Sunlight readable displays from 10.4-inch to 52-inch diagonal screen: Distribution agreement signed with Daewon Europa
In order to improve the readability in direct sunlight, Daewon Europa relies on a mechanical modification of the front and back polarizer. The results are transflective characteristics, an improved basic brightness and a wider viewing angle. The anti-reflective front glass with UV filter has however, two additional advantages: First of all, damage to the LCD layer is avoided and secondly, a clear readability is guaranteed.
The sunlight readable displays, which are available since 2006 under the brand name "SolarView" are currently available with diagonal screen sizes from 10.4-inch to 52 inch and resolutions from 800 x 600 pixels up to 1920 x 1080 pixels. As Kenneth Lee, General Manager of Daewon Europa, emphasized during signing the agreement with Gleichmann Electronics; the broad spectrum of display sizes reflects the constantly increasing demand on sunlight readable displays for different ranges of applications. "Easy to read displays, even with direct sunlight or bright ambient lighting, are gaining increasing importance in our visual society. We are all the more pleased to have found Gleichmann Electronics, a technically capable partner that can already look back on many years of experience in this field."
Gleichmann Electronics is also confident that the market for sunlight readable displays will further increase significantly within the next few years. According to Gerhard Becker, Daewon Europa Line Manager at Gleichmann Electronics, customer interest in the areas of high-end industrial applications, measuring instruments and public information displays (PIDs)is particularly strong.
"In recent years, we have continually enlarged our product portfolio for these markets. Thanks to the cooperation with Daewon Europa, we are now in a position to address the constantly increasing demand for sunlight readable displays, also with larger panels," says Gerhard Becker, pleased.
Daewon Europa guarantees availability of its displays for 18 months from the start of production. Data sheets and samples of the displays are immediately available from Gleichmann Electronics.
MSC Technologies GmbH
Founded in 1979, Gleichmann & Co. Electronics GmbH, in the same company group with MSC Vertriebs GmbH, has established itself as one of the leading pan-European distributors of electronic assemblies and components. One of the reasons for the high acceptance by customers and suppliers is the company's early focus on comparatively few, highly sophisticated products such as microcontrollers, programmable logic devices, displays and customer specific power supplies. From this, the resulting in-depth technical know-how of our sales engineers and field application engineers today enables us, if required by the customer, even implementation of complete new designs right up to the finished product. With two of its own ASIC design centers, the Gleichmann research laboratory in Austria and one of the largest and most modern programming centers in Europe, Gleichmann Electronics takes a leading role in terms of service and customer support.
