VALENCIA, Calif., July 22 -- Wavien, Inc. today announces that its patented Premien LED projector technology produces output in excess of 200 lumens using a single white, 50 W LED. The output efficiency of Premien technology, which is currently available for portable projector applications, is up to two times higher than the competing LED technologies. Wavien continues to optimize the system performance of projectors using Premien technology and expects that next-generation performance will increase to over 300 lumens.
In addition to improved screen brightness, the Premien design reduces the number of costly optical and other components used in conventional LED projector configurations, resulting in lower manufacturing costs. Projector manufacturers which currently use standard arc lamps can adopt Premien technology with minimal changes in product design, allowing for easy entry into the rapidly growing LED projector market. Users of Premien technologies will also directly benefit from the huge advances being made by LED manufacturers producing white LEDs for the general lighting market.
Dr. Kenneth Li, President and CEO of Wavien, Inc., who is also the inventor of the latest Premien LED recycling technologies, said: "The ability to display and share information from portable media players among family and friends at any time and any place has been the consumers' dream, but up to now the price of portable projectors has been too high. Wavien's Premien technology now allows projector manufacturers the opportunity to introduce low-cost, high-performance portable projectors, which are the main driving forces for mass adoption in this market.
"The same projectors, based on the Premien advantages, are also a very attractive improvement option for invigorating the home theatre, mobile presentation and small-office markets," Dr. Li added.
