Engineers and scientists use HMDs to provide stereoscopic views of CAD (Computer Aided Design) schematics. These systems are also used in the maintenance of complex systems, as they can give a technician an effectively ''x-ray vision'' by combining computer graphics such as system diagrams and imagery with the technician's natural vision. There are also applications in surgery, wherein a combination of radiographic data (CAT scans and MRI imaging) is combined with the surgeon's natural view of the operation. Examples of lower cost HMD devices can be seen with 3D games and entertainment applications. Such systems allow 'virtual' opponents to peek from real windows as a player moves about.
Other interesting developments in display, touchscreen and monitor technologies AGS-TECH is interested are:
Laser illumination technology remained too costly to be used in commercially viable consumer products and too poor in performance to replace lamps except in some rare ultra-high-end projectors. More recently however, companies demonstrated their laser illumination source for projection displays and a prototype rear-projection ''laser TV''. The first commercial Laser TV and subsequently others have been unveiled. First audiences who were shown reference clips from popular movies reported that they were blown away by a Laser TV's hitherto unseen color-display prowess. Some people even describe it as being too intense to the point of seeming artificial.
Some other future display technologies will likely include carbon nanotubes and nanocrystal displays using quantum dots to make vibrant and flexible screens.
As always, if you provide us details of your requirement and application, we can design and custom manufacture displays, touchscreens and monitors for you.
