In MVA technology, the liquid crystal molecules are aligned vertically to the substrate surfaces.

MVA Technology for LC Displays

MVA (multidomain vertical alignment) technology is a type of VA technology. It was developed in 1966 by the Fujitsu company. In MVA displays, the starting direction of the LC molecules' switching behavior is defined in advance by protrusions. These protrusions are found on the boundary between the orientation layer and the liquid crystal layer. Each pixel consists of three sub-pixels, one for each of the primary colors, which can be mixed. In turn, each of these sub-pixels is divided into two or four further sub-pixels which define different switching directions. These sub-structures with different switching directions for the LCs improve the viewing angle dependence.
