eMagin OLED Microdisplays Utilized in Two New Liteye HMD Systems
(Nanowerk News) eMagin Corporation announced that Liteye Systems has developed two new head mounted display ("HMD") products equipped with industry-leading OLED microdisplays from eMagin. Based on Liteye's patented prismatic optic, the new HMDs also take advantage of Liteye's patented universal mount, which allows users to locate the display in virtually any position.
Liteye's new LE-720A HMD is a high performance rugged solution for situational awareness applications. Available in full color SVGA or monochrome video, the lightweight versatile product provides a compact size for portable computing and remote viewing. Prototype LE-720A systems built into Oakley combat goggles are currently being evaluated internationally by military OEMs. The HMD system can also be built into rugged ballistic goggles from a variety of manufacturers, and is ideal for hands-free industrial data viewer applications.
Liteye's new LE-800 is configured to maximize peripheral vision for helmet-mount applications. This product has been developed as the next generation of Liteye's see-through optics products. Liteye spent over two years developing this HMD, utilizing input from multiple military and industrial customers. The product can be customized to meet customers' needs.
"Our customers have come to demand the high performance, energy-efficiency and high-resolution of the eMagin SVGA OLED-XL display," said Rick Sondag, vice president of Liteye. "Liteye System's newest products were all designed with the eMagin SVGA OLED technology for this very reason."
The Liteye family of HMDs has proven its utility and performance in use in such diverse applications as infrared cameras, portable medical equipment, weapons systems, and dismounted soldier programs globally.
