The first project is a $1.1 million contract over 15 months to further enhance the brightness of eMagin's ultra-high-brightness full-color microdisplay. The second project ($4.9 million, 30 months) and the third ($800,000 over 11 months) involved a new manufacturing technology that eMagin will detail in the near future.
eMagin already demonstrated a full-color WUXGA display that runs at 7,000 nits - which they believe is the brightest full-color OLED microdisplay ever shown. The company expects to double the brightness with this new contract. These displays are direct-emission OLEDs. Currently all OLED microdipslays on the market use white OLEDs and color-filters. Removing the color-filters increases the displays's brightness and power efficiency.
