"We're bringing the OVP2200 to market at a time when the wearable electronics industry is poised for explosive growth. Industry analysts are predicting that the global market volumes for wearable electronics will exceed 130 million units by 2018, reaching an estimated $8 billion in revenues[1]," said Raymond Sun, senior manager, LCOS business at OmniVision. "By building the OVP2200 LCOS display into the OmniGlass reference design, we can help enable our customers and partners to quickly enter the burgeoning wearable display and camera markets with highly competitive offerings."

The OmniGlass reference design is a complete optical head-mounted display (OHMD), equipped with a 4-megapixel autofocus camera that delivers high quality 720p HD video, and a best-in-class display enabled by OmniVision's high-performance OVP2200 LCOS solution. The device's image processor is capable of supporting various wireless connections, including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and enables on-screen display (OSD) features for augmented reality applications.

The single-chip OVP2200 is a color field sequential LCOS device with a native resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and a diagonal measurement of 0.26-inch. It uses all-digital technology to produce clear, stable images. The OVP2200's ultra-compact form factor and low-power consumption make it an ideal LCOS solution for applications ranging from wearable smartphone displays to sports and medical cameras.
