Oculus acquires Irish display maker InfiniLED

Monday 17 October 2016 | 13:13 CET | News
Facebook-owned Oculus VR has acquired Irish low-power display maker InfiniLED for an undisclosed amount, reports the Irish Times. Cork-based InfiniLED is an offshoot of the Tyndall National Institute, a research hub specialising in photonics and nanoelectronics. It develops ILED (inorganic LED, also known as MicroLED) display technology, which it says consumes 20-40 times less power than normal LCD and OLED displays and is capable of producing four times more light with better contrast and colour range.
