QP Optoelectronics Short Throw High Brightness Pico-projectors to Debut at CES 2014
Developing Head Up Display (HUD) and other applications
Hangzhou, China. December 13, 2013 – QP Optoelectronics Co. Ltd. will be displaying its short throw high brightness pico-projectors at CES, #74512, Venetian, Level 1 (Eureka Park). Building on its patent pending short throw light engine projection technology, the company has drawn interest from OEMs developing a range of products including Head Up Displays (HUD) for automotive and aviation applications, curved in-dash automotive displays, advertising displays and LCD-replacement displays in aircraft cockpits.
“Companies developing products that include pico-projectors are finding great value in the benefits of short-throw; this is our niche and expertise” stated James Lupino, QP Optoelectonics’ Vice President of Business Development. “We believe 2014-2015 is where innovative products will emerge that include our short throw projector as a key enabling component.”
Dr. Yong-jing Wang, CTO of QP Optoelectronics, states “we are pleased to be working with both major companies and startups that have realized QP Optoelectronics’ distinct advantage in providing short-throw pico-projection light engines. Our short throw projection provides 5-10 times larger display area at the same projection distance. In other words, it has a larger perceptive display or larger field of view than the traditional pico projector. We continue to make advancements in brightness (double from last year) and short-throw (0.5 to 0.3 throw ratio design). And we continue to expand the applications by working closely with our customers.”
The company is seeking additional OEM opportunities for its existing light engines which include SXGA (854 x 480) 50-100 lumen engines and custom light engines for such applications as HUD and near-to-eye (Google glass) type displays.
