Epson begins volume production of its latest Ultimicron panel
Epson today announced that it has begun volume production of its latest Ultimicron panel. These high-temperature polysilicon (HTPS) TFT color panels bring to life the electronic viewfinders used in mid- to high-end digital interchangeable lens system cameras. Measuring just 0.48 of an inch diagonally, the latest in the Ultimicron series offers XGA (1024 x 768) resolution in red, green and blue for a total of 2.36 megapixels. The new panel is equal in size to a 0.47-inch SVGA panel, but offers higher resolution.
Epson has increased the surface luminance to 520 cd/m2, allowing photographers sufficient visibility in any environment, from the brightest sunlight to the darkness of evening. The Ultimicron series is positioned to meet growing demand among camera enthusiasts of all levels and abilities for superb quality electronic viewfinders. The new panel will be exhibited at Epson’s booth at CP+ 2013 in Yokohama, Japan, from January 31 to February 3.
