Kopin's Golden-i Headset Honored with Technology Services Industry Association Vision Award

05/17/2010

Hands-Free Mobile Computing and Communications Device Chosen as Game-changing Product

TAUNTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kopin(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: KOPN), the largest U.S. manufacturer of micro-displays for consumer, industrial and military applications, today announced that its Golden-iTM headset received the Vision Award from the Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA). The Vision Awards, which recognize game-changing products that advance the industry and shape emerging trends, were presented recently at the Technology Services World (TSW) conference in Silicon Valley.

"Not only is Kopin's Golden-i device the single coolest piece of technology I've seen in years, but the potential business applications are incredible," said John Ragsdale, vice president of technology research, TSIA. "With 34 percent of TSIA members having budget for mobile technology in 2010-2011, the timing for this product couldn't be better."

The Golden-i headset is the world's first "hands-free" mobile-computing communications system that provides wireless remote control of multiple devices (PCs, mobile phones, industrial equipment, company servers, etc.) on-demand and enhances cloud computing environments. Golden-i offers wireless access to virtually all information and can maintain multiple 15-inch virtual display screens spatially so the user can switch to a different screen by a simple head motion. It can also send and receive HD streaming video real-time over Bluetooth 2.1 EDR or WiFi. The Golden-i device can significantly improve employee safety, productivity, and efficiency of any workforce.

Kopin presented the Golden-i device before a live audience of TSW conference attendees as part of TSIA's Service Revolutions series, which included on-stage demonstrations from nine companies. Winners were determined based on audience ratings following a question and answer session with an esteemed panel featuring technology strategist and author Geoffrey Moore; Jim Spohrer, director of IBM University; and John Ragsdale, TSIA vice president of technology research.

"Golden-i was designed specifically as a light-weight, all weather, hands-free computing and communications device for the enterprise industrial service, and maintenance and repair service markets," said Jeffrey Jacobsen, Kopin Senior Advisor to CEO and Golden-i Program Manager. "TSIA members represent the pinnacle of global service, maintenance and repair, and their members voted Golden-i number one in open competition. The positive response Golden-i received at this event is a testament to the benefits and possibilities hands-free computing and communications offers across a wide spectrum of industries."
