It works for me.
2K x 2K is neither 2K (2k x !k) or 4K (4K x 2K) and falls between. I suggest they have just rounded up?
No consumer device perhaps but why not an Industrial/Commercial version?

During his keynote talk at today’s VR World Congress (VRWC) in Bristol, UK, AMD’s Roy Taylor revealed that the company has its own VR device in its labs. According to Taylor, the device supports 4K resolution per eye, easily beating that of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. It also boasts a 120Hz refresh rate, again surpassing those two devices though matching the refresh rate of the 1080p display seen in the upcoming PlayStation VR. It’s not expected that this device will see a consumer release, instead being used for internal testing.
Even with these additions, VR is far from perfect. Taylor noted that achieving 144 frames per second with 16K resolution per eye was the real goal for the tech, which is something fans likely won’t see for a very long time.

Thanks for the reminder. I read your ASM report at the time so I will have to put it down to my memory not improving with age!
As far as I know the evidence is circumstantial. Sculley has talked a number of times about such a system being in progress and Elbit is a longtime Emagin customer for military applications. (Google “Elbit OLED”)

“And beyond military avionics, one company is working on using microdisplays
for commercial helicopter fixed wing pilots and this is a much bigger potential market for us.”

“AMD’s Raja Koduri is a soft-spoken and mild-mannered man, but bring up the topic of virtual reality, and he’s unstoppable.
As AMD’s graphics chief, he’s at the center of developing cutting-edge technology so VR headsets provide life-like visuals in virtual worlds. He’s now driving AMD’s aggressive plan to provide underlying technology to turn VR headsets from a niche into a mainstream product.
Koduri’s plan entails providing technology to make VR headsets lighter while making visuals more realistic. Another goal is to untether VR headsets from PCs, and to provide tools so that the 360-degree interactive content isn’t nauseating or a strain on the eyes.”
Sounds good but later says
“AMD won’t release it’s own headset as it is satisfied with the innovations in headsets from companies like Oculus and HTC. Sony this year plans to ship a PlayStation VR headset for its PlayStation 4 console, which is already powered by an AMD chip.”
Who is making the headsets ?????

In our commercial business, we are encouraged by the level of interest from potential well-recognized entities with whom we are in conversation. In concert with these discussions, we are actively meeting with potential partners with high volume manufacturing capability to prepare us to meet expected demand from commercial applications of our displays
Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2015 were $6.7 million, essentially flat with fourth quarter of 2014. Product revenues (primarily display sales) totaled $5.7 million, 1.3% more than fourth quarter last year. R&D contract revenues totaled approximately $1.0 million, in line with fourth quarter last year. Similar to the annual comparison noted above, the fewer displays sold during the fourth quarter 2015 were more than offset by a higher average selling price.
I think the use of the term 4K here is just lazy.
4K is used for high definition TV's and Cinema.
There are multiple definitions but are all approx 4K x 2k, thus 8 million pixels
Emagin as we know is 2K x 2k, thus 4 million pixels
While AMD's Radeon Pro Duo is aimed at existing VR devices and content creation, AMD's Roy Taylor did hint at what the future might hold for the company during a pre-briefing call, outside of sticking an entire PC inside a headset:
"We are already working with a headset manufacturer, unannounced, with a 4K per eye headset. It exists. It's quite, quite beautiful, and we believe that the roadmap to go into higher resolutions will happen more quickly than is probably expected. Once you've seen a high resolution VR experience, you can see that it's really quite beautiful."

What I do not understand how you can believe the analysis of data from a days trading of 11366 shares in a stock with average trading volume of 87000 shares. Any method of statistical analysis surely needs much more data.
I have been looking for any latest information on ENVGIII. The only source giving any time line was wikipedia. I assume we are in this release, though it has never been confirmed as far as I know. If it is to be fielding in 2017 there would need to be some production in 2016.
“As of July 2015, the Army had bought about 9,000 ENVG-I and 16,000 ENVG-II units. Beginning in FY 2017, the ENVG-III is expected to begin fielding, with a total of 41,000 to be produced by BAE Systems and DRS Technologies. Like previous versions, the ENVG-III allows soldiers to choose between night vision, thermal, hybrid, and a hybrid where thermal images show up with an outline, but extends the thermal capacity out to the entire 40-degree field of view rather than just a circle in the middle, and has a sleeker design for the device and battery pack, improved resolution, is lighter at less than two pounds, and is designed to work with the FWS-I. Plans are to equip 24 ENVGs per platoon, with each costing an estimated $10,000, cheaper than previous versions due to competition and improved technology.”

Q4 results also due of course.
Hope to have some meaningful information!
As far as I know this has not been previously reported. (And to wake up the board again)
“On Sunday, it was reported that Google is working on a new VR headset that's far more advanced than Cardboard and closer to Samsung's Gear VR. But Google's upcoming virtual reality plans are in fact even bigger than that, according to The Wall Street Journal. The company is said to be working on a stand-alone VR product — one that wouldn't need to be tethered to a smartphone or PC to function.”
“The stand-alone device has a less certain release timeframe; one Journal source said it could arrive this year, with another cautioning it remains early in development and could be scrapped entirely.”
And coincidently back at Emagin, Scully 3rd 2015 Qtr CC
“The HMD group is also developing another unique headset, which if all if all goes well will be out next year.”
Well, here is the current display is a two-color display that we put together and don’t confuse this with the two-color display that I mentioned in when I was doing my run through. So, we have a two-color display that we did for the Navy, but it’s white with color filters, red and green color filter. And now the question is we need a full-color display, so we have done two things. One is we said, hey, we can do this very quickly and use the same technique that other companies like the OLED color, OLED cell phone companies, Samsung, they actually do a PenTile display. So, we asked ourselves could we do that and make three color? And the answer is yes, we do very quickly. We don’t have to re-spin the display or anything. So, that’s in a sense what Samsung does is they do a green and red pixel, then the next pixel is green and blue, then green and red.
Do you mean the the 2k x 2k display used in the first demo of their Hmd?
This is NOT a DPD display but white with color filters and was developed for the Navy with only two sub pixels (they needed only two colours per pixel).
As a quck fix for the demo they changed the two sub pixels as described in the 3rd quarter CC question from Kevin Dede. (Yahoo will not let me quote it!)
Regarding the size of the displays the patent states
"It is another object of the present invention to provide a method for use in a micro-display that will allow for the reduction of pixel dimensions and enhancement of resolution."
