Paper Abstract

In the Information Age of multimedia computer and presentation, video-telephone conferencing and interactive television, display designs have increased demands for even higher resolution, greater definition, increased color palette, higher speed and large size. These performance demands are required on equipment that is space efficient, transportable, and usable in commercial, industrial and military applications. FPD designs are flourishing because the CRT is neither space efficient or easily transportable, nor cost effective in larger sizes and in ruggedized form. In addition, communications and computing systems for high definition imaging information are based on digital interfacing rather than analog. A video digital interface (VDI) is therefore more cost effective and higher performance for FPDs which use data directly from the computer system and circumvent the analog and rescan conversions that occur for CRTs. Photonics has developed and produces high resolution AC plasma FPDs that can accept both in analog or digital form imaging information that is presented at up to 75 frames per second, 1280 X 1024 full color pixel resolution and 8 bits of gray scale per color channel. This paper explores cost effective and high performance capabilities of the FPD-VDI and how it integrated with high definition computer and communications systems.
