Transflective vs Blanview LCD

Transflective and blanview are two separate technologies that enable different display use cases. Blanview technology combines the advantages of transflective and transmissive displays, which use backlights and reflective resistors. This technology allows for high efficiency, making them an excellent fit for mobile battery-powered devices.

Transflective displays feature a partially transparent reflector in front of the backlight so surrounding ambient light can be used to illuminate the screen. Because they reflect and transmit light, these displays are called transflective; transflective = reflecting + transmissive. For bright ambient conditions and outdoor applications, Focus LCDs provides a number of such display choices. Transflective displays may be illuminated with or without a backlight, unlike transmissive displays, which are always paired with a backlight. Reduced power consumption is one advantage of transflective screens: the backlight may be switched off using the display's reflective polarizer. In dark surroundings, the display employs backlighting with a transmissive property, while it uses the reflection of external light in bright conditions. The backlight is made up of a series and/or parallel arrangement of LEDs. More LEDs will be used in sunlight-readable displays to increase brightness. When picking an LCD, the backlight circuit should be taken into account because it is frequently the display's highest source of power consumption.

Blanview displays have great display readability in outdoor and bright environments while using limited power. There is also substantially reduced display performance variation between indoor and outdoor conditions/temperatures. Blanview LCDs are known for their low power consumption, typically between 40 - 60% power savings compared to traditional transmissive displays - this is ideal for mobile use cases.

Blanview achieves an optimum balance between incoming light reflection and outstanding backlight consumption efficiency. These unique qualities are achieved through a combination of pixel design and manufacturing technology with a high aperture ratio and optical design optimization (optical films, color filters, and so on) as well as reflecting layer architecture to avoid blocking the backlight light path. This unique technology allows us to "hybridize" the usage of backlight and incident light from the outside. Blanview tech is able to reduce total power consumption while providing outstanding display readability in any scenario. Some examples of use cases for blanview displays are handheld laptops, police radios, and wearable devices. These panels have an increased transmittance (by up to 30%) which allows for even better outdoor performance than other options; in some use cases, a backlight may not even be needed due to this improved efficiency.

While these displays are relatively similar, blanview technology is cutting edge. Depending on your use case, Focus LCDs can help answer your questions and offers a wide variety of options to ensure your projects are a success; this is paired with a limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship.
