Optical polymers


ZEONEX Cyclo Olefin Polymers (COPs), optical polymers for molded precision imaging lenses, are featured in the in AvegantTM Glyph - a premium Mediawear personal theater that debuted to critical acclaim at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show. The Glyph will be on display at the ZEONEX exhibit at SPIE Photonics West 2016 in San Francisco, 13-18 February.

ZEONEX lenses combine glass-like optical characteristics with the design freedom of a molded plastic. These characteristics, combined with the lenses' ultra-low haze and ultra-low moisture absorption, make them an excellent fit for the Glyph's patented retinal imaging technology, which uses advanced optics and microscopic mirrors to project images directly into the wearer's eyes, recreating natural sight without the need for a screen.

The Glyph personal theater is designed with lightweight portability, rich audio, and precise video. Its sophisticated, understated and elegant design delivers audio or visuals plus audio in a format that goes anywhere with the user, providing a distinct advantage over other head-mounted displays.
