LCD Backlighting Solutions

Thin, Low-Profile Backlights in Custom Shapes, Sizes, and Configurations.

In order for Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs) to display a message (like the one you are reading on this screen), visible ambient light must be present. LCDs do not supply light on their own and a backlight needs to be added. Having the right light to adequately backlight an LCD is important so the display message can be read accurately.


LCDs are all around us in everyday electronics and appliances. Our fiber optic backlighting technologies work well in the following LCD applications:

  • Audio Systems
  • Electronic Device Displays
  • Wearable Devices
  • Marine Displays
  • Automotive Displays

Why our Technology is Ideal for LCD Backlighting

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

  • Adaptable to a variety of sizes, shapes and colors in a very thin format 
  • Flexible materials can conform to various contours 

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
