  • Patent number: 7898510
    Abstract: A functional sheet is brought into intimate contact with a front surface of a plasma display panel, and the functional sheet has a structure in which heat diffusion is superior to heat insulation between the plasma display panel and outside air. In addition, a display device includes a controller for controlling a drive voltage pulse train so that power consumption in a unit area in a light emission region within the screen is limited under a set value when one image is displayed.

  • Publication number: 20100219750
    Abstract: A display panel device includes a front sheet that is glued on a front face of a plasma display panel. The front sheet includes a mesh made of a light shield member that has a blackened front surface and a plane size larger than a screen. A length between diagonal lattice points of the mesh is shorter than a cell pitch that is longer one of the cell pitches in the vertical direction and the horizontal direction of the screen. An arrangement direction of the mesh is inclined with respect to an arrangement direction of the cells in the screen.

  • Publication number: 20100201249
    Abstract: A plasma display panel in which projections are formed in grooves between partitions and phosphor layers are provided on the projections so as to increase the area where phosphor adheres and thereby to increase the luminance. A couple of substrates are opposed to each other to form a discharge space. Band-like partitions partitioning the discharge space are arranged on the back or front substrate. Wall-like projections lower than the partitions and high enough to increase the area where phosphor layers are formed are provided in the region where the discharge space is formed in the long grooves between the partitions or around the discharge space. Phosphor layers are formed in the grooves between the partitions including the wall-like projections. A method for producing such a plasma display panel is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 7531962
    Abstract: To maximize the efficiency of utilization of mother substrates used as material for the substrates in the flat display panel to form a display screen, the flat display panel includes a display screen formed by tetragonal first and second substrates. Four sides or opposite two sides forming a tetragonal peripheral edge of the first substrate are rendered to be substantially equal to those of the second substrate, and the first and second substrate are sandwiched together with one of the first and second substrates protruding in part outwardly from the peripheral edge of the other of the first and second substrates.

  • Patent number: 7126562
    Abstract: The present invention is characterized in that the PDP drive means makes correction so as to decrease the emission intensity of green or to increase the emission intensity of blue as the display load factor increases compared with the case when the display load factor is lower. Or, the PDP drive means makes correction so as to increase the emission intensity of green or to decrease the emission intensity of blue as the display load factor decreases compared with the case when the display load factor is higher. Such a correction is effective when the monochromatic emission luminance of the fluorescent substance has such a saturation characteristic that the decrease in green is greater than blue as the emission frequency increases. Therefore, when the saturation characteristic is the opposite in terms of the relationship between green and blue, the increase/decrease of the emission intensity in the above correction must be the opposite.

  • Patent number: 7071621
    Abstract: A plasma display panel is provided in which color temperature of the displayed color can be optimized while securing the gradation reproducibility and the stability of driving. The plasma display panel includes a screen in which a plurality of cells arranged in rows and columns emits light by electric discharge between a pair of main electrodes, and each pixel of matrix display has first, second and third cells having different light colors. At least one of the effective area of the main electrode, the thickness of the dielectric layer, the relative dielectric constant of the dielectric material, and the area of the light shield for the first cell is different from that of the second cell.
