Display

Information about the main characteristics of the display - panel, backlight, resolution, refresh rate, etc.

Size class

Size class of the display as declared by the manufacturer. Often this is the rounded value of the actual size of the diagonal in inches.

42.5 in (inches)
Diagonal

Approximate diagonal size of the display. If the manufacturer does not provide such information, the diagonal is calculated from the width and height of the screen.

1080 mm (millimeters)
108 cm (centimeters)
42.5197 in (inches)
3.5433 ft (feet)
Width

Approximate width of the display. If the manufacturer does not provide such information, the width is calculated from the diagonal and the aspect ratio.

529.482 mm (millimeters)
52.9482 cm (centimeters)
20.8458 in (inches)
1.7371 ft (feet)
Panel bit depth

The most widely used panels are those with 6, 8, and 10 bits for each of the RGB components of the pixel. They provide 18-, 24-, and 30-bit color, respectively.

8 bits
FRC

Frame Rate Control (FRC) is a method, which allows the pixels to show more color tones. With quick cyclic switching between different color tones, an illusion for a new intermediate color tone is created. For example, by using FRC, a 6-bit display panel is able to show 16.7 millioin colors, which are typical for 8-bit display panels, and not the standard 262200 colors, instead. There are different FRC algorithms.

No
Colors

The maximum number of colors, which the display is able to reproduce, depends on the type of the panel in use and color enhancing technologies like FRC.

16777216 colors
24 bits
Aspect ratio
