Abstract

The type and extent of reflections from the viewing surface of a data display terminal' such as a Plasma display device, is important to its ease of use. Specular reflection from the front surface of the display glass can produce glare, which interferes with the ability of an observer to see the desired data images. One of the solutions to this problem is an anti-glare surface on the front of the display, which may be accomplished by abrading the glass surface, scattering surface reflections and rendering the reflections less objectionable.
