eMagin Corporation (OTCBB: EMAN) announced on Thursday it has commenced a programme to develop an ultra-high resolution OLED microdisplay with 1920x1200 triad color pixels.
The value of the two-year programme is estimated at USD6m.
The programme, managed by the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) of the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC), comprises the third phase of a multiple year effort to provide an ultra-high resolution, 3D-capable display system for advanced medical training systems.
According to the company, the WUXGA (Widescreen Ultra eXtended Graphics Array) microdisplay is designed to be sized less than 1" diagonal with over 7m pixels at a 9.6 micron color pixel pitch.
The programme also involves the design of optics for a wide field-of-view between 60 and 80 degrees. The culmination of the programme is expected to provide a prototype of an ultra-high resolution display system suitable for several applications within Army medicine and military simulation and training, as well as for broad military and commercial uses.
