anti-glare screen

anti-glare screen

A monitor screen that is treated to reduce glare from light sources. LCD screens originally had a non-glare matte finish, which was one of their significant benefits over CRTs. By the turn of the century, LCD screens used an overlay that enhanced colors but were once again reflective. Subsequently, glare has been reduced; however, unless the screen was designed with a matte finish, there is always some reflection. See anti-glare filter, LCD and CRT.
