Sony develops film that renders screen reflection almost non-existent
Jun 21, 2012

This article mentions smart phone and tablet displays but I imagine such a technology would be wonderful for camera displays where touch screen capability could improve user experience. (On the other hand, I'd hate to see it used to eliminate buttons just to save cost.)

From http://www.geek.com/articles/mobile/sony-develops-film-that-renders-screen-reflection-almost-non-existent-20120620/ :

Sony achieved such low reflections by combining its new conductive film with a moth-eye low reflection film. Together they form a surface that reflects significantly less light than any other low reflecting films currently in use.

The key to the low reflectance is the formation of an uneven surface, which consists of both concave and convex structures (tiny bumps) that cover the entire film. The uneven surface means that light won’t just bounce back off the screen creating a reflection, and therefore making the screen usable in a wider range of lighting conditions.
