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.

27 in (inches)
Diagonal

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.

IPS
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

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.

90 % (percent)
Adobe RGB (1998)

Adobe RGB (1998) is a color space, developed by Adobe Systems in 1998. It has a wider gamut than the sRGB (mainly in the cyan-green range of colors) and is widely used in professional printing.

72 % (percent)
Brightness

Information about the brightness of the screen. It is measured in candela per square metre (cd/m²).

250 cd/m² (candela per square meter)
Static contrast

The static contrast shows the ratio between the brightest and the darkest color, which the display can reproduce simultaneously, for example, within one and the same frame/scene.

1000 : 1
Dynamic contrast

The dynamic contrast shows the ratio between the brightest and the darkest color, which the display can reproduce over time, for example, in the course of playing a video.

80000000 : 1
