SharpSharp switchable viewing angle LCD development : Sharp Corporation and Sharp Laboratories of Europe, Ltd. have developed a new LCD, which enables the LCD to be switched between a wide viewing angle and narrow viewing angle by means of an electrical ON/OFF switching action. This will allow people to view email and other private information on portable devices such as mobile phones and notebook PCs with peace of mind without having to worry about others in the vicinity snooping to peek at what is being displayed on the LCD screen. Sharp will begin mass production of this display beginning in July 2005. The switchable LCD is sure to contribute to increasing demand as an indispensable component of mobile devices.
Sharp switchable viewing angle LCD developmentSharp demand for personal information
As the ubiquitous network society fast becomes a reality, information can be readily accessed in nearly any setting, and the demand for personal information terminals, such as mobile phones, notebook PCs, and PDAs, is growing rapidly. At the same time, there is an increasing need to provide portable devices like mobile phones and notebook PCs, which are frequently used to handle private information/data, with the capability to “veil” the display so that the screen content cannot be seen by other people in the immediate area.

Sharp switchable viewing angle LCD - New technologies
The new Sharp switchable viewing angle LCD adds proprietary technologies such as a switching liquid crystal material overlaid on an ordinary TFT LCD so that light is prevented from going to the left or right, thus turning a wide viewing angle to a narrow viewing angle. This will allow people to use mobile devices with peace of mind, since they can change the viewing angle setting depending on the personal nature of the content they are viewing.
