updated 09:48 pm EDT, Mon October 14, 2013

Concept intended to simplify further head-mounted device advancement

Digital imaging solutions vendor OmniVision Technologies today announced OmniGlass, a new reference design that combines a wearable display and a camera module for the wearable electronics market. The OmniGlass reference design combines OmniVisionšs new low-power liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) solution, which displays 720p high-definition video, with the OVP921, a companion chip that provides image processing support and simplifies system design.

The OmniGlass reference design is a complete optical head-mounted display (OHMD), equipped with a four-megapixel autofocus camera that delivers 720p HD video. The device's image processor is capable of supporting various wireless connections, including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and enables on-screen display (OSD) features for augmented-reality applications.

The OVP921 companion chip provides performance without the need for external memory or an image processor. It has built-in keystone correction, frame rate conversion, video input scaling, interface to LED controller, and an embedded microcontroller. The OVP921 can accept video data from three different signal inputs: 24-bit RGB, the MIPI standard, or USB.

A prototype of OmniGlass is currently available for demonstrations, and a development kit is available for customer sampling upon request. The OVP2200 is currently in the sampling stage, with volume production expected to begin during the second quarter of 2014.
