eMagin awarded $1.12 million to commercialize a 1920x1200 OLED microdisplay

eMagin has been awarded a $1.12 million SBIR seven month project from the US's Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) to optimize emagin's WUXGA (1920x1200) full color OLED microdisplay for mass production. There's also a six-month option to extend the project further for $435,000.

An eMagin OLED microdisplay

The microdisplay is already available as an engineering sample, and this project will enable eMagin to mass produce it at an affordable price. It was originally funded by the US Army Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC), and features over 10,000:1 contrast ratio and consumes less than 350 mW.

eMagin says that this microdisplay will be the world's highest resolution microdisplay ever produced. Last month MicroOLED announced the world's highest density microdisplay (1280x960 on 0.61"). We do not know the density of eMagin's display as we do not know the size of the display. Sony's highest resolution OLED microdisplay, the 0.7" ECX332A offers 1280x720 resolution.
