RESEARCH FRONTIERS DEVELOPS MATERIAL FAST ENOUGH FOR FLAT PANEL TELEVISION

                 RESEARCH FRONTIERS DEVELOPS MATERIAL
                 FAST ENOUGH FOR FLAT PANEL TELEVISION
    WOODBURY, N.Y., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Research Frontiers Incorporated (NASDAQ: REFR; BSE: RFR) announced today that the company has developed a new type of liquid suspension for use in its proprietary light control device known as "light valves," which it believes has a response time fast enough for use in flat panel television sets. Attainment of video speed response time has been one of the company's most important research goals.
    The rapid speed has thus far only been demonstrated in a small variable light transmission window and a low information flat panel display.  However, the company stated that it is working with one of its licensees, Litton Systems Canada Ltd., to develop a high information content flat display with high speed and contrast, and hopes to demonstrate such a display during 1992.
    Small-sized flat color television sets using liquid crystals are currently being sold commercially by several Japanese manufacturers. The company believes such sets generally have less than desired brightness, however, because they require the use of light-absorbing sheet polarizes.  If the company's new liquid suspension proves feasible for television, it could be substituted for the presently-used liquid crystal materials.  This could result in production of a flat panel television that is less complex and significantly brighter than flat panel televisions using liquid crystals.
