SHENZHEN, China, May 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Appotronics Corporation Ltd. (SSE Star Market listed company, Code: 688007.SH) and AIRBUS China Innovation Centre (ACIC) held a strategic cooperation signing ceremony in Shenzhen, which means the two leading companies from the laser display industry and the aviation industry have formally reached strategic partnership.
It is reported that the laser display application project based on aviation products jointly promoted by Appotronics and Airbus currently has no competitors of the same type in the market and has first-mover advantages. If it can be successfully developed and commercialized quickly, the market space will be imaginative.
Based on laser light source technology and laser projection solutions from Appotronics, they will explore aviation application possibilities and application scenarios including commercial fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.
Airbus will propose related display requirements according to the scenarios, and Appotronics will provide solutions, and the two parties will discuss the relevant technical feasibility. Appotronics is responsible for the completion of program development and projection research and development, and the final industrialization will be jointly promoted by both parties.
Appotronics invented ALPD® technology in the year of 2007. ALPD® solved the problems that impeded the marketization of the RGB laser display technology, and became the pioneer of the technology industrialization on a global scale. This technology has become the mainstream technology in the international laser display field, and successfully established China’s global leading position in the field of laser display.
ALPD® technology architecture, as an underlying key architecture, can be extended to apply in many fields. Based on the pioneered and continuously upgraded ALPD® technology architecture, Appotronics has invented the core component of laser display: the laser optical engine, which was been applied in film, TV, education, large venue display and other scenarios to develop numerous laser display products and systematic solutions.
AIRBUS China Innovation Centre (ACIC), the first innovation centre set up by Airbus in Asia, bases in Shenzhen. The centre serves to fully leverage local advantages including the innovative talents, partners and innovation ecosystem in Shenzhen to design, testing and certification projects in five areas, including hardware lab, cabin experience, connectivity, manufacturing innovation and urban air mobility.
In addition, the content of Appotronics’s cooperation with Airbus also includes aviation certification technical reserves. The aviation certification system has high standards and strict requirements. Most of the products or technologies that have passed aviation certification are absolutely leading in the industry. Appotronics is also in a leading position in the field of laser display in the field of original technology innovation and global patent layout.
It is reported that by the end of 2020, Appotronics had a total of 2,890 patent applications and granted patents worldwide, of which about 70% are invention patents. The original ALPD® technology has been regarded as the development direction of next-generation laser display by the international industry , and has been cited by the industry, domestic and foreign enterprises more than 600 times.
AIRBUS China Innovation Centre focuses on the development and cooperation of on-board hardware lab, cabin experience, connectivity, manufacturing innovation and urban air mobility, and has made positive progress. In this cooperation with Appotronics, the two parties will jointly explore a variety of application scenarios of laser display technology in the aviation field, create a futuristic, digital, and personalized cabin flight experience for passengers.
Dr. LI Yi, the founder and chairman of Appotronics, said they always believe that technology innovation should serve a better life. While completing a number of original technological breakthroughs "from 0 to 1", they also promoted the market application of these laser display technologies in cinema, engineering, education and household fields, thus creating more new categories and tracks.
This cooperation with Airbus is a breakthrough attempt in the aviation field, and it may carve out a brand new business model, combined with Airbus’s world-class channel advantages and brand influence, maximizes the commercial value of laser display solutions in the aviation field, and ultimately achieves win-win cooperation.
