  • ALCF
    A microlouver film that controls the distribution of light. ALCF can be used to create privacy, control reflections or improve display contrast.

  • BEF
    BEF is a prismatic film that manages the angular output of light from the backlight. BEF uses refraction to compress the backlights output towards an on-axis viewer.

  • DBEF
    DBEF is a multilayer, reflective polarizer. DBEF polarizes the backlights output so that it can transmit through the liquid crystal panel. Light of the wrong polarization is recycled into the backlight.
