Eliminating the Screen Door Effect

  • Current OLED manufacturing processes require high alignment tolerances due to issues with the thickness and stability of the metal masks
  • Around 80% of an OLED display is currently black (20% fill factor)
  • In VR, this black space shows up as a visible "screen door" that can distract from the user experience.
  • Orthogonal can increase the fill factor to as much as 80%, creating a smooth visual experience for the user

Orthogonal Can Take High Resolution to the Next Level

  • OLED displays used in VR are limited to the same resolutions as mobile phones, around 550ppi
  • Even this resolution is "enhanced" with clever pixel layouts
  • Display resolutions of 2000ppi or more will be needed to achieve a "retina" display experience for VR users
  • Orthogonal technology can achieve 3000ppi or greater using high resolution photolithography
