Demand for TFT-LCDs will continue to be strong in the next couple of years despite recent figures pointing to an unexpected demand decline in the tablet sector. LCD manufacturers such as Microtips Technology, LLC will therefore continue to produce the latest units of TFT LCDs, mainly for the booming smartphone and automotive markets. Data from the Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute (MIC) show that volume shipments of small to medium TFT-LCD display panels will breach the 3 billion unit-mark in 2015 and 2016, increasing by about 0.1% and 0.3% YoY, respectively. Many applications of this size of LCD panels have reportedly reached their “point of saturation,” accounting for the meager growth percentage. One of these applications is the tablet computer, which is expecting lower demand in coming years.

Many LCD module manufacturer firms note that 15% to 25% of the total cost of each LCD come from backlight units and inverters. This is the reason why manufacturers now aim to increase panel transmissivity, as doing so would dramatically reduce the need for backlight lamps, inverters, and optical films, and consequently reduce the total panel costs. Aside from the reduced cost for each unit, increased transmissivity could also improve power efficiency. Conventional LCDs lose the majority of the illumination produced by backlight lamps due to polarizer absorption, causing only around 5% of total light transmitted to make it to the screen. Industry observers say that even small improvements in transmission can lead to significantly reduced dependence on backlight lamps. Just by increasing transmission by 5%, an LCD manufacturer like Microtips Technology can reduce backlight by 50% and still achieve the same results.

Sometimes, professionals or business owners who need a raft of information to stay on top of the game must have a way to see everything organized on one screen. Other circumstances, however, warrant spreading the data out across several screens and have interactive functions. Mike Gordon of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser has an example that has long been grounded in reality – the multi-function displays at the main office set of reimagined police series Hawaii Five-0. Documentaries about large operations centers with numerous displays and even movies filmed in an actual command center have sated public curiosity on how various bits of information come together in a hectic yet more organized environment. Even a simple workstation with at least two displays supposedly helps improve a person’s productivity. If your business has a need for more customized LCD module solutions to better analyze and act on information that comes in, companies like MicroTips USA are willing to help you.

Microtips Technology, LLC, an LCD display module manufacturer and supplier, is offering various products in time for Display Week 2015. Graphic LCD display modules, monochrome LCD display modules, and OLED display modules are some of the company’s specialties. The 2015 Display Week will feature some of the most cutting-edge developments as well as emerging trends in display technology. It will be held from May 31 to June 5, 2015 at the San Jose Convention Center. Microtips Technology’s monochrome LCD and Graphic LCD displays are available in STN, FTSN, YG LED, and White LED, all with Touch Screen capability. These display modules can be used in different applications like medical appliances, industrial facilities, car interiors and consumer products. On the other hand, the company’s OLED display module products are more efficient than those that use CRT technology and traditional LCD modules.

LCD (liquid crystal display) is a display module composed of tiny crystals capable of being maneuvered for data presentation in the form of graphics, letters, or numbers. Color LCD’s have two matrices to produce hues: the passive matrix and the active matrix or TFT (thin film transistors). The latter has become highly sought-after in recent times. A recent report stated that advancing demands on smartphone functionality have given rise to the need for changes on TFT LCD’s screen sizes and pixel densities, while taking power consumption into consideration. These demands have led TFT LCD display manufacturers to create appropriate products with the desired features. Among the various display technologies, TFT LCDs are known to be the most responsive to the need for higher resolutions that consume less power, hence their rapid rise in the market.
