"High-definition display systems" consisting of large-screen high-definition displays have been used widely in various fields. The reason for their popularity is that they are able to unify both high-resolution images and computer images.

The need for these systems in the current information-oriented society stems from the variety of information that is electronically filed in the form of computer data, video data, etc.

Networking is one of the fundamental technologies of the multimedia movement and is essential for overcoming distance, improving conversational performance, using data commonly, and transmitting information quickly.

With the coming of the information highway, the high performance and rich expression of fine image systems and the mobility of computer networks will fuse to create a heightened multimedia environment.
