Optically bonded displays enhance outdoor readability

Optically bonded displays enhance outdoor readability
TFT displays, suitable for outdoor environments, have been released by GTK. For enhanced readability in outdoor environments, the displays feature optical bonding. During the production process, an optical bonding adhesive is used to fix a protective, glass cover lens to the front of a display. Through this process, the contrast ratio is enhanced which is useful when there is bright sunlight or high humidity.
