Transparent LCD Displays are the latest innovation in LCD technology, opening up a wide range of new opportunities in retail and marketing.

CDS have our own range of transparent displays manufactured for us, and as we control the manufacturing, we can not only offer more sizes than anyone else in the world, but also guarantee stable supply and long term availability.

The technology allows you to display information / promotions on the digital display, whilst allowing you to see through it.
The possibilities are endless, from placing in front of a product in store, and displaying promotional videos, to being used in front of artefacts at a museum showing facts relating to the object. We can even add touch interaction with multitouch sensors available for all our transparent displays.

Each transparent LCD is sold as a kit, and includes the display, media board, cables and power supply.
The media board has an on board media player, so you can upload your content via USB drive or the board has a HDMI port if you want to use your own PC / media player.
