NEC to ship more sunlight-friendly LCD panels Have you ever been at an ATM machine, ticket machine, vending machine or something similar outside, and have struggled to see its display due to high ambient light? NEC LCD Technologies' proprietary super-transmissive natural light TFT (ST-NLT) technology is aimed at making display problems like this a thing of the past. The technology is also expected to improve laptop computer displays in the near-future.
On March 8th, NEC announced that it will begin successive shipment of four new amorphous silicon thin-film-transistor (TFT) LCD samples by the end of April 2007. The new products comprise of a 15.0-inch (38cm-diagonal) extended graphics array (XGA) TFT LCD module, a 12.1-inch (31cm-diagonal) extended graphics array (XGA) TFT LCD module, and two 10.4-inch (26cm-diagonal) video graphics array (VGA) TFT LCD modules.

The displays features ST-NLT to achieve display of vivid colors in environments with high ambient light. They also support wide operating temperature ranges of either -10 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius or -20 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius. These new and enhanced features make the new models ideal for installation in automated teller machines, automated ticket machines, automatic vending machines, and point-of-sales systems for gas stations.

"The addition of these four new sophisticated models will boost NEC LCD Technologies' competitive edge in a market of ever-increasing and diversified needs," said Masaaki Hiroshima, Product Planning Department Manager at NEC LCD Technologies. "Our unmatched product lineup is now 9-models strong, ranging in size from 5.5 to 15.0 inches in six different sizes with QVGA and XGA resolutions, enabling us to provide a premium range of products to an even broader range of customers worldwide."
