Matthew Brennesholtz (Insight Media) – Projection & Lasers

Ilyas Khayrullin (eMagin) - OLED

John Kymissis & Vincent Lee (Columbia University) – I-Zone

The I (for Innovation) Zone was set up for small start-ups to be able to be present on the SID trade show floor without a large investment in a full booth.  Lots of cool technology!  The projection talk will include information on a visit to Laser Light Engines in Salem, New Hampshire to see their laser cinema projectors.  More cool stuff!  OLED HMDs that make your eyes glow like a bad horror move!  And who knows what our Fearless Leader, George Melnik himself, Chairman of the Mid Atlantic Chapter, is going to tell us about 3D?  But 3D is always cool!  Be there or be square!
