Corning Glass Featured in CES Award-Winning Dell Monitor
Corning’s light-guide plate technology reportedly helps enable the Dell 27 USB-C Ultrathin Monitor to be thin from every angle, with its slimmest profile at 5.5 mm.
Corning Inc. recently announced that its Corning Iris™ Glass light-guide plate is featured in the CES Innovation Award-winning Dell 27 USB-C Ultrathin Monitor (S2719DC). The annual CES Innovation Awards honor outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products.
Corning’s light-guide plate technology reportedly helps enable the Dell 27 USB-C Ultrathin Monitor to be thin from every angle, with its slimmest profile at 5.5 mm. It is also the world’s brightest ultrathin monitor in its class, according to an April 2018 Dell internal analysis comparing brightness (cd/m2) on competitive monitors. It has a peak brightness of up to 600 nits and VESA-certified DisplayHDR 600.
“Corning is delighted to support Dell’s strategy of continuing to bring the latest innovations to the industry, and we congratulate them for earning this well-deserved recognition,” said Andrew Beck, director, Iris Glass program. “This award is proof that sleek design with a bright, fully immersive viewing experience is what consumers want. It is truly a beautiful monitor, and we are thrilled that our light-guide plate technology helped make this happen.”
A light-guide plate (LGP) is used in edge-lit LCD displays to evenly distribute light and deliver crisp, brilliant images. Using a high-purity glass substrate such as Iris Glass allows set designers more freedom by eliminating air gaps and extra materials needed to accommodate the warp and expansion that typically happens with plastic, the incumbent LGP material.
