The company set new standards with its third-generation (3G) switchable glass/film, breaking over three decades of limitations on smart glass for outdoor applications by developing a liquid crystal-based technology known as 3G Switchable Film™. The 3G Switchable Film™ provides reliable and best-in-class solutions for smart glazing applications and solves some fundamental problems related to smart film and smart glazing, such as ultraviolet instability, infrared instability, narrow viewing angles, narrow range of working temperature, high driving voltage, incapable for front projection, uneven projection brightness and short product lifetimes.

The 3G Switchable Film™ LCD technology provides qualities and advantages that conventional polymer-dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) films cannot provide, including some that are usually unsuitable for outdoor and projection applications. This cutting-edge product offers cost-effective production processes that enhance Scienstry's competitive edge in the market.

"Frost & Sullivan's analysis indicates that Scienstry's technology breaks many limitations of conventional PDLC theory and holds multiple benefits, heralding a new era for outdoor, projection, and energy-saving applications. Outdoor applications are an important feature added to the smart glass industry," said Priya Madhuri K, industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan.

Scienstry has already implemented its technology in many world-class projects for outdoor applications across multiple industrial segments, including cruise ships, luxury cars, and architectural complexes. This illustrates the great versatility and practical application of 3G Switchable Film™ and reveals the enormous growth potential of this emerging technology for future developments. Meanwhile, competitors' technologies are still in the development phase or are limited to industry-specific applications.

Scienstry's advancements align perfectly with the evolving demands for interactive and multifunctional spaces. The technology's ability to seamlessly integrate into various settings such as indoor and outdoor applications, underscores its revolutionary impact, delivering a glimpse into future applications that blend digital displays with architectural elements.

"Scienstry's technology has revolutionized the smart glazing field and exhibited its potential usefulness in many places, such as private homes and public spaces. The new features of the 3G Switchable Film™ have linked the glass and display industries, paving the way for emerging markets," noted Madhuri.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a product with innovative features and functionality that is gaining rapid acceptance in the market. The award recognizes the quality of the solution and the customer value enhancements it enables.
