Transparent display is the next generation display technology that is also known as See-through display. Transparent display technology has revolutionized the display marketer’s by making it promising to display dynamic or interactive information on a transparent glass surface. Due to its unique transparent display, it gives a good advertising and artistic effect. Earlier to project an image on a transparent display, mirrors or beam-splitter were used. To capture the projected image, user’s eyes have to be in the exact position in order to see the image otherwise it would appear as projected image is hovering in space somewhere. The revolutionary display allows users not only to display images, but also text and video content onto physical objects. The use of cutting edge organic light emitting diode (OLED) eradicates the need of backlight, making it possible to create a see through display in a frameless glass design. This new transparent display enables the user to see images from a wide variety of angles. Transparent displays have outstanding advantages over traditional displays. It provides high transparence keeping in mind the interior organic illumination and viewing. Further, transparent displays have high contrast ratio, high speed response and high transmittance. The PC motherboards are light in weight and requires very less space, merely about 10mm thickness, thus reducing the unconstructive impact on the look of the construction. Transparent displays are easy to install and it consumes less power. Transparent displays provide a wide application in hotels, landmarks, corporate office, theatre, retail store, nightclubs & bars, jewellary stores, hair & beauty salons, shopping avenues and so on.
