This portfolio covers a microLED display technology that allows an entire display to function as a camera without interfering with the display pixels or requiring a separate camera. A display using this technology has no need for a separate camera element, allows for true bezel-less display, improves touch, fingerprint, and gesture sensing, and removes the need for capacitive sensing. Additionally, this technology eliminates the gaze parallax effect in videoconferencing and allows the camera to function as a plenoptic camera.

A display using this technology can be used in: mobile phones, video conferencing, digital signage, televisions, computer monitors, tablets, wearables, and thin flexible displays.

MicroLED is an emerging display technology and is expected to grow rapidly in the next several years.
