Kopin and Pico Interactive Join Forces to Transform Mobile Entertainment


“Eagle” Mobile Theater Receives 2018 CES Innovation Award

Kopin Corporation (NASDAQ:KOPN)Hometheater isn’t just
for the home anymore. Kopin Corporation (Kopin) and Pico Interactive
have partnered to showcase a new jointly developed wearable device,
codenamed “Eagle,” that enables a home theater entertainment experience
on the go.

The Eagle, a recipient of a CES 2018 Innovation Award, is a lightweight
mobile headset featuring over-ear noise cancelling headphones and a
removable high-definition OLED display band. The display system provides
the equivalent of an 80 inch screen viewed from ten feet away while
still maintaining awareness of your surroundings, an essential condition
in a mobile environment. The video input will be provided via cable from
a smart phone. The Eagle prototype will be on display at Kopin’s CES
2018 suite at The Palazzo.

Eagle will be manufactured, marketed and distributed by Qingdao Yueshi
Technology Co. Ltd, a newly created subsidiary of Beijing-based Pico
Interactive, an innovative VR solutions developer dedicated to providing
premium gaming and content viewing experiences. The Eagle will initially
be marketed in China.

Kopin, a leading developer of innovative wearable computing technologies
and solutions, has provided the Eagle concept design to Pico and
supplied optical modules including its Lightning™ 720p OLED
microdisplay, which delivers 1280 x 720 resolution in a 0.49-inch
diagonal size. Kopin is also taking an equity stake in Qingdao Yueshi
Technology Co. Ltd.

The partnership represents a continuation of Kopin’s strategy to create
purpose-built product concepts, license those concepts to manufacturers
and brands, and provide innovative components to enable cutting-edge
performance. Kopin has recently executed similar arrangements with
Lenovo New Vision and other companies.

“Today we unveil the fruits of our partnership with Pico Interactive – a
truly game-changing experience that finally lets people bring that home
theater experience anywhere they go,” said Dr. John C.C. Fan, Kopin’s
President and CEO. “Whether you’re a sports enthusiast who can’t miss
the game, in the middle of binge watching a season of your latest
favorite show, or a commuter looking to pass time watching YouTube
videos, consumers can enjoy their video content on the go without the
compromises of watching on a tiny phone screen.”

“By combining Kopin’s technologies and expertise with our high-end
audio, manufacturing and marketing capabilities, we can deliver a
fantastic new experience for consumers,” said Henry Zhou, CEO of Pico
Interactive. “Kopin’s innovative designs and powerful components have
allowed us to create a new product that will truly disrupt mobile
entertainment. Eagle meets a real market need, and Pico will continue to
explore additional innovative new products with Kopin’s industry-leading
microdisplays and concept designs.”
