UCIC Technology

Transparent LCD Displays

Planar® Ultimate Color Illumination and Contrast™ (UCIC™) technology uses a combination of techniques to create enhanced transparent displays that deliver a amazing color, contrast, and transparency. 

Your brand color matters.  That is why Planar developed UCIC technology for Planar® LookThru™ Series transparent LCD displays. With a combination of technology and techniques, Planar UCIC technology provides maximum transparency without giving up contrast or color.  

Planar UCIC is composed of three core components:

LCD Selection

Planar transparent LCDs are carefully selected to provide the best level of transparency while still delivering high quality content.  Planar LookThru Series displays are designed to deliver superior chromaticity, contrast, and a symmetrical and wide viewing angle.

* Black is black
* Superior transparency
* Reduced image diffraction of product inside Planar LookThru displays

Lighting System

Lighting is a critical component of an effective transparent LCD display. Since the LCD themselves don't give off light, a poorly implemented lighting system will make the digital content look dark or colors will appear saturated. Planar LookThru displays feature optimized lighting around luminas efficiency, thermal management and color temperature.  

* Great color
* Brilliant long-lasting display
* Superior balance of light output and energy use

The ERO Advantage

Planar® ERO™ (Extended Ruggedness and Optics™) technology utilizes a proprietary bonded front glass and smooth touch surface process to create a highly durable display that can withstand the rigors of high-traffic environments and accommodate touch screen usage in interactive applications. Planar ERO also improves perceived contrast by more than 300%, giving viewers the highest quality visual experience, making it more readable and impactful even in bright public venues.

* Improves contrast by eliminating mismatched reflective layers
* Optical coatings diffuses reflections
* Protects the LCD
* Touch sensor ready
