Leading optoelectronics developer Plessey have announced their being named a Consumer Electronics Show 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Embedded Technologies category – namely for their monolithic MicroLED displays.

Such MicroLED displays, compared with incumbent technologies, deliver seven times greater light output, five times better contrast and improved resolution in AR applications.

The CES innovation awards, sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association, owner and producer of CES, are annual awards that recognise honourees across 28 product categories.

Judged by a distinguished panel of designers, engineers and members of the tech media, these prestigious innovation awards credit products and technologies based on excellence in design, functionality, consumer appeal, engineering and how the products compare with others in the market. 

Mike Lee, president of Corporate and Business Development at Plessey, said: “As the only provider of GaN-on-Silicon monolithic MicroLEDs, Plessey is about to disrupt the displays market with a technology that delivers a tangibly better consumer experience.

“At the same time, our products enable much smaller and less power-hungry devices to be produced. This is going to be as big a change as when LCDs replaced cathode ray tubes in personal computer displays.”

Plessey’s monolithic MicroLEDs will result in a new generation of augmented reality and display devices. The company’s technology will enable OEMs to manufacture products that are – not only compact enough to be worn without restricting the overall experience for users of both AR and VR applications and in heads-up displays – but also provide the necessary size, weight, power and luminance.

At CES 2019, Plessey will showcase and demonstrate its proprietary MicroLED technology at the LVCC, South Hall 1 at stand number 22048.
