UniPixel will debut TMOS display prototypes at SID 2008

May 16, 2008--Uni-Pixel (The Woodlands, TX), developer of a color display technology called time-multiplexed optical shutter (TMOS), plans to showcase its TMOS display prototypes at SID's DisplayWeek 2008, May 19-23 in Los Angeles, CA, marking the company's first public demonstration of the TMOS flat-panel display prototypes.

May 16, 2008--Uni-Pixel (The Woodlands, TX), developer of a color display technology called time-multiplexed optical shutter (TMOS), plans to showcase its TMOS display prototypes at SID's DisplayWeek 2008, May 19-23 in Los Angeles, CA, marking the company's first public demonstration of the TMOS flat-panel display prototypes.

The TMOS display uses frustrated total internal reflection (FTIR) as the means for transmitting light to the display viewer leveraging a polymer micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) implementation (see www.laserfocusworld.com/articles/314410). At SID, UniPixel will unveil three TMOS display platforms, each developed for specific market applications. These include enunciator display systems that can be used for simple image and icon systems; dot-matrix display systems that can be used for alpha-numeric displays; and thin film transistor (TFT) systems that can be used in all types of electronic display products, ranging from cell phones to televisions.

The initial prototypes have been designed to show the functionality of TMOS systems and its commonality with existing TFT production processes for manufacturing partners. The TMOS display prototypes demonstrate full optical and electro-mechanical performance that will support fully functional video capabilities applicable to cell phones, notebooks, TVs and other applications.

In addition, UniPixel will demonstrate the capabilities of its Opcuity films, a key material component that UniPixel will supply to its display manufacturing partners. This will include the recently announced Opcuity FPR, which provides finger print resistance, anti-glare, and scratch resistance as a top layer for any touch screen system.
