TFT- LCD is one type of dynamic matrix LCD. It is used in televisions, flat panel displays, projectors etc.

TFT-LCD has a sandwich like structure with liquid crystal packed between two glass plates. TFT glass has as lots of TFTs as the number of pixels displayed, while a colour filter glass has colour filter which generates colour. Liquid crystals move according to the variation in voltage between the colour filter glass and the TFT glass. The amount of light supplied by back light is resolute by the amount of movement of liquid crystals in such a way as to produce colour.
