Transparent display comparison

What is a transparent display?

A transparent display is an electronic screen that shows the information on a transparent surface, allowing you to see through it. 

As display technologies evolve, transparent displays that used to show up only in sci-fi movies are gradually made available in real life. What types of transparent displays are available in the consumer and B2B market? What are the pros and cons of different transparent display technologies? How do you choose the right transparent displays for your application?

Here we provide a detailed report of transparent display comparison, including LUMINEQ, OLED, TOLED, miniLED, and projection in two application areas:

  • Vehicle head-up displays
  • Transparent displays for optical devices such as scopes and night vision devices 

Comparison of transparent displays for vehicle head-up displays

Below is a list of pros and cons of different head-up display solutions in terms of construction, installation, integration, lamination readiness, focal point, transmission, operating temperature range, resistant to shock and vibration, reaction to humidity and solar load, optical uniformity, maturity, color, production life, and product lifetime.
