Stocks in this article: REFR

LAS VEGAS and KORTRIJK, Belgium, Oct. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research Frontiers (Nasdaq:REFR) licensee Vision Systems showcases its reputation for innovation this week with the public unveiling of two new products at major trade shows. These products capitalize on the superior and unique dimmable window performance of Research Frontiers' SPD-Smart light-control technology, and offer benefits including ease of installation, user well-being, and energy savings.

Joseph M. Harary, President and CEO of Research Frontiers, noted: "Mercedes first brought widespread awareness of SPD-SmartGlass technology to the automotive industry with the Magic Sky Control panoramic roofs on their SLK and SL roadsters, and their all-new flagship S-Class. Vision Systems has taken this same best-selling high-performing technology used on the world's most luxurious cars and brought it to the aircraft, yacht and mass transit industries with features such as on-glass window controls, ultra-light window design, and elegant integration with smart devices and cabin management systems. Their latest two innovations in how people interact with the smartest glass in the world, an easy-to-install sun visor and a self-powered SPD-Smart window, will bring the benefits of SPD-Smart light-control technology to a wider group of users by making their vehicles more comfortable, safer and energy efficient, whether they be on the road, on the water, or in the air."

Energia: World's first self-powered dimmable window for aircraft cabins to be unveiled at Vision Systems' booth (C9522) at the 2013 NBAA, on October 22-24 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

SPD-Smart dimmable windows are increasingly in demand by aerospace OEMs, airlines, operators and aircraft owners. Energia, Vision Systems' new product, adds the many practical, technical, and financial benefits of solar power to the instant switching speed, wide range of light transmission, and relief from light, glare and heat that SPD-Smart aircraft windows already provide. Energia operates without using the aircraft's electrical system because it integrates a transparent photovoltaic layer that is capable of producing its own energy – from the sun, or from artificial light sources.
