QPC Lasers to Demonstrate High Power
Red-Green-Blue Laser for
Portable Consumer Electronics at Display Week 2008
Company to Exhibit and Host Private Demonstrations of its Ultra Compact
Red-Green-Blue Chip-based Lasers for Miniature Projectors
SYLMAR, CA – May 13, 2008 -- QPC Lasers, Inc. (OTCBB: QPCI) “QPC,” a world leader in the design and manufacture of high brightness, high power semiconductor lasers for the consumer electronics, industrial, defense, and medical markets, today announced that it will exhibit at the Society of Information (SID) Display Week 2008 in booth 659 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA and will host private demonstrations of its high power miniature prototype BrightLase® Red-Green-Blue “RGB” laser. Leveraging QPC’s unique semiconductor technology, the laser is designed for high resolution miniature projectors in the 100 lumens output region for portable handheld consumer electronics.
QPC’s fully integrated RBG laser offers advantages to consumer electronics manufacturers including expanded color gamut for an exceptionally bright visual experience, low power consumption, an ultra compact footprint, and is designed for low cost high volume manufacture. QPC offers visible laser technologies designed to be compatible with the leading micro-display technology including LCOS, scanning micro-mirrors, DLP and LCD.
“Advances in electronics technology provide hand-held consumer products such as PDAs with incredible computing and communications power,” said Dr. Jeffrey Ungar, President and CEO of QPC Lasers, Inc. “Unfortunately, the small size and poor resolution of typical 2” display screens makes their use for applications such as Internet browsing, games and video sharing a frustrating experience,” said Dr. Ungar.
“Mating consumer electronics with powerful projectors powered by compact, powerful Red-Green-Blue lasers offers a way around this bottleneck,” said Dr. Ungar. “We believe that our BrightLase® technology is a vehicle uniquely suited to making this dream a reality, and expect the exceptional brightness, efficiency, compactness and low cost of these lasers to provide compelling advantages in displays for PDAs, games, laptops, automobiles, and aircraft,” concluded Ungar.
QPC recently announced an exclusive $12 million Laser TV development and production contract (see announcement dated November 30, 2007) for RGB BrightLase® Lasers for use in DLP and LCOS. QPC previously demonstrated its green laser based on frequency doubling of its proprietary BrightLase® single-mode laser technology (see announcement, September 18, 2007.)
