Gamma Scientific Near Eye Display measurement system

Posted by Charbax – July 11, 2018

Gamma Scientific shows its Near Eye Display (GS-1290 NED) measurement system captures spectral measurements of Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality, Augmented Reality and Helmet mounted displays as viewed by the human eye. The telescopic optics are compact enough to fit inside a helmet and are designed to point in different directions to emulate the movement of the human eye.

Oculus Research of Facebook Keynote at SID Display Week 2018

Posted by Charbax – June 25, 2018

Douglas Lanman, Director of Computational Imaging at Oculus Research, give his keynote address: “Reactive Displays: Unlocking Next-Generation VR/AR Visuals with Eye Tracking” at SID Display Week 2018, the world's largest exhibition for electronic information display technology.

As personal viewing devices, head-mounted displays offer a unique means to rapidly deliver richer visual experiences than past direct-view displays occupying a shared environment. Viewing optics, display components, and sensing elements may all be tuned for a single user. It is the latter element that helps differentiate from the past, with individualized eye tracking playing an important role in unlocking higher resolutions, wider fields of view, and more comfortable visuals than past displays. This talk will explore the “reactive display” concept and how it may impact VR/AR devices in the coming years.

Douglas Lanman, Ph.D. is the director of computational imaging at Oculus Research, where he leads investigations into advanced display and imaging technologies. His prior research has focused on head-mounted displays, glasses-free 3D displays, light-field cameras, and active illumination for 3D reconstruction and interaction. He received a B.S. in applied physics with honors from Caltech in 2002 and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Brown University in 2006 and 2010, respectively. He was a senior research scientist at NVIDIA Research from 2012 to 2014, a postdoctoral associate at the MIT Media Lab from 2010 to 2012, and an assistant research staff member at MIT Lincoln Laboratory from 2002 to 2005.

ITRI shows microLED full-color microdisplay on PCB board vs. glass

Posted by Charbax – June 22, 2018

Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) demonstrated a full-color microdisplay with microLED on PCB board vs. the widespread practice of placing microLEDs on glass substrate, which is much flatter than the PCB . The significance of this technology pertains initially to indoor and outdoor signage because most signage is on PCB board, and not glass. IRTI projects that the industry will prefer PCB board because it can be produced at higher quantities and lower-costs than glass. They can also tie multiple modules together to create a modular display. Future applications include AR/VR and wearable.

microLED, 5000ppi, brightest display in the world (1 million nits) by Jade Bird Display (JBD)

Posted by Charbax – June 22, 2018

Hong Kong Beida Jade Bird Display (JBD) received an honorable mention from I-Zone judges for its active-matrix microLED display with 5,000 pixels per inch and over 1 million nits of brightness. JBD develops next-gen inorganic material-based microLED microdisplays using its unique wafer-scale, monolithic hybrid-integration technology, which allows the excellent light emission of compound semiconductor devices to be paired with IC functionality. JBD’s AMOLED microdisplays provide a solution for applications in augmented reality and other projection formats.

EXALOS shows RGB superluminescent light-emitting diodes (SLEds) for next-gen AR microdisplays

Posted by Charbax – June 17, 2018

EXALOS AG is developing visible RGB superluminescent light-emitting diodes (SLEds) as illumination sources for next-gen AR microdisplays. SLEDs exhibit performance characteristics that bridge the gap between semi-conductor lasers and LEDs. They combine the potential of wide-color gamut and high efficiency with high-spatial coherence (high directionality) and low-temporal coherence (reduced speckle content/coherent artifacts). Consequently, they offer important benefits when used to illuminate near-to-eye MEMs-scanning architectures and spatial-light modulators in holographic display systems.

At the I-Zone, EXALOS demonstrated its first prototype cyano-green (490-500 nm) SLED and its new red-blue devices. It also demonstrated reduced speckle in a projection application; showing the advantage of their special light source known as “super amazing diode,” a speckle-free laser.

Display Week’s I-Zone, sponsored by E Ink, is a unique exhibition-within-the-exhibition filled with demos and prototypes from around the world. Every year, dozens of applicants submit their pre-market and emerging products to compete for a free booth where they can share their inventions with buyers, manufacturers, potential partners, industry leaders and thousands of attendees.

Vuzix Blade Developer Kit AR Smart Glasses about to ship

Posted by Charbax – June 11, 2018

Paul Travers, President and CEO at Vuzix talks about how Vuzix is about to ship the Vuzix Blade Developer Kit to developers, providing a wearable smart display with a see-through viewing experience utilizing Vuzix's proprietary waveguide optics and Cobra II display engine, to be able to see overlaid information, indoors or out, such as patient data, mapping directions, restaurant menus, weather information, alerts and more without picking up a smartphone. Vuzix Blade (see my previous videos about the Vuzix Blade here) can also synchronize and interact with a smartphone, allowing users to keep their phone in their pockets for almost everything where fashion meets technology in the wearable display arena. Vuzix also recently announced partnership to use the new Qualcomm Snapdragon XR1 Platform and also working with Plessey microLED Microdisplay Technology.
