Flat-panel-display maker FED Corp. today changed its name to eMagin Corp.
Susan Jones, executive vice president of the company, based in Hopewell Junction, N.Y., said the name is pronounced "imagine" and is intended to represent a new focus on organic LED (OLED) flat-panel technology.
Under the eMagin name, the company will produce OLED-on-silicon microdisplays for camera viewfinders, cell phones, Internet handset devices, GPS map viewers, and display headsets for electronic games, portable DVD players, and wearable computers. The company licensed the OLED technology from Eastman Kodak Co., and claims to be the first U.S. designer to demonstrate a 300,000-pixel display.
The OLED product line will be shown at this week's DisplayWorks and Dappcon 2000 show in San Jose.
