Sharp equips LCD TVs with Moth-eye film
Sharp tackles screen reflection issues by equipping large LCD TVs with an anti-reflection film called Moth-Eye.
The Moth-Eye film consists of an uneven surface with regularly-arranged protrusions or tiny bumps that measures several hundred nanometers on its surface. As a result, light won’t bounce back off it and reflections don’t occur or are greatly reduced. However, the Moth-Eye’s strength can be an issue when applied to a large screen. To solve the problem, Sharp collaborated with Dai Nippon Printing Co. Ltd to make an adhesive that allows the Moth-Eye to be applied on large screens without any problem.
Although a Sharp TV with Moth-Eye is free from reflections, special maintenance should be carefully done. If you want to clean your TV’s display, Sharp suggests that you don’t use any cleaning products and use a damp towel instead.
