IR Band Filter protects LCDs from solar heat and radiation.

Press Release Summary:

Utilizing thin film coating, Infrared Blocking Hot Mirror protects outdoor-use LCDs from solar heat and radiation while also reducing their temperature. It reflects energy between 750-1,200 and works as cover glass to protect LCD display, effectively mitigating total IR energy directed at display during daylight hours. Thin film coating eliminates black-out that is common when viewing unprotected outdoor LCD under bright sunlight.

Abrisa Offers New Infrared Blocker to Enhance and Protect LCD Outdoor Displays

May 27, 2009 - Santa Paula, CA - Abrisa, a global leader in glass fabrication and thin film optical coatings, introduces an Infrared (IR) Blocking Hot Mirror to protect liquid crystal displays (LCDs) from solar heat and radiation. The new infrared band filters minimize the amount of harmful solar radiation and reduces the temperature in outdoor-use LCD applications. This advanced thin film coating protects the display screen and eliminates black-out that is common when viewing any unprotected outdoor LCD under bright sunlight.

Illuminators used in LCD systems are susceptible to high heat and light energy stress. Abrisa's IR Blocking Hot Mirror (that reflects energy between 750 nm and 1200 nm) works as a cover glass to protect the LCD display and effectively mitigates the total IR energy directed at the liquid crystal display during daylight hours, extending the life of the display.

Abrisa offers a variety of thin film IR band blocking filters to enhance functioning and protect outdoor liquid crystal displays. The anti-reflection coating for LCDs further improves performance and can be used in combination with the new IR Blocking Hot Mirrors. For more information, please visit:
