FRC(Frame Rate Control) has been applied to the monitor and TV product as part of cost-saving in many flat panel display manufacturers. As FRC can represent the same number of gray scale level with bits of a smaller amount than bits of the input image data, it is widely used. However, FRC causes visual artifacts by using repeatedly pre-designed the FRC unit size of block pattern in display devices. Therefore, this paper analyzes the cause of the visual artifacts. And in order to improve them, it proposed the pattern arrangement of FRC unit blocks through frame rolling method as analytic solution for the first time. So, we could embody causes of FRC noise. Using the proposed structure, more robust pattern to FRC noise will be designed.
