Consumer Electronics Show (CES) — DigiLens Inc., an innovator in
holographic waveguide display technology for extended reality (XR),
unveiled today its new Crystal50 waveguide lens at the Consumer
Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, showing a 50-degree diagonal,
full-color, low-cost waveguide lens.
“Crystal50 is a significant step forward for the head-worn category as
it enables a wide field-of-view in a small form-factor and can be
manufactured at a cost lower than any other waveguides on the market
today,” said DigiLens CEO Chris Pickett. “This continues to demonstrate
DigiLens’ ability to clear the highest of technological bars and build
best-in-class optical solutions that are lightweight and bright enough
for indoor/outdoor use for both consumer and enterprise XR use cases.”
The Crystal50 — when mounted into the DigiLens Iris reference
design, an XR headset fitted with a 720p pico projector, VSLAM head
tracker and cameras — enables a 60º binocular FOV, allowing more
opportunities for immersive XR content creation.
DigiLens’ new waveguide display breakthrough architecture allows
multiple diffractive optical structures to be multiplexed, thereby
enabling the optical path in the eyeglass-sized transparent display to
be integrated and compressed. This allows the field-of-view to be
widened compared to competitor approaches while maintaining a compact
lens form factor.
DigiLens’ optical platform allows OEMs to create customizable,
cost-effective waveguide-based XR devices for both enterprise and
consumer applications. DigiLens’ optics are manufactured from a
proprietary photopolymer and low-cost holographic contact copy
manufacturing process, which is more cost-effective and scalable than
other XR wearable solutions on the market.
DigiLens is a leader in holographic waveguides used for augmented
extended reality (XR) displays. The company has developed a patented
optical platform and photopolymer technology that delivers best-in-class
solutions using a unique, low-cost contact-copy manufacturing process.
DigiLens enables OEM partners to design and build XR-enabled devices for
the global automobile, enterprise, consumer, avionics, and military
industries. Based in Sunnyvale, CA, DigiLens investors include industry
leaders UDC Ventures, Samsung Ventures, Niantic Labs, Sony Innovation
Fund, Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation, Continental AG, and
more. For more information about the company, please visit www.digilens.com.
