We're pleased to announce that we've updated our website with some new features. So, go ahead and poke around.
One key feature that I'd like to introduce, especially to our blog readers and commenters, is our Community Forum. It's a place for you to find and share information about and experiences with the ST1080. It's brand new, so there is no content there. But please do go ahead and use it to your hearts content. Do let us know new categories that you'd like to see in the forum.
I welcome your feedback on the website update as well as the forum.
In the rush of getting the product out the door, I didn't get a chance to update you on some great updates to the product configuration. Here's a short summary:
Additional 2D and 3D support:
We heard you loud and clear: you want more input video formats. Below is the full list of 2D and 3D formats supported by the ST1080. Additionally, if there are other formats that we can support in the future, we will make the firmware upgrades available for download from the Support area of our website. Please be sure to register your product on our support website (it'll be live in a couple of days) so that we can contact you when new firmware upgrades are available.

AC Adapter with integrated USB cable:
We were able to find a nice USB AC adapter that has (1) an integrated USB cable with a micro-USB connect for connecting to the ST1080 Controller, and (2) regional AC plugs that are removable. We will pack the correct AC adapter for your country. If you need connectors for other regions, then please email us to let us know. If we get enough requests, we may just offer them for sale as an accessory on our website.
Quick Start Guide and registering your product:
Your shipment will include a Quick Start Guide. Detailed product information, including a user's manual, will be available only on our website. We're trying to be green.
Please register your product to take full advantage of the one-year limited warranty as well as to get on the mailing list for product notices such as firmware upgrades and other incentives on future products.
We are pleased to announce that we have shipped the first units today.
Here's a picture of the very first unit that we shipped to a USA customer. Of course, we put it in a separate shipping box.

The ST1080 product box. This is literally the first unit that we shipped today.
As we mentioned, we are working around to clock to fill the large backlog that we have. Many, many people have been asking for an estimated time of arrival for their order. Unfortunately, we can't say with any certainty. However, we will provide periodic updates in our blog.
Over the next days and weeks, we will be adding some features on our website like support, user's reference, and customer registration, among others. So be on the look out for that.
Thanks in advance for your continued patience as we work our way through the order backlog.

One of many racks holding in-process ST1080s. This rack shows the chassis for the Jet Black model. The plast wrapped pile on the upper right holds the see-through lens. We will ship with the light blocker applied, which can be easily removed.
Ok. The time has finally come and we are happy to announce that we will begin shipping on Monday. It's a bit later than what we were thinking at the last update. We appreciate your patience, continued enthusiasm and support.
We will work through this weekend (many in the future, I'm sure) and through multiple production-shifts to fulfill orders. We have a very big backlog of orders, so we will endeavor to work through them to the best of our ability.
We will continue to use this blog as well as our Facebook and Twitter channels to keep you posted on updates and news. We will also update our website with a Support section with detailed feature information, important product information, and other support related topics. Be sure to register your product (will be available at www.SiliconMicroDisplay.com/register) to receive news about firmware upgrades and other important product news.
