American Computer Optics is a leader in optical coated glass technology. Founded in 1985, we began as a manufacturer of computer glare screens. Our technology offering today includes a variety of optically coated glass for computer systems enclosures, shipboard instrumentation, conductive coated glass for touch screens, tempered anti-reflective glass for LCD’s and plasma displays, display cases, water white glass for digital movie projection ports, and beamsplitters.
Maintaining its edge as a leader in design, manufacturing and innovation of new optical technology, the company constantly develops products to the highest rated standards. Today, we offer anti-reflective coatings to enhance viewing in every possible situation. When coupled with our high quality tempering process, our coated glass conforms to all standards for military ruggedized equipment manufacturers and VARs.
We partner with our customers to create products that fit specific needs. In many instances, our product developments lead to multiple product upgrades within a customer's offering. For instance, a conductive coating can co-exist with our anti-reflective coating. This can facilitate the addition of touch screen capability to ruggedized equipment.
The American Computer Optics product line has been the standard choice of technology-aware users throughout the world to solve lighting, clarity and eye comfort issues in technology use.
WE ARE THE NO. 1 SERVICE PROVIDER FOR 30 YEARS.
Our most satisfying success as a manufacturer has been in creating products for customer's unique needs and specs for their displays. In either outdoor or underwater, we have developed products for many harsh environments that need ruggedized displays to prevent breakage.
Our A/R coatings provide extra hardness on both sides of glass for your display needs. 30%transmission, 50% transmission, and 70% transmission are available in custom and stock sizes.
Our tempering process creates glass that is 3 to 5 times stronger than ordinary glass, and our cost competitiveness makes tempered glass from Optical Coatings is the perfect choice for outdoor, underwater or other environments where ruggedized displays are essential in minimizing damage and breakage.
We supply to manufacturers that require ruggedization on touch control displays, kiosks, and public access info centers for outdoor applications, and ship board navigation systems, underwater or water surface displays, and underwater enclosures, in specifications of very small to very large sizes.
Our port window glass is called Water White. The transmission rate is between 98% and 99%. The glass transmits 99% < 3mm thick, 98% > 6mm a thick of the visible spectrum. For more details on the specs see our Water White glass page.
This glass is ideal for use in theater projection rooms, in what are called port windows. The dual A/R Coating increases the transmissivity to provide true color through the glass. This is the highest clarity port window glass, with no coloration. The port glass in the projection room is nearly invisible.
Regular glass absorbs the colors and brightness of projected light, thus dulling the screen image. American Computer Optics's specially coated glass transmits more light onto the projection screen.
Movies are seen the way the Director and Cinematographer intended - with brighter, truer colors.
Our high transmission, two-sided anti-reflective coated clear glass is suitable for use in motion picture projection room construction. Our glass is especially suitable for multiple projectors, such as those in IMAX theaters, where every bit of light transmission is critical.
LCD FLAT PANELS
The inherent dullness of LCD displays makes it difficult, if not impossible, for users to view the display without eyestrain. In addition, unprotected displays are vulnerable to rupture, cracking and breakage. Traditional plexi-glass does little to protect these costly components, and is itself vulnerable to scratches, pitting and other damage.
We use antireflective coated glass with high transmissivity to increase light transmission while cutting down on glare and reflection. This creates a clearer, sharper view of the LCD display compared to standard plexiglas.
Our optical coatings absorb excess light and protect against screen deterioration from outside exposure.
You get the benefit of a very sophisticated antireflective glass (similar to a camera lens) that is rugged enough to stand up to the toughest conditions, making it the perfect "invisible shield" for public access kiosks, CRT, ATM and touch screen applications.
Superior Contrast Enhancement/Reflection Control is achieved through proprietary thin film layers that eliminate glare and provide nearly invisible, reflection-free viewing.
More Durable Surface is less prone to scratching, breakage and other damage compared to regular glass.
Permanent Hydrophobic Coating repels all water and moisture, resists smears, and makes the glass easy to clean. We are a supplier to OEM manufacturers for inside the screen bezel display protection. Using tempered glass with anti-glare coatings, the display membranes on LCD flat panels are protected from impacts, gashes and fingering.
A beamsplitter, often called a half-mirror or one-way glass, is an optical window with a semitransparent coating that reflects some of the light and transmits the balance. While most beamsplitters utilize a single layer of MgF, our beamsplitters use a patented 3-layer process that reduces one-side reflection to less than 0.5%. In addition, our unique process enables us to coat large substrates suitable for architectural applications.
Split beam glass has been used by our customers in unique display situations where a mirrored effect is required on the display when the power is turned off. This split beam mirroring effect does not interfere with the transmission of light through the display when the display is powered.
This optical coating is applied to 98% transmission glass and can be applied to tempered/non-tempered glass and used in conjunction with our hydrophobic coating.
We have created solutions to meet the need of shipboard transports, to enhance viewing in day and night, and protect from salt spray. Included in these solutions has been developments of specialized glass for vehicle information systems, ruggedized displays and enhanced visibility.
We have also developed solutions that reduce glare caused by display screens that interfere with night-time viewing through vehicle windows.
It is important to note that use of hand held devices is growing at staggering pace. These devices are with LCD displays that are hard on the eyes in outdoor environments.
