Clive Beech, micro-LED Applications Director at Plessey, talks to Neil Tyler about the challenges and prospects of this technology.
At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), earlier this year, Plessey unveiled augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) glasses using microLEDs and which ditched OLEDs completely.
According to Plessey, these microLEDs were able to offer 10 times the resolution, 100 times the contrast ratio, and up to 1,000 times the luminance of traditional OLEDs, all of which was achieved by the light being generated directly by the pixels themselves. They’re able to turn off entirely to create a so-called “perfect” black, which means that the overall image has a far greater sense of vibrancy and depth while power consumption is reduced.
