Compared with the design of currently available standard components, the newly designed system components are not only thin, but also achieve high luminance and wide viewing angles.
These components are mainly composed of a Light Guide Plate (LGP), a reflector, and a prism that refracts light. DNP has improved brightness by adjusting the prism arrangement (the convex portion of the triangle) .
Also, in answer to the challenge of narrow viewing angles due to the positioning of the prism, we improved light utilization efficiency by devising an LGP and a reflector. We then achieved both high luminance and a wide viewing angle by optimizing the prism shape design. Offering these newly designed system components makes it possible to both cut parts numbers and reduce power consumption, as well as contribute to reducing the environmental burden via lower CO2 emissions. We have also achieved a thinner product.
[Features of Newly Designed System Components]
- Achieve high luminance and wide viewing angle, along with a thin backlight
- Low power consumption
- Contributing to reduced CO2 emissions
DNP will provide the components to panel manufacturers that manufacture various displays, including those for notebook computers. We aim to achieve sales, including those from related components, of approximately 2.0 billion yen by FY 2025.
The DNP Group will exhibit the system components in SID Display Week 2023.
DNP was established in 1876, and has become a leading global company that leverages print-based solutions and the strengths of its growing number of partners to engineer fresh business opportunities while protecting the environment and creating a more vibrant world for all. We capitalize on core competencies in microfabrication and precision coating technology to provide products for the display, electronic device, and optical film markets. We have also developed new products, such as vapor chamber and reflect array that offer next-generation communication solutions for more people-friendly information society.

New Post Hoc Analysis from MAVORIC Trial Sheds Light on the Burden of Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma on Health-Related Quality of Life11.12.2023 15:00:00 CET | Press release
Kyowa Kirin International (KKI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Kyowa Kirin Co. Ltd, today announced health-related quality of life (HRQL) findings from a post hoc analysis of the MAVORIC trial in patients with mycosis fungoides (MF) or Sézary syndrome (SS), two subtypes of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). Researchers analysed baseline data collected prior to initiation of study treatment and found the symptoms of advanced MF/SS affected HRQL across all domains, with poorer HRQL associated with being younger in age, female, having moderate or severe itching, and impaired function as measured by the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status (ECOG PS). “CTCL is a chronic, life-long condition. Understanding how symptoms impact an individual physically, emotionally as well as in their daily life is critical,” said Susan Thornton, Chief Executive Officer, Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation and one of the study authors. “The data provide new insights into the burdens of living with CTC
