(Image: AGC)AGC Asahi Glass (Tokyo, Japan), which produces glass, chemicals, and other materials, has completed development of what it calls "infoverre SEE-THROUGH," a new product that consists of a liquid crystal display (LCD) that is directly laminated onto glass using resin and lamination technology developed by AGC. For use in commercial spaces, it overlays a transparent image in front of a display case behind it. The product is now available commercially. infoverre SEE-THROUGH uses a custom-designed light source to render a combination of reality and video images. Specifically, it delivers "vivid images coupled with high transparency (1.5x more vivid and 2x more transparent than existing products)," says AGC. The product is intended for use in showcases for stores, museums, and art galleries. AGC is planning to further broaden applications by developing versions with touch-panel capabilities that will allow users to interact with the glass to exchange information. AGC will exhibit and discuss these products at the upcoming Digital Signage Japan 2018, scheduled to be held from Wednesday June 13 to Friday June 15, 2018 at Makuhari Messe.
