OLED display firm signs deal in Japan
MicroEmissive Displays has signed a deal with Kaga Components, one of Japan’s biggest electronic component distributors and manufacturers, which provides the Edinburgh-based displays company with its first sales channel in the country.
Kaga will provide sales and marketing support to the consumer electronics design community throughout Japan for MED’s microdisplay products. It will also incorporate MED’s P-OLED microdisplay into its proprietary electronic viewfinder (EVF) modules to create new products for the Japanese digital camera market.
“The agreement with Kaga represents a significant step forward for MED. The EVF market in digital cameras is a significant opportunity for our product and we look forward to developing a strong relationship with a partner of the calibre and market presence of Kaga,” said MED chief executive Bill Miller.
According to the company, the device is applicable for the EVF market, as it can dispense with inefficient and bulky backlighting resulting in a smaller more efficient module.
