FAQ

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

According to the panel type of the transparent monitor, it can be divided into two types: LCD and OLED. 

The transparent monitor is made of a transparent LCD. 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 no 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 to the transparent monitor. It’s a transparent LED display monitor. Such a product is made with 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 machines, retail windows, display boxes, video walls, and many more. It has lots of custom parameters, such as size, resolution, function, and so on. Plenty of applications use such monitors with touch screens.

The transparent monitor has many details that you need to pay attention to, for example, the size, resolution, touch screen, and so on. If you want to buy such a product, what you need most is to find a professional supplier. The professional supplier can provide the perfect transparent monitors with the best quality and a pretty price.

GECEY is your best choice. GECEY is very professional in this field and we have the advantages of quality and price. GECEY has the full sizes of such products for selection. The functions are custom. Plenty of our products have been exported to lots of countries all over the world.

The size of the commonly used transparent monitor can be from 10” to 110”. Full sizes of monitors can meet you with 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 a 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 a 15” monitor is 1024 x 768, but the commonly used resolution of a 15.4” monitor is 1920×1080.

The backlight is the most confusing and easily overlooked point. Plenty of clients don’t know that a transparent monitor needs a 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.

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 at 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 be about 6000K (pure white).

The backlight is made of several LED strips and diffusers. 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 a backlight, please feel free to tell us.

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 a transparent monitor. Use different control boards, the functions would also be different. For details, please read the rest content.
  • Enclosure: for most monitors, the enclosures are essential, especially for 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 touchscreen function, but others don’t need it. 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 being just 1.4mm. The commonly used glass is a tempered glass whose thickness is from 4mm to 6mm.

Although the touch screen is optional, lots of transparent monitors are used with the touch screens. The monitor with a 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 screens and infrared touch screens.

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

For small-size transparent monitors, you can use either of them. For middle-size monitors and large-size monitors, the IR touch screen is more popular. We recommend using the IR touchscreen 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 videos, pictures, and others. The M.NT68676.2A is one of the control boards we use a lot for transparent monitors. The following is the detailed information.

M.NT68676.2A is a monitor control board, which is suitable for the Asia-Pacific market. It can support LED/LCD panels whose resolution is up to 2048×1152. M.NT68676.2A can synchronize with the computer automatically. Synchronization requires a synchronous signal in 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 advertising machines, display boxes, and other products. It’s a complex control board with an operating system. The transparent monitor with such a 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 advertisements, movies, pictures, and others which are stored on the U disk and SD card independently. If you need such a controller, please feel free to contact us.

The use method of the transparent monitor is similar to 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.

First 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 on their machines or equipment. 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 a white background. The brighter the white background, the more you can see through the monitor.

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

Although the transparent monitor looks like a high-tech product, it’s not a kind of new technology. It still belongs to the technology of liquid crystal display which has been widely used for over 20 years.

The transparent monitor is widely used in plenty of applications, such as gaming machines, LCD side panel cases, and so on. The followings are some common applications of such products.

Display Box: The display box is used to show the best products. The customers can see through the monitor to take a close look at the attractive products and read the detailed introductions on the screen. The box can just use a transparent monitor on one side, or two monitors which are back to back on two sides, or on all four sides. There are plenty of shops that need to introduce their flagship products to clients, for example, jewelry stores, cosmetics shops, smartwatch shops, and so on.

Refrigerator: The traditional refrigerator in which the door is made of glass is monotonous and uninteresting. The new refrigerator with the transparent monitor is much better. The door can play interesting videos, advertisements, and others. The door always uses large-size monitors, such as 50”, 55”, and so on. It’s very popular in supermarkets and shopping malls.

Vending Machine: Vending machine is one of the most popular applications. Plenty of clients buy transparent monitors and IR touch screens to make the doors of the machines. The clients can see the products through the door and select what they want to purchase. The touch screen is very convenient for them to choose drinks, foods, and others. The vending machine is very common in our daily life. You can see them in parks, supermarkets, hotels, and other places.

Video Wall: The video wall is usually used in big companies, museums, exhibition halls, and other places. The big company uses it to show their history and the museum uses it to show precious cultural relics. The video wall consists of several pieces of transparent monitors. People can not only look at the exhibits but also read their introductions of them.
