|eMagin OLED-XL microdisplays at SID 2006|
Ilse Jurriën : June 6th 2006 - 23:02 CET
eMagin OLED-XL microdisplays at SID 2006 : eMagin Corporation, a leader in OLED technology and high resolution personal display systems, will demonstrate the latest innovations in power-efficient microdisplays, the OLED-XL microdisplays, at the Society for Information Display Conference and Exhibition at San Francisco's Moscone Center June 6 through June 8. Located in Booth 744, eMagin is also showcasing its microdisplay portfolio and subsystems in rugged commercial products and modules which meet the needs of near-eye applications ranging from PC gaming to night-vision headsets and scopes to mobile command and control communications and training and simulation. |
OLED-XL displays - SVGA resolution |
eMagin's proprietary OLED-XL displays provide a new level of high performance imaging. Incorporation of a unique merger of advanced OLED materials with eMagin's new top-emitting device structures, built using proprietary processes, yield significant improve-ments in lifetime and luminance for the new class of displays. The new OLED-XL devices have up to 10 times longer luminance half life and up to 5 times the efficiency of eMagin's already high performance displays, depending on the specific OLED-XL product and operating parameters. The gain in efficiency enables the OLED-XL microdisplays to provide significantly higher luminance with the lowest power requirement and widest temperature range of any commercially available SVGA resolution microdisplay system.

eMagin is now offering samples of the OLED-XL microdisplays with production quantities available in the fall. "Power efficiency and brightness have been hallmarks of OLED microdisplays. OLED-XL technology improves on both these characteristics and extends display lifetimes as well," noted Susan Jones, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, eMagin Corporation. "Our first OLED-XL displays use the same electronics designs as our current products so that OEM customers can readily adapt their systems to take advantage of these performance improvements. We are excited to show these next-generation microdisplays at SID, where attendees can see for themselves the future of OLED microdisplays."

At SID 2006 at San Francisco's Moscone Center Magin will also showcase its portfolio of microdisplays and modules in products developed by eMagin and select OEM customers.
• eMagin Z800 3DVisor - the 2006 winner of CEA's coveted Best of Innovations award for the entire category of digital displays as well as the Design and Engineering Award for electronic gaming. The Z800 3DVisor combines large-screen (105-inch display viewed at 12 ft) 3D graphics and video with highly responsive headtracking for computer gaming. In addition, the 3DVisor enables portable, cutting-edge industrial and military visual training simulations - so realistic that the Z800 3DVisor has also been used in treating post-traumatic stress disorder in soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
• eMagin Eyebud 800 - personal display prototype delivers high-resolution video from any video-capable iPod or other personal video player. The SVGA (800 x 600 pixels) display delivers full-color video at a full 60 Hz from handhelds delivering SVGA, NTSC, or PAL signals. Its 40-degree field of view provides a virtual image equivalent to a 105-inch display viewed from 12 ft.
• eMagin Industrial Personal Display - A rugged ergonomic design provides SVGA color OLED microdisplay housed in a moisture, dust and heat resistant USB or Vdc powered module designed for PC RGB input.
• Nivisys TAM 14 - The rugged lightweight TAM-14 thermal acquisition monocular, equipped with SVGA OLED microdisplays, won a production contract for thermal imaging systems from the Department of Homeland Security. The TAM-14 delivers infrared imagery immediately at startup and operates continuously up to six hours on two standard lithium batteries. It can be quickly adapted to head gear, helmets, weapons, video output, and other equipment.
• Total Fire Group's Fire - Warrior micro thermal imaging system, a monochrome, helmet-based unit provides hands-free thermal imaging for firefighters, leaving both hands free for the work of fighting while providing critical visual information.
• Liteye Systems LE-450 - Compact and rugged full-color viewer and the LE-500 see-through viewer bring virtual imaging to commercial and military customers in Europe and North America.
• TekGear O1 OLED Driver Board - Specially developed to complement eMagin OLED displays, the boards support monocular applications or binocular and stereoscopic applications where each display engine must move independently or receive a different video signal. They provide VESA VGA/SVGA video, and NTSC/PAL monochrome video inputs. The boards provide power conversion, OLED initialization, auto video resolution and refresh frequency detection (multi-sync).
• eMagin WF05 prism optic - Compact, sealed integrated display and optic modules, dubbed OLED Microviewers, provide approx. 40 degrees field of view in a rugged single-element optic module for easy integration. The eMagin WF05 prism optic en modules will be available in full color and monochrome (white, yellow, green or custom) options.
• eMagin OLED Quad Taper - Customizable taper configurations for extremely high resolutions with variable magnification. Custom surface curvatures accommodate different optical designs.
Fraunhofer Institut fur Photonische Mikrosysteme
Visitors to the Fraunhofer Institut fur Photonische Mikrosysteme at the German pavilion can see the OLED-based VisualSystem marketed by NordicNeuroLabs to provide true 3D visual stimuli for fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) applications. Fraunhofer will also give a presentation on the system in the Tuesday afternoon Applications Session.
