Night reading 4K monochrome LCD display

I had a spare transparent monochrome LCD from the darkroom print project. It’s been quite a long time I’d like to use it to make a monochrome reading display.

I recycled an old laptop display backlight, and exchanged the LEDs by orange ones. Even warm white LEDs have a blue component on their light spectrum (left). I choose bright orange LEDs with a more narrow spectrum (right, Topled KY DELPS1.22-UGVI-36-J3S5).

I Printed a stand with room for the hdmi input board.

Pixel density is rather high, but with the right and large font settings, the texts are sharp and pleasant to read.
