As a Finalist in Technology Innovation, Kopin Hopes to Strike Gold

The company has been commended for innovation in mobility for the Golden-I mobile computing headset.

Kopin Corporation, one of the largest U.S. manufacturers of micro-displays for consumer, industrial and military applications, has been named a Recognized Innovator finalist by the Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) at the Technology Services World conference in Las Vegas.

The company was named a finalist in the Innovation in Mobility category for its Golden-i Mobile Computing Headset.

The Recognized Innovator Awards have become highly regarded in the service industry, representing the only independently judged awards program that recognizes innovation in technology services products and service offerings documented with customer case studies of measurable business value and results.

As an awards finalist, Kopin demonstrated real-world examples of how their mobile technology or services have been used to extend the reach of a service organization, streamlining activities and lowering operational costs.

"Golden-i is being developed to be the world's first hands-free mobile-computing communications system to help enterprises improve the safety, efficiency, and productivity of their workforce," said Jeffrey Jacobsen, Kopin Senior Advisor to CEO and Golden-i Program Manager. "TSIA's recognition of Golden-i's contribution to the field of mobility is a testament to its unique capabilities and endless possibilities it provides to businesses."

As a lightweight mobile computing headset, Golden-i provides hands-free, wireless remote control of multiple devices (PCs, mobile phones, industrial equipment, company servers, etc.) on-demand and enhances cloud computing environments. Golden-i offers wireless access to virtually all information and can maintain multiple 15-inch virtual display screens spatially so the user can switch to a different screen by a simple head motion. Golden-i can also send and receive HD streaming video real-time over Bluetooth 2.1 EDR, WiFi or cellular.

"Kopin has clearly demonstrated that it understands the value of mobility and can strategically partner with technology service organizations to provide them with innovative tools that improve employee performance, enhance employee safety and contribute to group collaboration and remote shared experience," said John Ragsdale, vice president of technology research for TSIA."

Recognized Innovator finalists were selected by a panel of judges, including industry experts and TSIA members. As a finalist, Kopin will be featured in TSIA research and conference attendees can learn more about the company's services during Innovation Tours that will be conducted at the conference on Tuesday, October 19. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, October 20.
