Sony LMX-001 holographic waveguide display to create customised augmented reality solutions with monochrome HMI


LMX-001 holographic waveguide display for professional solutions 

The LMX-001 holographic waveguide display allows companies to develop customised hardware and software, for use cases that require high precision and quality. 

The LMX-001 displays clear graphics and text directly in the field of view of the user. The unit consists of an optical engine that renders the monochrome green graphics, and a holographic waveguide glass plate projecting images in front of the eye.
