3GSM World Congress CAMBRIDGE, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 9, 2006--Light Blue Optics Ltd (, developers of the revolutionary PVPro(TM) technology for miniature projectors, today announced its latest demonstrator unit, which is only 62cc in volume, and is similar in size and shape to a typical matchbox.

Projectors based on PVPro technology can be used to display images from a range of mobile devices, including laptop computers, personal media players such as the video iPod(TM), digital cameras and even mobile phones.

Light Blue Optics has developed unique laser-based projection technology, which uses computational algorithms and novel optical techniques to allow miniature lasers to display video images in real-time using the diffractive nature of laser light. This overcomes the size limitation of conventional projection techniques, allowing projectors to be smaller than ever before.

The latest monochrome 'micro-mini' version represents the third generation of the PVPro algorithms and optomechanical design. It is a crucial step in allowing the company's customers to manufacture compact projectors for use in a range of applications. A full-colour version will be available later in 2006.

Nic Lawrence, CEO, commented, "Our vision is to make it simple for people to share photos with their friends and to comfortably view mobile TV and music videos from their mobile devices. We believe that access to a large display, such as is provided by our PVPro projection technology, is key to increasing ease of use."
