White Electronic Designs Corp. (WEDC) disclosed that its Max-Vu technology will be integrated into HP's "Enhanced Outdoor-Viewable Display" option for the HP Compaq tc4200 Tablet PC. The Max-Vu technology offers optimized contrast and viewing of Active-Matrix Liquid-Crystal Displays (AMLCD). WEDC explained that the Max-Vu process was achieved by bonding an optically matched window directly to the AMLCD using specifically formulated silicone. The window is optically coupled to the display resulting in increased optical performance.

"WEDC's proprietary Max-Vu process improves the optical performance of tablet PCs in outdoor and high ambient lighting applications where they otherwise could not be viewed as easily," shared Bob Ritter, WEDC VP for strategic development. "Furthermore, Max-Vu provides added robustness to the display."

The Max-Vu technology provides HP Compaq tc4200 Tablet PC users who choose the "Enhanced Outdoor-Viewable Display" option with a 200 percent increase in contrast ratio in high ambient lighting conditions, 85 percent decrease in reflections in high ambient lighting conditions and significantly improved display readability. According to WEDC, users will enjoy improved viewing at wider angles in virtually any low-light or bright-light environment.

"The Enhanced Outdoor Viewable Display on the HP Compaq tc4200 opens the door to greater productivity, giving mobile professionals the flexibility to work virtually anytime and anywhere," commented Carol Hess-Nickels, director of commercial notebook marketing at HP.
