Multifunction films: high brightness, power efficiency

3M's optical systems division has unveiled the Vikuiti Brightness Enhancement Film—Reflective Polarizer (MNT BEF-RP-230), claimed to be the first multifunction film for monitors.
Delivering superior performance that's similar to that of two separate prismatic enhancement and reflective polarizer films, Vikuiti Monitor BEF-RP combines angular light management with polarization recycling in a single package only 230µm thick. It provides uncompromised visual quality, while achieving maximum power efficiency and high display brightness in one convenient package.
By combining the films, energy consumption in monitors can be reduced by up to 30 percent compared to prism-only solutions, without sacrificing display visual quality or brightness. Moreover, Vikuiti Monitor BEF-RP-230 provides additional assembly efficiencies and waste reduction in monitors that are already using separate prismatic and reflective polarizer solutions.

"Today's monitor manufacturers continue to face the challenge of increasing energy efficiency and ergonomics for monitors, while at the same time decreasing the number of components and minimizing costs," noted Jim Bauman, VP of 3M's optical systems division. "Our Vikuiti Monitor BEF-RP tackles these challenges head on."
3M's Vikuiti Monitor BEF-RP-230 will debut at SID's Display Week on May 31-June 4 in San Antonio, Texas.
