The LCD panel used in the LCD projector consists of hundreds of thousands of fine pixels.
Like other video display devices, the LCD panel may contain bad pixels which do not operate. When
shipping a product, the conditions for identifying bad pixels and the number of bad pixels that a LCD
panel is allowed to contain are strictly managed in accordance with the relevant specified standards
by the LCD panel manufacturer and our company. Though a screen may have some dead pixels, this
does not affect the overall screen quality and the lifetime of the product.
