ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--3M Electronics is showcasing its industry-leading electronics design optimization and assembly solutions for the consumer electronics industry during the 2015 International CES, taking place Jan. 6-9 in Las Vegas. If you’ve ever wondered how consumer electronics across so many brands have become much thinner, much brighter and much more energy efficient than in the past, look no further than 3M. The company today provided a closer look at how 3M enables consumer electronics companies to design with freedom by bridging consumer demands for more exceptional displays with maximized assembly processes.

Exhibiting at CES and demonstrating in its product showcase suites, 3M will show a wide array of integrated consumer electronics design solutions, ranging from privacy filters for smartphones, notebooks and monitors, interactive multi-touch solutions, and optical films for LCD-based electronics, to advanced bonding and assembly solutions.

Screen Privacy Prevents Visual Hacking

Visual hackers could be lurking anywhere. Sitting on a plane. Passing behind a workstation in an open floor plan office. With increased mobility and the new global office allowing confidential information to be accessed anytime, anywhere, visual hackers could be capturing data for unauthorized use leaving virtually no trace – making this stealth threat a dangerous one.

Exhibiting at CES (Booth# 35407), 3M Privacy Products allows anyone viewing a screen from a side angle to see a dark, blank screen while the user still sees a clear image thanks to a proprietary micro-louver technology from 3M. For an even more complete solution, the new 3M ePrivacy Filter software uses facial recognition technology to alert users to over-the-shoulder onlookers. When used together, 3M ePrivacy Filter software and a 3M Privacy Filter provide visual privacy from virtually every angle — up to 180º of privacy protection.

Also on display, 3M display enhancement films that increase the design freedom for automotive interiors by managing reflections and light distribution for improved driver and passenger viewability, increased thermal management and more open interior designs. And 3M also will demonstrate is latest multi-touch solutions for interactive digital signage applications, including a new 55-inch collaborative multi-touch display.
