Microvision, Inc., a global leader in innovative ultra-miniature projection display and image-capture products for mobility applications, announced today that it has secured an initial purchase order for a global consumer electronics OEM to private-label its PicoP display engine-based accessory laser pico projector. This purchase order is tied to a marketing and distribution agreement Microvision announced recently with an Asian distribution partner who also has purchased Microvision’s branded product, the SHOWWX, for distribution within the Asia-Pacific region.
The Asian distribution partner and global consumer electronics OEM are both planning their own marketing launch activities and will provide specific details regarding timing and locations for initial product availability in the near future. Microvision has begun shipping units to fulfill both customers. “We are extremely pleased to receive our first purchase order to private label the PicoP based accessory laser pico projector,” said Alexander Tokman, President and CEO of Microvision. “Having a global consumer electronics player, which is targeting a new mobile communication device strategy, attach their name to our product strongly validates the performance and quality of our first laser projector offering."
"On the heels of announcing our first shipments of the SHOWWX laser pico projector, and receiving the purchase order from an international distributor, this is another significant milestone in our go-to-market strategy.” Microvision’s SHOWWX Laser Pico Projector, uses the revolutionary PicoP display engine that delivers colorful, vivid, large images that create a truly “big screen” viewing experience from a device about the size of a mobile phone.
The SHOWWX can project images from 12” to 150” inches across, depending on the ambient lightning conditions, without the user ever having to adjust focus. This pico projector is a simple plug-n-play device for people on-the-go who want to spontaneously view and share multimedia applications and programs such as mobile TV, movies, photos, user-generated content such as YouTube, presentations and more with their friends, family or business associates.
Users can seamlessly plug Microvision’s pocket-sized pico projector into their portable media players, mobile phones, notebooks and other portable mobile media devices with TV-Out or VGA functionality.
