Microvision Demonstrates Laser Based Micro-Projection Displays for Mobile Devices at Society of Information Display Annual Conference

REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 6, 2006--Microvision, Inc. (Nasdaq:MVIS - News) announced today that it will be showcasing at the Society of Information Display's (SID) annual conference in San Francisco, June 6 - 8, 2006, several exciting scanned beam display products and concepts including a demonstrator of its miniature projection display, called PicoP. The company will be exhibiting in booth number 214. PicoP, based on the company's Integrated Photonics Module(TM) (IPM) display platform, is being designed to be embedded inside portable mobile devices such as cell phones and PDAs to add a "big screen" projection experience to mobile applications. The company expects that its OEM customers may also design the IPM capability into emerging industrial, consumer, automotive, healthcare, and military display products.

"Microvision's IPM display platform is unique in many respects. It is expected to yield the ultimate solution -- a large image in a small package," said Alexander Tokman, Microvision CEO. "Unlike most matrix-display technologies, such as a LCD or DLP, we modulate laser light temporally and spatially using a single tiny vibrating silicon mirror to produce an image. The inherent advantages of this display platform include spectacular image quality, small form factor and low power. For example, because PicoP is using a collimated beam of laser light to produce a full-color, high resolution and contrast image it exhibits an "infinite" depth of focus. As a result, this product will not require a projection lens which further reduces its form factor and cost. The overall package can be very compact and driven by low power. A small form factor balanced with low power requirements is essential to portable handset manufacturers to enable personal projection applications.

"Microvision's IPM display platform is expected to support a variety of large market opportunities in addition to personal projection displays, including wearable displays for military, industrial, and consumer applications as well as automotive head-up displays," concluded Tokman.
