LC-Tec Displays, based in Borlänge, Sweden have more than 20 years experience developing and manufacturing optical components based on liquid crystal (LC) technology and offer a product range including fast optical shutter (FOS), fast polarisation modulator (FPM) devices as well as variable/switchable optical Filters.
LC-Tec's premises in Borlänge house advanced electro-optical laboratories and a modern production facility which is augmented by very high volume manufacturing capacity in China.
LCT's mission is to provide LC-based products and related services that meet the unique needs and expectations of each customer. Their long experience and expertise means they are positioned to design, manufacture and distribute custom-designed LC solutions with superior performance to a global customer base.
In recent years LCT have had great success in the international cinema market with their PolarSpeed®-S dual-cell shutter which can be found in cinemas worldwide in the DepthQ® polarization modulator, exclusively sold and distributed for 3D projection applications by long-term partner Lightspeed Design, Inc. (US) - but available for other markets through AP Technologies!
LCT has also targeted the filter market using LC technology with a variable Neutral Density Filter designed for professional still and movie cameras. LCT's PolarView®-ND replaces multiple filters with a single device which can be switched between F2 and F12. The PolarView®-ND is designed for flat spectral response and low angular dependence.
A variable colour filter capable of sweeping the transmission band through the visible spectrum, or switching to specific wavelengths, is also being developed.
