Liquavista Introduces Next Generation Displays

As display technology moves on http://www.omroepgroesbeek.nl/online-pharmacies from LCDs to LEDs, Liquavista has gone in a totally different direction. Yesterday, the company debuted their brighter, more efficient ColorBright display using electrowetting technology.

The company claims that the displays are functional in dark and generic viagra overnight direct lighting situations, can be viewed at any angle and that they provide “TV-like picture quality” while consuming much less power than traditional LCDs. The technology is currently targeted for use in watches and cell phones, but there are plans for larger video displays as well.

The technology was developed to be compatible with existing LCD manufacturing processes, so its introduction can be quick and at low cost.

Screens are a major battery drainer, but the ColorBright display could significantly add to http://www.guenstige-versicherungen-online.de/price-of-viagra the battery life of your mobile device since it doesn’t rely on a backlight. This could be especially useful to devices such as cell phones, whose displays often unnecessarily drain the wow it's great best price for generic cialis available power resources.

For a description of what electrowetting is and how it can produce a visual display, check out Liquavista’s website.

There are many things that don't dissociate in water... why did they have to choose oil?

Electrowetting ;D means an electric charge controls the surface tension of a water droplet, pushing a dye (in oil) away from a reflective surface, "wetting" it. The properties (contrast, color, reflectivity) are similar to paper. The ink in your newspaper or magazine is made from oil (e.g. soy)-- a natural product.

By TV quality, they mean that it switches very fast, so can be used with fast motion video. Maybe you remember the old LCDs that blurred motion as it slowly changed? Other factors like contrast and density (170 dots/in) make the technology suitable for video displays. (Vs E-paper, that changes slowly.)

The big eco-advantage (other than readability in daylight) is eliminating the power drain and low efficiency of a backlight.
