Kopin® Corporation, a leading provider of high-resolution microdisplays for Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR), announced that it is supplying RealWear, the leading provider of assisted reality solutions for frontline industrial workers, with the newly updated Golden Pearl display module for RealWear’s recently launched RealWear Navigator™ 500 wearable device.

The updated Golden Pearl features a 0.32”, 24-bit full color, high-brightness LCD microdisplay for easy outdoor/sunlight use and comfortable long-term viewing.

“With the launch of the HMT-1, RealWear quickly became the gold standard for advanced assisted reality head-mounted display systems for industrial use,” stated Dr. John C.C. Fan, CEO of Kopin Corporation. “RealWear Navigator 500 raises the bar further, enabling hands-free work with sophisticated visual support. It’s a very comprehensive solution to enhance worker productivity. Kopin’s power-efficient, high-brightness display module is designed to support full-shift use by providing bright, clear images and information in any lighting condition, including full sunlight, and can be used for long durations without eye strain or fatigue.”

“We’ve had a strategic relationship with Kopin since our inception,” said Andrew Chrostowski, Chairman and CEO of RealWear. “When we launched RealWear Navigator 500 with its revolutionary modular design, it made perfect sense to launch using Kopin’s next generation offering. Kopin’s deep expertise in microdisplays and optics, including capabilities across multiple microdisplay technologies, has enabled our team to design our human-centric products to exceed expectations of our customers, now and into the future.”
