electroluminescent (EL) displayThe utilization of the light produced when electrical energy is directly converted into light within devices used for visual...
character generatorComputer hardware or firmware that accesses character patterns stored in read-only memory and displays them at specific...
telepresenceThe use of head-mounted displays and body-operated remote actuators to control distant machinery. Provides a virtual...
enhanced graphic adaptor (EGA)An image processing device that displays pseudocolor images by assigning colors to the gray scales according to look-up...

infrared image tubeAn image converter that produces a visible image based on the infrared emittance of the object. The infrared energy is...
deformation constantAny of the constants that relate the tendency of the director to remain parallel to restoring torques throughout the media....
active-matrixAn OLED display that has an integrated electronic backplane as its substrate. Active-matrix OLED displays use at least two...
twisted nematic phaseA form of liquid crystal widely used in displays, achieved by sandwiching a liquid crystal material between two substrates...
jitter1. In relation to cathode-ray tube displays, errors in the signal's amplitude, phase or both that result in small, rapid...
character generation cathode-ray tubeA cathode-ray tube that generates symbols for use in other displays. The tube operates by scanning specific characters on...
