The team

CinemizerOLED is brought to you by a team of passionate people from Grenoble, in the french Alps. The glasses were launched by ZEISS, and teamed-up with our company, Microoled, in 2016 with one sole target: turning our pretty cool technologies into great emotions.

How it all started


The Cinemizer OLED story started in 2012 when two companies, Zeiss and Microoled, decided to work hand in hand to create a new viewing experience, the CinemizerOLED.


Zeiss, the renowned expert in optics, had worked on several versions Cinemizer prior to creating the CinemizerOLED. It was through creating those versions that the German company gained experience in designing head mounted optical devices. 


Over the past 10 years Microoled has been a world leader’s in the design and manufacturing of high quality micro-displays. The company, based in Grenoble, french Alps, has developped a unique AM-OLED technology allowing to build top-end micro-screens. These displays are combining a record-breaking density of pixels (6x denser than Apple’s retina display) together with ultra-rich colors and very deep blacks.
MICROOLED brings a whole new dimension to these application possibilities: video glasses, heads-up displays, camera viewfinders, medical devices.
Withing a couple of years the cinemizerOLED became a favorite for a number of experts.

The new chapter of the story


In 2016, Microoled and Zeiss’ partnership evolved. Following a company level agreement, Microoled took the full ownership of the product line, allowing the company to evolve from a component provider, to a manufacturer of finished goods.


Now they can deliver the best of what its technology can do to YOU.

In September 2016 the cinemizerOLED celebrated its come-back at the Champs-Elysees during the Paris Drone Festival: 150,000 people joined on the champs elysees to attend the most crowded race ever.


What’s next ?


The next pages of the story remain to be written.
Something is for sure, cinemizerOLED is just the first page of this new story.
At Microoled we are committed to turn our cool technologies
into great emotion. We do believe that #emotionMATTERS
and this will be what will drive
our future developments.

What are AM-OLED micro-displays ?


Micro-displays are small components that look like a semiconductor chip, at the surface
of which a tiny-sized screen is manufactured.
A typical microdisplay as manufactured by Microoled is in the range of 0.5 inch (~1.3cm) in diagonal.


What is OLED ?
You may know the difference between an OLED television screen and a standard LCD
(or anything-LED) screen: the first usually comes with a 3x to 4x higher price than the second.
Have a look at a side-by side comparison, and you will understand why so many people do go for OLED!
Compared to LCD technology, OLED indeed gathers a number of arguments, the main of all being the quality
of the color rendering, the image is simply richer, better, deeper. This is linked to a major technological
difference between LCD and OLED: LCD needs a ‘backlight’ to operate: there is an ‘always-on’ light source
at the back of the pixel screen, the liquid crystal transparency is then modulated to create the various
color to be rendered. On the OLED side, the pixel directly emits the light. And this makes the difference:
When ‘black’ is to be displayed, the OLED pixel is simply turned off and zero light is emitted.
On the LCD side, the crystal is tuned opaque but ‘some’ light would be transmitted,
hence the grayish color of some ‘black’ screen. Same principle explains the color.

A given color is a mix of the color provided by the different pixels, a ‘pure’ color may require that one
of the sub-pixel is fully switched off.. which OLED does better!

In short, the advantages of OLED are:


  • Infinite contrast : OLED is capable of providing the ‘perfect BLACK’.
  • A larger color gamut, capability to render the full spectrum of visible colors
  • Bright and saturated colors due to OLED’s capability to render ‘true colors’
  • A lower power consumption thanks to absence of backlight, hence offering longer battery life for mobile applications.
  • Wide viewing angles: light emission being less directive: an OLED screen can be seen from a wider angle range.
  • Faster refresh rate and lower response time (0.1ms) enabling no reminiscence from one image to the next. We therefore avoid ‘motion blur’ effect that may happen when displayed image moves fast.
  • The use of less polluting materials in the manufacturing pipeline.


OLED, an Organic Light-Emitting Diode, is a thin-film semiconductor device based on organic materials that emits light when a current is applied.
The OLED is composed of several layers of organic materials, each one having specific functions like e.g. charge transport or light generation.
The term AMOLED means Active-Matrix OLED. The ‘active-matrix’ part refers to the driving electronics. When you display an image, you actually
display it line by line (sequentially) as you can only change one line at a time. An AMOLED uses an electronic device which contains a storage
capacitor that maintains the line pixel states, and so enables large size (and large resolution) displays.

Well, we guess you know a bit more about us and our products.
