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.
|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.
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.
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.
The ratio between the horizontal and the vertical side of the display. Some of the standard and widely used aspect ratios are 4:3, 5:4, 16:9 and 16:10.
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.
|3840 x 2160 pixels|
Ultra HD (UHD) / 4K / 2160p
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.
|0.242 mm (millimeters)|
0.0242 cm (centimeters)
0.0095 in (inches)
0.0008 ft (feet)
Information of the number of pixels in a unit of length. With the decrease of the display size and the increase of its resolution, the pixel density increases.
|105 ppi (pixels per inch)|
41 ppcm (pixels per centimeter)
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.
|98 % (percent)|
Often even a higher peak luminance can be achieved under certain conditions. For example, when a smaller area/APL of the display is used for showing a bright object, when a bright object is displayed for a short time, etc.
|900 cd/m² (candela per square meter)|
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.
|1000000 : 1|
HDR expands the contrast ratio (peak luminance and minimal black levels) and color palette to achieve more details across the whole image - from the darkest parts to the brightest ones, which results in more realistic and life-like image.
|Minimum response time|
Information about the minimum amount of time, in which the pixels change from one color to another. Very often the manufacturer provides the response time for transition from grey-to-grey (G2G).
|0.1 ms (milliseconds)|
0.0001 s (seconds)
Information about the type of coating of the display. There are different types of matte and glossy coatings, each of which has its own advantages and drawbacks.
|Vertical frequency (digital)|
The vertical frequency/refresh rate shows how many times in a second the image on the screen is refreshed.
|48 Hz - 120 Hz (hertz)|
Permissible voltage tolerance in a 110-volt electric system.
|100 V - 120 V (volts)|
Permissible voltage tolerance in a 220-volt electric system.
|220 V - 240 V (volts)|
|Alternating current frequency|
Requirement regarding the alternating current frequency in the electric system.
|50 Hz - 60 Hz (hertz)|
|Electric current (A)|
Requirement regarding the electric current rating in amperes (A) of the electric system.
|4 A (amperes)|
|Power consumption (off)|
Power consumption in off-mode.
|0.3 W (watts)|
|Power consumption (sleep)|
Power consumption in sleep/stand by/suspend mode.
|0.5 W (watts)|
Information about the colors, in which the specific model is offered to the market.
Information about whether there is a possibility for wall mounting according to the VESA Mounting Interface Standard (MIS).
