KopinKopin Binocular Display Module (BDM-230K) : Kopin, the largest U.S. manufacturer of microdisplays for mobile consumer electronics, today unveiled at the SID International Symposium the new Kopin Binocular Display Module (BDM-230K), a plug-and-play video subsystem that integrates all the necessary electronics and optics for mobile video eyewear applications into a lightweight, self-contained unit. Incorporating dual Kopin CyberDisplay 230K microdisplays, the BDM-230K enables manufacturers of video eyewear to reduce the lead time and initial investment of new product development. Near-to-eye personal displays are projected to be a $1 billion market by 2008, according to a 2004 report by McLaughlin Consulting Group and Insight Media.

The BDM-230K delivers crisp, full-color QVGA-quality (320 x 240 resolution) video in an eyewear format that creates the effect of a virtual 35-inch display viewed from a seven-foot distance. The BDM-230K is a complete binocular optical system that includes two CyberDisplay 230K full-color displays, backlights, drive electronics, and a pair of 24-degree field-of-view optics with 20-mm eye relief and 10-mm pupil size.

Kopin BDM-230K video subsystem
"Our BDM-230K frees video eyewear manufacturers from the technical complexity of the display system, which allows them to focus on the creative process of designing stylish products that consumers want," said Dr. John C.C. Fan, Kopin's president and CEO. "As is true for most consumer electronic products, the standardization of the components, such as this video subsystem, is critical for low cost and ultimately mass adoption of the end product. With advances such as our BDM-230K, eventually consumers will be able to watch DVD movies, music videos and TV on the go, browse the Web and check their e-mail from mobile devices such as cell phones, or play 3D video games using lightweight eyewear systems."

Kopin liquid crystal displays - Small and Powerful
The CyberDisplay 230K displays, the world's smallest and most power efficient QVGA liquid crystal displays, are precisely aligned to the optics and to each other for viewing comfort. The BDM-230K also includes audio pass-through connectors to simplify final assembly. The BDM-230K requires only 3.3 V power and video input, either in NTSC or PAL format. Measuring just 97.5 mm x 23.75 mm x 22.0 mm and weighing only 26 grams, the BDM-230K's low power consumption (<450 mW) allows long viewing time without recharging the battery.

Kopin BDM-230K - Solution for mobile video eyewear
"The BDM-230K concept was developed after input from customers who are seeking a turnkey solution for mobile video eyewear," said Dr. Boryeu Tsaur, executive vice president and general manager of Kopin's display division. "With the BDM-230K, we now offer a complete range of products from displays and electronic viewfinders for our large vertically integrated customers to subsystems for customers who prefer outsourcing for fast product development. Several design-in activities for commercial eyewear products are under way with potential customers. Production of the BDM-230K module is expected to start in a few months."
