text looks as sharp as it does on a printed page, and users can now see high-resolution photos with pixel-for-pixel detail. the display on the 27-inch desktop computer has been engineered for performance, power efficiency and visual quality. the newest member of the mac family uses a precisely manufactured oxide TFT-based panel to deliver vivid display brightness from corner to corner. apple took huge leaps in the design of the 27 inch model; from reengineering the brains of the display to maintaining 1/100th of a micron tolerances within the display cell.

a single supercharged apple-designed timing controller (TCON), with four times the bandwidth as the previous model, drives all 14.7 million pixels powering the display. the screen also uses highly efficient LEDs and organic passivation to improve image quality and reduce display power consumption by 30 percent, even while driving 400% more pixels at the same brightness. to improve the contrast ratio, the iMac uses a new photo alignment process and a compensation film to deliver blacker blacks and more vibrant colors from any viewing angle.
