Chapter 1: What’s the transparent monitor

It’s a kind of computer display monitor which you can see through it when it’s working. It has several names, such as transparent screen, see through monitor and so on.

According to the panel type used by the transparent monitor, it can be divided into two types: transparent LCD monitor and transparent OLED monitor. What we introduce in this article is the LCD monitor and you can read difference between them is chapter 4. For the OLED monitor, you can click and read the transparent OLED display page.

The transparent monitor is made by the transparent LCD screen. If you want to see through it when it’s working, there is an essential condition. That is the monitor needs to work with the bright white backlight. If there is not the backlight, the screen would be dark and you can see nothing from it.

There is a kind of product which the name is very similar with the transparent monitor. It’s the transparent LED display monitor. Such product is made by the plenty of RGB LEDs. Its resolution is much lower, but the size can be very big. For details, you can read this page: What’s the transparent LED?

The transparent monitor is widely used in many applications, such as vending machine, retail windows, LCD display box, video wall and many more. It has lots of custom parameters, such as the size, resolution, function and so on. Plenty of applications use such monitor with the touch screen.

Chapter 3: Size and resolution

The size of commonly used transparent monitor can be from 10” to 110”. Full sizes of monitors can meet your any applications. There are some special monitors in the market, such as the stretched bar. It’s a kind of bar type monitor. If you need the bar type transparent monitor, such as 1/2 32”, please feel free to contact us first.

The resolution is also an important factor when you prepare to buy the transparent monitor. The commonly used resolution is 1920×1080( FHD ). However the resolution is always related to the screen size. For example, the commonly used resolution of 15” monitor is 1024 x 768, but the commonly used resolution of 15.4” monitor is 1920×1080.

The 4K resolution(3840 x 2160) is more and more popular, but there isn’t the transparent monitor with such resolution in the list above. This is because the 4K is just available for some sizes. The higher the resolution, the lower the light transmittance. So we recommend to use the 1920 x 1080. If you need the 4K resolution, please contact us first.


Plenty of people sent the messages to tell us that they need the transparent monitor. However, it’s hard to know what kind of such monitor they need from the messages. So we sent the both the videos of LCD monitor and OLED monitor to them, then they understood the difference and told us which one is the best for their applications.

Some clients told us that they needed some 24” transparent monitors to replace their common desktop computer monitors. Some other clients told us their applications need to use 17” transparent monitors and the users could see each other from both sides of the monitor screen.

For similar questions, we usually told them that it’s very hard to provide the product like that, caused by from their description, the transparent OLED is more suitable for their applications, but the transparent OLED just has 55” which is available.

The sizes of LCD monitors can be from 10” to 110”, so you have full freedom to select the right size of such transparent monitor for your application. However, as we mentioned at the beginning of the article, it need to work with the backlight system.

So, which one is the best for your application, transparent LCD or transparent OLED? If you have no idea, then the following table will show you the main difference between them. You can check and select the best transparent monitor.

Chapter 5: Backlight of transparent monitor

The backlight is the most confusing and easily overlooked point. Plenty of clients don’t know that transparent monitor needs the backlight. Many clients tell us that they need a 15 inch see through monitor to replace the monitor of their laptop. In fact, it’s impossible, unless it’s OLED screen. However, there isn’t 15” OLED screen which is transparent in the market.

The backlight is essential when the transparent monitor is working. If not, the whole monitor screen would be dark and you can see nothing. The backlight is placed in the back of the screen. It can be at the top or at the bottom. It can also be on 4 sides. The only condition is that it needs to be bright enough and the color temperature of the light should to be about 6000K (pure white).

The backlight is made by several LED strips and diffuser. It’s very easy to get them from the online platform or your local shops. Usually, the transparent monitor we exported to the clients doesn’t contain the backlight system. The customer’s machine can provide the backlight for the monitor. If you need the monitor kit with backlight, please feel free to tell us.

