Forth Dimension Displays Celebrates 10 Years of Supplying SXGA Microdisplays at SPIE: Defense, Security and Sensing 2012
DALGETY BAY, Scotland --(Business Wire)--
Forth Dimension Displays (FDD), proudly celebrates 10 years of
continuous and uninterrupted supply of their industry-leading
SXGA-resolution microdisplay at the SPIE: Defense, Security and Sensing
(DSS) 2012 Symposium in Baltimore, MD (booth #1106) from April 24 to 26.
The FDD TDI (News - Alert)TM SXGA microdisplay is recognized as one of the
world's most widely used solutions for high performance near-to-eye
applications such as wide field of view head mounted displays. This
popularity is largely achieved by FDD delivering the highest levels of
image quality and video performance, while ensuring long term
availability for customer design-ins.
Greg Truman, CEO of FDD commented, "After ten years, we are delighted to
still be working with all the customers where we achieved early
design-ins. This is a testament to my dedicated colleagues who have
worked closely with our customers ensuring they can use our products
with ease. We are all looking forward to the next ten years helping our
customers grow and become even more successful."
While FDD's TDITM microdisplays are expected to maintain
their position as the first choice for high fidelity near-to-eye display
applications, FDD also expects to find new applications in diverse
non-display applications where image quality differentiators, product
reliability and supply security are of paramount importance.
Testimonials from current customers:
'We founded our company in 2002 based on the nascent SXGA display
from the company we now know as FDD. We took a big risk starting
a manufacturing company in a niche industry, but FDD treated us like a
partner with an outstanding product, backed by unsurpassed support. The
products we built with the FDD microdisplay received immediate praise
from customers who were amazed that a head-mounted display can look
better than a desktop monitor. We continue to use the SXGA
microdisplay today in new development for products requiring
uncompromising support, reliability, and image quality.'
Foglia, CEO, NVIS Inc.
"In 2010 ARRI introduced its groundbreaking Alexa digital camera
system, which quickly went on to become an industry standard for
feature, commercial and episodic television productions. The camera
features a high quality electronic viewfinder that ARRI designed around
FDD's WXGA F-LCOS display. With the support of FDD's technical team, a
product was created to match the imaging performance ofthe camera.
Since its introduction, over 2000 Alexas have been sold and customer
response has proven that the chosen concept was the right one. As DoP
Bill Bennett, ASC (News - Alert) remarked at the recent nab show: "In my use of the
Alexa over the past year and a half, I have found that the viewfinder is
bright, sharp, color accurate, and easy to judge focus."
Koppetz, Senior Engineer, ARRI
'With the disappearance of CRTs and the slow switching of standard
LCD displays that replaced them, the FLCOS SXGA by FDD became the
perfect solution for our biomedical application. The versatility of this
novel technology allows us to develop new applications for research and
clinic which are not possible with other devices.'
Sutter, CEO, EDI
'We particularly appreciate the ongoing technical and commercial
assistance we receive from FDD, the availability of FDD services and
constant willingness to help us in finding solutions.'
Vedal, Project Manager, EADS Astrium (News - Alert).
