Sharp Observer Esekla Responds to Sharp Observer Brendan Rose Discussing Whether AUO is a Competitive Threat to eMagin (From Seeking Alpha)

Excellent questions, Brendan! I've covered EMAN elsewhere and like the work you've done on the company. As you imply, full answers to your questions go way beyond an SA comment, so I'll reach out to you privately.
The brief answers are that I don't think this has much impact on eMagin, which seems to be approaching an inflection point. I don't think its so easy to build into micro-displays and then there's always questions about IP. eMagin is looking like the clear, and far better, successor to the just introduced models like Occulus, from what I've seen.
As for wet manufacturing, I think the hold up so far has been with process-related stuff, since water and oxygen are lethal to phOLED materials. I've covered this briefly in my Pro OLED articles on SA, and in more detail elsewhere.
Thanks again for great questions!

Goldman Sachs Has Four Charts Showing the Huge Potential in Virtual and Augmented Realit

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-01-13/goldman-sachs-has-four-charts-showing-the-huge-potential-in-virtual-and-augmented-reality

you are going to have to choke down your bagel and chug your Starbucks to make the Needham Conference tomorrow, please hold all tickets, THERE HAS BEEN A TIME CHANGE!!!

from 11:20 AM to 8:40 AM

This is a typically eNigmatic statement from the Oracle of Bellevue

"Don't scream, it's just me, Mark Zuckerberg"

“This licensing agreement confirms that our immersive headset technology is unique in the VR market,” said Andrew G. Sculley, CEO of eMagin Corporation. “Our immersive headset has four times the resolution of alternative cellphone based VR headsets and provides a more realistic, “screen-door”- free image. This agreement also demonstrates that eMagin’s OLED microdisplays are the right choice for VR applications, giving eMagin the opportunity to jump into the market with its highest resolution microdisplay offering.”

Does the statement "OLED microdisplays are the right choice" imply that the "unknown company" had previously made a wrong choice?" That statement seems to refer back to the "Unique" of the opening sentence. It could be read to indicate that the "unknown company" and its CHOICE to use microdisplays instead of large panel displays is authoritative enough to establish  these devices as the benchmark, the most desirable for VR headset applications. If it is "wrong choice, right choice" than it leads back to Oculus, Oculus is struggling. Luckey's recent statement that new iterations of Oculus will be rolled out in suceeding generations like Cell Phones sounds to me like they know they are welded to a design that all but guarantees that a significant percentage of users will get sick using it. Another recent statement from Luckey "Please" designers "No Jump Scares".

AMD's Lisa Su explains how AMD will survive and yes, even thrive in 2016 (Last Paragraph)Just come out and say it Ms. Su, "WE have a superior HMD in the pipeline"

http://www.pcworld.com/article/3020172/ces/amds-lisa-su-explains-how-amd-will-survive-and-yes-even-thrive-in-2016.html

Little worried that eMagin's PR noted that their iHMD "helps prevent" nausea, "helps" doesn't mean eliminates neccesarily, ambiguity.

Virtual reality making you sick?

Now I know I put that customer somewhere, now where is it.

Sensics CEO, Yuval Boger, is looking for smaller displays but NOT eMagin OLED Displays, Read his reply to Anonymous in the Comment Section, a $10k Price Point Would Relegate the iHMD to the Most Demanding Applications, Do You Buy His Premises?

Virtual Reality - a new perspective for creative industries

It can be assumed from this exchange that John Damen is NOT an eMagin Partner..CES starts Wednesday and the assumption is no light will escape from the Black Hole of Bellevue.

2016 : A Pivotal Year For AMD, Nvidia, PC Gaming And VR

VR sales data we can count on



If eMagin was to partner with one of the two available manufactures of high end graphics cards which company is more likely? NVIDIA with whom eMagin had a shaky partnership which ended badly (NVIDIA dropped driver support for the Z800 when they attempted  to develop their own HMD) or AMD? (Engineering Director Chen and Lead Display guy Glen, pic above, that's right Chen and Glen at AMD both have been pictured demoing eMagin's iHMD).
