    This site is specific about the micro-display supplier.

    “The display uses a pair of 0.5-inch OLED micro-displays coupled to wide field prisms (both supplied by eMagin), offering a sharp 800x 600 image with tolerance of differing user’s pupil distances. “

    Microsoft HoloLens

    I suspect that up to now it has largely been a software project which now needs a portable platform. They will have the same problems as google glass, such as battery life, only more so as there are two displays. Hopefully they will discover that they need OLED!

    They certainly seem to be interested in more than gaming.

    "Holographic helmet

    It is likely to be years away from release, but Microsoft's chief executive Satya Nadella said the HoloLens headset represented a "magical moment" of "category creation" that developers lived for.
    The wearable tech's augmented reality see-through lenses represent a major leap forward over Google Glass and other existing eyewear - assuming the machine lives up to its on-stage demo, in which computer-generated elements appeared in the world surrounding the wearer.
    The company said that the final version of the machine would not need to be linked to other devices to work, and should be released within Windows 10's "timeframe".
    It revealed Nasa was already working with the kit, and said the US space agency hoped to start controlling its Mars rovers with a prototype version as soon as July.
    The HoloLens system features a see-through lens, which the firm said would provide a more "personal" experience than other devices"

    Interesting that the are planning a range of resolutions. Maybe they intend to later add consumer to the list of target markets.

    "The field of view (FOV) exceeds one hundred (100) degrees and can have a resolution ranging from one (1) megapixel per eye (MP/eye) to four (4) MP/eye."

  • eMagin Corporation (NYSE MKT:EMAN), the leader in the development, design and manufacture of Active Matrix OLED microdisplays for high resolution imaging products, today announced that it has been developing an Immersive Head Mounted Display (IHMD). This IHMD enables a paradigm shift in the look and performance of Virtual Reality (VR) HMDs because it incorporates the company’s latest 2K by 2K high-resolution OLED microdisplays and patented optics, rather than a significantly larger and lower resolution cell phone display and conventional optics.

  • eMagin Corporation (NYSE MKT:EMAN) a leader in OLED microdisplays and virtual imaging technologies will release third quarter 2014 earnings and host a conference call that will be webcast on Thursday, November 13, 2014. Management will discuss financial results for the third quarter of 2014, ended September 30, 2014, and provide a corporate update.

    Some observations

    amsdaman amsdaman Oct 30, 2014 6:16 AM Flag

    There are comments about the backplane technology in yesterday’s announcement.

    “In addition, a highly improved backplane technology will be developed under this program. This advanced backplane will enable significant performance improvements in the OLED device including more than 30% reduction in power consumption compared to the existing backplane technology.”

    Is this referring to the development of new silicon wafers? If so, could this also include reduced pixel size? That would be necessary to greatly reduce costs.

    Andrew Sculley Q1 CC
    The limit to the pixel size is not the direct patterning today. The pixel size has multiple things, how much electronics you can stick underneath the one pixel. You have to have so many
    transistors and capacitors under each pixel and subpixel, so that’s really a limit today.

    Contract Award

    All tech companies are always into R&D other wise they will have no future. It does not mean they are not a production company for all their existing products.

  • amsdaman by amsdaman Oct 29, 2014 10:03 AM Flag

    eMagin Corporation (NYSE MKT: EMAN) a leader in OLED microdisplays and virtual imaging technologies previously announced on October 9, 2014 a total of $6.8 million in new R&D contract awards. Today eMagin announces that $6.45 million of that total is a contract to develop and produce an ultra-high resolution, high brightness, high contrast, full color OLED microdisplay at a low unit cost. This Defense-wide Manufacturing Science & Technology (DMS&T) award is funded by the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and logistics (USD AT&L) and will be administered by the US Army RDECOM CERDEC Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD) Science and Technology (S& T) Division. The $6.45 million dollar contract will be executed over the next 30 months.

    Magic Leap

    The "super high resolution images" seems interesting to us. For the rest I suspect it is still far away.

    "Talking to industry sources and parsing what’s been said publicly, here’s what we think we know: Magic Leap will show you super high-resolution images right in front of your face, probably by projecting them onto your eye from some sort of glasses. There will be different angles and depths that you can see when you adjust your focus — kind of like a Lytro camera.

    The benefits of this approach seem to be that Magic Leap could combine virtual objects with the real world so they are more immersive, possibly less sickness-inducing, and maybe even possible to be shared with other people.

    Magic Leap calls this “a 3-D light sculpture” and “a rocketship for the mind.”

    Magic Leap isn’t the only one working on this “digital light field” tech. It’s also been demonstrated by Nvidia and the MIT Media Lab. Startups like Avegant are also working on vivid high resolution displays via a projector worn on the face — though for the purpose of watching movies, not augmenting reality."

    Acy is reporting another cheap version today.

    "You can now attach your iPad directly to your face to experience virtual reality

    It was only a matter of time. The iPad has been adapted for all sorts of intriguing and surprising purposes over the years (including, recently, a sex toy). Meanwhile, a number of enterprising organizations and individuals have sought to create makeshift virtual reality goggles out of people's readily available mobile devices (e.g. Google Cardboard). Now the two trends have converged: AirVR is a Kickstarter project from Toronto design firm Metatecture that seeks $20,000 in funding from backers to create an inexpensive headset for converting your iPad Mini (Retina) or soon-to-be-delivered iPhone 6 Plus into a portable virtual reality viewer."

    I suppose it is one way to get publicity not to mention $20,000 in funding.

    New trademark

    I have been trying to interpret the ‘4MP’ part without success.
    The word ‘interacting’ is interesting.

    The other LIVE trademarks are ‘DPD’, ‘Z800 3DVISOR’ and ‘EMAGIN’.

    Among the DEAD trademarks is ‘EYEBUD’. Who else has been TOO long with this stock and remembers Gary Jones and his EYENUD?

  • Nice paper from Rice University, Houston and UNSW, Australia called

    'Draining our Glass: An Energy and Heat Characterization of Google Glass'
    See Acy's blog for the link. and a summary of energy usage in different situations.

    We will all agree with this conclusion :
    "The LCOS projection consumes two orders of magnitude more power than its proximity requires, due to luminance drops in the display path. Replacing this projection with a transparent OLED screen in front
    of the eye would reduce power draw by avoiding luminance drops. Moreover, the see-through nature of OHMDs means that for many apps, few pixels are active at any time. This is optimal for OLED, as inactive pixels do not draw power."

    The issues relating to the stop ship order have now been mostly resolved. For the first customer, shipments have resumed with no expected loss of revenue. Shipments to the second customer resumed and shipments continued uninterrupted to this customer for its other programs. The customer changed to a new display configuration for this program as did the third customer. No loss of overall revenue is expected for the second customer but some shipments originally scheduled for 2014 may extend into 2015. For the third customer, production shipments of the new display configuration are expected to begin shipping once their qualification process is complete and we expect less revenue under this program than we originally anticipated.

    In July, we installed new equipment that will allow us to produce a WUXGA ultra-high brightness full color display with 9.6 micron pixel pitch. We ran the tool to demonstrate its direct patterning capability. In third quarter we will produce samples to show select customers.
