Vuzix iWear

Share this on social media:

MicroEmissive Displays has released a range of video glasses, known as Vuzix iWear, which uses the company’s eyescreen full-colour organic microdisplay to deliver large-screen viewing experiences to its new AV230XL device. 

The new video eyewear uses MED’s microdisplays, which are similar in size to the human pupil, to equal the visual effect of a conventional 44-inch TV screen. The glasses can be connected to almost any video device such as a personal video player, mobile phone, PC, or game terminal, and will enrich the user experience on offer from innovations such as mobile TV, video telephony and virtual reality.  

The new AV230XL will allow consumers to experience the full richness of games and media wherever and whenever they like.  MED’s advanced technology solutions and expertise with microdisplays has been critical to Vuzix achieving their product performance goals. 

MED’s Polymer Organic LED (P-OLED) technology is crucial to achieving high visual performance with an ultra-small form factor and low power. With integrated driver ICs as well as a digital interface to the host system, the eyescreen microdisplay also solves important integration challenges for product designers and accelerates time to market.
