Kopin(R) Corporation (NASDAQ:KOPN) , a leading developer of innovative wearable computing technologies and solutions, announced today that it has licensed certain wearable technologies and is supplying key components to the FUJITSU IoT Solution UBIQUITOUSWARE Head-Mounted Display, for enterprise customers. The HMD unit, which is based on Kopin’s latest concept system design and began sales in Japan on May 11, incorporates Kopin’s display module, optics, Voice ExtractionTM Filter (VEF) technology and software.

“We at Fujitsu are really pleased to have worked with Kopin in our Head-Mounted Display development,” said Ms. Kaoru Chujo, Vice President in charge of advanced technologies for the Ubiquitous Products Business Group, Fujitsu Limited. “We appreciate the strong support provided by Kopin’s engineers during our development process. Kopin’s concept design and engineering support facilitated a very fast development time for this product.”

“We are extremely pleased to have contributed to the industrial HMD Fujitsu has developed with our advanced display, optical, software and audio technologies,” said Dr. John C.C. Fan, Kopin’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that the combination of Kopin’s advanced HMD technology and Fujitsu’s Human-Centric technology has created a revolutionary, market leading HMD system. The Fujitsu Head-Mounted Display product has a wide range of potential business applications, such as equipment maintenance and repair, and we look forward to working with Fujitsu in exploring all of these opportunities.”

The Fujitsu Head-Mounted Display has a monocular display pod containing Kopin’s WVGA display (854 x 480 resolution), a camera, two microphones, and various sensors. The unit can be operated with a wearable keypad (included) or by voice using Kopin’s patented robust VEF Technology that enables extremely high speech recognition rates in noisy environments. The unit has rugged construction with water-resistant (IPX5/7) and dust-resistant (IP5X) ratings, so it can be used with confidence in challenging environments, including the outdoors. For infrastructure inspections or assembly work at a factory, the unit allows for hands-free task support in the form of still pictures, video, and audio for safer and more accurate execution. It also allows for remote support of trainees, allowing fewer operators on site while helping less-experienced operators improve their productivity.
