Sony has developed a Hybrid FPA (field-induced photo-reactive alignment) technology, a new liquid crystal alignment technique that allows for faster response times in liquid crystal displays (LCD). We’re talking about response times of less than 3ms being achieved in tests though this technology and it’s also touted to improve product stability during the display panel manufacturing process as well as after long-term use. It can also help achieve production efficiencies by reducing the manufacturing process and time. The technique that Sony uses is built on Sony’s current FPA technique and creates a stable and even alignment of liquid crystal molecules that improves response time and contrast ratio. Sony is planning on bringing the technology to market soon and will be demonstrating it on December 2nd at IDW 2010.
