Dispelix, the leader in see-through waveguide displays for augmented reality (AR) & mixed reality (MR) wearables, and AAC Technologies Holdings Inc. (“AAC”, HKEx: 2018) (AAC), the world-leading solutions provider for smart devices, announce a strategic partnership to ensure the AR & MR wearables industry has access to the highest quality see-through waveguide displays in the world.
With the announcement, AAC becomes one of Dispelix’s strategic partners for mass manufacturing of Dispelix's see-through waveguide displays to support the growing global demand associated with the AR and MR wearables markets. The companies are working together to provide the highest quality waveguide displays designed to deliver industry-leading form factor, image quality, and clarity performance for all customers globally.
The win-win partnership brings together Dispelix’s unique waveguide technology and AAC’s unparalleled expertise in wafer-level optics mass manufacturing.
Antti Sunnari, CEO of Dispelix, said: “We’re delighted to announce our partnership with AAC, one of the very few mass manufacturers of high-precision miniaturized optical components for high-volume consumer applications. AAC’s proven expertise in ramping up, scaling, and efficiently operating novel and highly complex wafer-level manufacturing processes for mass customized optical components adds a completely new dimension to our offering. The partnership will ensure strength & competitive edge for customers of both companies with highly manufacturable waveguide display solutions featuring unmatched performance and quality. Any organization developing an AR or MR wearable understands the quality of the display is critical, because without a high-quality display their wearable will be a failure in the eyes of consumers.”
