The field-sequential-color liquid crystal display (FSC-LCD) without a color filter enables high light efficiency, wide color gamut, and low material cost. However, the visual defect of color breakup (CBU) is perceived when relative velocities exist between the screen image and the human eye. We proposed the Stencil-FSC method with a 240-Hz field rate to make CBU imperceptible. Given the Stencil-FSC method, the hardware parameters were optimized to reduce hardware complexity while maintaining sufficient suppression of CBU. After implementing Stencil-FSC on a 32-in FSC-LCD, the image contrast ratio was shown to be ten times more than that of a conventional CCFL LCD, and the average power consumption was reduced to less than 35 W—a 67% savings in power consumption.
