Could this be part of the manufacturing partnership eMagin is in the process of negotiating ?

Aside from the IP tie LG and eMagin have with Kodak ,  LG and eMagin had a working relationship in 2000 :

Then of course eMagin was sued by GOT (LG) and the case was settled :

 "The balance of the terms of the settlement remain confidential. "  

Possibly a noncompete ?

And of course Jerry Carollo , inventor of steam punk VR HMD for eMagin , is now Optical Architect at Google :
