Kopin ® Corporation (NASDAQ: KOPN), the leader in microdisplays for consumer and military applications, will showcase its newest displays and module products at the SID (Society for Information Display) 2012 Exhibition. The event takes place June 5 – 7 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center in Boston, Massachusetts. The highlights of the Kopin exhibit are a new low-power, high-brightness display module with WQVGA (428 x 240) resolution for mobile information snacking applications, an ultra-compact electronic viewfinder (EVF) module for camera systems, and a 4-mega-pixel display for high-resolution surveillance. Kopin has separate press releases on the WQVGA display module and EVF.
“The products we demonstrate at SID are a result of our relentless pursuit for higher resolution, smaller size, higher brightness and lower power consumption to satisfy our customers’ needs,” continued Fan. “Our broad product offering ranging from transmissive and reflective LCDs to display modules to complete imaging solutions, combined with our high-volume production capabilities and strong financial position, is essential to supporting mobile imaging solutions for our customers.”
