BELLEVUE, Wash., May 4, 2010 — eMagin Corp. has announced that Liteye Systems has developed two new head-mounted display (HMD) products equipped with the SVGA OLED (organic LED)-XL microdisplays from eMagin. Based on Liteye's patented prismatic optic, the new HMDs also take advantage of Liteye’s patented universal mount, which allows users to locate the display in virtually any position.
The OLED-XL devices feature >4 times luminance half life and exhibit twice the nominal luminance of prior devices. The microdisplays are brighter and consume no additional power. Typical power consumption of a full color display running 60-Hz video at 60 cd/m2 is <250 mW. No heaters or special modes are required to achieve high quality instant-on video at temperature ranges between -40 and 65 °C.
The microdisplays are built on silicon chips with internal video control electronics, eliminating the need for additional circuit boards.
Available in full color, monochrome white and monochrome green, they are suitable for use in night vision, thermal imaging, command and control, field maintenance and repair, instrumentation and test equipment, mobile computing systems, augmented reality and personal entertainment systems.
