World first for embedded transparent displays

AGC has developed the world’s first technology for embedding transparent displays into window glass. The advent of this technology will make it possible to display information superimposed over the view through the window.

It was in 2013 that AGC developed infoverre, a product with outstanding visibility and a design that appears to float in mid-air. Today, this product is being used as digital signage in buildings, airports, shopping centres and a variety of other locations. By combining multi-layered glass production technology with infoverre, the company has succeeded in embedding a transparent display into window glass. Using this technology, everyday windows are transformed into a platform for displaying all manner of information in real-time.

AGC has confirmed future plans to add touch-control and other interactive features that will allow users to obtain a variety of information from the windows.
