Kopin Corporation (Nasdaq: KOPN), a leading developer of innovative wearable computing technologies and solutions, today announced it will introduce high-brightness displays and display modules for smart eyewear at the SID Display Week Conference in San Diego, California.
Building on its leadership in the wearable market, Kopin’s transmissive LCD and display modules are ultra-compact and energy efficient, yet bright enough for reading in sunny outdoor environments. Kopin’s line-up includes the breakthrough PupilTM display – the world’s smallest display module for everyday use. By delivering the most compact displays for consumers and enterprises, Kopin is building on its industry lead and meeting the demands of the growing wearable market.
“Consumers wearing smart eyewear will expect to view content and information easily in any light conditions,” said Dr. John C.C. Fan, CEO of Kopin. “We have made significant breakthroughs in our display design and processing, super-bright and efficient backlight, and ultra-low power driver ASIC to deliver a bright screen image that is sunlight readable. In addition, our displays and modules are ultra-compact, allowing much more flexibility in smart eyewear design. Our OEM customers can use our display solutions to dramatically shorten the time to market and save on development costs.”
Kopin’s new line of displays include a WQVGA display (432 x 240 resolution in 0.20” diagonal) and nHD display (640 x 360 resolution in 0.26” diagonal). Combined with the company’s super-bright backlight, these displays deliver more than 5000 nits (candela per square meter) of brightness. Kopin’s White PupilTM display module incorporating a WQVGA display, see-through PupilTM optics, and backlight is the world’s tiniest display module, yet delivers sunlight-readable bright images to the eye with less than 100 mW of power consumption when driven by Kopin’s A230 driver IC. When fully integrated, these capabilities deliver a complete display solution for customers looking to take smart eyewear to market quickly.
At SID, Kopin is also demonstrating its unique concept systems that incorporate these ultra-compact, high brightness display modules. One of the concept designs incorporates the White PupilTM display module behind the eyeglass frame to make the display module almost invisible. It also incorporates an audio speaker design that blends with the eyewear, enabling the user to hear text messages and phone calls. This is the first smart eyewear that looks natural, yet has many of the key functions useful for consumers. Concept models incorporating the White PearlTM module are designed for light industry and enterprise applications.
Kopin Corporation is a leading developer and provider of innovative wearable technologies and modules for the head-worn computing and display systems built by OEM customers. Kopin’s technology portfolio includes ultra-small displays, optics, speech enhancement technology, system and hands-free control software, low-power ASICs, and ergonomically designed smart headset reference systems. Kopin’s proprietary components and technology are protected by more than 200 global patents and patents pending. For more information, please visit Kopin’s website at www.kopin.com.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
