Orient Display: LCD History

TFT History

As our society progresses into an overwhelmingly technological state, screens seem to pop up almost everywhere. Behind those glass displays, or flat panel displays, lie hundreds of thousands of complex, tiny devices, controlling the pixels that comprise the overall image we see. Those devices are known as Thin Film Transistors, or abbreviated, TFTs. Learn more.

Orient Display: LCD Sizes

How does TFT Display work 

A TFT LCD,  or a thin film transistor liquid crystal display, is one of the fastest growing forms of display technology today. The thin film transistor (TFT) is a type of semiconductor device used in display technology to enhance efficiency, compactness, and cost of the product. Learn more.

Orient Display: LCD Viewing Angle

TFT Wide Viewing Angle Technologies

LCD has a genetic disadvantage compared to other display technologies: Narrow Viewing Angles.  For the last 40 years, scientists and engineers put a lot of effort to improve LCD viewing angles and made great progress. In this section we will introduce O-Film TFT, MVA (Multi-domain Vertical Alignment) TFT, IPS (In Plane Switching)and AFFS (Advanced Fringe Field Switching) TFT. Learn more.
