3M Showcases Latest Energy Efficient Optical Films for LCD TVs

3M-Vikuiti-Film-for-LCD-TVBuilding upon its portfolio of Vikuiti™ Optical Film solutions, 3M’s Optical Systems Division today unveiled its latest optical film solution for LCD TVs—the Vikuiti DBEF D3-260—which is optimized for LCD TVs below 40-inches. Vikuiti Dual Brightness Enhancement Films (DBEF) offer substantial energy savings of up to 32%, without sacrificing performance or image quality. This latest addition to the company’s Vikuiti DBEF D3 series increases brightness by recycling polarized light, and also enhances display viewing angle and uniformity. The Vikuiti DBEF D3-260 also works well with prism films.

“The launch of this new Vikuiti film signals 3M’s continued investment in its R&D efforts to expand our optical film portfolio and provide cost-effective solutions that address the growing demand for low power TVs, without sacrificing performance demands,” noted Jim Bauman, vice president of 3M’s Optical Systems Division. “3M continues to develop new products that meet today’s demand for improved LCD TV image quality and energy efficiency.”
