Emergence of TFT-LCD Display Technology

Revision as of 10 August 2013 at 22:48.
The highlighted comment was created in this revision.

I am convinced that this proposed IEEE Milestone is appropriate recognition of the emergent TFT-LCD Display Technology 25 years ago. It addressed the need for large flat screen displays and the need to move away from CRT displays for ecological reasons as well as display quality reasons. However, I feel the proposal would benefit greatly from editing to improve the representation of the technology to both reasonably informed engineers and technologists and the general public which might enjoy museum like exposure to this technology that has had an almost certainly positive impact in their lives.

    I too feel editing is needed: What does TFT mean? The writing is very much overdone with too much editorializing- "breathtaking", "vacillating companies" "major-league status" don't belong in the citation. The comments above on the RCA work have to be addressed as well.

      Thank you for the two suggestions for improvement in presentation, including suppressing "too much editorializing" which simply came from the display quality of the 14 TFT-LCD being far better than I had personally expected before and got emotional somewhat too much.

      I appreciate kind suggestions and will add technical reference to give some quality specification numbers.

      Thank you again.

        I too agree that the citation needs to be modified as was suggested, and the issue with the RCA's Milestone and George Heilmaier's fundamental contributions need to be reconciled. The apparent non-public access location of the plaque should also me addressed.
