Syndiant, maker of high resolution microdisplays for pico projectors, Foryou Multimedia Electronics Co. Ltd., and Hong Kong’s Astri R&D Labs have produced an LED pico projector that is less than 4cc in volume and 6 mm in height, which is suitable for embedding into cell phones and digital still cameras.

Using Syndiant’s SYL2030 panel, which offers WVGA resolution (854x480 pixel) in a tiny 6 mm package, Foryou and Astri designed an embeddable LED pico projector for handheld consumer devices.
“We are pleased to expand our relationship with Foryou and Astri,” said Mark Harward, CEO of Syndiant. “The SYL2030 member of our VueG8 family of pico projector panels really provides a viewing gateway that enables a large screen experience from hand-held devices such as cell phones and digital still cameras.
With true WVGA resolution, this panel provides excellent image quality with vivid saturated colors, while delivering the low cost and power efficiency to be an ideal solution for these very high volume embedded applications.”
“Our initial product announcement with Syndiant’s 1024x600 pixel SYL2061 at CES was very well received, and we are pleased to announce our second endeavor with both Syndiant and Astri,” said Jefeng Liu, marketing manager at Foryou. “We expect our product to ship before the end of 2010.”
“[Astri] is excited to see the commercialization of our joint efforts and to achieve significant milestones on additional pico projector development projects that we are hard at work on,” said Kenny Chan, business development manager at Astri.