Chapter 6: Main parts of transparent monitor

The structure of the transparent monitor is simple. The main parts are as followings:

  • transparent screen: For details, please read the transparent LCD
  • Control board: it’s essential for the monitor. It’s used to connect the computer and drive the screen. It has many interfaces, such as HDMI, VGA ,DVI and others. The computer monitor is not the only function of transparent monitor. Use different control board, the functions would also different. For details, please read the chapter 8.
  • Enclosure : for most of the monitors, the enclosures are essential, especially for the big size monitors. They are used to hold the screens and protect them in the process of moving and using.
  • Touch screen: it’s optional. Many clients need the touch screen function, but others don’t need. The most commonly used touch screens are the capacitive touch screen and IR touch screen. For the details, please read the next chapter.
  • Glass: it’s used to protect the monitor screen. The glasses are installed on one surface or both surfaces of the screen. The monitor screen is very easy to be damaged, caused by the thickness is just 1.4mm. The commonly used glass is the tempered glass which the thickness is from 4mm to 6mm.

Chapter 7: Touch screen

Although the touch screen is optional, lots of transparent monitors are used with the touch screens. The monitor with touch screen is interactive. The customers can use their fingers to tell the machines what they want to do next. For the transparent monitor, there are two kinds of commonly used touch screens. They are capacitive touch screen and infrared touch screen.

The capacitive touch screen is transparent and frameless. The thickness is just about 2 mm. The IR touch screen has the frame, but the quality is more stable for large size and its price is better than the capacitive touch screen.

For small size transparent monitor, you can use either of them. For middle size monitor and large size monitor, the IR touch screen is more popular. We recommend to use the IR touch screen, because it’s strong and easy to be installed.

The control board is essential for the transparent monitor. According to the function, the controllers can be divided into two types. The first type is widely used in various computer monitors. Its function is very simple. It just can be connected to the computer and drive the screen to display the videos, pictures and others.

The M.NT68676.2A is one of the control boards we use a lot for transparent monitor. The following is the detail information.


M.NT68676.2A is a monitor control board, which is suitable for Asia-Pacific market. It can support LED/LCD panels which resolution is up to 2048×1152.
M.NT68676.2A can synchronize with computer automatically. Synchronization requires the synchronous signal which horizontal and vertical sync are separated.
M.NT68676.2A can support dynamic contrast control, headphone input and Digital volume control simultaneously.

The second type is often used in the advertising machine, display box and other products. It’s a complex control board with operating system. The transparent monitor with such control board is smart and can be connected to the network via WIFI. It has rich interfaces.

You can not only connect it to the computer, but also play the advertisements, movies, pictures and others which are stored on the U disk and SD card independently. If you need such controller, please feel free to contact us.

Chapter 9: Interface of transparent computer monitor

The interface is very important for the computer monitor. A rich interface is much more convenient in using. The most commonly used interfaces of the transparent monitor are VGA, DVI and HDMI and so on.

The VGA is for low resolution and the DVI and HDMI are for high resolution. You can request that the monitor has all of the 3 interfaces. That’s very easy for the manufacturer.


The use method of transparent monitor is similar with the common computer monitor. Use the VGA cable, DVI cable or HDMI cable to connect it to the computer and plug in the power, then you can use it. You need to do the following two points during normal use.

Fist of all, as we have mentioned at the beginning of the article, you need to provide the backlight for the transparent monitor. Usually, the clients buy the transparent monitors from us, then install them to their machines or equipments. Their machines can provide the backlight for the monitor.

Second, when you make the videos or pictures which will be played on the monitor, please remember to use the white background. For LCD monitor, the effect of white backlight is the best for transparency. The more the white background, the more you can see through the monitor. This is very different with the transparent OLED.

Chapter 11: See through from single side or both sides

This is a very interesting question. Plenty of clients think that they can see through the transparent monitor from both sides. However, it’s not the truth. You can just see through it from the front of the screen and it’s impossible from the back. This is one of the disadvantages of such product.

If you want to see through from both sides, please use the 55”  transparent OLED display.

Chapter 12: Is the transparent monitor a new technology

Although the transparent monitor looks like a high-tech product, but it’s  not a kind of new technology. It still belongs to the technology of liquid crystal display which has been widely used over 20 years. Compared with common LCD, the biggest difference of such monitor is its light transmittance is higher. The transparent OLED is the new technology, but the cost is much higher and the size is also fixed, only 55 inch is available.

Chapter 13: Some applications of transparent monitor

The transparent monitor is widely used in plenty of applications, such as the gaming machine, LCD side panel case and so on. The followings are some common applications of such product.

There are plenty of shops which need to introduce their flagship products to clients, for example the jewelry stores, cosmetics shops, smart watch shops and so on.
