Highest pixel density OLED microdisplay improves night vision security

Grenoble, France

Micro-OLED, a maker of power-efficient image quality microdisplays for near-to-eye applications, today introduced a new 5.4 million pixel density 0.61 inch diagonal, low power consumption OLED (organic light emitting display) microdisplay on silicon for applications demanding high picture quality, such as security night vision systems, professional camera and camcorder equipment and head-mounted displays used in surgery.
The ultra-compact 5.4 million-pixel microdisplay with a sub-pixel pitch of 4.7 micrometres by 4.7 micrometres is the highest pixel density OLED microdisplay available today. By doubling the pixel density of comparable products, Micro-OLED has eliminated the gap between pixels. With no black matrix present, the resulting image resolution is of the highest quality. This makes the 5.4 million-pixel 0.61 inch diagonal microdisplay most suitable for defense, medical and professional camera applications that demand sharp images with very smooth transitional tones.

High contrast (maximum 100,000:1) and high uniformity (96 per cent) also play key roles in picture quality. Depending on how one drives the OLED microdisplay, it can perform using as low as 0.2W, half the power consumption of other products in its category. Micro-OLED achieves this low level power consumption even when the fully digital video input is embedded.

“We are really excited by the market potential of our new 5.4 million pixel density 0.61 inch diagonal OLED microdisplay that is superior in picture quality to any product in its category,” said Eric Marcellin-Dibon, CEO of Micro-OLED. “This OLED microdisplay is already creating quite a stir among world leaders in imaging products who commend the high pixel density and the remarkable image quality. Moreover, the current trend in replacing optics with electronics components fits excellently with our ability to produce this exceptional picture quality in miniature format. We see many opportunities opening up in existing applications and new markets as a result.”

Micro-OLED will market the 5.4 million-pixel density 0.61 inch diagonal microdisplay to address needs in three areas: head-mounted displays used by surgeons, where high resolution and quality of colours and contrast are a must; professional camera and camcorders, where picture quality is key; and night vision applications, where heightened contrast and uniformity enable defense and security professionals to improve the performance of detection and identification equipment.

The 5.4 million-pixel density microdisplay comes in full colour (16 million colors), SXGA or monochrome formats (2,560 by 2,048 pixels), both with digital video input. It meets the standard environmental operating requirements for military applications. The new product builds on Micro-OLED’s exclusive OLED patent technology that is recognised for its ability to eliminate defects common in other microdisplays, such as colour non-uniformity or fixed pattern noise.

Fire station deploys effective access control

The East Whiteland Volunteer Fire Association has evolved to meet the needs of the expanding suburb and recently moved to a new firehouse designed to provide a more collaborative and comfortable work environment. The fire department’s diverse and transitory volunteer workforce needed a simple and effective way to manage access throughout the 19,000-square-foot building.  After consulting with experts they selected Vanderbilt’s Bright Blue intelligent access management system to manage the department’s 26 doors and close to 150 cardholders.
