2018 SID/DSCC Display Week Conference May 21st - May 24th, 2018 LA Convention Center
Edward Tang Co-Founder & CEO Avegant
Abstract: Enabling Mixed Reality: Lightfield Displays and Other Challenges Display technologies are some of the most limiting factors to enable the next computing paradigm of Mixed Reality. Lightfield displays are critical to solve the vergence accommodation conflicts (VAC) that we see today in head-mounted displays. Solving VAC is crucial to enable the types of applications that users envision. Additionally, increasing resolution, FoV, and reducing form factors and power are further challenges for display technologies.
Bio: Edward Tang is the visionary and cofounder behind Avegant, a next-generation mixed reality display company. Avegant has developed award-winning Retinal Imaging Technology to industry-first Lightfield mixed reality displays. They continually push the boundaries of near-eye display technologies to create new experiences for the industry. Born in Texas and raised in Taipei, Ed received his degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan, specializing in micro-electrical mechanical systems (MEMS), and joining the faculty full time researching and developing cutting-edge micro & nanofabrication technologies since 2001. Among a host of other entrepreneurial ventures, Edward founded Tang Consulting out of Ann Arbor, Michigan, where as President and CEO he worked for years developing technologies for the MEMS biotechnology industry in areas of autonomous surgical robots, implantable neuromodulators, and microfluidic drug devices, scribing over 20 patents along the way.
