Compound Photonics launches smallest native 4K imaging device at Display Summit China

At the Display Summit China 2016 in Yixing (9-11 May), Compound Photonics (a technology firm founded in 2008 that has primary manufacturing and design centers in Phoenix, AZ, USA and Newton Aycliffe, UK) has launched what is claimed to be the smallest native 4K imaging device, measuring only 14mm diagonally and featuring pixels smaller than 3 microns.

"We are the company that has succeeded in introducing the world to RGB solid-state laser-based technology, making it finally possible to manufacture a 3000 lumen lamp-less native 4K projector that rivals the performance delivered by today's solid-state displays," claimed Tim Anderson, VP of product management in his presentation at Display Summit.  

The use of RGB laser technology eliminates lamps, creates a huge new color gamut to work with, and enables balancing the color output of each color channel to achieve a perfect white point, says the firm. Compound Photonics has invested significant engineering resources to reduce the cost of RGB lasers and speckle, states Anderson.

"Projector customers around the world want to be able to project a huge image in full daylight and still have an outstanding image," Anderson said. "Our engineers have developed specific algorithms that use an expanded color gamut made possible by RGB laser technology. These algorithms combat ambient light and dramatically improve color contrast," he adds. 

Compound Photonics offers capabilities ranging from small, bright, full-HD laser light engines for mobile devices; an embedded 1080P projector that is less than 2cm3 in size; infrared (IR) and green lasers; head-up car displays; near-eye augmented reality; and gesture recognition.
