The objective is to develop innovative OLED displays with a resolution of 1920 × 1200 pixels at a screen size of only one inch and a frame frequency of 120 images per second. The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP will present an initial prototype at this year's European Forum for Electronic Components and Systems ( EFECS ). Additional prototypes are planned for mid-2018. The institute's industrial partners want to bring the new micro-displays to market as soon as possible.
Current VR glasses offer a much lower image resolution, despite being much larger. The first Oculus Rift version available on the market has a resolution of 1080 x 1200 pixels per panel. Other commercially available VR glasses generally use displays from the smartphone market or use the customer's own smartphone. Fraunhofer Institute FER also sees potential applications for its new display technology in augmented reality glasses and electronic camera viewfinders.
