Toshiba Matsushita Display Technology Co. has unveiled a new type of LCD display that adds an image capturing function. The "Input Display" has an optical sensor next to each pixel. When placed on an object, the display scans an area of actual display size and captures it as a 960x240-pixel monochrome image. The company expects the display to open new applications, such as integrated fingerprint authentication. The 3.5-inch LTPS-type LCD display will be exhibited at EDEX 2003, a display exhibition in Tokyo that starts today.
