“Compound Photonics is the biggest and most capable photonics and projector manufacturer that you have most likely never heard of,” declared Tim Anderson, the company’s Vice President of Product Management in his Display Summit presentation. “We are the company that has succeeded in introducing the world to RGB solid state laser based technology, making it finally possible to manufacture a 3000 lumen lamp-less native 4K projector that rivals the performance delivered by today’s solid state displays.”
The use of RGB laser technology eliminates lamps and creates a huge new colour gamut to work with. It also enables balancing the colour output of each colour channel to achieve a perfect white point.
“Projector customers around the world want to be able to project a huge image in full daylight and still have an outstanding image,” Anderson said. “Our engineers have developed specific algorithms that use an expanded colour gamut made possible by RGB laser technology. These algorithms combat ambient light and dramatically improve colour contrast.”
Anderson says Compound Photonics offer capabilities ranging from tiny, bright, full HD laser light engines for mobile devices, an embedded 1080P projector that is less than two cubic centimetres in size, IR and Green lasers, head-up car displays, near-eye augmented reality, and gesture recognition. “We are a team of over 300 scientists, technologists, software engineers, and marketers that are committed to changing the way consumers interact with technology. Our corporate directory is a veritable ‘who’s who’ of technology and includes veterans of IBM, InFocus, Epson, NEC, Philips, Pixelworks and Microsoft,” he said.
