The development of active-matrix liquid crystal displays (AMLCDs) to overcome the limitations of passive LCDs is reviewed. The decision of video graphics adapter (VGA) versions of these displays, the market for these displays, and the companies involved in producing them are discussed. Two alternatives to AMLCDs, one involving a method for driving passive LCDs that would give them most of the benefits of active-matrix displays and the other involving standard passive-matrix color LCDs, are also discussed. The possibility of transferring LCD technology to the high-definition television (HDTV) market and the most likely candidate for that market, plasma display panels (PDPs), are examined.<>
