No, I mean something to apply on the glass of a 32" TV, like a varnish or something.
You can get a special plastic for this. I know you can buy them from some computer stores and some TV stores. Varnish? Geez, that's almost like spray painting your cam black to look professional. :-))

Any idea of how they name it? They come with strange descriptions for that, and people may not be aware of how practical that can be.

Not necessarily, but I just named it so as an approximation of something that might be used there.

I've seen it as anti-reflective screens in computer/office supply catalogs. I also recall Radio Shack or Future Shop selling it. It's just plastic and it's inexpensive.

Do you know if it comes in large sizes, like for a 32" TV?

I don't know. Have you considered checking some computer/office supply places? Office Depot? Don't they have a website? I used to get this catalog from a supply place, they have it, but I can't recall their name. It's back east somewhere around Toronto.

I may try to find out. Do you remember the name of it?

I just did a Google search for "antireflective film", and some Japanese manufacturers popped up. Even wrote to one to see if there's a commercial name for their product, but I don't think they might answer.

The problem is I can't imagine who will be selling such product: office-store, photography, design?

It's definitely a film, that may be applied in different manners. The problem is that you can find anti-glare screens for computers, up to 21". Not 32".

The search begins. It should make a lot of a difference if applied on a regular TV screen. Flat screens are less problematic but still suffer from reflections.

Sorry, I don't remember. But I do recall there's one type that's a hard plastic which you just place in front of the screen, like a 2nd window or front panel.

3M Company makes the Vikuiti brand line of circular polarizing films for this purpose. I use them on my laptop and LCD monitors (up to 18" size) and they do reduce a lot of glare/reflections. These are sold via a number of different office and computer outlets. For a 32" size, check out the brochure from 3M's web site:

http://products3.3m.com/catalog/us/e...us_vikuiti_3_0

Towards the end of the brochure is a contact # to inquire about larger custom sizes and technical details.

[Note: I'm employed by 3M, but not involved with this product line in any way.]

Oops. The link should work now. Once you get to the web page, click on the pdf file to get the brochure.

Thanks!

But it looks like a dead end, because they only say it should be ordered as special size for what I want.

Writing to Vikuiti just bounced back.

Thanks, Joby!

They are still small, as those screens seem mostly designed primarily to help computer screens, so they come in sizes up to 17".

The size I need should fit a 32" TV.
