3M's Vikuiti brand stands alone atop the projection world as the only product that incorporates glass microspheres to create the image, rather than the standard diffusion layer used by other companies. Vikuiti projection films have a
distinct advantage over other similarly marketed products due to the patented lensing technology, and 3M's controltac adhesive backing.

Founded in 2003, the company is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, and provides goods and services both nationally and internationally. Spyeglass is widely considered the industry leader in the application and implementation of the Vikuiti brand of rear projection products. For more information, visit www.spyeglass.com.
