Japan Display develops WhiteMagic 10-inch high resolution LCD Module with 2D Local Dimming
Japan Display ,announced the development of a 10-inch high resolution (2,880(W) x 1,080(H) pixels) liquid crystal display (LCD) module, which supports the playback of high dynamic range content, by combining a newly-developed side-lit 2-dimensional (2D) local dimming backlight with its WhiteMagic display. Accurate reproduction of high dynamic range content requires high contrast and high peak brightness. WhiteMagic adds a White (W) sub-pixel into a Red/Green/Blue (RGB) LCD panel for enhanced brightness, while a 2D local dimming backlight simultaneously delivers deep black images by controlling the luminosity of each zone with precision, leading to a high-contrast image.
This next-generation technology suite not only mobile applications for streaming HDR content, but also DSC (digital still camera) and automotive applications which require both readability in sunlight and contrast in shade, and many more.
