12.3in. Letterbox TFT Display transforms industrial design

Here at Anders we are transforming front panel design with a high performance 16:6 aspect ratio Letterbox IPS TFT Display allowing designers to revolutionise dashboards and instrument panel design. 


Our letterbox display offers an outstanding IPS TFT screen in a unique form factor. It provides a high contrast image that can be easily viewed over a wide angle even in bright sunlight and unfavourable conditions.

This is a very high performance display, with a contrast ratio of 800 and a surface luminance of 850 cd/m2.  Viewing angle is 85° x 85° x 85° x 85°, allowing it to be read from an almost side-on position.

Its’ resolution is 1280 x 480 at a pixel pitch of 0.228mm.

We are offering the display with optional five-touch CTP (Capacitive Touch Panel), operating through a 1.80mm thick cover glass. The thickness can be increased to 6.00mm with single touch operation. For maximum optical clarity, the touch panel and cover glass can be optically bonded to the display.



Commenting, Paul Hooper, Display Group Manager at Anders said,

“We’re breaking the mould of display design with this innovative and unusual display. Most displays on the market are on 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratios, which are a legacy of TVs and computer monitors and aren’t designed for the clear and effective presentation of information in a user interface. This display allows designers to create a very different front panel around an exceptionally clear, bright and easy to read display.”

Suitable for use in portrait or landscape mode, the display has a diagonal of 12.3” and is 340.7 mm wide by 150.7 mm high. Standard features include an LVDS interface, an anti-glare coating and an LED backlight with a rated life of 70,000 hours to half brightness. The wide operating temperature of -30 deg C to + 80 deg C is key for industrial, automotive and marine applications.
