eMagin got $2.4 million to develop high-brightness 2000x2000 OLED microdisplays for the US Navy "eMagin explains that in contrast to night vision goggles, which require a low brightness display so that military personnel can transition more easily from wearing the goggles to the light of their actual surroundings, aircraft cockpit displays require a very high brightness in order to be seen anytime during the day." via OLED-Info

E Ink to Acquire SiPix "Combined with Bridgestone’s exit from the electrophoretic display (EPD) business, this means that E Ink, the first company to mass produce EPD, will be the sole manufacturer of the technology." via DisplaySearch Blog

Nouvoyance explains why PenTile OLEDs last longer "[PenTile] enables larger sub-pixels, and a higher aperture ratio (or fill factor - the ratio of active area to nonactive area). This reduces the current density required to achieve a given luminance - which improves lifetime." via OLED-Info

Display Alliance is published by Mass Integrated, Inc., a global display distributor. Mass Integrated supplies display panels for Digital Signage, Industrial, Military, Medical, End-of-life, Projected Capacitive Touch (PCAP), Laptops, and more. Call for sourcing and purchasing: (978) 465-6190

What Can an RGB LED Display Do for You? "By changing which sub-pixels are lit, and how brightly, the display can create any color. For example, if the pixel needs to be magenta, then the red and blue LEDs would both light up, creating the impression of magenta when seen at a distance." via Active Display Solutions Blog

Industrial displays with RGB background illumination module "Electronic Assembly's range of industrial displays includes an RGB background illumination module which makes it possible to set any shade of colour, including white. The five graphic displays of the DOG line offer a resolution of 102 x 64 to 160 x 104 pixels. The three text displays can show two or three lines of text at 16 characters per line, or a single line with up to 8 characters." via NewElectronics

HTC preparing a 5-inch phone with 1080p display for September, say reports "This information comes from DigiTimes, citing an unusual resolution of 1794 x 1080, which we're guessing means it has a full 1920 x 1080 panel, but omits 126 vertical lines for Android's onscreen navigation buttons, introduced in Ice Cream Sandwich." via TheVerge

Orbotech Receives Multiple Orders from Leading Touch Screen Makers for Laser Direct Imaging Systems "Orbotech's LDI systems are used to enable the mass production of One Glass Solution ("OGS") sensors on routed cover glass, a cutting-edge touch screen application that is lighter, thinner, less expensive and more reliable than existing (multilayer) glass-based touch sensors." via MarketWatch

New Dome(R) GX Series 4 Megapixel Widescreen Color Radiology Display "NDS Surgical Imaging (NDSsi) is now shipping its new Dome(R) GX4MP radiology display, a 30-inch widescreen model offering multi-modality viewing in both color and grayscale. With resolution of 2500 x 1600, the GX4MP is ideal for reading Computed Tomography (CT) scans, MRI, PET-CT, Nuclear Medicine, Digital Pathology and Ultrasound." via MarketWatch

Sony KDL-40EX653 TV: First Test Results "Generally, sub-pixels offer wider viewing angles when aligned vertically, so in the EX653, viewing angles from the sides of the screen (which are ultimately more important) could suffer." via DigitalVersus

So, What’s The Best Screen Size For Tablet? Answer: 9″. "After trying all of that on all the three screen sizes, it became apparent that most of the tasks require bigger real estate. Reading books, emails, playing games, watching movies is relatively more pleasing on a bigger screen." via CrazyEngineers
