Light Control Film “LC MAGIC”

Create a new space with the magic of light.

The liquid crystal light control film achieves "to show", "not to show" and "serve as a projection screen".

LC MAGIC is an ultra-thin liquid crystal film developed based on Toppan's liquid crystal technological achievements accumulated through our display-related businesses.
The flip of a switch can transform the film state from transparent to opaque, or vise versa.
This innovative product is used in a wide variety of applications, as an alternative to a blind or curtain or as a digital signage screen.

Our lineup is: Normal-Mode film that switches to transparent when power is turned on, and Reverse-Mode film that switches to transparent when power is turned off.

Features

Higher transparency

Higher transparency

Developed by focusing on the transparent property of the film.

The ultra thin film makes it easier to be applied to curved surface or existing glass.

The ultra thin film we manufacture eases the process of applying the film onto curved surface or existing glass.

Can be used as a projection screen.

Can be used as a projection screen.

As LC MAGIC is optically developed, the opaque state can display images with high quality and high definition, such as 4K.
Note: In addition to the conventional rear projection, front projection is available.

Ecology and energy efficient!

Ecology and energy efficient!

The transparent state is available without turning the system on. This is suitable for the environment where the transparent state is usually required.

Visible even when a power failure occurs!

Visible even when a power failure occurs!

As the state of the film is transparent in the event of a power failure, viewing field may be secured.

Principle

不透明
不透明時

The liquid crystals are aligned in a uniform direction, which let light pass, making the state of the film transparent.

透明
透明時

The liquid crystals are aligned differently, which scatters light, making the state of the film opaque.

Options·Components

We offer various options for each application to enhance the functionality.

Color variation

Multiple products in black with different tones are available. So, you can choose one suitable for your space.
Note: The width of the black type is 1,000mm.

Projection screen

As LC MAGIC is optically developed, the opaque state can display images with high quality and high definition, such as 4K.
Note: In addition to the conventional rear projection, front projection is available.

Rear projection

Front projection

Front projection is available with LC MAGIC, when there is not enough space to put the projection behind the screen.

Electrode

Example of use

LC MAGIC is used in various fields (offices, houses, commercial facilities, etc.).

It is possible to use LC MAGIC differently at the same location depending on the intended use or time (for security solutions, privacy protection, or as a projection screen).

For VIP or reception rooms

Depending on the contents of the meeting, it is possible to change the state between transparent and opaque with the flip of a switch.

For plant tour route

Depending on the nature of manufacturing, it is possible to control the state of the film between transparent and opaque, which can keep confidentiality from visitors as a security measure.

For medical facilities

LC MAGIC can be used for spaces in a medical facility (hospital, etc.) protected with privacy as needed. Sanitary product with simple and easy cleaning maintenance!

For hotel bathrooms

Can create a privacy environment with a sense of openness.

For building's external windows

Can select the state of clear and opaque depending on the weather.

As a digital signage screen

In addition to privacy protection usage, LC MAGIC can be used as a digital signage screen. High resolution image can be projected by utilizing the features of LC MAGIC.

Q&A

  • Q:What is the power consumption?

    • A:Approx. 5W/m2
  • Q:How long does the lead time take?

    • A:Approx. three weeks if in stock / Approx. two months if out
  • Q:Is it capable of protecting from UV?

    • A:Yes, the adhesive to absorb UV helps to cut 99.9% UV.
  • Q:How long is the warranty valid?

    • A:One year.
  • Q:How long is the actual usable life?

    • A:In the case of Normal white films, the standard design period when used in a normal office environment at 23°C is assumed to be 10 years.
  • Q:How big is the maximum size?

    • A:1.5m x 3.0m. If attaching on a bigger glass than 1.5m x 3.0m, multiple films to attach one sheet of glass in parallel are needed.

Showroom at Tokyo office

In our showroom located in our office at Shibaura, Minato-ku, Tokyo, you can see wide partitions, and doors showing movable parts actually and switch them by remote controller. In addition, there are gradation and segmented samples.

Makes gradation display possible

By changing the voltage, gradual and progressive display of different gradations between “transparent” and “opaque” is possible.

Allows for freedom and creativity in design

By making a proper electric design prior to modularization, LC MAGIC is freely processable into your ideal shape.
Wide range of color variation is possible, including black.

Electronic Blind (Segmented film)

“Electronic Blind” ,which allows for instantaneously switching the surface from transparent to opaque or vice versa.
