Epson has developed a new high-temperature polysilicon (HTPS) TFT color panel for electronic viewfinders. Measuring just 0.52 of an inch diagonally, the new panel offers QHD (960 x 540) resolution in red, green and blue for a total of 1.56 megapixels. The new Epson high-temperature polysilicon (HTPS) TFT color panel for electronic viewfinders is targeted for use as a widescreen electronic viewfinder in broadcast and industrial camcorders for professionals. Epson’s new panel offers the resolution and fidelity needed to focus the image while providing a number of other benefits such as the ability to recreate smooth gradations and a natural softness.
The use of a color filter prevents the color breakup that tends to occur with other color systems when shooting fast-moving subjects and while panning. The new Epson panel will be on display at the International Broadcast Equipment Exhibition (Inter BEE 2009) to be held at Makuhari Messe, Chiba, Japan, from November 18 to 20.
