Tianma NLT USA, a leading provider of small to medium size display solutions to the US market, recently unveiled four new outdoor viewable liquid crystal displays - an 8.0-inch diagonal WVGA, a 12.1-inch WXGA, a 15.0-inch XGA, and a 15.6-inch Full HD.

These ultra-high luminance display modules, developed by NLT Technologies Limited, a Tianma Group company, are ideal for industrial applications that need better viewing quality in outdoor or other high ambient light environments.

Key Features of Tianma Outdoor Viewable Liquid Crystal Display Modules

Ultra-High Luminance

The 12.1-inch wide and 15.0-inch modules have a luminance of 1600cd/m2, the 15.6-inch wide model has a luminance of 1500 cd/m2, and the 8.0-inch wide model has a luminance of 1000 cd/m2. The ultra-high luminance outdoor displays produce vivid colors and outstanding visibility even in intense light environments such as direct sunlight.

Broad Operating Temperature Range

All the four new products feature a wide operating temperature range. The Tianma 8.0-inch wide display model has the broadest operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C, which permits accurate display of images even in environments with great temperature fluctuations.

Enhanced Display Performance

Tianma’s 8.0-inch wide and 15.6-inch wide display modules include NLT’s proprietary SFT (Super Fine TFT) wide viewing angle technology. The SFT technology offers vertical and horizontal ultra-wide viewing angles of 176 degrees, reduces the shift in color that might happen due to the changes in viewing angle, and ensures superb clarity without visual stress in a range of operating environments.

The demand for superior display products that are designed to endure harsh outdoor conditions is growing exponentially, driven by the surge in various industrial display applications.  Tianma’s new outdoor viewable liquid crystal display modules not only guarantee ultra-high luminance in intense ambient light environments but also ensure excellent performance and reliability in a variety of operating conditions.
