  • Patent number: 7068252
    Abstract: A display unit includes an organic electroluminescence device having light-emitting regions, and a liquid crystal panel having pixels. The liquid crystal panel is spaced apart from the organic electroluminescence device so that the light of each light-emitting region illuminates at least two pixels. An image signal output section provides data of a first image to first pixels of the liquid crystal panel and provides data of a second image to second pixels of the liquid crystal panel. The image signal output section switches the display of the first image and the display of the second image in synchronization with a switching of the emitting of the light-emitting region and non-emitting of another light-emitting region of the organic electroluminescence device by the light-emission control section.
