This paper discusses modern principles of constructing displays based on liquid crystals, which provide high-contrast images at large viewing angles. The characteristics of displays based on the twist and supertwist effects and the transverse electric-field effect are considered, along with optical compensator films and multidomain vertically oriented structures. Displays with controllable field-of-view angles are described.
