GDS Files Patent for its Groundbreaking Optically Enhanced Large TFT Display
Global Display Solutions (GDS), market leader in the design and manufacture of industrial displays, has filed a patent application for its first-to-market Optically Enhanced Large TFT Display. This innovative display is readable in full sunlight, has extremely high resolution and is designed to operate 24 hours a day. The display is ideal for use in outdoor applications such as railway stations, airports, bus stations and other passenger information display functions.
The European patent request was registered on May 11th 2005 and is entitled improved display device for indoor and outdoor applications. The patent application is based on certain aspects of the displays design, such as the panel and monitor cooling system, the mechanical chassis system, the optical improvement system and other related concepts.
GDS's innovative new display uses optimal contrast values, which can overcome all previous temperature and reliability limitations experienced by outdoor displays. GDS has used its extensive experience in developing monitors for ATM machines to design this unique display. The display utilizes similar technology to the ATM monitors, but on a much larger scale.
The casing of the display has been made to IP65 standard, which guarantees total protection from dust and low pressure water from all directions. The quality of the graphics on the display is extremely high, operating at 1366x768 resolutions.
