Canada & USA - The world's brightest family of super bright, lower power sipping and full color organic light emitting diode (OLED) microdisplays has been developed by eMagin Corporation (www.emagin.com)).
The Color OLED-XLSTM, at 1000 nits of luminance, is four times brighter than the current industry standard. Compared to the company's current color displays at the same brightness, the new display requires just half the power.
It is fully compatible with eMagin's entire VGA, SVGA, XGA, SXGA and WUXGA product line. The display technology enables a wider range of optical solutions for head-mounted display applications requiring full color such as augmented vision/reality products used in simulation & training devices. It is also ideal for medical, maintenance and process-control 'see-through' data glasses and safety goggles.
eMagin will be demonstrating the breakthrough Color OLED-XLS for the first time at next week's Society for Information Display being held at the Vancouver Convention Center, booth #1029. Engineering samples are available immediately with fully qualified production units expected by the fourth quarter 2013.
"Our clients have been asking us to push the known limits in order to create more versatile color microdisplays that are both visible in bright environments and power efficient. We have met and surpassed both requirements with the development of the Color OLED-XLS," said Andrew G. Sculley, president and CEO of eMagin Corporation.
"This technology will enable indoor and outdoor augmented reality headsets for commercial, military and industrial use. We are well on the way to OLED microdisplays that can be even brighter for aircraft heads-up displays and consumer data glasses."
