Prysm to target commercial display market
19 January 2010
Simplified explanation of LPD technology
Following its public launch last week, Prysm has announced its intention to enter the commercial display market with its Laser Phosphor Display technology.
The company cites low power consumption, flexibility of displace shape and long life span, as well as image quality as features that suit it to such applications.
The company has also released a little more detail about the LPD technology itself – LPD uses solid state lasers to excite phosphors on a surface emissive screen. As modulating lasers scan across the surface, the phosphors emit Red, Green and Blue light, creating an image with no motion blur at all, according to Prysm. The display feature an almost 180 degree viewing angle and 240hz refresh rate.
The image gives a (very, very!) simplified explanation of how the technology works. The scanner acts to modulate the laser, which is then passed across the display to excite the RGB components of the pixels.
Prysm are also inviting potential partners to visit their booth at ISE (11.F41) for private viewings of the technology.
