Furthering its promise of delivering revolutionary AR light engines, Avegant has introduced its latest line of products comprising the AG-30L 30º, and AG-50L 50º LED light engines. The 30º AR light engine uses proprietary illumination technology to drastically reduce engine volume and weight while keeping the efficiency and MTF intact.
The new Avegant light engine, the AG-50L, allows for a much broader field of view and a more immersive AR experience for users. Nevertheless, it still maintains the compact, light glasses form factor featured in the AG-30L.
A significant challenge for AR companies is to create stylish devices without compromising on performance and manufacturability. The new Avegant products address this challenge using the company’s proprietary optical and illumination technology. Combining such features will fuel the development of a new generation of AR glasses with an ultra-compact form factor.
The samples for Avegant’s AG-30L light engine will be available towards the end of 2021, while the AG-50L light engine will be available in early 2022. Mass production is expected to begin in 2023.
Ed Tang, CEO of Avegant, said, “Our customers have been asking us to help them enable true AR glasses for their consumers. The key to reducing weight and volume sufficiently to reach the glasses form factor is innovation in light engine technologies. Our new illumination architectures and optical designs dramatically reduce the size of LED light engines for AR.”
“With these new light engines, we solve our customers’ biggest challenges in delivering a smaller, glasses form factor in a manufacturable way. We’ve seen considerable excitement in the industry around our unique light engines because they are significantly lighter, smaller, and perform to our customers’ specifications in efficiency, resolution, and contrast,” he added.
