eMagin Introduces Lowest Power OLED-XL™ Microdisplay at the SPIE Defense, Security and Sensing Conference and Exposition

BELLEVUE, Wash. --(Business Wire)--

eMagin (News - Alert) Corporation (NYSE Amex: EMAN), a global leader in OLED microdisplays and virtual imaging technologies, announced today that it is demonstrating its new low power/high contrast VGA OLED-XL microdisplay at the SPIE Defense, Security and Sensing Conference and Exposition in Orlando, Florida, April 25 - 27. Company representatives will be available on April 26 and 27 at Booth 3202.

"The new VGA OLED-XL is a perfect match for the majority of sensors used in a growing array of advanced military, industrial and commercial applications including thermal weapon sights, laser target designators, and industrial thermal imaging cameras," commented Andrew Sculley, President and Chief Executive Officer of eMagin. "We have advanced the state of the art for low power consumption and high quality imagery in a microdisplay, with dramatically increased pixel uniformity and the high contrast found only with eMagin OLED technology."

The new 15-micron pixel VGA OLED microdisplay combines a voltage drive pixel approach with eMagin's True Black™ technology to provide a 0.5 inch diagonal monochrome display that uses less than 60mW (less than half of the requirement for our successful SVGA+ OLED-XL microdisplay) and produces sharp crisp images at contrast ratios greater than 10,000:1.

eMagin also is using pulse width modulation (PWM) pixel hold times for the first time to virtualy eliminate motion artifacts in video imagery, with the extra benefit of providing better dimming range and gray level response for low light and night vision applications. The total 680 x 520 pixel array can be used for electronic alignment of a 640 x 480 (VGA) window with the ability to move the image up to 20 pixels horizontally and/or vertically, or the entire array can use all of the pixels for a higher resolution display. The VGA OLED-XL microdisplay is driven by a 30-bit digital RGB interface and is available now in monochrome white and full color. Monochrome green and monochrome yellow versions will follow later in 2011.
