Liquid Crystal Display. A display that consists of two


polarizing transparent panels and a liquid crystal
surface sandwiched in between. Voltage is applied to
certain areas, causing the crystal to turn dark. A light
source behind the panel transmits through transparent
crystals and is mostly blocked by dark crystals.

Abbreviation of liquid crystal display, a type of display
used in digital watches and many portable computers.
LCD displays utilize two sheets of polarizing material
with a liquid crystal solution between them. An electric
current passed through the liquid causes the crystals to
align so that light cannot pass through them. Each
crystal, therefore, is like a shutter, either allowing light
to pass through or blocking the light. ...

A display technology involving optical glass panels
whose opacity can be controlled by electrical signals.
Each pixel acts as a shutter, to modulate light coming
from the lamp that is projected onto the screen. All of
Christies Vivid (excluding Vivid Red) and Roadrunner
projectors use 3-chip LCD technology. LCoS Liquid
Crystal on Silicon. This is a reflective display technology
where one glass substrate is attached to a silicon chip
which is coated with Liquid Crystal. ...

Liquid Cyrstal Display. An electronic component
containing a tiny quantity of liquid that crystallizes
(turns black) when a small electrical current passes
through it, and returns to a liquid state when the
current is switched off.

Refers to liquid crystal display technology, one of the
two most popular technologies behind flat panel
televisions (the other being plasma). Liquid crystal
display technology works by blocking light from a high
intensity source in order to display a picture. Liquid
crystals are sandwiched between two glass plates and
minor temperature variations are introduced to
particular points causing the crystals to change colors
in predetermined patterns.

LCD is a display technology that uses electric current to
align crystals in a special liquid. The rod-shaped
crystals are contained between two parallel transparent
electrodes, and when current is applied, they change
their orientation, creating a darker area.

An LCD is a liquid crystal display. LCDs are most often
used for notebook computer screens and is used in
electronic computer projection equipment. Active and
passive matrix LCD. Active matrix LCDs are more
responsive and therefore appropriate for full motion
video, computer animation, and fast mouse movement.
Active matrix also provides a higher degree of color
saturation.

A type of display used in most PDAs (like Palm,
Windows CE & Pocket PCs), ebook devices (like Rocket
eBook and SoftBook) and notepads. Desktop machines
typically use CRT (cathode-ray tube) screens. LCD
displays work by passing an electric current through
the liquid causing the crystals to align, allowing light to
pass through or to be blocked from getting through. ...

Liquid Crystal Display. This is a form of display that
works by shining polarised light through a panel of
liquid crystals. When a voltage is applied to the
crystals, they twist and block out the light. An array of
transistors and crystals can be used to produce a
moving image. LCDs have definite advantages over
CRT displays - they require less operating power; they
produce far less electromagnetic emissions; the units
are lighter and narrower. ...

An electronic display panel that is based on the
properties of a liquid-crystal material sandwiched
between two transparent plates and illuminated from
behind. The transmittance of the liquid-crystal material
changes with the applied electric field. (Inglis & Luther,
1996)

A display having conductive segments or dots
deposited on the inside surfaces of two transparent
glass plates separated by a crystal in liquid form. When
energized with AC voltage in the presence of light, the
selected segments will provide a black-tone or gray
readout.

A Liquid Crystal Display, or LCD, is a thin, flat display
device made up of any number of color or monochrome
pixels arrayed in front of a light source or reflector. It is
prized by engineers because it uses very small amounts
of electric power, and is therefore suitable for use in
battery-powered electronic devices.
