NEC LCD Technologies has announced a 15.3-inch amorphous-silicon thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) module with wide extended graphics array (WXGA) resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels, part number NL12876BC26-28. The module incorporates NEC LCD Technologies’ ultra-advanced, super-fine TFT (UA-SFT) technology, a proprietary version of in-plane switching technology; a display featuring superior color reproduction; and wide viewing angles that are required for broadcasting and video production display uses as well as other industrial display applications.
Key benefits of NEC LCD Technologies’ new 15.3-inch WXGA module with UA-SFT technology are:
(1) Excellent Image Quality
NEC LCD Technologies has enhanced the module’s transmissivity to achieve 330 cd/m2 luminance, and a 1000:1 contrast ratio that results from reduction in light leakage in the panel, which yields higher intensity in “black color,” and an LCD that achieves a wide color gamut, 72 percent of NTSC ratio, all of which are beneficial for confirming video images in broadcasting and video production.
(2) Ultra-wide Viewing Angle
The company’s UA-SFT technology affords the display an ultra-wide viewing angle of 176 degrees both horizontally and vertically and reduces the color shift that can occur when viewing the display from an off-angle. These features result in greater flexibility in display placement and viewing position, which make the module suitable for multi-screen use.
(3) Wide Format
The new WXGA LCD module has a wide format of 1280 x 768 pixels that is compatible with high-definition television standards.
Production studios, video editing rooms, broadcasting stations and video production companies typically use multiple, medium-size monitors to display images and information from multiple cameras and video tape recorders (VTRs). The monitors may be used to confirm and create images, in addition to switching cameras, throughout the video editing process. The company’s new 15.3-inch LCD module is ideally suited for these professional uses as well as many other industrial display applications.
Introduction of the new 15.3-inch module further expands NEC LCD Technologies’ UA-SFT and wide-format product offerings and reflects the company’s ongoing commitment to develop and manufacture LCD modules that address the unique requirements of industrial display applications. The new display is currently available for sampling and mass production. (Pricing and availability are subject to change without notice.)
