eMagin (News - Alert) Corporation recently unveiled the world’s brightest, energy-efficient and full color organic light emitting diode microdisplays at the Society for Information Display at the Vancouver (British Columbia) Convention Center.
Company officials said these displays, called OLED-XLS, are currently available as engineering samples and are expected to be fully available by the fourth quarter of 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,” said Andrew G. Sculley, president and CEO of eMagin Corporation. “We have met and surpassed both requirements with the development of the Color OLED-XLS.”
With 1000 units of luminance, the Color OLED-XLS is considered to be four times brighter than the current industry standard.
Fully compatible with eMagin's entire VGA, SVGA, XGA, SXGA and WUXGA product line, the new display requires just half the power at the same brightness as compared to the company's current color displays.
The Color OLED-XLS is perfectly suited for medical, maintenance and process-control 'see-through' data glasses and safety goggles.
This breakthrough display technology enables a broader range of optical solutions for head-mounted display applications requiring full color such as augmented vision/reality products used in simulation & training devices.
The Color OLED-XLS’ compact design, long life, high contrast and low-power consumption makes it one of the most versatile displays that the company has ever created.
eMagin Corp. is a major player in OLED microdisplay technology, OLED microdisplay manufacturing know-how and mobile display systems. Its microdisplays provide near-eye imagery in a variety of products from military, industrial, medical and consumer OEMs.
