display: A type of liquid crystal display (LCD) that has a transistor for each pixel - used in the Mac Portable and many high-end PowerBook models, including the 170, 180C, 270C, 280C, and 540 and 540C. These displays have a higher contrast and wider viewing angle than passive-matrix screens (even "superfast" or "dual-scan" models), but they're more expensive and more difficult to manufacture.
A type of flat-panel display in which the screen is refreshed more frequently than in conventional passive-matrix displays. The most common type of active-matrix display is based on a technology known as TFT (thin film transistor). The two terms, active matrix and TFT, are often used interchangeably
A display where each pixel is driven by a thin film transistor (TFT) deposited in the glass.
Used in reference to both LCDs and OLEDs, refers to the ability to control each individual pixel with an dedicated drive switching TFT, as opposed to passive matrix
A form of LCD display common in projectors and laptops, sometimes known as thin-film transistor.
also often referred to as TFT, Active Matrix is an LCD technology which uses separate transistors for each pixel, allowing for greater contrast ratio, faster response time, richer color, and no ghosting. The drawbacks of Active Matrix are higher power consumption and greater cost. Generally, when transistors in a TFT display fail, only a single screen pixel is affected; not an entire line of pixels.
a video display consisting of a matrix with a transistor at each pixel location to store individually the state of the pixel- either on or off. Pixels in active-matrix panels are turned on or off by addressing them. An example is the thin-film-transistor, liquid-crystal display.
Catalyst matrix with catalytic activity. See Matrix.
Describes LCD displays that have micro-transistors which open and close each pixel.
Term used to describe LCD Displays, which have micro-transistors that "open" and "close" each pixel.
Thin Film Transistor (TFT) is the technology used in active matrix screens of notebook computers. Active matrix displays are the closest things to the monitor displays used with desktop computers. They have excellent color resolution and can display motion accurately and rapidly. As such, they excel in high-level gaphic situations where imaging integrity is crucial. In contrast, passive matrix displays are designed for business functions such as word processing, budgeting and basic graphing.
Referred to as Thin-Film-Transistor (TFT). This technology acts faster at speeds 10 times faster than normal monitors.
LCD panels that are active matrix have a sharper, brighter image than those with passive matrix screens. They can also continue to be seen at much greater angles off of central viewing and cost more to produce. The "active" part of the word describes the use of a transistor or diode that actively controls each pixel. Most Active Matrix Screens use TFT (Thin Film Transistor) technology.
refers to the technology of TFT. See TFT. Active Matrix as opposed to Passive Matrix. See Passive vs. Active
A liquid crystal display structure in which switching transistors or diodes are attached to each pixel to control the on/off voltage. It produces a brighter and sharper display with a broader viewing angle than a passive matrix display. Also known as AMLCD (active matrix liquid crystal display). See TFT (thin film transistor).
An advanced LCD technology. Active matrix displays use transistors to directly activate the screen's diodes, which creates brighter, more vibrant colors.
A technology that is used in liquid crystal displays (LCDs) to create sharper images that animate more smoothly for easier viewing.
An LCD structure in which each pixel is independently controlled Page Top
is an LCD design that has a transistor in each subpixel. Often called a thin film transistor (TFT), a type of LCD flat-panel display screen, in which each pixel is controlled by one to four transistors.
Computers and projectors have differing abilities to "refresh" the images produced. Active Matrix technology refreshes the images so rapidly that a crisp, uniform image, free from "ghosting" is possible. This is especially noticeable in cursor movements and video images.
Type of display which amplifies the video signal at every intersection in the grid of electrodes to improve quality.
a type of flat-panel liquid crystal display (LCD) that delivers better clarity and contrast than the passive-matrix display.
LCD panels that are active matrix have a sharper, brighter image than those with passive matrix screens. They can also continue to be seen at much greater angles off of central viewing. In the early days of the LCD active matrix panels cost more to produce. The "active" part of the word describes the use of a transistor or diode that actively controls each pixel.
