Flatter. Brighter. Thinner. Different!
Kwong, an Annapolis graduate and retired Navy officer (with impressive sea duty), is moving into the consumer electronics realm after entrepreneurial ventures on behalf of those "three-letter agencies" so common in nearby Washington, D.C. His passion for highest-tech capacity reflects his military training, but his desire for a low-cost solution seems to reject the "any price" philosophy of his former clientele.
Indeed, Kwong and his tech team (fewer than 15 engineers) is focusing on inexpensive technology as a breakthrough into the big-screen display market. That's one reason for his fondness for the Intel LCOS chip, although he insists that ScramTech is "imager agnostic."
Scram Technologies is far from alone in pursuing ways to lower the price and expand the capability of big/flat screen products. Other start-ups and familiar vendors are accelerating their efforts to replace the near-ubiquitous cathode-ray tube at affordable prices.
