Have you heard of stacked resolution? It’s a feature found in certain liquid-crystal displays (LCDs). Televisions, human machine interfaces (HMIs), tablet computers and smartphones often use an LCD. Even if they support touch commands, they still require a display to project images — and LCD is the most common type of display technology used in these and other devices. Some LCDs, however, are designed with a feature known as stacked resolution. To learn more about stacked resolution and how it works, keep reading.

The Basics of Stacked Resolution

Stacked resolution is an LCD feature that involves the use of multiple layers of liquid pixels to achieve a higher pixel count. All LCDs contain at least one layer of liquid pixels. They are defined, in fact, by their use of liquid pixels. LCDs contain liquid organic matter that, when exposed to backlighting, illuminates to produce an image. Stacked resolution is a feature in which an LCD is designed with multiple layers of liquid pixels.

How Stacked Resolution Works

How does stacked resolution work? When designing an LCD with stacked resolution, the manufacturer will place multiple layers of liquid pixels on top of each other. The layers will essentially be “stacked,” hence the name for this feature.

Even though the layers are stacked, they’ll create the perception of a single layer. You won’t be able to tell that the LCD has multiple layers of liquid pixels. Rather, the pixels will operate in sync to create the same types of images as a traditional LCD without this feature. The only difference is that stacked resolution uses multiple layers of liquid pixels instead of a single layer.

Benefits of Stacked Resolution

With stacked resolution, there’s no theoretical limit to how many pixels an LCD can have. The resolution of an LCD is determined by its number of pixels. The more pixels an LCD has, the higher its resolution will be. If an LCD only has a single layer of liquid pixels, its resolution will be limited to the number of pixels that can fit into that layer.

Stacked resolution doesn’t use a single layer of liquid pixels. It specifically involves the use of multiple layers, which are stacked together. Therefore, LCDs with stacked resolution typically have more pixels and a higher resolution than their unstacked counterparts.

In Conclusion

Stacked resolution is an image-enhancing feature that’s characterized by the use of multiple pixel layers. The layers are stacked on top of each other, resulting in a higher total pixel count.
