Business Guide To LCD Displays


Between 1964 and 1968, a research team under the leadership of George Heilmeier created the first liquid crystal display. This creation ushered in a new display era, which would eventually make traditional CRTs obsolete and offer affordable displays in an incredible range of sizes. For businesses, this technology has allowed the development of computer systems that are evermore reliant on visual displays. LCD displays are slimmer, more portable and can be used in a wide range of settings. They produce less flickering and are less susceptible to interference caused by heat and electrical and magnetic phenomena. This is particularly useful for laptops, where the display needs to be thin but capable of withstanding minor surges.

Benefits         

Widespread Availability

The widespread availability of LCDs allows a business to share information as never before. With so many choices in display models, even smaller companies can afford system setups that allow for the display of any document imaginable, in any location. With inexpensive LCD availability, the costs of computer system setup drops significantly, allowing even smaller companies to take full advantage of database and network technology, increasing both efficiency and productivity.

Scalability

The scalability of the LCD is a large factor in its acceptance in business circles. With CRTS, display size was limited. Small-scale, inches-high CRTs were prohibitively expensive to use within a normal business setting. The LCD removes these small-scale pricing obstacles by offering smaller units at affordable prices. Modern LCDs have unparalleled scalability, allowing the implementation of smaller displays wherever needed.

No longer is a display limited to desktop duty. With small LCDs and widely available network technology, a business can allow its workers the freedom of mobility. This mobility allows innovations such as real-time display of police databases for mobile patrol units, inventory management control for roaming workers throughout warehouses and simple email access anywhere a company’s wireless plan has reach.

Energy Savings

LCDs are typically energy efficient. When reducing energy use becomes a company policy, the widespread use of LCD technology instead of CRTs can provide a large energy savings. When the company creating this savings is national or international in size, that savings can have a visible effect on profits.

Maintenance Savings

An LCD display uses fewer parts than a CRT, and, as with most electrical systems, the fewer parts in operation, the less chance there is of something going wrong. With a reduction in unit failure among LCDs comes a reduction in maintenance costs to keep a company’s LCDs up and running. Any savings in a company can equal profit for that company. With LCDs, the savings in maintenance costs alone can begin to pay back a large portion of the initial costs of the LCD purchases throughout the organization.

Pitfalls

Correct LCD Panel

During your hunt for the correct LCD screen, it is important to remember to watch out for the correct type of LCD panel needed by your office workers. The panels themselves come in many different styles, each with different strengths or weaknesses. Some panels are better at quickly reproducing the image being displayed by computers. These types of panels are generally used by gamers and are not really helpful for office work. In addition, they are a lot more expensive. For general office work, you don’t need any type of special features on your LCD screen, so avoid the gimmicks and sales pitches.

Multiscreen Setups

Depending on your home or office needs, a multiscreen setup might actually be what you need. These are generally useful for workers who do lots of data entry and need a large amount of screen space. Any type of media editing will need multiple monitors for each workstation, but the majority of users will only need a single monitor. This is because of the widespread implementation of widescreen LCD screens. With a widescreen LCD display, you can get the utility of two screens in the convenient size of a single panel. Multiple display setups are usually overhyped, so just buy a good widescreen.

Screen Finishes

There are two different types of LCD displays to choose from. The first is the glossy finish, which is generally helpful in bright light situations. This finish can cause problems, though, because it is more reflective than a matte screen. While the matte screen won’t reflect nearly as much light as the glossy finish, sometimes it won’t look as bright or crisp as the glossy display. The real decision is in the hands of the buyer, as it is more a matter of preference, but, generally, a matte display will work best.

Viewing Angles

One of the most overlooked pitfalls when researching which LCD screen to purchase is the viewing angle. While a screen can look brilliant from head-on, the image quality can drastically drop when users move away from the area directly in front of the panel. Avoid being tricked by pictures where you can only see one angle. Visit the panel in the store to get a correct idea of the possible viewing angles.

Pricing

It is very hard to get CRT monitors and TVs now, as LCD displays have almost completely replaced them. Businesses seeking to upgrade older generation LCD and CRT displays need to consider the price of buying new LCD displays.

Costs by Need or Name Brand


When choosing a television for your business needs, consider whether you want to buy only what you need or the more prestigious name brand. According to Consumer Reports, “The default resolution for a 15-inch widescreen LCD is 1280 by 800 pixels, and the default for a 17-inch widescreen is 1440 by 900 pixels.” This should serve as the baseline for quality in your search. LCD televisions have dropped dramatically in price. You should expect to pay around $150 for a smaller 17- to 21-inch screen and around $500 or more for anything above 32 inches. Branded LCD displays tend to cost more. The same television sizes listed would cost as much as 20 to 30% more if a name brand was purchased.

Monitor

LCD monitors are often considered the standard. A 20-inch monitor can cost you as little as $90. Buying in bulk is likely to net you a discount, the amount of which varies with the number of monitors purchased.

Conclusion

LCD displays are much better than the old CRT monitors they replaced. LCDs are thinner, lighter and can give a much larger display in a much smaller room than a CRT ever could. They are more reliable, and they are easy to source. While it is easy to end up paying for extras you don’t need, such as a fast response time, precisely calibrated color, or even a branded product, a good shopping list and a certain amount of research will help you make the best choice when buying these essentials in bulk. LCD displays are crucial to displaying information easily on any computer, so make sure you know what you need.
