Definitions for "Subpixel"
Keywords:  lcd, pixel, blue, green, shutter
Full-color displays are made by combining red, green, and blue light in varying degrees to produce different shades of colors. In a display with a fixed pixel structure, such as LCDs or plasma panels, the red, green, and blue light comes from adjacent cells in the display's physical structure. The light from these three subpixels--one for each color--combine to create a single pixel. There are also pixel structures that do not rely on three subpixels.
A red, blue, or green liquid crystal shutter. One subpixel of each color forms a pixel capable of displaying as many as 16.7 million colors.
A unit derived from a pixel by using a filter for sizing and positioning.
