eMagin Demonstrates First Ever Ultra-High Brightness DPD Color OLED Microdisplay

The DPD displays omit color filters to produce a quantum leap forward in OLED microdisplay brightness and power efficiency

BELLEVUE, Wash. & HOPEWELL JUNCTION, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 12, 2014-- eMagin Corporation (NYSE MKT:EMAN) has demonstrated the first ever full color ultra-high brightness DPD brand OLED microdisplay. The new full color DPD display, designated OLED-ULT, provides brightnesses that meet or exceed the requirements of the wearable Smartglass market, more than 30 times greater than eMagin’s current largest selling display, while providing 5 times the power efficiency. Power efficiency is a key advantage in selecting eMagin’s OLED microdisplay versus an LCD or LCOS solution.

Demonstrations of OLED-ULT displays are currently being performed for key customers with interests in ultra-high brightness microdisplays for applications as diverse as aviation head mounted displays, smart glasses, and commercial augmented reality applications. “eMagin’s ultra-high brightness OLED-ULT technology was designed specifically for transparent near-to-eye applications demanding ultra-high brightness, full color imagery with extremely high contrast, compact size and very low power, such as avionics helmets and smart glasses applications” said Andrew G. Sculley, president and CEO of eMagin Corporation.

The active matrix OLED-ULT delivers crisp, high-contrast imagery via eMagin’s True BlackTM pixel technology. The screen turns on instantly at low temperatures without the need for heaters and is built to high commercial and military ruggedness standards. The OLED-ULT display exhibits much lower color shift with angle than standard OLED displays. This approach offers a high-resolution microdisplay with extended luminance performance without the need for a back light, illuminator, or separate drive circuitry which are necessary for LCOS or LCD technology microdisplays.
