Kopin Launches 2K x 2K Reflective LCOS Microdisplay


2048 x 2048 Pixel Resolution Ferroelectric Liquid Crystal Spatial
Light Modulator Introduced At SPIE Photonics West Show In San Francisco

Kopin Corporation (NASDAQ: KOPN),
a leading developer of innovative wearable computing technologies and
solutions, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Forth Dimension
Displays Limited, (ForthDD), is launching a 2K x 2K high performance
reflective LCOS device at Photonics West 2019.

The 0.94″ diagonal 2K x 2K device has 2048 x 2048 pixels and can be used
as a microdisplay or as a Spatial Light Modulator (SLM). It is targeted
at high performance applications such as structured illumination and
Near-To-Eye displays. The imager will be demonstrated on ForthDD’s booth
#1651 at Photonics West (Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, Feb
5 – 7 2019). Through a 33° FOV viewer, one can see 24-bit colour 4.1
MPixel images. The purely digital LCOS technology ensures high
brightness capability without any image burn-in.

Used as a microdisplay, the 2K x 2K’s square format is ideal for
specialized near-to-eye applications such as surgical microscopes and
electronic viewers for medical imaging. Used as an SLM, the imager will
also find applications in 3D optical metrology and 3D augmented reality

Greg Truman, CEO of Forth Dimension Displays, says: “We are happy to
announce even higher resolution microdisplays and SLMs for the next
generation of applications in displays and structured light. Our unique,
all-digital, purely binary approach to light modulation serves a wide
variety of applications. Interfacing the 2K x 2K with our established
two board variants, the R10 for video and the 3DM for memory-based
applications, will ensure optimal usability. Optional ancillaries and
highly experienced engineering support will shorten the design-in time
for our customers.”

Dr. John C.C. Fan, CEO of Kopin Corporations, says: “The 2K x 2K LCOS
display is the latest example of innovative products Kopin has
introduced. It is the highest resolution ferroelectric display and SLM
on the market, with very fast all digital switching characteristics to
display a crisp lifelike image or provide high-performance binary phase
modulation. Kopin is the only company that offers the full suite of
microdisplays: transmissive and reflective LCDs as well as OLED
displays. Our microdisplay products are being used across many military,
industrial and consumer applications including AR, VR and 3D metrology.”
