This is matched in other multimedia areas including televisions where higher resolutions, and the necessary content, are starting to become more popular and widely available. The arrival of "4k" resolutions is still very new in the desktop monitor market place and so far there have only been a few screens with these ultra high resolutions. The term "4k" refers to a screen with a horizontal resolution in the order of 4000 pixels. In fact what we are talking about with most of the desktop monitors is a "4k Ultra HD" resolution, which is 3840 x 2160 (8.3 mega pixels), that being four times the number of pixels of a 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Burn-in on a monitor, when severe, is visible even when the monitor is not powered on.

Screen burn-in

Screen burn-in, image burn-in or ghost image, colloquially known as screen burn, is a permanent discoloration of areas on an electronic display such as a cathode ray tube (CRT) display or computer display monitor or television set caused by cumulative non-uniform usage of the pixels. Causes of screen burn[edit] With phosphor-based electronic displays (for example CRT-type computer monitors or plasma displays), non-uniform use of pixels, such as prolonged display of non-moving images (text or graphics), gaming, or certain broadcasts with tickers and flags, can create a permanent ghost-like image of these objects or otherwise degrade image quality. This is because the phosphor compounds which emit light to produce images lose their luminance with use. Uneven usage results in uneven light output over time, and in severe cases can create a ghost image of previous content.

Black Uniformity of 2014 TVs: Clouding and Flashlighting. A television with flashlighting across the corners Flashlighting and clouding on a TV is a black uniformity problem found on LCD and LED TVs where the uniformity of the backlight is defective as shown in the picture.

The AKT-PiVot system’s modular architecture delivers significantly faster cycle time and enables a large variety of configurations to maximize production efficiency. Unlike traditional in-line systems, the AKT-PiVot’s parallel processing capability eliminates bottlenecks caused by different process times for each film layer.

The system’s cluster-like arrangement also allows continuous operation during individual module maintenance.

LTPS (Low-temperature polycrystalline silicon) Anyone else got backlight light bleed? Display Technology News Roundup 1.31.2013 - Display Industry News - Display Alliance. From our test labs: Today's thinner LCDs can show uneven lighting, even in bright scenes. LCD screens have often shown some backlight non-uniformity (called mura), because an LCD panel can let the backlight leak through more in certain spots than in others.

Normally, this appears as an uneven cloudiness that usually can be seen only when the screen image is dark or completely black. But as TVs get ever thinner, we've seen a new problem that can cause even more noticeable type of non-uniformity, which, at its worst, can be distracting even in bright scenes. For several years, both plasma and, especially, LCD TVs with LED backlights have been getting thinner and thinner as bezels and frames shrink, resulting in aesthetically pleasing, super-slim, borderless TVs. The new type of non-uniformity is caused by the LCD panel getting pinched and contorted by the cabinet assembly and producing bright patches of illumination, typically around the borders of the panel. Next-Generation Displays: Reality Sets In. As companies around the world showcased their latest developments, Display Week 2013 proved to be a good bellwether for how next-generation screen technologies were faring in the marketplace.

As an extension of the trend toward higher-resolution displays, a lot of attention was focused on 4K displays, which have the same resolution as four standard 1080p HDTVs tiled together. And LG Electronics and Samsung both continued to tout their 55-inch organic light-emitting diode (OLED) television displays, which had been shown before but are now being offered for sale. One of the themes of this year’s show, run in Vancouver at the end of May by the Society for Information Display, was whether the industry can deliver these next-generation displays in large numbers. Manufacturers cannot yet produce enough units to have viable mass-market products, and they’re spending a lot of time and money to achieve that goal.
