The OLED-XL microdisplays, the SVGA+ Rev3 OLED-XL OLED solution, and the enhanced eMagin-equipped systems will be demonstrated by eMagin during the SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing 2010 at the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort and Convention Center.
The chief business officer of eMagin Susan Jones, informed that her company’s power-efficient, high-performance OLED microdisplays are vital components for an increasing number of products developed for telemedicine, first transponders and dismounted infantry applications.
The OLED microdisplays can be used for electronic gaming, medical imaging, night vision, tactical awareness applications besides thermal imaging, training, and simulation.
The SXGA OLED-XL, the high-performance, 1280 × 1024 SXGA pixel enhanced OLEDs are useful for industrial near-to-eye as well as defense applications. This OLED
is available as a compact package form. The OLED offers the best combination of low power and high resolution within such a small package in the industry. During nominal 400 cd/m2, full-color operating conditions the OLED consumes power that is less than 180 mW and has a diagonal active area is 0.77-inch.
An OLED solution that has maximum power efficiency, the SVGA+ Rev3 OLED-XL is
ideally suited for near-eye personal viewer usage like thermal imaging. For full-color video applications, this OLED solution consumes less than 175 mW at 100 cd/m2, while for monochrome situations the consumption is less than 115 mW power.
Two SVGA+ OLED-XL displays are incorporated in the I-Port Binocular 50. This I-Port Binocular 50 has a module that has a diagonal field of view of 50°. This module can be mounted in the eyewear. The proprietary In-Line Reflective Optical Collimator (IROC) of Intevac Photonics offers compact and non-pupil forming eye designs.
The IVS IROC of Intevac Photonics and the color SXGA OLED-XL display are integrated in the Digital Image Intensified Night Vision Viewer that is known as the Night Port. The Night Port offers a simultaneous diagonal 50° field of view for an overlay of color symbology in one eye during low-level light conditions in the night. The IVS IROC, the SXGA OLED-XL display, and the Electron Bombarded Active Pixel Sensor (EBAPS) ISIE-11 (1600 x 1200) sensor, are integrated in another Digital Image Intensified Night Vision Viewer, termed the Binocular Night-Port. The Binocular Night-Port offers similar viewing features under low light level situations as the Night Port.
The SVGA+ OLED-XL display is incorporated in the near-eye, lightweight versatile hands-free helmet mounted system that is known as the I-Port EX3. This system is ideally suited for virtual reality, simulation, training, medical, military and OEM applications. The system can receive a range of video inputs from the sensor or computer directly and has a diagonal field of view that is 35°.
The SVGA+ Rev3 microdisplay is ideal for applications requiring color matching and binocular luminance features and can be easily calibrated over the temperature range. This microdisplay includes the design and functional characteristics of the SVGA+ Rev2 OLEDs from eMagin. These characteristics are already established in first responder and military systems, including the ability to respond at temperatures as minimal as -40ºC instantly.
Main design features of the SXGA OLED-XL include enhanced color gamut, added pixel uniformity, true black imagery from eMagin, and contrast ratio of more than 10,000 to 1. This OLED is compatible with digital video and analog RGB signals. The OLED also provides on-chip automated adjustment of gamma correction and luminance for the total operating temperature range.
