For LED-Based Projection Systems
SAN JOSE, Calif, June 8, 2006 -- Bookham Inc., a provider of optical components, modules and subsystems, has introduced the ZoroLight LED multiplexer module, designed to support rear-projection television  and pocket projectors that use LED illumination instead of conventional UHP lamps.

Bookham said it has mounted specially designed optical thin-film filters required for multiplexing into a package that is more compact and optically efficient than traditional solutions. ZoroLight multiplexes red, blue and green LED signals to enable digital light-processor projection devices and requires minimum alignment during light engine assembly by customers, the company said.

"LED-based projection systems are a growth market and one that Bookham is well-positioned to support," said Bruce Kuhlmann, director of global sales, thin films, at Bookham. "By using telecom thin-film filter technology and the unique production processes we have developed, we are able to bring theater-quality, high-performance optics to the projection display market and package them in such a way that OEMs can use them seamlessly within their own offerings."

Bookham said its patented advanced energetic deposition automated thin-film optical coating technology produces precision optical filters with ultralow defect levels and higher light throughput, tighter wavelength control, at high volume and low cost.

The company will exhibit ZoroLight and its line of ColorLoc thin-film components for display optics this week at Infocomm in Orlando, Fla., and at SID 2006 in San Francisco.
