Prysm to Ramp Up in Northeast

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
SAN JOSE, Calif., March 30, 2010 — Prysm Inc. has announced plans to ramp up production of laser phosphor display (LPD) panels at its Concord, Mass., manufacturing facility and double the number of workers there within the year. Initially aimed at the commercial audiovisual market, the LPDs will power large-format, low-energy displays for applications such as digital advertising, sporting events, concerts and retail showcases.

LPD technology uses solid-state lasers to excite phosphors on a surface-emissive panel, generating seamless, high-resolution images for large-format displays such as video walls and digital signage. As the modulating laser beams scan across the surface, phosphors emit red, green and blue colors to create an image with no motion blur, providing 180° viewing angles and a longer lifespan compared to conventional digital displays, according to the company.

At the 23,000-sq-ft Concord facility, employees build LPD panels from the ground up using advanced manufacturing processes and machinery. As compared with conventional displays, Prysm said, LPDs have an environmental impact at fabrication that is less than 10 percent. With its recyclable, nontoxic and "green" manufacturing methods, Prysm is leading the 'ecovative' movement to develop more energy-efficient displays, the company said.

"We are ready to meet this panel production challenge, and look forward to adding critical skills in R&D, process engineering and manufacturing from the Northeast region's well-stocked technical talent pool," said Patrick Tan, vice president, Concord.

“Prysm’s Concord team has provided R&D, product and process development and support since the company’s inception,” said Amit Jain, Prysm CEO. “We look forward to expanding our Concord facility over the next year and increasing the number of 'green' advanced manufacturing jobs within the region.”
