3M is showing off some of its latest optical films that help products like notebooks, TVs, and handheld devices save power and improve performance. 3M displayed several films at FPD International including the new Vikuiti Dual Brightness Enhancement Film for LCD TVs. The film promises to reduce power consumption on LCD TVs up to 37% without affecting image quality.

The film increases brightness by recycling polarized light and it enhances viewing angles and uniformity. The film eliminates the need for a diffuser sheet as well. Other films include a similar brightness enhancement film for notebook displays that combines a reflective polarizer with a prism film that is only 225 microns thick.

“Power consumption has become an increasingly important issue in today’s electronic devices. Our FPD International exhibits leveraging Vikuiti optical films for notebooks, monitors, and TVs illustrate ways to enhance the energy efficiency of today’s electronic devices without sacrificing display performance,” noted Jim Bauman, vice president of 3M’s Optical Systems Division. “We continue to develop new innovations, such as the DBEF D3 300, our latest Vikuiti Dual Brightness Enhancement Film for LCD TVs that can reduce power consumption by up to 37% and our Vikuiti BEF-RP for notebooks, which has the ability to increase brightness by up to 44% and extend notebook battery life 14-17 minutes beyond that of a standard film stack.”
