What are bar displays?
Sometimes a front panel design can have space restrictions and standard 4:3 or 16:9 LCD displays are simply too big.
Bar Displays, also known as Letterbox TFT or Stretch TFTs, are exactly as they sound, ultra-wide form factor displays which can fit into industrial 1U rack mount systems or front panels in marine dashboards, instrument panels or retail signage systems where height is an issue but you still want to display lots of information to the user.
We have a range of standard size letterbox displays and can also produce a range of cut-down TFTs which allows you to have the display you want in your existing enclosure without losing resolution or performance, thereby saving valuable re-design cost and resources. Learn more about this service below.
Our Bar Type TFT Display range
We offer a range of off the shelf letterbox / Bar Type TFT displays including the high performance 16:6 aspect ratio 12.3” letterbox IPS TFT Display allowing designers to provide a high contrast image that can be easily viewed over a wide angle even in bright sunlight. In addition we have an 11" module with high brightness display.
As most applications require specific drop in replacements, we recommend contacting us with your exact requirements so we can find a solution that fits perfectly.
Cut down TFT design service
All this at much lower NRE than a full custom TFT display of a bespoke size. As with all our displays, we can customise to suit your specific application.
The entire process, including resizing and the addition of a backlight and touch interface, is carried out at a single ISO9001 accredited site with appropriate clean room facilities.
See below table of the Examples of sizes achievable:
