The term LCD technology refers to a liquid-crystal display. Typically, you will see this with flatscreen TVs or computer monitors. The way an LCD screen works is through liquid crystals rather than emitting light directly. This offers several benefits and makes LCD the choice for many appliances including aircraft cockpit displays and outdoor signage.
One reason that LCD technology has become so popular is due to its weight. Unlike previous CRT displays that are very heavy, an LCD screen is super compact and lightweight. Using an LCD for household appliances allows owners to move these objects with ease. At the same time, LCD screens can be shaped into any size imaginable. It is also useful for larger size screens, such as sports stadium scoreboards, thanks to its adaptability.
LCD technology also features a decreased carbon footprint. This is due to its lower power consumption. Compared to older CRT displays, an LCD screen uses up to 25 percent less power. Those savings are reflected in monthly energy costs for homeowners. Furthermore, for individuals hoping to become more eco-friendly, LCD offers the greatest return on their investment. LCD monitors can also be powered using only a 12 V power supply. This decreases the amount of energy required.
An LCD panel features a razor sharp picture without the bleeding or smearing often seen with less superior screen technologies. Additionally, there is a little flicker, if any, which is due to pixels staying in shape in between refreshes. Thanks to the increased picture quality users can position an LCD screen, such as a tablet or computer screen, farther away to decrease eye strain.
