Covers up to 102 percent of the NTSC color space: Widescreen displays with true-to-life color rendition

(PresseBox) (Stutensee, ) Gleichmann Electronics expands its product portfolio with new 22-, 24- and 26-inch widescreen panels from LG Display. These new panels, designed for industrial use, set new standards in achievable color space.

With LCD technology, the maximum achievable color gamut is limited by the backlighting. The backlight itself thus determines the color temperature and color space available. With a conventional CCFL backlighting typically only approximately 75% of the NTSC color space can be covered.

In order to get round this problem, with the Wide Color Gamut (WCG) technology, used by LG Display, pigmented phosphor is coated on the top surface of the CCFL tubes thus allowing cover of up to 102 percent of the NTSC color space. The result is an exceptionally vibrant and true-to-life color rendition. For example, the 24-inch LM240WU4-SLB1 panel excels with a resolution of 10 bits per color, whereby ultimately 1.07 billion colors can be generated.

In addition to the excellent color rendition, the displays in 16:10 format also impress with their wide vertical and horizontal viewing angles of 178°, an extensive impact resistance and fast reaction times between 5.5 ms and 7 ms.

The 22-inch panel LM220WE4-SLB1 is offered with 1680 x 1050 pixel resolution (WSXGA+), the 24 inch version LM240WU4-SLB1 and the 26-inch model LM260WU2-SLA2 in WUXGA resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels). Further common characteristics of the displays, which are designed for an operating temperature range from 0°C to +50°C, are 400 cd/m² brightness, a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a backlight lifespan of minimum 40,000 hours.

The new displays are based on LG Displays' own AH3/IPS technology. The abbreviation stands for Advanced High Performance and describes the current level of development of In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology. In recent years, with help of this technology among other things the translucence could be increased by 15% and the power consumption significantly reduced. Thanks to the AH3/IPS technology, all types of information can be rendered without any contrast loss and color shift worth mentioning. Color "washout" - noticeable with wider viewing angles -, which occurs with other technologies, is not present. The advantage compared to competitive technologies also increases with higher resolution.

Data sheets of the new displays are now available upon request from Gleichmann Electronics.

MSC Technologies GmbH

Founded in 1979, Gleichmann & Co. Electronics GmbH, in the same company group with MSC Vertriebs GmbH, has established itself as one of the leading pan-European distributors of electronic assemblies and components. One of the reasons for the high acceptance by customers and suppliers is the company's early focus on comparatively few, highly sophisticated products such as microcontrollers, programmable logic devices, displays and customer specific power supplies. From this, the resulting in-depth technical know-how of our sales engineers and field application engineers today enables us, if required by the customer, even implementation of complete new designs right up to the finished product. With two of its own ASIC design centers, the Gleichmann research laboratory in Austria and one of the largest and most modern programming centers in Europe, Gleichmann Electronics takes a leading role in terms of service and customer support.
