All you need to know about TFT displays

Known for their resilience and versatility, TFT displays have revolutionised how information can be presented and managed across multiple industries. TFT stands for thin film transistor, and in displays, this refers to an active-matrix LCDs (liquid crystal displays). They are being used more frequently in new applications and designs, as they enable a better visual presentation and user experience. In comparison to standard passive matrix LCDs, a TFT provides very sharp images with shortened response times. Plus, TFTs consume less power than other display types, making them energy efficient.

Phasing out fluorescent tubes: Moving to sustainable lighting solutions

In recent years, the lighting market has shifted towards energy-efficient and sustainable solutions. Many governments and organisations across the European Union (EU) have been promoting more sustainable lighting technologies. The UK has followed suit and introduced a ban on these older lighting technologies including compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFLs). Inefficient traditional incandescent and CFL lighting solutions have become increasingly unavailable. Which is no surprise based on their notoriously short lifetimes and high energy consumption levels. Continue Reading »

10 Common LCD, OLED and TFT Display Questions

1. What is a TFT?

TFT stands for ‘Thin Film Transistor’ – it is a type of LCD that gives higher resolution and better image quality than standard LCDs. These are usually coloured, but Mono is becoming more popular and therefore more readily available. Continue Reading »

How LEDs have changed the world

Over the past decade, LED technologies have been popping up everywhere at an increasing rate. The applications are vast, from OLED displays, automotive, to street lighting, to home accent lighting around a TV. LEDs have become a default choice in many lighting applications, while older technologies like incandescent bulbs are becoming outdated. The lighting industry has been redefined by LED technologies, which only continue to develop, getting better, brighter, and more versatile. Continue Reading »

What is CRI (Colour Rendering Index)?

Colour rendering index (CRI) is one method of measuring the distinctive attributes of a light source. It has been around since 1937 and is often misunderstood as a metric of light colour output quality. When really it is an indicator of how well an artificial typically white light source accurately renders and reproduces the colours of illuminated objects, in comparison to natural sunlight. A white LED (Light Emitting Diodes) source with a high CRI rating will render accurate and vibrant colour tones across the full spectrum. Continue Reading »

Light Measurements in Horticulture

If you are involved with horticultural lighting, you have likely heard of the measurement micromole, often written as umol or μmol. Micromoles are widely used to measure the number of photons or ‘light particles’ within the visible light emitted from a grow light. A photon is the smallest discrete amount of electromagnetic radiation that transmits light. It is the basic unit of all light. Continue Reading »
