What is a Transparent Display?

A transparent display is a type of electronic display technology that allows light to pass through the display panel, making the content on the screen visible while maintaining transparency. Unlike traditional displays that are opaque, transparent displays enable users to see objects or scenes behind the screen.

Transparent Technologies

LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)

Transparent LCDs use a special type of liquid crystal material that allows light to pass through when an electric current is applied. When the display is turned off, it appears transparent.

OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode)

Transparent OLED displays use organic compounds that emit light when an electric current is applied. These displays are self-emissive, meaning they don’t require a backlight. When the OLED pixels are turned off, the display is transparent.

LED (Light-Emitting Diode)

Transparent LED displays use LEDs that emit light directly. These displays are often constructed using transparent materials, such as glass, with embedded LEDs. When the LEDs are off, the display is transparent.
