Since developing Vanishing Mirror TV technology the company has applied it to numerous product lines including the Mirror TV, Lighted Mirror TV, Entertainment Mirror TV, Kitchen TV, Waterproof TV, and custom design products. The vanishing effect allows the mirror to have a two-fold functionality: To maintain its superb reflectivity when the media device is off and serve as a convenient media port when the device is on. Vanishing Mirror TV products are ideal for application in hotel suites and guest rooms, hotel lobbies, restaurants and bars, residences, and spas.
