Customized Display Elements «Coverlens»

The cover lens - also known as a cover glass or front glass - protects the display from scratches, dirt and UV radiation. The cover lens is bonded to the display. You can adjust many things with a cover lens. Most important are the size and thickness of the glass. But the hardness also plays a role, because no one likes to have scratches on the display.

What actually means “VA”?

A VA display (Vertical Aligement) consists of two linear polarizing filters rotated 90° to each other and some other stuff. Between the filters are two transparent electrodes (a pixel electrode and a common counter electrode). These usually consist of a glass plate with an ITO layer (indium tin oxide) applied. On top of this is the orientation layer. The elongated liquid crystals are embedded in between.
