Power Technology Inc., Honored by Laser Focus World 2018 Innovators Awards Program

Little Rock, AR – OEM laser module manufacturer, Power Technology, announced today that its Illumina Cinema Laser System was awarded a Silver Innovator's Award by the judges of the annual Laser Focus World program. 

The Illumina Laser System replaces Xenon lamps with RGB laser illumination. According to Power Technology, the greatest challenge currently facing projector manufacturers is delivering more brightness on the screen at an economical price. The limitations of xenon bulbs have contributed to the decay of audience attendance and screen size growth. With 20X the lifespan of bulbs, the Illumina Cinema Laser System eliminates the continual bulb replacement expenses while maintaining 80% of original brightness over 10 years. This saves thousands of dollars over a projector’s lifetime, while providing brighter and more engaging experiences to a greater number of ticket-buying customers.

“While customer satisfaction is the ultimate arbiter of a product’s value, being recognized by our peers in the photonics industry is a great honor,” said Walter Burgess, VP of Engineering and Sales at Power Technology. “It reflects the hard work and expertise of our engineers in creating innovative and market-read lasers.”

Alan Bergstein, publisher of Laser Focus World (www.laserfocusworld.com), said "This prestigious program allows Laser Focus World to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products and services in the photonics and optoelectronics industry. Our 2018 Honorees are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact." 

The Innovators Awards are judged based on the following criteria:

  • Innovation 
  • Value to the User 
  • Sustainability
  • Meeting a Defined Need 
  • Collaboration 
  • Impact 

The 2018 Laser Focus World Innovators Awards Honorees are featured in the May Issue of Laser Focus World magazine as well as on www.laserfocusworld.com.
