- Prysm’s LPD Technology Aimed at AVs
SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 20, 2010 – Following its public launch last week, Prysm Inc. announced today that it will target the commercial audiovisual (AV) marketplace with its new technology, laser phosphor display (LPD).
“I have seen this technology in action and can say, as a designer, it’s remarkable. Its image is vibrant and sharp, and I see it going into designs around the globe,” said Michael Moore of Square Peg Design in Oakland.
LPD is scalable, can deliver to any shape, size and resolution, and has the power consumption of a 100-W lightbulb per square meter, according to Amit Jain, co-founder and CEO of Prysm.
The technology uses solid-state lasers to excite phosphors on a surface-emissive screen that generates seamless, high-resolution images. As the modulating lasers scan across the surface, phosphors emit red, green and blue colors to create an image with no motion blur.
The company says the LPD design translates into good image quality, a 180° viewing angle, a 240-Hz refresh rate, high contrast and a longer life than conventional displays.
“We recognized a considerable gap in the digital display landscape. Current solutions have so many compromises and drawbacks associated with maintenance, consumables, brightness, seams, viewing angles, power costs and visual quality,” said Dana Corey, vice president of sales and marketing for Prysm.
Prysm will showcase the LPD technology at ISE, booth #11F41, Feb. 2 to 4 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The booth will be invitation only, and Prysm asks key international channel partners to contact the company for a demonstration and meeting time.
