Prysm Launches Groundbreaking Laser Phosphor Display Technology

  • Prysm announced the public launch of its groundbreaking technology, Laser Phosphor Display (LPD). LPD is a new category of large format displays, with the lowest power consumption and environmental impact along with freeform flexibility, long-lasting performance and brilliant picture quality.
  • LPD images are created by using a laser engine to excite a phosphor screen and are the first display technologies to achieve the following benefits:
  • LPD consumes up to 75 percent less power than other display technologies. Prysm’s LPDs are made with low impact manufacturing processes and non-toxic materials. This translates into the lowest cost of ownership and carbon footprint of any large format display.
  • LPD utilizes long-life semiconductor lasers and a self-calibrating architecture to deliver uniform image quality for years of trouble free use.
  • LPD enables displays of any shape, size and resolution allowing for innovative dynamic environments.
  • LPD delivers high brightness, high resolution, high contrast and natural color content with zero motion blur.
  • “Prysm's technology addresses the key segment of large-area displays with the promise of low power operation and scalability,” said Paul Semenza, senior vice-president at DisplaySearch, the leading display market research firm. “This type of technology could open up new markets in consumer and professional applications.”
  • Founded by Amit Jain and Roger Hajjar in 2005 under the name Spudnik, Prysm’s patented LPD technology is supported by over 100 employees and leading manufacturing and component supply partners worldwide.
  • “We have spent the last 4 years developing a truly disruptive technology with a team of the best technologists in the industry,” said Amit Jain, CEO of Prysm. “LPD is generating excitement from prospective customers around the world. Although we knew that image quality would appeal to customers everywhere, we have also found that the LPD energy efficiency to be very important in every geographic market. Prysm provides regulators a proof point that one can make energy efficient displays without compromising quality or cost.”
