AGC Combines Reality with Images Sales Launch for 'infoverreSEE-THROUGH'

Tokyo, April 24, 2018–AGC Asahi Glass (AGC), a world-leading manufacturer of glass, chemicals and high-tech materials, announces that it has completed development of 'infoverreSEE-THROUGH', a new product that successfully achieves a combination of reality and images. Sales of the new product were launched today.

infoverre is a glass signage product consisting of an LCD display that is directly laminated onto glass using special resin and lamination technology developed by AGC. Meanwhile, infoverreSEE-THROUGH uses a uniquely designed light source to render a combination of reality and video images in ways never before possible with existing infoverre products. Specifically, it delivers extraordinarily vivid images coupled with high transparency (1.5x more vivid, 2x more transparent than existing products).

This product is well-suited for use in showcases, including all manner of stores, museums, and art galleries. AGC is also planning to further broaden applications by developing versions with touch panel capabilities that will allow users to interact with the glass to exchange information.

Under its AGC plus management policy, the AGC Group has made a commitment to create products that add various pluses for stakeholders.
