The world of video walls has changed dramatically over the years. Now you have better and more powerful display options. The surface-emissive laser-powered phosphor display (LPD) is one such option available nowadays.
It’s a large-format display technology that’s in a way rather comparable to the Cathode Ray Tube (CRT).
Still, it’s an entirely new technology that Prysm, Inc.—the well-known and Silicon Valley, California-based video wall designer and manufacturer—has successfully invented and patented. LPD 6K Displays from the manufacturer has, sort of, completely revolutionized the video wall display landscape in the world, because LPD Display gives amazingly high impact engagement options not available earlier.
If we talk about the technology that’s behind it, well, a fan-shaped array of modulated laser beams rapidly activates red, green, and blue phosphor elements, in a rigid glass or polymer structure even as it may be the lowest-cost and lowest-energy-eating laser display to storm the market so far. Adding further to its value and usefulness is that it has a viewing angle of close-to 180° even as this offers ample opportunities for high-value presentations. What’s more: it consumes electricity equal to a regular luminous light bulb.
Laser Phosphor Display: 7 Key Advantages
As one can see, this display technology comes loaded with many advantages. Here, we are mentioning 7 major such advantages. Take a look!
1. LPD technology works on the phosphor (that produces light to create the images) with a scanning laser beam deflected by a moving mirror. The conventional cathode-ray tube (CRT) on the other hand employs an electron beam deflected by either an electrostatic or magnetic field.
2. The collision of the laser photons with the phosphor screen doesn’t produce x-rays as a side effect, but in the case of CRT the electrons colliding with a screen in a vacuum do that, and it necessitates radiation shielding.
3. The nonexistence of x-ray risk in laser phosphor display gadgets also does away with the requirement for the safety circuits that in the case of the CRT monitors are required to close the display in case it goes wrong and starts emitting higher and more unsafe levels of x-rays.
4. Laser Phosphor Display requires less electricity, vis-à-vis some other rival technologies, such as LCD and light-emitting diode (LED). LPD utilizes a maximum of 75% less power, vis-à-vis most other display technologies available today in the market. LPD gadgets differ considerably from LCD in that, an astonishingly high, in fact, 90% of the original light, is wasted in the latter process.
5. The TD2, building block of an LPD video wall, isn’t plagued with the issue of low brightness, has no toxic part, no consumables, even as it also doesn’t create much heat.
6. Besides, its displays are greatly configurable and may be stacked flawlessly to create huge high-resolution video walls of roughly every size and shape.
7. Great black levels, a broad 180-degree screening angle, a 65,000-hour panel life minus burn-in issues, fully recyclable parts, and mercury-free production procedure.
