SANTA ROSA, Calif., Sept. 30 -- Advanced Digital Optics (ADO), Brillian Corp. and OCLI, a wholly owned subsidiary of JDS Uniphase, announced they have jointly developed a rear-projection television (RPTV) light engine based on Brillian’s LCoS Gen II microdisplay panels and ADO’s UltreX-3 color management kernel. The on-screen contrast ratio of the light engine with panels has reached 2500:1, exceeding the known contrast level achieved with any other liquid-crystal-on-silicon (LCOS) microdisplay technology. OCLI is the licensee of ADO’s UltreX technology and provides exclusive manufacturing, marketing and sales support for the product line.
"We believe tThe UltreX-3 light engine with Brillian panels offers contrast performance and uniformity levels that make the on-screen experience much more vibrant than competing technologies," said Michael Newell, director of product development at ADO. "With this new level of performance, we expect to quickly set the standard for microdisplay-based light engines."
Greg Miller, vice president and general manager of OCLI Products Division, said, "The consumer today is looking for large-screen televisions that are higher performing, lighter weight and take up less space in the living room. The UltreX-3 light engine offers cutting edge performance and helps enable television makers meet these consumer demands."
OCLO makes optical thin-film-coated components and assemblies used to manage light. OCLI's products are found in many applications including computer displays, large=screen TVs, projection systems, telecommunications equipment, photocopiers, fax machines, medical and analytical instruments, communications satellites and aerospace and defense systems.
