At SID 08, LBO will demonstrate bright, efficient miniature projection systems with a range of differentiating features that can be tailored to suit specific customer applications. The systems deliver superior image quality with in-built speckle reduction, variable resolution (WVGA to QVGA) and focus-free operation, enabling multiple use-cases to be realised by the same device. Due to the unique properties of holographic laser projection, LBO's systems also offer the option of enhanced image brightness for use in higher ambient lighting conditions.

Light Blue Optics' CEO, Dr Chris Harris said, "LBO's holographic laser projection technology meets our customers' requirements for bright, efficient miniature projection systems with superior image quality and focus-free operation. However, there is also an emerging demand for systems capable of delivering variable resolution and brightness configurations to enable new and exciting use-cases to be realised by a single device. At SID, we will demonstrate how the inherent versatility of LBO's unique technology platform meets these additional demands, opening up high-volume market opportunities and positioning us to become the world's leading supplier of miniature projection systems."
