LCDs are all around us in everyday electronics and appliances. Our fiber optic backlighting technologies work well in the following LCD applications:
Our proprietary technologies offer many unique benefits to the LCD Industry:
Low-Profile - As thin as .2mm to reduce space needed.
Efficient - Bright, efficient and low power. We work with our customers to optimize the overall design to be power efficient and meet power requirements
Flexibility of Design
Uniformity - Uniform light across the entire display.
Easy Maintenance - Panels do not need replaced and light source is mounted away from the LCD allowing for easy replacement
We partner with engineering, marketing, and product design teams to develop an innovative and custom approach to their lighting needs. Companies that are the best fit to work with us in the area of LCD backlighting are:
OEM Electronics Manufacturers
Our surgical illuminators provide cool, shadowless light inside the surgical cavity. Our illuminators can be customized for disposable, single use, multi-functional devices. We also provide specialized OR suite lighting, MRI lighting and LCD lighting for portable medical equipment.

Molded light guides represent a very strong competition in higher volume LCD applications, but are usually not practical to tool up for low to medium volume custom backlights. Therefore, Lumitex’s Cut-2-Size™ Backlighting Kit was the perfect solution for this professional audio and video company’s low volume project. Requiring no tooling or non-recurring engineering charges, the Cut-2-Size™ kit includes thin, Clad Flat Fiber™ optical sheets and printed circuit boards. Using just a pair of scissors, the flexible polycarbonate optical sheets were easily cut to create a custom backlight in a matter of minutes. To quote their system designer "I don’t see this being the last time we purchase one of your kits!"
Key Reasons our Cut-2-Sixe™ Backlighting Kit was selected
A leading manufacturer of parking meters, contacted Lumitex to backlight an 4.4” display on their next generation, Parktel 2.0 parking meter. The Uniglo Fiber Optic Panel Technology was awarded the business due to improved uniformity compared to a Far East plastic molded light guide, which was standard with the 4.4” LCD display. The Uniglo Fiber Optic Panel Technology was also designed with one (1) fiber optic layer, which is .3302mm thick and also includes an enhancement process, called “lit to center”. The “Lit To Center” process with one LED on opposite ends of the backlight provides superior illumination, while consuming far less power compared to the (4) LED, plastic molded light guide.
