Company to Highlight 3D Cinema on the Go

LONG BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 22, 2007--Kopin(R) Corporation (NASDAQ: KOPN) will showcase a sampling of its customers' eyewear products at the SID (Society for Information Display) 2007 Exhibition, which runs from today through Thursday at the Long Beach Convention Center in California. In particular, the exhibition will highlight 3D video eyewear products powered by Kopin's Digital iVision(TM) technology. Digital iVision technology provides large cinema-like pictures in a compact package by enlarging high-resolution images displayed in a tiny microdisplay with optical elements.

"For the first time, cinema-quality 3D movies and 3D games will be available to consumers through the use of Digital iVision-enabled eyewear," said Dr. John C. C. Fan, Kopin's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Digital iVision creates an exceptional 3D viewing because it does not compromise on the brightness or resolution since the two displays can be driven independently to provide slightly different images to the left and right eyes for stereoscopic viewing. I urge anyone interested in the next wave of high-resolution 3D mobile eyewear to visit our booth. You've got to see it to believe it."

3D eyewear products being displayed at Kopin's booth (#1905) include:

    --  Kopin 3D eyewear reference designs. The reference designs
        provide stunning high-resolution 3D images by utilizing
        Kopin's A910 ASIC to drive a stereoscopic pair of either
        CyberDisplay(R) SVGA LV (800 x 600 resolution) or WVGA LV (854
        x 480) displays. The A910 manages an SDRAM frame buffer to
        provide smooth flicker-free video to the displays. Supported
        input formats include High Quality Field Sequential (HQFS)
        DVDs and page-flipped computer video at up to 120 Hz.

    --  Icuiti Corporation's iWEAR(TM) VR920, a winner of 2007
        Consumer Electronic Show Innovations Awards. The iWEAR VR920
        is an interactive 3D video eyewear with built-in head
        tracking, microphone and audio. It utilizes iWEAR 3D(TM)
        technology that makes 3D videos automatically functional to
        the viewer. The iWEAR VR920 uses two Kopin CyberDisplay VGA
        (640 x 480) microdisplays to create an experience that is
        equivalent to a 62-inch 3D big-screen image viewed from a
        distance of nine feet. It plugs into a laptop or standard PC
        through a simple USB connection.

    --  Shenzhen Oriscape Electronic Co. Ltd.'s Cyberman(TM) GVD510-3D
        and GVD510A, which use two CyberDisplay VGA microdisplays,
        respectively, to create a 3D stereoscopic virtual image
        equivalent to a 40-inch flat-panel screen at a distance of
        seven feet. The Cyberman 510A connects to a DVD player, iPOD,
        or a cell phone. In addition to these devices, the Cyberman
        GVD510-3D also connects to a PC, the Nintendo GameCube, Sony
        PlayStation or Microsoft Xbox.

    --  Welton Electronics Ltd.'s ARGO(TM) Cinema-2, which
        incorporates Kopin's BDM-922K. The Cinema-2 combines a Private
        Viewer with VGA resolution and a portable DVD player with
        Dolby(TM) Surround-sound. Lightweight, durable and highly
        portable, the Cinema-2 provides 2D or 3D motion pictures
        equivalent to a 48" screen viewed from a distance of seven
        feet.

In addition to the 3D eyewear, the following eyewear, HMD (head-mounted display), toy and digital camera products will be shown.

    --  Excellent Media Group's iTheater(TM)-Q1, which uses Kopin's
        BDM-230K display module in a compact eyewear weighing about 2
        oz. The system features a stylish, ergonomically comfortable
        design and provides a large QVGA-resolution (320 x 240) color
        image equivalent to a 35-in screen viewed from seven feet.

    --  Kowon Technology's MSP-209 and MSP-900, which use Kopin's
        BDM-230K and BDM-922K, respectively. Both systems weigh about
        2 oz and have smooth elegant designs. The MSP-209 provides
        QVGA-resolution image and the MSP-900 provides VGA-resolution
        image equivalent to a 48-inch screen viewed from seven feet.

        viewing system incorporating two CyberDisplay 230K displays,
        stereo sound via noise-reducing in-ear earbuds, six-hour
        battery pack, protective case, and control pendant. Myvu's
        patented optics enables a very small-size frame, allowing
        users to watch video through the device without impeding the
        view of their surroundings.

    --  3001 AD's Trimersion HMD for gamers with wireless connection.
        Incorporating two CyberDisplay VGA displays, it fits
        comfortably over the player's head, eliminating the need for a
        mouse and keyboard, or gamepad controllers. Its tracking
        technology not only gives the gamers complete tactile control,
        but it also provides the visual immersion of being inside the
        game. It's compatible with all computers and most gaming
        consoles.

    --  Wild Planet's Spy Video Car(TM), a winner of the Boy Toy of
        the Year award from the Toy Industry Association. The Spy
        Video Car is a remote-controlled toy car equipped with an
        infrared camera attached to its body and monocular eyewear
        (incorporating a CyberDisplay 113K display) to be worn by the
        user. A camera mounted on the front of the car sends an image
        wirelessly to the eyewear, which enables the user to drive the
        car in light or darkness up to a distance of 75 feet. The Spy
        Video Car allows children to enjoy the "real life" perspective
        of driving from inside the car or to play secret agent with
        night-vision capabilities.

    --  Olympus Imaging Corporation's SP-550 UZ, the first ultra-wide
        (18x) optical zoom digital camera. The SP-550 UZ uses Kopin's
        CyberEVF 230K to give users the viewing precision required
        throughout the entire range of the optical zoom. The SP-550
        UZ's focal length extends from 28 to 504mm (35 mm camera
        equivalent), enabling photographers to get up close and
        personal with their subjects, even when they are shooting from
        a distant vantage point. The new Olympus model also offers the
        highest burst rate of any compact digital camera, shooting at
        super-fast 15 frames per second.
