Abstract

Electronic display is one of the most conspicuous electronic devices, and plays a significant role in visualizing multimedia information. The displays are used in a wide variety of consumer applications such as television, computer, calculators, scientific and military applications. Depending on the application, the display may also be called a monitor, a video display terminal, or a television receiver. Display devices have been available for several decades, and are continuously being improved. With the establishment of the high definition television standard, superior quality TV monitors are in high demand.
