BELLVUE, Wash. and HOPEWELL JUNCTION, N.Y., May 20, 2013 – eMagin Corporation (NYSE MKT: EMAN) formally enters the electronic viewfinder market this week with the introduction of its smallest and most compact high-resolution color Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) microdisplay.
The new XGA096 OLED-XL (TM), measuring just .48-inch diagonal, is built on a single crystal silicon backplane with eMagin’s proprietary thin-film OLED-XL technology. The ultra compact, high-resolution microdisplay – featuring a 9.6 micro pixel design – offers extended luminance performance with no back light or liquid materials required. The active matrix microdisplay 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.
Demonstrations of the new XGA096 OLED-XL will be available at this week’s Society for Information Display conference being held at the Vancouver Convention Center, booth #1029. Also on display will be eMagin’s Color OLED-XLS (TM), the world’s brightest family of super bright, low power consumption, full color microdisplays. At 1000 nits of luminance, it is four times brighter than the current industry standard.
“The XGA096 OLED-XL was designed specifically for near-to-eye applications demanding high-image quality, wide color gamut, compact size and very low power,” said Andrew G. Sculley, president and CEO of eMagin Corporation. “The displays are optimized for electronic viewfinders in high end cameras as well as other battery operated devices such as data glasses and augmented vision systems.”
eMagin is taking orders for engineering samples of the XGA096 OLED-XL. For more information and technical specifications: www.emagin.com
