Forth Dimension Displays (ForthDD), proudly celebrates 10 years of continuous and uninterrupted supply of their industry-leading SXGA resolution microdisplay at the SPIE: Defense, Security and Sensing (DSS) 2012 Symposium in Baltimore, MD (booth #1106) from April 24 to 26.
The ForthDD TDITM SXGA microdisplay is recognised as one of the world’s most widely used solutions for high performance near-to-eye applications such as wide field of view head mounted displays. This popularity is largely achieved by ForthDD delivering the highest levels of image quality and video performance, while ensuring long term availability for customer design-ins.
Greg Truman, CEO of ForthDD commented, “After ten years, we are delighted to still be working with all the customers where we achieved early design-ins. This is testament to my dedicated colleagues who have worked closely with our customers ensuring they can use our products with ease. We are all looking forward to the next ten years helping our customers grow and become even more successful.”
While ForthDD’s TDITM microdisplays are expected to maintain their position as the first choice for high fidelity near-to-eye display applications, ForthDD also expects to find new applications in diverse non-display applications where image quality differentiators, product reliability and supply security are of paramount importance.
Testimonials from current customers:
‘We founded our company in 2002 based on the nascent SXGA display from the company we now know as FDD. We took a big risk starting a manufacturing company in a niche industry, but FDD treated us like a partner with an outstanding product, backed by unsurpassed support. The products we built with the FDD microdisplay received immediate praise from customers who were amazed that a head-mounted display can look better than a desktop monitor. We continue to use the SXGA microdisplay today in new development for products requiring uncompromising support, reliability, and image quality.’
Mark Foglia, CEO, NVIS Inc.
“In 2010 ARRI introduced its groundbreaking Alexa digital camera system, which quickly went on to become an industry standard for feature, commercial and episodic television productions. The camera features a high quality electronic viewfinder that ARRI designed around FDD’s WXGA F-LCOS display. With the support of FDD’s technical team, a product was created to match the imaging performance of the camera. Since its introduction, over 2000 Alexas have been sold and customer response has proven that the chosen concept was the right one. As DoP Bill Bennett, ASC remarked at the recent nab show: “In my use of the Alexa over the past year and a half, I have found that the viewfinder is bright, sharp, color accurate, and easy to judge focus.”
Michael Koppetz, Senior Engineer, ARRI.
‘With the disappearance of CRTs and the slow switching of standard LCD displays that replaced them, the FLCOS SXGA by FDD became the perfect solution for our biomedical application. The versatility of this novel technology allows us to develop new applications for research and clinic which are not possible with other devices.’
Erica Sutter, CEO, EDI.
‘We particularly appreciate the ongoing technical and commercial assistance we receive from ForthDD, the availability of ForthDD services and constant willingness to help us in finding solutions.’
