DALLAS, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Syndiant, a leader in high resolution microdisplays, has teamed with Vuzix to provide the HD 720p panel to enable its first HD see-through wearable display, M2000AR.
"We have selected the Syndiant SYL2271 HD panel as it provides all the best features for our see-through optical waveguide systems, including HD resolution, small form factor and high brightness", said Paul Travers, CEO of Vuzix. "Waveguide optics are a revolutionary new way of moving light within wearable displays and are a fraction of the size and weight of conventional prism-based optics allowing for form factors with the look of conventional glasses."
"Syndiant believes that wearable displays will experience explosive growth in the consumer electronics and industrial markets," said Daniel Wong, CEO and President of Syndiant. "Vuzix is a great partner due to their deep experience and strong IP position in the near-to-eye space. Vuzix' optical waveguide technology is the right solution to enable see-through displays. Furthermore, we believe that see-through wearable displays will be the winning approach for augmented reality in an attractive form factor that will be embraced by the mass market."
Syndiant will be at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas January 7-10th 2014 and will demonstrate their new HD solution and their entire product line. Syndiant will have a private suite in the Las Vegas Hotel adjoining the Convention Center.
