3M Exhibits Computer Privacy Filters at Infosecurity Europe 2006

Bracknell, UK, 1 March 2006 – 3M company is to demonstrate its range of laptop and desktop computer privacy filters on Stand 115 at Infosecurity Europe 2006. The filters present a reliable and convenient solution to reducing the risk of privacy invasion, identity theft and fraud for vulnerable laptop-using business travellers, commuters and frequent flyers by shielding confidential or personal on-screen data from prying eyes.

The privacy filters utilise 3M’s micro-louvre privacy technology which works like tiny vertical blinds to narrow the viewing angle so that only persons directly in front of the monitor are able to see on-screen images and text. Anyone positioned to the side will see a blacked out screen. The filters provide complete protection with no blurring or image distortion. They also act as a safeguard from scratches, damage and fingerprints to ensure a consistently pleasant user experience.

In addition to privacy protection, some 3M filters also reduce screen glare, block ELF/VLF E-field electromagnetic radiation, and prevent static and dust build-up when properly grounded. The filters are available in sizes to fit desktop monitors from 13-inch to 21-inch as well as most laptops, including wide screen models. The filters can either clip tidily into the bezel or attach to the monitor as framed computer filters. They also stay in position even when the laptop is closed.
