Kopin Unveils Vista VR MicroDisplays For Virtual Reality Markets


Kopin’s Vista VR Displays empower OEMs to create small, mobile
Immersive and Virtual Reality products

Kopin® Corporation (Nasdaq:KOPN), a leading developer and
provider of innovative wearable technologies and solutions for head-worn
computing and display systems, today announced the Vista VR series of
products, a new generation of microdisplays for the immersive Virtual
(VR) markets. This series of High Definition (HD) micro LCDs
allows OEMs to integrate VR viewers in small, elegant consumer friendly
products. The Vista VR displays will be unveiled during Kopin’s
exclusive CES
VIP Technology Reception at the Venetian Penthouse Suites.

“The VR market is rapidly emerging, but growth is limited by large,
bulky form factors,” said Dr. John C.C. Fan, Kopin’s CEO and founder.
“Disruptive miniaturization with innovative microdisplays and small
optics is critical to creating light-weight, portable and consumer
friendly devices. Kopin’s Vista VR series of displays enables designers
and engineers to deliver the smallest, lightest and most widely adopted
immersive VR systems. Our Vista VR SXGA displays have been incorporated
in the world’s smallest, high-resolution VR system by DloDlo,
which is thin (16 mm) and weighs only 78 g, yet provides a fully
immersive 100° field of view.”

Vista VR 720P displays are aimed for applications with an intermediate
field of view (< 50°). These displays are being designed in to a variety
of applications including the first person viewer for drone racing, an
immersive viewer for entertainment, and a monitor for dentists.
