Reflections on Reflections-What you need to know about reflection and display technology.
General Digital offers us an in depth article explaining the significance of reflection to display technology. The term reflection actually encompasses three entirely different types of optical phenomena. These three kinds of reflection are specular reflection (like a mirror), diffuse reflection (often called Lambertian) and reflexive reflection (or retro-reflection). By careful design of the display and installation, it is possible to produce a display with adequate luminance and contrast (for both specular and diffuse reflections) to allow the user to comfortably read the display and take action on the data so obtained.

Reflections on Reflections

Specular reflections are those we normally associate with a highly polished surface, such as a mirror. In technical terms, the angle of incidence of the light is equal to the angle of reflection of the light (see figure 1). All materials obey the law of reflection when viewed at a fine enough detail. It is the specular reflection which is responsible for forming an image in a shiny surface. It also results in a bright spot, called a specular highlight, when a small light source is at such a position that it can reflect into the eye.

LCD inspection pixel grades

LCD’s that come off the production line new are not 100% pixel defect free. LCD manufactures created their own LCD grading system in order to account for the variations in pixel quality.  There are acceptable limits within the LCD market to the number of dead pixels within a specific sector of the LCD.  Below are the manufacturer’s terminology

Brand new Z grade (AUO grading system)
Zero pixel defects- not even 1 pixel can be dead.

Brand New A grade (all other mfrs) (P Grade for AUO)
(1,3,3)- 1 sub pixel can be out in 1 sector up to 3 pixels can be out (these are never noticeable to the naked eye)

Brand New A minus grade (N grade for AUO)
(3,3,5)- up to 3 sub pixels out in 1 sector

Brand New B grade
(3,5,7) Up to 7 bad sub pixels.
