Genoa Color Technologies teams with MicroDisplay and Uneed Systems to show first single-panel multi-primary LCOS RPTV
Las Vegas, Nev., Consumer Electronics Show-January 6, 2005- Genoa Color Technologies (booth 20666, South Hall 1), MicroDisplay Corporation and Uneed Systems have combined resources to create the worlds’ first public demonstration of a true 1920x1080 HD resolution Rear Projection Television with Multi-Primary Colors to achieve color gamut and brightness points never possible before.
The demonstration at 2005 International CES also showcases two 43-inch rear projection high-definition (1280 x 720 pixel) televisions manufactured by Uneed Systems and featuring single-panel LCOS (Liquid Crystal On Silicon) panels and related products supplied by MicroDisplay Corporation. To highlight the display-enhancing capabilities of Genoa’s technology, one set features the unique ColorPeak™ system and the other conventional RGB (red, blue, green). The TV using ColorPeak shows a 20 percent larger color gamut and a 30 percent increase in brightness.
“So that the industry can fully realize the effectiveness of Genoa’s ColorPeak technology, it must be demonstrated with the best state-of-the-art equipment available,” said Ilan Ben-David, Genoa’s founder and CEO. “We are proud to collaborate with MicroDisplay Corporation and Uneed Systems to present this important side-by-side comparison.”
“It has been a pleasure to work with Genoa’s team and products to complete the electronics and optical work in advance of system adoption by our RPTV customers” commented Sandeep Gupta, MicroDisplay’s President and CEO. “The ColorPeak™ performance enhancements will enable our customers to quickly and easily enhance their HD RPTV product offerings while still utilizing the cost effective single panel LCOS technology from MicroDisplay Corporation.”
