STURDIGLASS Video Wall
The all-new Sturdiglass option for Easy-4K video wall displays improves screen durability without compromising viewing experience. GPO Display uses the latest in optical bonding technology to affix high-grade, durable protective glass to the LCD surface. This ensures a strong, long-term bond that won’t “bubble” or peel, even in the most demanding of applications.
Sturdiglass is ideal for displays placed in high-traffic, public settings where there is a high risk of impact. Touch video walls also benefit from Sturdiglass technology, with none of the internal reflection or parallax error that comes with installing separate pieces of protective glass in front of LCD panels. Optical bonding also prevents dust and moisture buildup associated with separate protective glass.
When separate protective glass is used, there is a small gap between the LCD panel and protective glass. The gap and panel have different refractive indexes, causing the light to bend when it passes through them. This results in a loss in its intensity, affecting the screen’s readability.

When light from an external source passes through the panel and the gap, refraction causes some of it to be reflected back, creating glare on the screen. The increased light transmission of a screen with optical bonding significantly reduces glare from external light sources.
The additional resin layer in optical bonding also provides increased physical durability to the screen. Eliminating the gap between the LCD module and the panel increases the screen’s resistance to scratches, dust, and fluids.
For touch monitors, the panel thickness and distance between panel & glass influences touch accuracy. This can affect usability with both touch pens and bare hands. A touch monitor with optical bonding maintains consistently accurate touch response making it easy to use and reliable.
In environments with wide temperature ranges, it is common for condensation to cause screens to become foggy from moisture that penetrates the air gap. A monitor with optical bonding fills the gap to prevent condensation from occurring for improved readability.
