NEC LCD Technologies to Launch Ultra High Luminance 12.1-Inch TFT Color LCD Module for Industrial Use.
This new 12.1-inch model boasts a high-intensity back-light system and improved efficiency of back-light use due to optimized design, resulting in luminance of 1100cd/m2, the highest luminance level in the class of color LCD modules for industrial use. Accordingly, high brightness can be maintained even when a touch panel is installed. Furthermore, it achieves a wide operating-temperature range of -10 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius. These new enhanced features make this new model ideal for installation in ATMs, vending machines, point-of-sales systems for gas-stations and GPS navigators.
NEC LCD Technologies has long been addressing the challenge of securing high visibility of LCDs for industrial use in environments with high ambient light and has succeeded in overcoming such issues through application of its proprietary ST-NLT technology (suppresses surface reflection of the LCD screen and improves efficiency of back-light use) and SR-NLT technology (based on transflective LCD technology). However, in cases where a touch panel is required there is often a decrease of light-transmittance and surface reflection causing deterioration in LCD screen visibility.
"Our newest 12.1-inch TFT LCD for industrial use achieves exceptionally high brightness of 1100cd/m2, the highest in its class, solving conventional issues of low visibility when LCDs are subject to high ambient light, even when the LCD is equipped with a touch panel," said Masaaki Hiroshima, department manager in charge of product planning and marketing, NEC LCD Technologies, Ltd. "At NEC LCD Technologies we continue to build on our years of technological know-how to achieve products of only the highest quality and innovation."
NEC LCD Technologies will also begin selling another three new amorphous silicon TFT color LCD modules. The new products comprise of a 12.1-inch (31cm-diagonal) super video graphics array (SVGA) TFT color LCD module, part number NL8060BC31-42D, an 8.4-inch (21cm-diagonal) super video graphics array (SVGA) TFT color LCD module, part number NL8060BC21-04 and a 7.0-inch (18cm-diagonal) wide quarter video graphics array (WQVGA) TFT color LCD module, part number NL4823BC37-05. All three new models achieve high brightness of 400cd/m2, a high contrast ratio of 600:1, a wide viewing angle of 160 degrees horizontally and 140 degrees vertically (contrast ratio greater than 10:1), a quick response time of 25ms and a wide operating-temperature range of -20 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius.
All of the new models including NL8060BC31-36 will be displayed at FPD International 2006, which is being held at Pacifico Yokohama, Japan, from October 18 - 20.
NEC LCD Technologies takes into account the special needs of all of its target markets to create products through its own unique technology and know-how that it has cultivated over the years. It will continue to further strengthen its product lineup aiming at exploitation of new fields and markets.
