Sharp to Roll Out 5-Primary-Color Display

Sharp to Roll Out 5-Primary-Color Display

Sharp says they have developed an LCD monitor that can display five primary colors: Red, Green and Blue (RGB), plus Cyan and Yellow. What this means, Sharps says, is that their new monitor can render real surface colors the way humans see them.

A prototype of this display will be exhibited at the international symposium of the Society for Information Display (SID) to be held in San Antonio, Texas, US from May 31 through June 5, 2009.

Sharp explains that this five-primary-color display comprises “Multi-Primary-Color Technology” featuring a special image processing circuitry, in addition to the display panel whose pixel structure is based on five-color filters that add the colors C (cyan) and Y (yellow) to the three colors of R (red), G (green), and B (blue). This combination expands the color gamut (range of reproducible colors) that can be rendered within the color spectrum that humans can discern with the unaided eye, and enables the display to reproduce more than 99% of real surface colors.
