LeTV Chooses Corning Iris Glass for its New Super TV Max 70
Corning Iris™ Glass is being used in Chinese company LeTV’s Super TV Max 70. Iris Glass reportedly forms the light-guide plate (LGP) for LeTV’s Super TV Max 70, a 70-in. television. The Iris Glass substrate is a key component for edge-lit technology because it distributes and directs light through the front of the TV, enabling vibrant pictures. Historically, display designers have used plastic light guide plates, which are highly susceptible to heat and humidity. This leads to thicker sets and wider bezels. Iris Glass reportedly eliminates design compromises by offering optically pure glass that is both dimensionally and thermally stable. This enables brands and designers to achieve significantly thinner sets and bezels than were previously attainable using plastic. The Super TV Max 70 is the first TV design in China to incorporate Iris Glass.
“Corning Iris Glass enabled our Super TV Max 70 to bring an exceptional viewing experience to the consumers without sacrificing size or thinness,” said Wang Zhi, product director. “We are excited to continue exploring new possibilities in collaboration with Corning.”
