Forth Dimension Displays Limited™ have been introduced today as the new name and description of the former CRLO Displays Limited. Forth Dimension Displays can also be recognised by the abbreviated ForthDD™.

In announcing the change, CEO Dr. Leslie G. Polgar said, “Forth Dimension Displays more clearly identifies both our Scottish roots, on the Firth of Forth, and our focus on developing and bringing to large-scale commercialization the benefits of our one-chip, high-speed, high-resolution microdisplay technology.”

According to the company’s COO, Greg Truman, “Forth DD microdisplays process images temporally — not by three separate RGB channels— but truly in the fourth dimension – Time. Forth DD provides all-digital, Time Domain Imaging (TDI™) on a single chip.”

The company has become the leading supplier of the most advanced microdisplays for high-end specialty applications: military training and simulation, medical imaging, printing and high-end immersive entertainment applications. It exports over 90% of its production from its Dalgety Bay, Scotland facility to customers in North and South America, Asia, Africa and continental Europe.

The company is expanding into larger commercial and consumer markets, having developed its unique single chip solutions for large screen Rear Projection HDTVs.

Background Information

About Forth Dimension Displays Limited - http://www.forthdd.com

Forth Dimension Displays Limited™ (ForthDD™) design, develop and manufacture single chip microdisplays. These components have multiple applications in consumer entertainment, military, photography, medical and data storage segments, including:

  • Rear Projection High Definition Television    

  • Near-eye, immersive applications (training, simulation, medical)
  • Advanced image processing and storage (printing, data storage, image injection)

ForthDD™'s proprietary technology allows imaging to be performed temporally (Time Domain Imaging, TDI™) without subpixels or tilting micro-mirrors.

TDI™ is extremely fast switching and 100% digital, providing 24-bit full colour images capable of handling high-speed motion and without artefacts. ForthDD™'s single chip imagers are especially well-matched to the new solid state LED and laser diode light sources and provide very high native resolution: SXGA /720p and UXGA/1080p.

Working with customers to incorporate its microdisplays into their applications has enabled ForthDD™ to develop first-hand knowledge of the markets to which its technology is best suited. This commercially focused approach to applications design has extended ForthDD's reputation for highly skilled technical support, utilising its expertise in design, development, production in optical, electrical and mechanical engineering. ForthDD™ has a large team of graduate and PhD qualified engineers and a global customer base.

In September, 2004, ForthDD™ (then called CRLO Displays Ltd.) raised a Series A financing round of $19 million led by Amadeus Capital Partners and Doughty Hanson Technology Ventures.
