NEC 21.3-Inch LCD Modules for Medical Use
NEC LCD Technologies, Japan today introduced two new 21.3-inch amorphous-silicon color thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display modules for medical applications such as the display of radiograms for the interpretation and diagnosis of illness. The NEC NL160120AC27-20 is an ultra extended graphics array (UXGA) resolution TFT LCD module with brightness of 950 cd/m2, and the NEC NL204153AC21-09 is a quad extended graphics array (QXGA) resolution TFT LCD module with brightness of 800 cd/m2. Both of the new color products achieve industry-leading luminance in each resolution category by NEC LCD Technologies’ proprietary ultra-advanced, super-fine TFT (UA-SFT) technology and a new high-intensity, direct back-light system. Ideal for medical image diagnosis, the new modules also realize high picture performance with ultra-wide viewing angles, a high contrast ratio and high brightness uniformity.
A review in panel design, including adoption of UA-SFT technology, has improved the LCD panel’s ability to prevent the leakage of light leading to enhanced black display. As a result, the NL160120AC27-20 and the NL204153AC21-09 realize high contrasts of 800:1 and 750:1 respectively. Availability of samples is scheduled for the end of November 2007.
