Why Use Transparent LCD

Transparent displays continue to be on the trend in these present days. You can see interactive smartboards everywhere. It becomes more widely available and affordable each year. There are different types of transparent displays. Each one has its own unique features that are more suitable in certain circumstances. First of all, there are transparent LCD displays and transparent OLED displays. Let’s look at their differences.

Transparent LCD Displays

These displays produce a visible image by having a light on the back of the screen. The pixels on an LCD screen rely on the backlight to provide light instead of emitting it, and then it blocks out the output of the blacklight to display colors. With these features, they are more suitable to use in well-illuminated areas, especially outdoors.

However, they also come with a con. Since they need the backlight to produce images, they lack the ability to create a pure black color. Their brightness can be limited, and the viewing angle can impact the vibrancy of colors and the quality of the picture.

Transparent OLED Displays

These displays do not require backlight illumination, which makes them more potent in darker areas and indoors. Another benefit is their color stays vibrant from all viewing angles. They produce thinner and lighter displays as they don’t need a backlight.

Nevertheless, they also have a con. OLED displays are more sensitive to moisture and discoloration, which is why they are more beneficial to use indoors. They are also more expensive to manufacture.

In addition to self-lighting and visual impact, there are a few more characteristics of the transparent OLED display. Transparent OLED screens are not very common. They are a rare item. Because of this reason, they tend to catch the public’s interest when they are spotted. Unlike LCD screens, OLED screens are entirely see-through, even when they are switched off. When used with a Pro Display Touch Overlay, they can be turned into an interactive transparent OLED screen, offering an ultra-hi-tech that customers can engage and interact with.

On the other hand, transparent LCDs are more common. Places such as malls, supermarkets, theaters, or restaurants are more likely to use the indoor LCD or an LCD panel to display their products. They can also be displayed outdoors. With its lightweight feature, visible transparency that allows viewers to see through the screen, and its option to customize the contents on the screen to display, LCD is a very purposeful tool to market your business.
