February 12, 2006 One of the presenters at this week’s DEMO conference was Digislide, a company with a micro-optical engine named Digismart that allows 11-inch by 17-inch full-colour images to be projected from a range of hand held devices, including cell phones, Notebooks, GPS units, MP3/MP4 players, smartcard readers and gaming devices. Digislide’s patented miniature projection systems could prove to be one of the enabling technologies that will shape the future form factor of handheld technology – one of the “missing links” that could enable small objects to offer large screen viewing. Digislide is seeking industry alliance partners and licensees for its miniature projection systems which has the potential to be used in a number of US$100 billion a year markets (as above) and offer a unique differentiation, enabling them to not only retain but expand their market share by offering consumers instant access to large scale images from hand held devices.
“This projection capability is able to replace portability with mobility, fragility with ruggedization, a small image device’s screen with a detailed 11x17 inch wall projected image, and delayed display with immediate access, for a fast growing worldwide market,” said Luceille Outhred, CEO of Digislide. “Digislide has a suite of technologies available that fit a variety of projection needs. We look forward to providing a peek at that future during our DEMO 06 presentation.”
“Digislide represents one of the most exciting emerging technologies in the industry—with fascinating new applications appearing everyday,” said Chris Shipley, the Executive Producer of DEMO 06.
