garce, could a panel display company be interested in Emagin's sealing system?
Sculley made a comment in the 2014 QTR 4 CC where he seems to compare Emagin's new sealing system with those of large display companies.
"The other thing I might mention is that our seal is about one-fifth to one-tenth the size of the ones that are on in large display company as by
measurement. Through the OLED display community this 1000 hour of success is nothing short of amazing for a thin film encapsulation especially one
as thin as ours."

Surely the point of an enterprise edition is higher spec hardware?
As regards release of Windowsc10, Microsoft is telling me that I can install it at the end of this month so there is no link with HoloLense.
Even though Microsoft has been showing HoloLens gaming demos of Minecraft and Halo at events like E3, the company's CEO, Satya Nadella, has confirmed that the first version of the augmented reality headset will focus on the enterprise and business sectors.
" I want us to push a lot more of the enterprise usage."
"In general Microsoft's approach will be always this dual-use focus, or this multi-focus. What we can uniquely do is bridge consumer to enterprise. That's in our DNA. That's why it's even in our mission statement of empowering people and organizations. I want every technology of ours to seek that out. In the HoloLens case, when I look at the interest, it's amazing how many are in hospitals, healthcare, retail. That's where I'm seeing the interest and we'll definitely go after it.".
Who does he mean?
" I hope this article gets folks up to the speed necessary to digest that newsflow. And I'm looking forward to collaborating on it in the comments, especially with the help of those few, poor, pathetically patient, shockingly informed EMAN bulls who await their ultimate vindication for the exabytes of insights they've loaded onto obscure stock forums over the years. I think it's coming."
The full article is now available form SA. A long read so here is the summary.
•eMagin makes the world's finest microdisplays. It is the OLED pioneer in the less-than-one-inch form factor, and by far, its technical and sales leader.
•The company's continued leadership in the military arena - night and thermal vision systems, for example - is a foregone conclusion that alone justifies the valuation.
•Enterprise and Consumer Augmented and Virtual Reality - like Google Glass and Oculus Rift is expected to explode in the next five years, taking the microdisplay market with it.
•OLED is a young, hard-to-manufacture technology. Reflecting that, and its small-run military spec history, eMagin's current prices are understandably quite high.
•The military protects our downside. Less price-sensitive enterprise markets offer substantial upside. And if costs are conquered, then we've got a moonshot in mass markets.
"Shares of display technology maker Himax Technologies (HIMX) are surging today despite a terrible tech market, rising 70 cents, or 9%, at $8.47, after Jay Srivatsa with Chardan Capital Markets raised his rating on the shares to Buy from Sell, writing that it could get a lift from the use of its technology in the forthcoming augmented reality headset from Microsoft (MSFT), called “Hololens.”"
"Though it hasn’t been confirmed by either party, Srivatsa thinks Himax’s thin-film liquid-crystal display technology,” known as “LCOS,” is being used in Hololens: “It is our view that HIMX is the provider of LCoS Microdisplays to the Hololens. With two driver ICs supporting two viewing lenses, the content for HIMX is twice that of the now defunct Google Glass."
Anybody know how reliable this analyst is?

and then moves briefly onto iHMD.

Rochester, New York. — June 15, 2015: Six15 Technologies announced they have launched their own smart glasses and turn key software and integration solution. The smart glasses and platform is called INFINITY Platform™ and is available to developers and strategic partners now, and will be available worldwide for non-consumer applications in January 2016. The smart glasses sport a sleek, light and refined design; the INFINITY.1’s display uses a miniaturized LCD-based projection lens system with a 17.5 degree field of view. Integratable modules can be img2added for video, audio, and communication upgrades and multiple variations can be configured to meet changing needs. Impact tested, safety rated and easy to clean lenses make these ideal for all environments. Polarized lenses will be available for higher light or outdoor environments.
Is this 1st hand knowledge or just more bashing? I was there and this demo was a lot farther along than what Oculus had two years ago! Yes, a connector was coming loose, so what! The image resolution was like nothing I've seen in any product, and I've seen them all. If a big player works with these guys, they will certainly corner the market on resolution and small size. But don't take my word for it. Read the tweet below from a well known and respected researcher and expert in this field: "Oliver Kreylos @okreylos Jun 9
Just tried eMagin's upcoming 2k x 2k per eye, 80x80 FOV HMD: oled-infoDOTcom/what-emagins-oled-microdisplay-vr-hmd-looks … Details to follow, but it's awesome. Stylish, too."
The noise of the bashers may have hidden some of the best posts of the day, all by chungd248, so I repeat some them here.
SA and others will write what they want regarding buy/sell recommendations. My expertise is in AR/VR development and use of product for real world applications. From a display point of view, there is nothing that can touch it right now. Big cell phone displays that are being used in some commercial VR products out there just can't live up to the image quality that a OLED micro display can achieve. What emagin needs now is a partner to define what interfaces will be used and integrated into the electronics. emagin did the smart thing by not fussing over this aspect when they know it will most likely be redefined by any partner they work with. So they're showing off the display and there's not one written article that condemns that aspect of the demo. What everyone needs to understand is that the optical system is the key to all of these products. The electronics is the easy part. emagin has done an unbelievable job in shrinking the size of the lens and matching it to their high resolution display. This is a HUGE achievement and no other company has been able to do this. All other products are rectangular boxes on your face. So read what you want, but educate yourself as to the real issues and innovations and you might just change your opinion.
Yes I read the article, and the Upload comments are out of context. If you read the Upload article, they write that the display was "gorgeous!" They also made it clear that Cui commented several times that this was only a prototype to highlight the image quality and not the needed improvements to hardware that would come along with the right partner. So if you bashers would take the time to learn what this industry is about from those of us who actually use AR and VR products at work, you might look at the glass as half full instead of half empty.
Thanks to Optimist and his wife for the excellent report from the ASM.
I really appreciate your taking the time and effort needed in producing this report.
A link to the report is to be found at ACY’s blog or go directly to the AV board.
Yahoo refuses to allow a post to the link.
Actually the exhibition part starts tomorrow (Exhibition Dates: June 2-4, 2015)
Maybe in the morning is better timing?
Still Emagin's record on PR is not good
I-Zone would be the ideal place for Emagin.
I hope they applied in time. ( Submissions are due by March 27,2015).
They are certainly at Booth 1827
