AUGUST 7--eMagin Corp. (San Diego, CA, and Hopewell Junction, NY; www.emagin.com) announced the ability to create OLED video displays with a balanced full-color spectrum exceeding that of the best commercially available liquid-crystal-display (LCD) notebook displays. The broader-color-spectrum OLED microdisplay incorporated in a prototype binocular entertainment headset was demonstrated at the SPIE International Symposium on Optical Science and Technology (San Diego, CA).

By creating a balanced full-color spectrum, including white, eMagin's OLED microdisplay-based systems provide customers with fuller and deeper color ranges than obtainable with other portable products. Coupled with eMagin's unique precision gray-level control and color memory at each pixel, the company's displays will provide users with video quality needed for mobile information products such as portable computers, wireless Internet viewers, portable DVD players, gaming platforms, and wearable computers.

Said Webster Howard, eMagin's vice president of technology, "Until now, our OLED color range and chromaticity were close to those of a cathode-ray tube (CRT), but now they exceed the standard of the CRT's color saturation in red and green. This is a major advantage for PC video game and DVD entertainment applications, as we now span the vast majority of range of the average person's ability to perceive color with our unique version of this technology."
