HYPOLED: High-Performance OLED-Microdisplays for Mobile Multimedia HMD and Projection Applications

This is a technology or research stand, located in Zone R2 - ICT inside. Stand number: R2-07

The HYPOLED project is developing a new micro-display technology creating very small displays that are viewed under optical magnification.

Mobile communication has changed the way we live. Handsets are becoming more video oriented, but their small size is restricting the display size. High-definition wearable virtual displays will overcome this limitation while also enabling hands-free viewing. HYPOLED is the ‘high-performance OLED-microdisplays for mobile multimedia HMD displays and micro-projection applications’ project. OLEDs are organic light-emitting devices. This exhibit presents the HYPOLED project which aims to develop the next-generation virtual display platform using novel electronic and optical component technologies. The new displays will combine a high-quality 'virtual image' similar in size to a desktop monitor, with very low power consumption.
