Omnivision Announces OmniGlass Reference Design

PR Newswire: Omnivision announces OmniGlass reference design that combines a wearable display and a camera module: an ultra-compact and low-power OVP2200 liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) solution, a 4MP AF camera module with 720p HD video, and the OVP921, a companion chip that provides image processing, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi support.

A prototype of OmniGlass is currently available for demonstrations, and a development kit is available for customer sampling upon request. The OVP2200 is currently sampling, with volume production expected to begin during Q2 2014.

    1. There is no evidence that WiFi, Bluetooth, or cellphone transmissions cause any kind of diseases. That's despite bombarding rats with much higher doses 24 hours a day for years and large amounts of human epidemiological data (no increases in brain diseases seen with the rise of wireless technology).
