NEC unveils LCD with adjustable viewing angle

Posted on Saturday, Oct 27 2007 @ 13:11 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
NEC unveiled some details about a new LCD display that features an adjustable viewing angle. This display allows users to switch between narrow and wide viewing angles:
This ability enables viewers to narrow the 140-degree viewing angle down to 30-degrees so that any plans to sneak a peek at what you're glancing at are immediately subverted. Furthermore, NEC's technology is said to differ from other alternatives by "not causing image quality to deteriorate," as it relies on a function of the rear plate (as opposed to the panel's front plate) to handle the switcheroo. If everything stays on track, expect these units to hit the market sometime next year in everything from ATMs to laptops.
