News editors obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "One or more exemplary embodiments relate to a multi-display apparatus for implementing a screen by interconnecting a plurality of display panels, and more particularly, to a folding type multi-display apparatus.
"In general, a multi-display apparatus creates a single large screen by interconnecting a plurality of display panels. For example, a large screen may be made by interconnecting a plurality of Braun tubes (also called cathode ray tubes 'CRTs'), such as large-scale televisions (TVs), for display purposes.
"Such a multi-display apparatus is typically made by interconnecting unit panels, e.g., individual displays, in a row. That is, a plurality of unit panels is prepared and then a multi-screen in which the unit panels are interconnected in a row is created. However, when the unit panels are interconnected in this way, a natural continuous image cannot be displayed and the image can be seriously disconnected between the unit panels due to areas between the unit panels which are typically occupied by the housings of the displays. Also, image disconnection can occur between the unit panels when the multi-screen is not viewed from a normal direction of the unit panels."
As a supplement to the background information on this patent, VerticalNews correspondents also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "One or more exemplary embodiments include a multi-display apparatus capable of implementing a natural image by preventing image disconnection between display panels.
"Additional aspects will be set forth in part in the description which follows and, in part, will be apparent from the description, or may be learned by practice of the exemplary embodiments.
"To achieve the above and/or other aspects, one or more exemplary embodiments may include a multi-display apparatus including; a first display panel including a first display device, and a second display panel including a second display device, wherein pixels of the first display panel are vertically aligned with pixels of the second display panel in an area where the first display panel and the second display panel overlap.
"In one exemplary embodiment, a length of an overlapping portion where the pixels of the first display panel are vertically aligned with the pixels of the second display panel may be determined based on a distance between the first display device and the second display device, and based on a viewing angle which is substantially normal to at least one of the first display panel and the second display panel.
"In one exemplary embodiment, the length of the overlapping portion may be determined according to Equation 1: l=d.times.tan(.theta.) (Equation 1)
