March 4, 2005, Taunton, MA-- Kopin, the leading provider of microdisplays for mobile consumer electronics, announced that their CyberDisplay 320C has been selected as the imaging core of the Eyetop DVD, one of the world's first private, wearable DVD players. It features a monocular display near the right eye that gives the experience of a virtual private cinema while allowing users to move about freely, fully aware of their surroundings.
Built with nanotechnology, the Kopin CyberDisplay 320C is one of the world's smallest, lowest power, quarter-video graphics array (QVGA)-resolution microdisplays. The active matrix liquid crystal display (AMLCD) packs 76,800 pixels in the 0.24-inch display, a density that no other QVGA microdisplay can offer. At 1,700 lines per inch, the Kopin CyberDisplay 320C is the world's densest AMLCD. Along with displaying standard text and graphics, the CyberDisplay 320C operates at video speeds and consumes less than 100 mW of power, including the backlight. Kopin's ASIC chip allows color video images up to 60 frames per second, and displays 16 million full colors.
"Eyeneo's unique design is an innovative approach addressing the mobile video market," said Dr. John C. C. Fan, Kopin's president and chief executive officer. "Our CyberDisplay enables an enormous video experience originating from a tiny, power-efficient package, contributing to the portability today's consumers demand for all of their video on the go applications."
The Eyetop DVD is available now for $599 at www.eyetop.net and selected retailers around the world, including the United States.
