Display device

A display device is an output device for presentation of information in visual[1] or tactile form (the latter used for example in tactile electronic displays for blind people).[2] When the input information that is supplied has an electrical signal, the display is called an electronic display.

Common applications for electronic visual displays are televisions or computer monitors.

History

In the history of display technology, a variety of display devices and technologies have been used.

Design

There are various designs for display devices, using various technologies. Several components are common to most display devices.

Components

  • Display, or screen, the portion of the device that displays changeable image
  • Bezel, the area surrounding portion that displays changing information
  • Housing, the enclosure of the display

Types of electronic displays

In use

These are the technologies used to create the various displays in use today.

Segment displays

Some displays can show only digits or alphanumeric characters. They are called segment displays, because they are composed of several segments that switch on and off to give appearance of desired glyph. The segments are usually single LEDs or liquid crystals. They are mostly used in digital watches and pocket calculators. There are several types:

Underlying technologies of segment displays

Full-area 2-dimensional displays

2-dimensional displays that cover a full area (usually a rectangle) are also called video displays, since it is the main modality of presenting video.

Applications of full-area 2-dimensional displays

Full-area 2-dimensional displays are used in, for example:

Underlying technologies of full-area 2-dimensional displays

Underlying technologies for full-area 2-dimensional displays include:

The multiplexed display technique is used to drive most display devices.
