Irregular Color Filter Array for Liquid Crystal Displays

       Disclosed is a method of arranging individual color
filters in a liquid crystal display that will improve ergonomic
performance.

      The usual arrangements of color filters for this purpose are
shown in Fig. 1.  The ergonomic concern with this and similar
arrangements is that the separation of individual color filters is
too large (e.g., red-red).

      The arrangement disclosed in Fig. 2 improves this situation as
the separation of individual color filters is reduced.  This reduced
separation improves the color performance of the display resulting in
improved ergonomics. Also, in active matrix drive displays, the
active element can be distributed as shown, which also tends to
improve ergonomics.
