Illumination & Displays

Frameless display panels


JDSU announced that it has created new frameless display panels using a combination of its low-reflection optical coating technology and custom display manufacturing processes. The result are panels with a sleek designer look for use in public venues, including kiosks at restaurants and train stations, and for airplane cockpit displays, medical displays and many other uses such as for military applications.

The frameless aspect of the display panels is created by a custom machining process that removes traditional fixture marks left on the glass surface after the coating process. A special black border effect can be integrated onto the display through a "black fritting" process that heats ink onto the glass until it turns into ceramic.

Custom slots, special edges, corners or other features can also be tailored into the display for an exact fit. For example, a designer panel for an LCD display could include a slot that allows screen controls from the display to show through - that can be touched at the same layer as the glass display.

Display manufacturers can choose from a variety of industry-leading optical coating technologies from JDSU that provide clarity and durability to the designer panels.
