Patent Number: 7,821,609

Title: Display device

Abstract: In a liquid crystal display device, each pixel region formed over a liquid crystal side of one substrate out of respective substrates which are arranged to face each other with liquid crystal therebetween includes pixel electrodes to which a video signal is supplied from a drain signal line through a switching element driven in response to a scanning signal from a gate signal line and capacitive elements which are formed between the pixel electrodes and a capacitive signal line by way of a dielectric film. In such a constitution, the pixel region is divided into a plurality of regions, and video signals are supplied to respective pixel electrodes and capacitive elements in respective regions through paths which are branched from the switching element.
