POL Automotive was consulted to work on the Nissan Juke dashboard LCD screen. We were able to not only simplify the design of the reflector, but also reduce light-bleed and the improve contrast of the light at the same time.
Original customer design used two injection moulded white reflectors to try to contain the light in the system.
Light bleed at top of display and poor contrast:

POL re-design uses a die-cut reflective polyester film to give a more efficient, low cost construction.
