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.

749.358 mm (millimeters)
74.9358 cm (centimeters)
29.5023 in (inches)
2.4585 ft (feet)

29.1276 cm (centimeters)
11.4676 in (inches)
0.9556 ft (feet)
Radius of curvature

There are curved displays, whose curve is part of a circumference (arc). In order to give more precise information about the curve of the screen, often the manufacturer provides data about the radius of this circumference. The smaller the radius, the larger the screen curve.

1500 mm (millimeters)
150 cm (centimeters)
59.0551 in (inches)
4.9213 ft (feet)
Panel type

There are various panel technologies. Each has its own specific features - viewing angles, color reproduction, response time, brightness/contrast, production cost, etc. The image quality depends directly on the type of the display panel used.

VA
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.

10 bits (8 bits + FRC)
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.

Yes
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.

1073741824 colors
30 bits
Aspect ratio

Resolution

Information about the number of pixels on the horizontal and vertical side of the screen. A higher resolution allows the display of a more detailed and of higher quality image.

Pixel pitch

The pixel pitch shows the distance from the centers of two neighboring pixels. In displays, which have a native resolution (the TFT ones, for example), the pixel pitch depends on the resolution and the size of the screen.

0.27 mm (millimeters)
0.027 cm (centimeters)
0.0106 in (inches)
0.0009 ft (feet)

94 ppi (pixels per inch)
37 ppcm (pixels per centimeter)
Backlight

The backlight is the source of light of the LCD display panels. The type of backlight determines the image quality and the color space of the display. There are various backlights such as CCFL, LED, WLED, RGB-LED, and etc.

W-LED
sRGB

sRGB is a color space, developed jointly by Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft in 1996. It is used in different devices such as printers, displays, TV sets, cameras, etc. The sRGB color space covers about 72% of the NTSC color space.

127.39 % (percent)
DCI P3

DCI P3 is a color space, introduced in 2007 by the SMPTE. It is used in digital cinema and has a much wider gamut than the sRGB.
