eMagin Corp. (eMagin) has announced that the company will be demonstrating their highest brightness, direct patterned micro-displays designed for the virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) market by appointment to select customers at CES.
According to eMagin they are the only company that has designed and manufactured OLED microdisplays which provide the brightness that consumer products companies demand for their next generation VR and AR headsets.
Andrew Sculley, President and CEO of eMagin, said, "I am pleased to report we achieved what we set out to do at the beginning of 2016." Andrew added, "We are shipping the 2K x 2K display as part of an agreement with a Tier One company that we entered into last year. We previously stated that we expected to sign at least one additional agreement with a Tier One partner in 2016. I am happy to announce that we met this goal and anticipate signing additional agreements in 2017. Our pipeline of interested parties continues to grow, including OEM partners and mass production partners, both of whom are important for commercializing and scaling production of our cutting-edge technology. We have developed and will be demonstrating full color OLED at brightness levels above 4,000 nits that can be mass produced to achieve truly immersive virtual reality." Andrew, concluded, "Also, during the fourth quarter we launched our two consumer night vision products, the award-winning BlazeSpark smartphone attachment and the BlazeTorch goggles, both of which are being shown at CES. Overall, our efforts in 2016 laid the foundation for a strong 2017 as we further capitalize on our technology development and marketing initiatives."
