Video Brochures LCD Options
Video Brochures are still rather a new product, and the number of options for custom-printed and assembled Video Brochures adds to the confusion. The cost of Video Brochures greatly depends on the size of the screen and the quantity ordered. In several sizes, theVideoCards offers only one type of display (4HD, 4.3” TN, 5HD IPS).Our popular 7” LCD and the large 10.1” are offer two display options. The difference is in resolution and the quality of the rendered image. For example, for the 7” display, we offer 7” TN, and 7” HD IPS. What are the differences and when to consider an HD IPS display vs. TN display?
The default model of 7” LCD is Twisted Nematic (TN). The TN LCD is the fastest and cheapest display available. In a commercial setting, they are used in gaming monitors and gaming laptops. However, they offer a limited viewing angle and color.s Our 7″ Video Brochures TN LCD has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels.
The high quality LCD is IPS. IPS has the best color and viewing angle, but they are slower with a lower refresh rate. They are also more expensive than TN. Our IPS LCD has a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels.
WHEN SHOULD I USE THE TN DISPLAY OR THE IPS DISPLAY IN VIDEO BROCHURES?
In most cases, the TN display is adequate for the majority of Video Brochure projects. From the introduction of a new app, new company, or new processes, to an on-camera person inviting users to an event, the vast majority of users will find the TN display on the Video Brochure works great.
We recommend the IPS displays for projects that require the best image quality possible. With IPS displays having wide viewing angles, high resolution, and the best color representation, they are an especially good fit for photographers (including wedding photographers), architects, high-end real estate projects, or projects with nature/travel videos.
Of course, one of the considerations is the project budget. The price difference is higher at the low-end quantity (30-50) with a price variation of $4-$6 per brochure. With larger quantities, the difference falls to around $1 per brochure, which, in the big picture, may be a rather negligible difference.
