February 7, 2012 – BUSINESS WIRE — eMagin Corporation (NYSE Amex:EMAN), organic light-emitting diode (OLED) microdisplay and virtual imaging technologies company, was awarded a $1.12 million Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract from the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). eMagin is tasked with optimizing its WUXGA OLED micro display for mass production.

The SBIR project aims to make the 1920 x 1200 pixel OLED microdisplay affordable for commercial and military applications, such as high-performance simulation and training, gaming, electronic viewfinders (EVFs) in digital cameras, entertainment, and more. The contract includes a $435k option. The base period of the SBIR project is scheduled for 7 months, beginning in February 2012, with an additional 6-month option period to further optimize the display.

The WUXGA OLED microdisplay development was originally funded through the U.S. Army Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) and the display is currently available as an engineering sample to commercial OEM customers and military contractors. It boasts the highest resolution produced on a full-color microdisplay. “With HD 1080P and higher resolution, extremely high-contrast (>10,000 to 1), and low power (<350 mW), the WUXGA microdisplay is our most advanced OLED product,” said Andrew Sculley, eMagin president and CEO.

eMagin integrates high-resolution OLED microdisplays with magnifying optics to deliver virtual images comparable to large-screen computer and television displays in portable, low-power, lightweight personal displays. More information about eMagin is available at
