The ultra-small displays, combined with compact optics allowed for the transmissive displays, are ideal for many portable electronics including wearable headsets.
Kopin's CyberDisplay® products are the only transmissive LCDs that use high-quality single-crystal silicon transistors. These display products have the world's highest pixel density, allowing the sharpest resolution for their size. When viewed through a lens, Kopin display products show high-resolution video and data images. These displays exhibit low power consumption and high brightness when combined with low power ASIC and efficient backlight. CyberDisplay LCDs are manufactured in a broad range of resolutions and size, ranging from 0.16" to 0.97" diagonal. Kopin's CyberDisplay products and applications involve more than 100 patents and patents pending.
Since the first CyberDisplay products were introduced in 1997, the displays' performance advantages and unmatched features have been used in over 30 million devices for a wide range of customers including Fujifilm, JVC, Kodak, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Recon Instruments, Samsung and Vuzix. CyberDisplay LCDs are also the microdisplay of choice for advanced night vision goggles and thermal weapon sights used by the U.S. Army.
In addition to transmissive displays, Kopin’s subsidiary, Forth Dimension Displays, offers reflective Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) displays with resolutions of WXGA (1280 x 768), SXGA (1280 x 1024) and QXGA (2560 x 2048) for high-end industrial and commercial applications.

Snow2 for Ski Goggles
Recon Instrument’s MOD Live Ski Goggles include Kopin’s WQVGA (428 x 240 resolution) screen and provide skiers and snowboarders with useful information such as speed, jump analytics, distance, pre-loaded trail maps, height and GPS location, while keeping MOD Live users connected to calls and texts via Bluetooth.
Vuzix Corporation’s M100 Smart Glasses
Vuzix Corporation’s M100 Smart Glasses are equipped with Kopin’s White Pearl display module (consisting of CyberDisplay WQVGA, backlight, and optics) and ultra-low-power drive IC. The M100 Smart Glasses provide most of the features and capabilities of a modern smartphone in a hands-free wearable device, including a full color video display that floats in or near your line of sight and helps minimize visual blockage of the real-world view.
Raytheon’s Light Thermal Weapon Sight (LTWS)
Raytheon's light thermal weapon sight (LTWS) combines Raytheon's advanced thermal imaging technology and Kopin's CyberDisplay 640M LV to give soldiers the ability to shoot equally well during the day or night, through battlefield obscurants, in adverse weather and in zero-illumination situations. Weighing less than three pounds, the LTWS is powered by commercially available AA batteries and utilizes an eyecup-activated stand-by mode for power conservation.
