eMagin Corporation, a manufacturer of Active Matrix OLED microdisplays for high-resolution imaging products, announced they signed a development and licensing agreement with a tier-one consumer electronics company to use eMagin technology. The Hopewell Junction, NY-based company specializes in high-brightness, high-density microdisplays, and has been a leader in producing display technologies for the military market, but also has produced consumer headsets, such as the Z800 3DVisor, since 2005.

Display quality is a key hurdle for ubiquitous AR/VR. Advancements require leapfrogging LCD microdisplay technology with superior OLED microdisplay technology.

eMagin manufactures high-resolution OLED microdisplays and integrates them with magnifying optics to deliver virtual images comparable to large-screen computer and television displays in portable, low-power, lightweight personal displays. eMagin’s microdisplays provide near-eye imagery in a variety of products from military, industrial, medical and consumer OEMs.
