AGC Inc. – a Japanese glass, chemicals, and high-tech materials manufacturer – announced its newest anti-glare (AG) glass for 4K high-definition displays on December 13. AGC stated that the new AG glass lowers glare by around 30% more when compared to competitors while suppressing light reflection. The product will become available on the market in the first half of 2023, while AGC hopes for its adoption in notebook PCs and other 4K HD display-compatible devices.
AGC promised that AG glass reduces eye fatigue with the uneven surface to lessen reflections, applicable as display cover glass installed on PCs, tablets, and other products. AGC focused on satisfying all three optical elements when developing the product – anti-reflectiveness, image clarity, and random unevenness suppression. It emphasized the challenge of increasing display resolution and reducing optical interference together.
AGC has now developed a new AG glass with better uniform unevenness on the surface through its careful mechanical process. Before that, it struggled to reduce glare and preserve anti-reflective performance to compete with its traditional products. Still, it managed to cut the glass’s glare and eye fatigue risk when watching HD displays.
AGC will exhibit its new AG glass at AGC’s booth at CES 2023, one of the world’s leading technology and innovation trade fairs, in Las Vegas, U.S., on January 5-8, 2023.
