Vision Systems integrates info displays into dimmable windows

Thanks to industry leader Vision Systems, SPD-Smart electronically dimmable windows (EDWs) offer a new dimension of passenger experience improvement by integrating a transparent color video touchscreen into an SPD-Smart electronically dimmable aircraft window, the company said.

The new window can be controlled by the passenger through a transparent color video touchscreen on the window, or by the crew through the flight attendant panel.

The benefit for passengers is to regulate light and heat, reduce noise inside the cabin, and for them to be able to interact with the moving map, applications, and to get more services, directly on the window.

Airlines can build their brand and their image by offering creative tailored uses of this new interactive passenger amenity, and could also maximize revenues as a result of the increased value of window seats.

Headquartered near Lyon, France for more than 80 years, with a production unit in Florida, USA, Vision Systems specializes in three activities: Aeronautics, Automotive and Marine.

Research Frontiers (NASDAQ: REFR) is the developer of SPD-Smart light-control technology which allows users to instantly, precisely and uniformly control the shading of glass or plastic, either manually or automatically.
