READING, Pa. — American Polarizers Inc. offers Vikuiti brightness enhancement film from 3M Co., promoting power savings and thermal management in electronic displays.
A single sheet increases the brightness of backlit LCDs by up to 60 percent. Placing two sheets and right angles to one another results in a brightness increase up to 120 percent.
The films contain prismatic structures that refract the light output from a backlight. The prisms send the light back into the LCD, where it is then passed out again through the display toward the viewer, thereby compressing the light output to achieve brightness gain. The sheets reduce heat buildup helping to make devices safer and practical for a broader range of applications.
The films may be used to improve display brightness in a range of electronics including cellphones, notebooks, gaming stations, medical equipment, retail signature capture screens, kiosk displays and digital signage.
