eMagin Claims Brightest Full Color OLED Microdisplay

Bellvue, Washington-based eMagin claims to have developed the world’s
brightest family of lower power sipping and full color organic light emitting
diode (OLED) microdisplays. eMagin contends that the luminance of its Color
OLED-XLSTM, at 1000 nits, is four times brighter than the current industry
standard.

The company says that the new display requires just half the power compared
to the company’s current color displays of the same brightness,. It is
fully compatible with eMagin’s entire VGA, SVGA, XGA, SXGA and WUXGA
product line.

The company’s display technology enables optical solutions for head-mounted
display applications requiring full color including: augmented vision/reality
products used in simulation & training devices, and medical, maintenance
and process-control ‘see-through’ data glasses and safety
goggles.

eMagin will be demonstrating the Color OLED-XLS for the first time at next
week’s Society for Information Display being held at the Vancouver
Convention Center. 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.”
