UniPixel to Demonstrate Display and Film Technologies at CES in Las Vegas

(Nanowerk News) Uni-Pixel, Inc., the developer of a color display technology called Time Multiplexed Optical Shutter ("TMOS") and thin-film materials branded under the name Opcuity™ that incorporate advanced micro-structure technology, today announced that it will provide private scheduled demonstrations of its latest developments in both display systems and Opcuity films during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, from Thursday, January 7 through Saturday, January 9, 2010. Private meetings will be scheduled for potential development or distribution partners, and customers.
Since the Company's inception, UniPixel has been engaged in the development of its unique technologies advancing them into products that implement or leverage UniPixel's intellectual property. By working closely with various industry partners, UniPixel will be introducing the first of its technologies to become products during the CES show. The first of these products will be an Opcuity™ film product that demonstrates one of the many functional uses of a micro-structured surface. A further demonstration to be shown by UniPixel at CES will be highly advanced Field Sequential Color (FSC) LCD systems that will incorporate TMOS based developments that push the performance envelope of LCD displays far beyond current levels.
Reed Killion, UniPixel's president and CEO, noted, "We are excited to be able to showcase the first commercial production products based on UniPixel technology at this year's CES event. We have found through 2009 that our unique micro-structured thin film technology has a breadth of application potential. We expect this launch to establish the platform on which our Opcuity Performance Engineered Films business is built. Working in the display industry we have found that Field Sequential Color LCD panels have been limited in the past by a number of factors. Since our TMOS technology is also an FSC system, much of the work we have done in light management and drive control is directly applicable to an FSC LCD system. We are pleased to be working with a partner that provides us the opportunity to introduce TMOS based sub-systems to the industry, and also provides us the chance to exclusively sell a full high definition (HD) panel as small as 6.5 inches in diagonal for high density, high value applications. We will also be positioned to bring larger format, low power, higher brightness, FSC LCD panels to market in the short term. We will exclusively represent these breakthrough products within the U.S. market under the UniPixel brand."
Any parties wishing to schedule a meeting with UniPixel at CES should contact Ms. Carol Neugebauer at UniPixel's main offices. Ms. Neugebauer can be reached at (281) 825-4500.
