RESIZING LCDs

LCDs are manufactured in highly automated, billion dollar factories in very high volume and in limited sizes for mass-market applications such as consumer electronics: televisions, smart phones, computers and the like. It is not cost effective to make small runs of unique sizes because of the capitalization, tooling and setup costs; but it is cost-effective to excise a smaller display from a mass-produced donor panel design. That is our unique, patented technology, the ability to make custom, unique sizes from standard donor sources. These custom displays are as rich in the technology sophistication that is required for LCDs and through our process technology, every bit as robust. We bridge the divide between mass production requirements and lower-volume needs of custom-sized applications.

OUR TECHNOLOGY

Making a custom-sized, active-matrix, liquid-crystal display (AMLCD) from a mass-produced donor panel is a sophisticated process. It involves excising a section out of a new, fully-functioning display and re-enabling its functions. The polarizers are trimmed away from the excised edge and the two glass substrates are precisely cut. The excised display is sealed along the fresh edge or edges with a proprietary sealing process that like the original, adheres between the plates and is robust enough for use in our military and commercial aircraft applications. And not the least of our process sophistication is the re-enabling the circuit board functions in a more compact form when needed, by drawing upon our engineering depth in LCD electronic operation. When we began in 1999, it was widely thought it would be impossible to preserve the original performance of a perfectly good display after effectively breaking it. But science proved otherwise and founder Larry Tannas developed a process to reliably excise a new display from a donor source. Pixel Scientificâ„¢, Inc. (originally founded as Tannas Electronic Displays) initially supplied the aerospace industry with a desperately needed source of custom displays. Today, we continue to serve the Aerospace markets, the industrial and medical markets and most recently, the growing need for quite large custom sizes in the emerging Digital Signage industry. In addition to our standard products, Pixel Scientific provides prototyping for early-stage concepts in consumer electronics, concept cars, aerospace and other industries. We have licensed our technology (underpinned by a large and evolving international patent portfolio) to a select set of qualified companies world wide, in various markets, to enable a custom-sized display industry. We and the industry we enable provide custom displays for applications in aerospace, medical, digital signage, transportation, gaming machines and other industries. Collectively, we bring the economies of scale that benefit consumer electronic applications to the other great display applications that need all the same technology intricacy but in volumes where OEM display sourcing is simply out of reach.
