Pros And Cons Of Four Transparent Display Technologies

The world is blooming at its best with the impressive transparent monitor that includes any electronic screen to show information on a transparent surface. It allows you to see through it and makes it most eye-catching to all.  What so ever, if you think that the newest technology of the transparent LCD or monitor is taking the craze of the market away, then you are absolutely correct.

There are majorly four types of transparent technology available in the market which projects the head-up displays like the HUDs, LCDs, OLEDs and the TASEL (transparent electroluminescent displays).  There are numerous pros and cons that one needs to look into for the transparent display of the technology to play the most active part in the present technological world. 


This is a typical projection head-up display which uses the projection system to project the images onto pieces of glass in front of the viewer.  There are three primary components: a projector, combiner and a video generation computer. Frankly, the HUDs use to be restricted to aeroplanes with cars that start to adopt the technology for assisting the drivers with critical information. 


  • The drivers receive important information within their own field, by maintaining the concentration when driving. 
  • The transparent monitor does not need any refocus between the information and outside the cockpit.
  • Limited viewing with the angles 


  • It is complicatedly set up with occupies and takes a lot of space.
  • It is sometimes difficult for fighter pilots to understand the usage in emergency times. 
  • The vital information is often not clearly displayed. 


The usability of transparent LCDs is something that was discovered by Samsung in the year 2012. The production of the Samsung Transparent Smart Window, the information is much needed to reintroduce the backlight and view it with the latest technology. The display of the LCDs is very impressive and loved by all.


  • Much improved picture quality with backlight LEDs over a large number of transparent bulbs
  • The richness of the colour depth is compared to a plasma screen displays which had an incomparable outlook
  • The multifunctional capability of the television displays are also doubling as a PC monitor
  • It is cheaper to manufacture compared to other transparent displays
  • 20 to 30 per cent of the energy efficiency is compared with the older types of the bulb and plasma  displays


  • Simply disappointing when the reproduction of the black images
  • Restricted to the brightness of images
  • The limited angle of viewing
  • Transparent LCDs screen do suffer from blur issue
  • It is much thinner and lighter which requires much care in handling
  • It is limited to certain use only


The most vibrant and talked about organic light-emitting diode displays or the OLEDs are useful for many televisions. It does not require any sort of backlight or even filter to use the pixels for producing their own light. The thinners and much lighter is the higher level of brightness is created majorly in the Smartphone, tablets, computers and portable gaming consoles. 


  • The plastic layer used in OLEDs is lighter and thinner than the LCDs
  • It does not require any sort of external light for absorbing bright picture
  • The richer the colour and true blacks are mainly compared to the Television displays 
  • It does not have any screen blur issue
  • It is much easy to produce



  • The organic materials used for the manufacturing of the OLEDs are sometimes affected by the environment. It is sensitive to moisture and screen discolouration may happen.


  • It tends to lose the brightness much faster than any other displays
  • The Pixels simply burns away
  • It is too expensive to manufacture and customers to buy it


It is one of the most consistent to the glass panels with a luminescent phosphorous layer along with a circuit board which contains the drive and control. It is directly connected to the glass panel for making the panel lighten up.
