In cursul zilei de astazi compania Corning a prezentat oficial Lotus™ XT Glass, un nou produs care are menirea de a proteja ecranele smartphone-urilor si tabletelor care urmeaza sa fie lansate in viitorul nu foarte indepartat pe piata. Fara a spune cum se comporta produsul in comparatie cu Gorilla Glass 3, cei dela Corninc sustin ca producatorii de terminale mobile pot utiliza aceasta sticla in viitoarele smartphone-uri si tablete cu ecrane HD/Full HD, iar Apple este una dintre companiile care ar putea implementa Lotus™ XT Glass.
La Corning Lotus™ XT Glass accentul este pus pe oferirea de imagini de calitate inalta pe ecrane OLED, LTPS, TFR sau LCD, deci utilizatorii ar trebui sa vada informatiile cat se poate de clar si sa fie siguri ca terminalele lor sunt protejate fara probleme. Corning nu a specificat daca Apple va utiliza noua sa tehnologie, compania din Cupertino a implementat-o in iDevice-uri de ani de zile, insa oficial nu vom sti vreodata ce versiune a produselor Corning regasim in produsele Apple.
CORNING, N.Y., May 16, 2013 – Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today announced the commercial launch of Corning Lotus™ XT Glass, a second-generation glass substrate specially formulated for high-performance displays. The company will feature its latest specialty glass innovation – alongside its other advanced glass technologies – in its booth (#801) at the Society for Information Display’s (SID) Display Week in Vancouver, British Columbia, May 21 – 23.
Lotus XT Glass features best-in-class total pitch variation, which is integral to efficient panel manufacturing. Essentially, total pitch – usually measured in microns or parts per million (ppm) – is the distance features move during panel processing.
“If you can predict the amount the glass shifts, then you can account for this movement. Deviation – or variation – from this predictable movement can ultimately result in yield loss,” said John P. Bayne, vice president and general manager, Corning High Performance Displays. “Lotus XT Glass is designed to have improved thermal and dimensional stability over higher temperatures, generating higher yields for our customers.”
The Corning Lotus Glass platform enables organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays and liquid crystal displays (LCD) that use either low-temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) or oxide thin-film transistor (TFT) backplanes. The result is an energy-efficient, immersive display device that features high resolution, fast response times, and bright picture quality.
In addition to Lotus XT Glass, the Corning booth will feature each of its advanced glass technologies, including: Corning EAGLE XG® Slim for a-Si displays; Corning® Willow™ Glass, the company’s ultra-slim, flexible glass; and Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance™. Corning experts will provide daily demonstrations of Gorilla Glass 3, the industry-leading, damage-resistant cover glass. Attendees should consult booth staff for exact times.
Display Week attendees will also have the opportunity to hear several of Corning’s technology experts deliver presentations at the conference.
“Display Week is a time to take stock of the industry and its future,” Bayne noted. “The industry is changing, and Corning believes each of its innovative glasses helps solve tough technological challenges – advancing displays even further.”
