On other equipment one electric charge accumulating layer is placed on the monitor panel. When we play, some of the burden to the individual passes. The computer can thus calculate where such reduction has occurred outlet. The advantage of this method is that it can transfer 90% of the monitor light, compared to 75% of the first and increases the visibility of the screen.
