Asahi Glass Company Limited Launches infoverre MIRROR Glass Product

Asahi Glass Company Limited has launched infoverre MIRROR, an interior glass product for residential and commercial facilities. The infoverre series is a new-generation glass signage that provides clear and vivid images to viewers.

The display monitor that is directly attached onto the mirror provides clear and vivid images as the light reflection and image blurring have been minimized. By combining with a motion sensor, infoverre MIRROR enables unique and interactive Communication Mirror has no fixed size. Display monitor has 21.5, 42, 46 and 55 inch types. (75 inch will be released by the end of 2015). infoverre has been developed as one of the company's glass signage product lines. It is a combination of glass and a large-sized display monitor, which is directly attached to the glass surface. Using the company's optical adhesive technology, the air layer between the glass and the LCD panel has been eliminated, which significantly enhanced the visibility and provides clear and vivid images through glass. infoverre is space saving as the monitor is supported entirely by the glass surface and a monitor mount is not necessary. In addition, no cooling fan helps lower electricity costs.
