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 Display range

We offer a range of off the shelf letterbox / Bar Type TFT displays from 0.91" OLED display through to 48" UHD displays, ideal for signage displays. Included in the range it 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. 


High Definition Bar Displays

We offer a range of high definition and ultra-high definition bar displays which are ideal for passenger information systems. 

High brightness, high contrast ratio and all round viewing angles ensure vital information is visible at all times. 

All our display products can be optimised for your application including bespoke coverlens design, films and filters, touch options. See our full range of customisation services.

Cut down TFT design service

We can cut down TFT display sizes from 2.0" to 10.1" TFT to a specified height, and add touch control, FPCs and a backlight to any specification.

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:
