Corning will be present at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 2 as a key feature of the company’s exhibit.
At the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Corning Incorporated will showcase the critical role of highly engineered speciality glass in addressing emerging trends. These will include: increased functionality from smaller form factors; touch technology; connected devices in new application spaces; and sleek, durable large-format design aesthetics.
“As we did last year, we’ll provide consumers and customers visiting the Corning booth the opportunity to test first-hand the outstanding damage resistance and flexibility of this industry-leading, ultra-thin, and tough speciality glass.”
The introduction of Corning® Gorilla® Glass 2, the next generation of the popular, damage-resistant cover glass for consumer electronic devices, will be a key feature of Corning’s CES exhibit.
“Corning Gorilla Glass has been a tremendous success for Corning, enjoying excellent market acceptance across mobile device industries. Handset and tablet device manufacturers are clearly driving toward higher functionality from thinner designs. Corning’s latest innovation in Gorilla Glass technology is very well positioned to meet these challenges and enable broader touch technology penetration,” said James R. Steiner, senior vice president and general manager, Corning Specialty Materials.
“As we did last year, we’ll provide consumers and customers visiting the Corning booth the opportunity to test first-hand the outstanding damage resistance and flexibility of this industry-leading, ultra-thin, and tough speciality glass,” Steiner added.
The Corning booth will also explore the benefits of Corning Gorilla Glass in larger format, touch displays for education, entertainment, auto, and home appliance applications featuring new design possibilities. Items on show include:
• an 82-inch advanced multi-touch LCD display prototype featuring Corning Gorilla Glass as a durable, touch-sensitive, and elegant cover glass;
• touch-enabled automobile interior and home appliance centre simulators demonstrating the enhanced user interface experience that thin, durable glass can enable in new design applications;
• a centrepiece, Gorilla Glass-covered video wall, with Gorilla Glass fabricated sound speakers, projecting the latest in Corning speciality glass technology news.
Dr. Peter Bocko, Corning’s chief technology officer for Corning Glass Technologies and one of the foremost glass experts in the display industry, will be a panellist in the “Beyond the Flat Screen” session on Thursday, 12 January at 1:30 p.m. PST.
