Leading supplier of high resolution spatial light modulators


The QXGA-R9 is a 3.1 MPixel or 2048 X 1536 pixel FLCoS for applications requiring a very high resolution microdisplay or a fast spatial light modulator (SLM) operating in either amplitude modulation or phase modulation.

Configured as a near-to-eye (NTE) display the QXGA-R9 is one of the highest resolution microdisplay in the world with over 3.1 million pixels in a 21mm (0.83”) diagonal.

Using Time Domain Imaging™ to create high fidelity images, it enables immersive (>100°) wide field of view (WFOV) head mounted display systems to be realised without resolvable pixel structure.

As a fast SLM it can display binary bit-planes in real time at frequencies >5.7 KHz enabling developments in a range of industrial applications.

Building on 10+ years of FLCoS design and manufacturing at Forth Dimensions Displays, the QXGA-R9 represents the latest revolutionary step in fast, versatile, high resolution, high quality microdisplay systems.
