  1. Can you please address my questions regarding direct green laser performance, as applies to those that will be available in 2H 2011? I have asked a few times for the past month. Specifially, I am interested in:

    When the direct green lasers become available in 2H 2011, what are the performance expectations for these? If the current synthetic green lasers produce nearly 100mW power at ~530nm with ~9% WPE, what can we expect from the direct green lasers? It seems these can support up to 20 lumen output at reasonable power draw.

    The “best” specs I can find are around 50mW and WPEs below 3% at shorter wavelengths. These shorter wavelenghts will really hamper the perceived brightness of the green light. Taking this into consideration, the performance of the initial direct green lasers would be below the current synthetic lasers.

    Can you clarify this? Is size and cost the only advantages we should expect for the direct green lasers coming on-line in 2011? Do you expect additional improvements prior to manufacturing quantities being available in 2011? I realize performance will improve over time (2012 and beyond). But, for 2011 will power draw and brightness be limited for the direct green lasers?

    What are the projections for the output of NionCom’s Vision and Arrow products in the near future?

    Who will discuss the interactive projection technology – NionCom or Microvision?

    Will both the Vision and Arrow be released for sale in the 2nd Quarter?

    What’s up with the US DARPA contracts on the military glasses?

    What’s up with the HUD sales coming online?

  3. Martin Hillerby Says:

    Tiffany….can you tell us why your conference call is going to report on “preliminary” results for Q4 and full year 2010 and not complete finished results? This is the first time you will have reported this “preliminary” way isn’t it?

  4. Dwayne Says:

    And the gaming gun – with Intel, etc. – when will it be available?

  5. John Says:

    Hey guys,

    I couldn’t help but notice that the formatting of the press release headline was different from previous ones, as it didn’t specifically state “4th quarter conference call”. Because the earnings are “preliminary”, does that mean that there will be another conference call again in a couple weeks?

  6. Lyle Says:

    More visibility to Pioneer relationship and agreement
    New organizational structure
    Staffing levels and re-assignments
    Cost cutting [and cost sharing] measures
    Current and new funding source(s) and structure
    Better visibility to Diode Green Laser program and role of SHG laser going forward
    Inventory write-downs and losses
    HEMP OEM coming out party
    New products in the pipe line

  7. Marty Says:

    What about the laser safety issue? Why hasn’t Microvision given numbers for the brightness limit?

  8. Ryan Says:

    What is the ETA for 720P high definition? We know the 720p PicoP has been demoed in the Tuatara gaming gun, which suggests the SHG green laser can handle the bandwidth. Does this mean you are on track for the targeted 2nd half of 2011? Or has 720P been shelved until diode green lasers are available?


  9. Dwayne Says:

    A poster on Yahoo had this question, and it interests me as well:

    Why has the backlog dropped from $21M to $13M?? when they haven’t generate more than $2M in revenue in the last 2 quarters!! ”

    Shouldn’t the backlog drop be seen in a revenue generation ($8 million plus positive)?

  10. Tom S. Says:

    I would also be very interested in your response to Paul Marganski’s questions regarding
    power draw and brightness for the direct green lasers in 2011. Please respond. Thank you!!!

  11. Dwayne Says:

    Also, nothing was mentioned on the gaming gun. What is the progress with it?
