Exceptional viewability, even where high ambient light makes traditional LCDs impossible to read, is said to be provided by the Mitra series of low-profile, low-power displays. The key to the high readability is credited to four factors: Mitra's backlight; the way in which the lamps themselves are driven; the optical system within the backlight module; and the use of front-of-screen filters that are said to provide excellent contrast at a considerably lower power versus other products on the market. Other features expected to help make the sunlight-immune LCDs a strong contender for use in ATMs, public information kiosks, instrumentation, and other products include: "plug-and-play" compatibility, allowing simple set-up to an existing Sharp LCD panel; and uniformity of brightness, resulting in better viewability. Mitra displays range from 6.5" to 12.1" (later to 20.4") in size, span a VGA to 1280 x 1024 resolution range, have a brightness of 1700 cd/m2, and offer up to 16.8 million colors. Power consumption is 11W to 29W.
