LONDON MicroOLED SA (Grenoble, France), a spin-off from the CEA-Leti research institute there, has added a high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) to its high-definition microdisplays allowing them to connect to the Texas Instruments OMAP platform.
With appropriately prepared content the interface allows 3D video or 3D gaming to be accessed using specially-designed video glasses. MicroOLED has used a single HDMI connection to the mobile phone, but can carry both left and right standard definition (SD) video streams to the microdisplays embedded within the glasses.
The MicroOLED microdisplay uses OLED-on-CMOS technolog. The HDMI interface allows two 873 x 500 pixels videos, which supports DVD-quality 3D content on their video-on-demand portals for mobile applications.
"By integrating our energy-efficient microdisplay into 3D video glasses and this 3D interface, we are enabling a full range of new mobile entertainment applications ranging from 3D gaming to HD mobile video," said Eric Marcellin-Dibon, said CEO of MicroOLED, in a statement issued by CEA-Leti.
"TI is enthusiastic about the capabilities that MicroOLED's technology enables on the leading OMAP platform," said Elias Belmand, director for TI’s wireless business in Europe, in the same statement.
