Media Release, August 10, 2011 04:57pm ET : On New Display Technology Makes Your Windshield a Dashboard by Bernadine Okoro, National Science FoundationResearchers at Sun Innovations Inc. have developed an enhanced "transparent display" technology — also known as a fluorescent emissive projection system — that turns an entire glass window or windshield into a motion display panel without affecting the view through the glass. Read more here:


Dec 2010, Sun Innovations, Inc. acquired patented technology from SuperImaging,Inc. Entire intellectual properties were successfully transferred to Sun Innovations, Inc., soon after SuperImaging was dissolved. SuperImaging, Inc., angel-funded in late 2004, pioneered the transparent display technologies and developed the related intellectual properties, serving major business clients in automobiles, retail advertisements etc. In Year 2010 Sun Innovations, Inc. acquired all the Intellectual Properties of Superimaging Inc., to continuously develop and commercialize the ground-breaking transparent display and other related display technologies.  Sun Innovations, Inc. has been relentlessly focusing on turning the new display technology to great display products that serve a broad-base of clients’ need to display on their glass windows.  


Sep. 18, 2010: Launched the color transparent display with laser projectors

We launched the 1st color transparent display product in the 2010 Global Expo (Shanghai), with proprietary fluorescent color screen and a 2-wavelengths laser projector. It plays live color animations on a crystal clear glass panel.


April 9, 2010 New Dual Color MediaGlass Projector Available!
We are pleased to announce we now have dual color laser projectors for sale. We’ve previously made these available as automotive HUD development kits for automotive OEM R&D. An example of this is is seen in recent articles on GM’s driver vision enhancement/safety technology, featuring SuperImaging dual color full windshield displays. In that system, GM uses blue lines to highlight the sides of the road in fog or at night, and red lines to highlight road signs or dangers.

Both the small sized HUD TransPlay projector and the larger retail/theater MediaGlass projectors have benefited from advances in laser diode and transparent red nanoparticle technology, allowing us to substantially boost laser output and display screen brightness for our red color. This has increased our HUD film longevity by orders of magnitude, as well as image brightness due to higher projector output. Also, in alignment with our early 2009 expectations, improved electronic engineering has allowed us to release a dual color version of the MediaGlass projector, featuring a Pangolin software interface for easy content generation. This projector is ideal for stopping people in their tracks to look at a display, whether it be during a theater presentation, an in-store advertising display, or a tradeshow booth. With bright glowing lines appearing to move on a large scale in 3D, the viewer is entranced. A photo follows, but like recent 3D films, nothing compares to seeing it in person: 


March 1, 2010 Saint-Gobain Paris Quantum Glass Demo
SuperImaging is pleased to announce our first European installation, by leading glass company Saint-Gobain in Paris. Located in their A Glass House showroom at 4 passage Sainte Avoye (access 8 rue Rambuteau) 75003 Paris, SuperImaging’s patented display technology has been coupled with Quantum Glass’s innovative glass technologies, so our nanoparticles are embedded within the glass rather than a plastic film.

Demo at A Glass House

The exhibit is designed to show our technology with both clear and tinted windows. In the picture above, most of the image is located on the center tinted pane, while the bottom of the image is shown on the clear glass panel behind it. Our projectors and nanoparticles may be launched as part of their Quantum Glass line of innovative glass.


January 15, 2010 Single color Video on Glass System Now Available!
In response to popular demand for video on clear glass, we now have a video system available! Demos shown below use a DLP projector modified to output the correct bandwidth of light, so video appears on our optically clear films. In the top example, we show the demo with a visible light filter, so all the light is stopped on the film, while the red and green demos are shown without the light filter, so you can see how normal light goes through the film. The projection size shown is 30", but can be larger such as 100" by having the projector further away from the projection surface. Note the projection is brighter on a smaller surface, and with current technology the area behind the projection screen should be relatively dim to optimize the contrast. Available film colors are currently a transparent film that has images appear in white in 30" wide film, and our normal virtually 100% optically clear film that makes images appear in blue. 


March 25, 2009 Superimaging exhibits MediaGlass advertising solution at GlobalShop 2009. Ad agencies and retailers stopped in their tracks when they saw MediaGlass demonstrations at GlobalShop. With various animations of dancing couples, animals, fireworks, and moving logos, SuperImaging demonstrated once again that MediaGlass grabs people's attention, and stands out from standard messaging delivery systems so the prospective customers remember the message.


December 10, 2009   This video shows the MediaGlass messaging system installed at the Pavilion Antique store in San Anselmo, CA, just north of San Francisco. Line art animations of antique furniture move and spin on the window, for a 3D hologram feel. The window is kept completely clear, so merchandise is visible, while the Christmas tree and the animated falling snowflakes complement each other. The point of differentiation with this technology is that is allows one to put animated messaging on completely clear surfaces. Nothing else does that. You can use posters. You can use opaque LCD screens. You can hang a TV in the window. You can frost a window to make it translucent so it catches part but not all of a projected image. But none of the alternatives keep the window clear, so you can use the window for what it is, a transparent barrier, and still see through it. With all alternative technologies, you might as well have a wall instead of a window. As we all know, windows are better and invite customers into the store. Keep your windows. Use them for dynamic messaging with SuperImaging’s MediaGlass! Please visit for more information about the store or its location.


November 21, 2009 Industry players at LDI 2009 exhibited strong interest in SuperImaging film technology for large scale clear screens, such as in the stage foreground in front of an opening scene, as well as for other special effects in the background and on the sides of the stage.


July 1, 2009 SuperImaging is pleased to announce that we have moved to a new location. In a recessionary environment when most companies are laying off workers and shrinking capacity, we’re almost doubling our office, lab, and production space. We expect this will allow us to better handle the R&D challenges of the coming years, delivering more nanotech display solutions to a variety of industries.
